I quit from three packs of cigarette-sized cigars to nothing immediately one day after watching a smokie die of throat cancer. He convinced me when: he lit up a cigarette because he wanted to die happy. The smoke never got to his lungs. The medical equipment stopped the smoke and drained it off to a jar under his deathbed. He did not die happy in that aspect. He passed away suffering tremendously from his affliction. I was thirty then and am 72, now. I stopped dreaming about smoking somewhere around the age of 62. Once you decide to completely stop and stay smoke free, you will live with the desire to smoke for a long time. I merely decided that no chemical was going to control me without it being worth my while to let it.

You are no less than me, so I know that you can do it. Do not let me down. We depend upon you for your daily inputs here!

Happy Thanksgiving.

I am sorry to say this, but it does not apply to all "moms"!

Apparently I snore so loudly that it frightens my passengers while I am driving.

 I have installed 1803 to 4 systems (2 laptops, 1 desktop, 1 tablet). An 8th Core i3, 8GB, HDD system failed to reinstall the drivers for a Canon TS 9020 printer. Other than that, there have been no issues. I seriously recommend Restarting the system two more times after Desktop appears and the system settles after the upgrade. Something about everything not all arriving at the same time after the first appearance of Desktop. UNC :)

The information I have indicates that the version is 1803.

You chose to exclude many WinX users. What is your interest in this matter?

Microsoft is moving to Windows as a service and it is understandable that they want to rid older, insecure versions of Windows. Frankly, my position is to those I provide assistance, they move to WinX or find someone else for service. I have heard many excuses in the Tech Media and I am convinced that in two years, their posts will all be done in emojis. Those that I once thought had actual expertise have been exposed for their concern for controversy instead of providing guidance. IMO Win7, 8, and 8.1 are junk; although WinX is frustrating on some levels because of Microsoft's move to a Universal operating system. I have used Linux and MAC OS and keep returning to Windows because of its versatility and security. For the "old programs" argument, I query whether the individual has researched the WinX Compatibility Mode and remind them that WinX comes in both 32-bit and 64-bit modes. Only issues I have ever had were with 8-bit and a few really archaic 16-bit games. Just sayin'.
