C is for 'Careful now', D is for 'Download surprise': Microsoft to resurrect optional Windows 10 updates as 'Previews'


Re: Refunds for repairs?

Drew Scriver said, My dad (who is old enough to have been on sentry duty on the East German border during the Cuba crisis) is rather computer-challenged.

Linux is not then an option in this case. The GUI is totally different to what he is presently using. It is bad enough trying to find shit when MS used to release a new O/S. A significantly/totally different O/S will just add to the man's stress levels.

If Linux, in all the different flavours, was the answer, then surely they would have a massive market share of the desktop operating system and not just the present fanboi users.
