RIP Windows 7


Welcome to what Mac has been like for years and years.

I upgraded too, two weeks ago, and you know what I found? One can automatically resize photos to put them up here on bajanomad.

So wonderful!

Installed Win 10 when it first was offered - easiest OS install I've ever had and zero issues ever since.

I bought a new computer a few weeks about but have been thinking of upgrading the old one as a back up-travel computer. Do you have to pay for the upgrade or are there free ones?

I like the fact that MacOS runs UNIX under the covers, but not the fact that I have to buy my hardware exclusively from Apple ecosystem. Windows will run on a greater variety of hardware, but Microsoft's planned obsolescence guarantees that most software and some hardware (e.g. older printers) will not work after an upgrade. My wife experienced both when upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 10, although she's otherwise happy with the change.

I run Debian Linux on my laptop, as it's lightweight and features an abundance of free software. I don't mind tinkering to get things like Bluetooth and wireless printing to work, as I usually buy refurbished laptops at a fraction of new ones. To each his (or her) own, I guess.

Just bought three Dell Latitude laptops (Intel i5's) off ebay. All with clean Win 10 installs.

I wiped the Win 10, and installed Linux Mint.

Posting this from a Chromebook.
