To be honest, I (and perhaps at least a few others) am growing weary of 'the latest and best' that Microsoft 'forces' upon us.
I use the word 'force' as although I realize the 'latest and best' is a viable business decision for Microsoft, it can be more than a tad of a nightmare for some people, perhaps.
There seems to be two choices each time a 'latest and best' OT system is released.
One can buy the new OS (usually along with an entirely new computer) - and then purchase new software, as well.
Or one can keep their present OS system/computer until it finally dies - but in return for doing this, that "unsupported" nasty rears it's unattractive little head. The new software created to keep up with the 'latest and best' OT often won't run on an older computer - and worse, this can include the security programs vital to computer user's survival.
With the financial crunch hitting not just the States but so many other Countries, wonder if there really will be waiting lines for this newest version of Microsoft's OS?
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.
While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.
