Win10 came out in 2015...

Some of you guys are a bit slow on the uptake! 😂

My work computer is W10 and I like it. My home PC is W7 and am holding out updating it.

I still use 7 and refused to assimilate to 10......11 sounds scary😂 to me.

I’m sure it’ll be horrible, per usual.

Thankfully Linux is great, and there is always a Mac for the non-tech savvy folks

My IMac is probably 12 years old? Maybe older?
Truth is I barely turn it on anymore.
On directional drilling jobs everything is W10 on company computers.
The problem with system upgrades is that every directional program is 3rd party.
They usually take a long time to upgrade their programs for compatibility.

I always thought Mac was for people that worked on their computer, not worked ON their computer.
I would say that’s still true, they do a great job of simplifying their platform.

Macs are computers for dummies and I’m fine with that.

My new gig is all PC and I’ve had more trouble with my laptop in the last 4 weeks, than I had in my entire 25 year career that was all Mac.

You work for a smart company...

All of these companies getting hit with mulit million dollar ransom ware payments are probably running old versions of XP still.

Win10 has ransom ware protection more or less built in. Hell yeah it's a pain to upgrade. But million dollar ransom ware payments would have to be even worse!

I won't do the beta on Win11, but I'll upgrade as soon as a stable release is available.

Most business are stuck on XP still. Costs mega dollars to upgrade custom built software.

Costs even more to pay ransom payments though. Bean counters are dumb.
