What I see happening on the commercial computer front (Microsoft is a commercial entity, not your friend) is a squeezing out of the individual entrepreneur. The objective is to put small operators in the position of having to pay for high priced “professional level” access to internet tools. Tinkering and inventing is almost a crime.
My XP has not had any updates in over a year, so I assume support is already gone.
The other day I went in the Windows Update site and requested that it “Check for updates” and it went into an infinite “Sweeping Gauge” which I finally interrupted after an hour because nothing was happening.
We must take to the streets!
