    Makes me Wanna Cry.

    Win 7 is my favorite everyday Windows OS.

    I am glad Win 98SE is still OK.

    Looks like Vista is OK also.

    what do you want to bet this was written by a Gen-Z-er?

    Microsoft has put out a warning to those still using its Windows XP,
    Windows 7 or other early operating systems (OS),

    .

    Well, someone has to look after all the geezers still using Windows 2000.

    I always considered "early" versions of Windows as commercially accepted malware.

    But that's just me...

    My experience with COBOL - it tasted like ... chicken -er- BASIC. In a word, verbose.

    Believe it or not, it was a TI 960 "Link Editor" (it linked together independently "assembled" tagged object decks (programs) together into one relocatable "object" code "deck") ... it originally ran on an IBM System/360.

    The assembler was written in FORTRAN ... don't ask me why they used FORTRAN for one and COBOL for the other - those decisions were 'cast' years before I got there; we were just 'picking up the pieces' and making them play on hardware available in the late 80's (moving from the mainframe to DEC VAXes).

    COBOL???? No. no, no, no, no! It's FORTRAN IV!

    Like me.

    I worked on the development of that OS. Office 2000 also.

    That OS rocked in the day. Still works for us Old Farts.
