As much as I need to upgrade to Windows 10, my
biggest concern is, that as a person who values his privacy, I do not like the
fact that Microsoft are making it more and more difficult to turn off/disable,
so many of the spying and tracking features which are attached to Windows 10.
The one feature, which most of all I would like to turn off/disable, is
the sodding, annoying, interfering feature, Cortana.
If anyone knows how to make it, so that any
and all searches I wish to perform on my Windows 10 machine, are restricted to
my local machine, then I would be glad to hear from you. I can always use a
search engine, such as Google or DuckDuckGo for internet searches.

I will weigh in on this, not trying to argue, but I had a windows XP
computer I bought in 2004. I used it until December 20, 2018 when it
gave up the ghost 14 1/2 years with absolutely NO
problems! I used Viper and Firefox to access the web.
I used it for 14 years through Vista (which was terrible, windows 8, windows
8.1 and then Windows 7 with absolutely no problems even with no security
updates. I like Windows 7 and hope to use it a long time as well.
Windows 10 seems to have a lot of issues which of yet are not resolved....just
my 2 cents.

I have, however, witnessed an awful lot of clinging to dead OSes,
and some people are going to do it regardless of how bad an idea it is to do
so. But those programs that currently run under Win7 in their current
versions will keep doing so for a very, very long time.
It still only
makes sense, if one is sticking with a given OS ecosystem, to keep up-to-date
with the latest version of that OS as a daily driver.

psychology of adultery has been falsified by conventional morals, which
assume, in monogamous countries, that attraction to one person cannot co-exist
with a serious affection for another. Everybody knows that this is
untrue. . .
