Better get Grandpa off Windows 7 because zero-day bug in Zoom allows remote code execution on vintage OS


Re: Try moving gramma to Windows 10, if you like pain.

Honestly I doubt it would have been any more painful to just move her to Linux.

I made the choice to abandon windows when I decided to retire, as I couldn't be bothered to ascend the learning curve with WIn10. There was a lot of Duck Ducking in the early days, but now it's mostly settled down nicely. I like to keep my days interesting and grey cells active by using Debian Testing, but even then it *just works*. If I had to support another user it would be a trivial matter now.

Oddly enough I do have MS's Visual Code installed, and a few legacy Win programs on Wine, but I've managed to find decent native programs for everything else I need.
