    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.).

    Discussion about that sort of thing here that specifically mentions Texas.
    https://www.reddit.com/r/cscareerquestions/comments/68g38s/software_engineer_title_legality/

    Also this: https://www.chron.com/news/article/Law-to-decide-if-programmers-are-engineers-2121943.php
    "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 :)
