“The site apologized to those still using IE7 for the fact its new jobs board doesnâ€™t render properly in their browser. IE 7 is seven years old. It runs on Windows XP and Windows Vista. Microsoft will stop providing extended support for Windows XP on April 8 this year. Extended support for Windows Vista finishes in 2017. The company is a recruitment site for nurses and medical employers, based in Microsoftâ€™s home state of Washington.”The lock-in of users of that other OS is so horrible that the costs of digging out of the grave M$ has helped you dig is huge. Look at this. A company is giving away $free PCs to its customers rather than support that abomination of the web, Internet Exploder web browser… That’s just one lock-in of the hundreds M$ has created over the years. Can you really afford to keep digging that hole deeper?

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
