Windows 10 Is Five Years Old Today

One comment from the article
"I’m still angry that Windows 10 rebooted in the middle of a three-day GPU upscale test last week, requiring me to restart the nearly complete run from scratch. "

I think an unexpected re-boot happened a few months ago during the end of a postlude. Totally unacceptable. Made me more than a little frustrated because that never ever happened during more than 10 years of using Win 7 Could be why Win 7 is still fairly widely being used - offline of course. Made me seriously think about going back to Win 7. As a real time church organist, I will never use or need most of the new features? of Win 10 for our church organ. Very likely I will go back to Win 7 when we start having in person church services again. Personally, I'm not convinced of advantages of Wjn 10 over Win 7 for a dedicated HW church organ.

I was sent this link by a "friend" of Win 7 user. Suggest you read and possibly use the info at your your discretion.

https://windowsreport.com/use-windows-7-forever/

And another:idea,again at your own discretion, officially not from Hauptwerk.
