goodbye windows 7Bwa-a-h-h: AN OPINION | Microsoft, we hate this change … just as much as we hated the change from Windows XP. Frankly, the upgrades and news systems that you revere are major impositions on Customers. The operating system on our laptop is the “new and enhanced” Windows 10 … and we hate it. Microsoft, you may look at this as an advancement — we view it differently. We look at this as a way to sell new systems and replacement computers. We’re quite comfortable with what we have and we will, begrudgingly, be forced to go along with your forced “improvement.” We’ll even have to carve out time to learn how to drive Windows 10. Sure glad that mechanics at car repair shops don’t tell me they only work on newer cars.
