        ...am retracting my love for Win8.1. Went back to Win7pro. Will have to check out Win10, down the line.

        Windows 7 Pro has extended support until January 14, 2020, http://support.microsoft.com/lifecycle/?c2=14019

        I've decided to stick with it, unless something urgent comes up. By 2020, we will have at least Windows 11, probably 12, or whatever they name it.

        That thinking isn't all bad. I went from Windows-7-pro to the NEW free Windows 10. Don't like that I can't do a format and install under that umbrella.

        Went back to a Windows 8.1 disk. Actually win8.1 has some customisable features that win10 took away.

        Heck... I paid 257.00 for the oem version of Windows-2000-pro. I'd still be running it, IF mickey and the software companies hadn't stopped supporting it..!

    Since Dos 6.0, Win 3.1, Win 95A.. then 95b, Win98, (jumped past ME) too buggy, hung onto win2000pro for as long as I could, went to XP pro..(win2000 with eye candy), skipped the buggy Vista.. and tried the beta of Win7pro. I fell in love with it. So I bought three disks at 195.00 a piece.
    Took longer to like Windows 8. I have accepted in love with Windows-8. realise 10 is coming and is here to stay.....
