Love NASCAR, but like ranchhand said, a driver promoting Win10 makes MSFT look desperate. To make sales they need to MAKE BETTER EXPLANATIONS, not the blahblahblah of Nadella speeches ZDNET feels constrained to report, not the dancing teens with Surface, but SHOW ME THE MONEY demonstrations why Win10 is better.
As it stands, until I came here and finally started posting over the weekend, I knew nothing good about Win10, but some arcane needle-in-the-haystack blog post about MS Office 95 running on Win10, which I saw here in this forum, got me interested.
But oh, MSFT never does advertise stuff like that. Which makes the OS suspicious, even though this is good news for backwards-compatibility. Lots of companies still have MS Office 95 records, see. I'm among them. For Office 95 can read DOS files. I've been in business since 1985, and have a ton of DOS wordprocessing. Still use Multimate II, which was a Fortune 100 staple for a long time.
WE HAVE BEEN BURNED TOO MANY TIMES, so now we are skeptical. That's the fact. Every new OS disrupts operations for two years, and when we finally get the hang of the new and less-functional OS, a new one comes out. What is wrong with this picture?
