      Did they give you one for Windows 10?

        Nope. I became so disillusioned with the Win8 beta that I stopped being part of the official beta testing process.

        Figured I had more of an impact throwing stones from outside the fence than joining the rebellions within.

      Congratulations… & that MVP certificate is Well Deserved. Did M$ send it to you before or after the “official” release in October 2009? I echo Seff’s question: Did you get 1 for Win10 in 2015… & what about Win8 in 2012?!

      Windows 8.1, 64-bit, back in Group A... & leaning toward Windows 10 V2004. As long as it's a Lot Less Buggy!

        Well, perhaps no more awards like that one, but having been of service and being thanked repeatedly and sincerely for it, can be a better reward.

        As to bidding “good night, Sweet Prince” to 7, for me is going to be more like:

        “Oh, baby
        Don’t matter for how long life goes on
        I’ll Still be loving you, girl.
        I know it’s real
        This love I feel
        Baby, sure as the skies are blue
        I’ll be around
        Won’t let you down
        Baby, no one else will do.”
        (From “I’ll be loving you”- New Kids on the Block.)

        And never doubt this: we’ll keep getting together, you, sweet 7 and I, to get something done you, and only you, still have what it takes to let me do it. But NO BROWSING or EMAILING, do you hear me?!

        I don’t think the cert was for being an MVP. I think it was signed by the head of the MVP program. Microsoft changed its “Windows MVP” designation to “Windows Insider MVP,” and I lost interest.

      Woody, thanks for your excellent care and service that you have provided us Windows 7 owners. You’ve stuck with us, time and time again, over all the good and bad. And since we seem to be in the mood to ‘sing’ your praises, I think this Tina Turner hit says it all to both you and our dearest Windows 7:

      “You’re simply the best, better than all the rest
      Better than anyone, anyone I ever met
      I’m stuck on your heart, I hang on every word you say
      Tear us apart, baby, I would rather be dead.
      Oh you’re the best.”

      (Windows 7 Home Premium, SP1, x64 Group B)

      I am sorry but I won’t be saying goodnight to Windows 7 yet. The young prince still has much to do and very adequately indeed.

      Pound for pound the best OS ever despite Microsoft dropping the ball constantly. I haven’t been patching for 18 months so it’s business as usual.

      Everything is locked down and I will firewall out the false flags and noise that are sure to come.
