Re: windows 9

Be good if they do Windows 9 for £14.99 upgrade for vista/7/8/8.1 users, like they did when 8 came out, or even better for free  Roll eyes

There is a well known pattern with Microsoft .......

Windows Millennium - rubbish
Windows XP - brilliant
Windows Vista - rubbish
Windows 7 - brilliant
Windows 8 - rubbish

Re: windows 9

I've still got a disc for Win95, and come to think of it DOS6 and a few others as well. Ah, the days when things were nice and simple  Wink

When I was moving to my last house I found a bunch of old diskettes for things like FoxPro and dBase and tossed them because I hadn't so much as heard of the software in like 20 years.  Of course, the very next job I went to .. they were still using FoxPro to run some of their key systems Huh
And despite my best efforts to replace FoxPro with things like Oracle and SQL Server, I think it's still there ..
