Windows good and bad

evelyn @ 2:35 pm

Back at last.

It took a further week to recover from Holy Week, which went surprisingly well. And on Sunday I climbed the gallery stairs to find a beautiful stained-glass window in place. Lovely.

My other Windows experience has not been so good. My new computer was delivered over a fortnight ago, but I left it in the box until after Holy Week. Thank goodness I did.

After several happy years working with Windows 7, I have been bullied by Microsoft into their unfriendly Windows 10. Microsoft forces you to use Windows 10 by refusing to make Windows 7 available on a new computer, forces its own browser and email system on you by making it either difficult or impossible to install your previous ones, and does its best to force you to relinquish privacy settings. I haven’t even started trying to install my music type-setting software, but I foresee problems galore there. Why is Microsoft allowed to have this power to mess up everyone’s daily life?

But it is nice when the sun shines and I have multi-coloured lights surrounding me as I play the organ.
