I'm going back to Windows 3.1. That will teach 'em.

Really liked W7 and XP. I understand W10 life expires in 2025 so I shall see who outlives who.

Yep, me too. I'm still using Windows 7. I just don't care for the tablet/phone looking interface. Of course there are several other reasons, but 7 works for me, so here I am. Another semi-Luddite. [emoticon]

FWIW, I read that the only processors approved for Windows 11 are Intel, and only latest generation of Intel processors. Has to do with something about secure booting, I do believe.
Not so on the processors. See Here.

XP was the bomb when my employer entered the computer age. 7 was the last good version. Not much love from me for 10. I don't want my desktop looking like a cellphone. Already being e-mail blasted by MS about 11. I'll wait til the announcement they no longer support 10.

MS says my PC is not compatible with the alpha version of W11 but it will run the pre-release version. It also says it's not compatible with W10 which it has been running quite successfully since before W10 was released.

Thank you. The last I had read was that only Intel processors were being supported. Nice to know that has changed.

Yeah, maybe. But I believe a lot of the successful ransomware attacks have been on Windows 10 machines ...

That's not quite the complete story. Those recent ransomware attacks were the result of social engineering malware, where the end user allowed the malware to run by falling for phishing emails.

Good luck running Window XP/7 on the internet, as hackers only need to exploit an unpatched vulnerability and install malware without you knowing it. Even kill/disable any security software you have running.

Win 11 is basically a revenue enhancement for Microsoft.

It's a free update for WIN 10 users. Guess they're making tons of money from that?
