"Modernization" - that word does not mean what they think it means
Every time Micros~1 makes reference to "modern", we end up with:
a) Flatter-looking UI
b) removed customizations
c) Lipstick on the boar (and not even the oinky end)
d) bloat, cruft, and broken
e) less efficient
f) "No, really, we actually fixed it this time"
g) tracking, spying, unnecessary cloudiness, adware, and fewer features.
and so on
I fear what "modernization" they are referring to THIS time...
