    Re: Covid Testing Thought Experiment

    How about, if a person gets ill from covid-19, and has not been vaccinated, they would be liable for the cost of their own medical treatment?

    Re: Win 11 upgrade

    I have been comparing the BETA W11 Pro with the current released version, and there are a few mods to it:-

    2] They have...

    Windows key + Up arrow does restore the width, but the height remains at 50%.
    I think I will use Firefox instead.

    Re: Win 11 upgrade

    I have Windows 11 dual booted on my laptop. There is a script which replaces the loader in the iso with a Windows 10 loader. Once this is done it installs as Windows 10, no problems. Very stable. I...

    This explains why my copy of W11 has never done an automatic update, & never bothered me with notices. Best Windows I have ever used!

    Re: MS wont stop you installing WIn11.

    W11 will be available to the public on October 5th. If your computer has ever had W10 activated on it you shouldn't have any hassles.

    They also say that if you reinstall W11 it will not get updates! What a blessing! Almost makes Windows worthwhile. I have used W11 for a couple of months now, and found it to be very stable, fast,...

    They could both run Windows 11. Microsoft just wants you to buy a new computer, and add to the land fill. The trick is to put the data from the W7 iso together with a W10 loader on your USB stick. It...

    SWMBO uses my first Dell Vostro bought in 2008, with XP installed. It has never had a problem, and with a SSD installed, with Linux Mint it runs like a new one.
