    I thought of another reason to use Win 10: When customers insist on it.:p

    Most of our basic imagers/wipers have used Win XP years ago, then Win 7 up until recently as their OS on which we run our applications. When they boot up, they boot to the application so the user normally wouldn't know what the OS was unless they specifically took measures to find out. Then, along comes the Government....

    ...who insists any new hardware they buy must be Win 10, and nothing else is acceptable.

    So guess who had to update all our apps to run on Win 10?:) We just completed this and will be shipping products only with Win 10...not because we really wanted to...

    Government agencies are by far our biggest customers, so the Golden Rule kicks in.

    I reprogrammed my C128 error prompts in ROM.

    I changed "Redo from start" to "Redo then fart"

    I just had to. That was years ago when I was a kid.

    Now that I have a grandchild I may need to add that, If memory allows.

    128 kb to play with may make it a bit hard for graphics, And pull finger input to make it work properly for sound.

    Thank you for the suggestion.

    Yah, uninstalling and then reinstalling the printer driver does work. Every damn time you want to print something. Obviously, this is not a real solution.

    It is...until the next Windows update. Give it some time, and its status will change from an MS bug to an MS feature.:D

    Having problems with sound as well? Windows update.:mad:

    Funny you should mention the sound...

    Just upgraded a laptop for a local ham from Win 7 to Win X. For some strange reason, Win X turned off the speaker jack... by default, only USB connected speakers would work by default.

    Easy enough to fix, just odd behavior.
