Thank you, dev. Whenever I see something like this, I have mixed feelings. On one hand, I'm glad I'm over Windows, on the other, I feel sorry for those still trapped in the manipulative MS economy.

It's almost impossible to run Win7 updates now. MS has sabotaged the process to push people to Win10.

Linux is ready for prime time. I have used it now as my main OS for a good year, and while there are a few areas where it's not as polished as Windows, it is solid as a rock, fast and trouble-free. And it comes relatively free of the politics and greed that characterize MS products. Now that I have LibreOffice set up to suit my needs, including a powerful set of macros, I no longer need MS Office. That was my main stumbling block. And WINE allows most Windows programs to be run anyway. Slimjet, BTW, runs great on Linux.

Those who haven't tried it should run Linux from a DVD or USB stick to test it out. It has come a long way.
