I stayed with Windows 7 till the old computer crashed and burned, now using Widows 10,(bit only for ham radio programs.) For every thing else I use Devuan Linux (used to be Debian until Lennert and his crowd corrupted it.).
I am using now GBWhatsapp For Android App here and I think this is one of the best app.
Discussion about that sort of thing here that specifically mentions Texas.

"Texas is becoming a laughingstock of the global high-technology community," said Steve Taylor, director of corporate affairs for Applied Materials.
It sounds like there has been a law change after that article in 2003.
"Engineer" is such a vague term. I can understand restrictions on prefixing that with "Certified" or "Licensed" or whatever the local jurisdiction uses to basically say "we think this guy is safe to do dangerous things" but a restriction on simply calling yourself an "engineer" seems a bit dictatorial.
That said, my employer calls me a "software engineer" but I've never been comfortable with that title. Some of that is personally historical. I started doing an engineering degree but for various reasons switched to science after the first year but then got into software as a job. Almost 40 years later I'm finally an "engineer" which is something I don't really feel entitled to call myself
