        Adapting means learning — learning the capabilities of old and new features, operating systems, operations, and functions. Necessary tools are usually right-at-hand and easily available with exploration. Adapting is an exciting day-to-day challenge.

        Adapting to IOT is also an important skill. Susan’s article also mentioned IOT intrusiveness. That’s one way to look at it. The other way is to consider it usefulness. Learn the skill of taming and managing the IOT devices in your home and you can find their intrusiveness to be very useful. It’s a matter of perspective and comfort with ever evolving technology

        Hello Will,

        what I would have liked for many years is a simple Windows engine, like the immortal Deux-Chevau to which I can add apps at my will. 95 % of what is currently offered by any of the Windows versions is simply usless to me.

        Best regards

        Kurt

        Adapting is an exciting day-to-day challenge.

        That one made me laugh. Challenge I’ll buy. Exciting? Maybe, but I don’t get that excited when I’m tearing my hair out!

        Will Fastie: I agree on this one entirely with you.

        And I am going here beyond that to write that I believe sometimes staying put is both a calming and rewarding thing to do.

        For example, in my own case, I think that not upgrading (and paying) for Office 219 when 216, now out of support, is still quite sufficient for doing all that I need to do and probably shall ever need to do with Office, is a calming and rewarding thing for me to do.

        That staying on Windows 7 for the few things I still need to do with Windows and are possible without accessing the Internet, is another calming and rewarding thing for me to do (and, yes, cheaper and less troubling than any other options, in practice or in principle also available to me, except for those non-Windows things, somewhat less prone to being challenging, listed in my signature panel below this comment).

        Windows 7 Professional, SP1, x64 Group W (ex B) & macOS Mojave + Linux (Mint)
