Which is to say, I’ve upgraded my desktop system to Windows 10 and – so far, anyhow – nothing vital has either exploded or disappeared into the ether.
I did take good advice, though, and didn’t use the “Express” setup option, because it defaults to sharing everything with everyone everywhere, which is a stupid thing to default to, but it wouldn’t be a Windows operating system without at least one stupid default.
(And no, I don’t want to switch to the Apple side of the force. There are people for whom the Mac/iWhatever interface is deft and intuitive, and there are people for whom it is intensely frustrating, and I’m one of the latter. )
So now I’m checking to make sure all of my previously installed apps are still working as advertised, this post being a test of Windows Live Writer. If you’re reading these words, then presumably Live Writer tested sat.
