If it takes an automobile about three years or more to go from a sketch on paper to the assembly line. How long do you think it should take an OS to be ready for release. MS needs to start years ahead of the EOL for whatever is the present OS so that it is at least stable enough fort them to even consider it release worthy.Why are they starting work on Windows 12 already..?
They still have issues to fix with Windows 10 and 11 lol!
ooh alright..If it takes an automobile about three years or more to go from a sketch on paper to the assembly line. How long do you think it should take an OS to be ready for release.

Hi thereThere will I think be a replacement for Windows 11- what the "name" will be is an entirely different question.
I would expect Microsoft to be putting together the development team for Win 11's replacement soon if not already, which would tie in with the leaked information that started this site amongst other things, ( we like to start building our membership early in the release cycle, and a lot of them are regulars that have been with several or all of our sites for a long time)
As Windows 10 is due to go out of support in late 2024 and Windows 11 will be Five years from release around a year later this would all fit into Microsoft's recent release cycle ... We will see what happens but whatever happens we want to be around as always to provide a place for self help for users
Nice to know - and hopefully the "Putin thing" will be long gone by then.
Slightly Off topic but a little bit of History many people including those in the UK might be unaware of.
My grandad had the experience in Iceland during WWII when the country was "Invaded" in 1940 by the UK army as a precaution against the Nazi's using the strategic part of the North Atlantic as a safe staging point for their U-boats to attack and sink vital supplies on ships coming from the USA and Canada and also prevent allied shipping and planes from re-supplying and refuelling etc.
In 1940 Iceland was still a Danish colony -- even though Denmark was occupied by the Germans. The Brits were replaced in 1941 by the USA - the occupation by either set of forces was not resisted and benefits were had all round -- Iceland was quite poor at that time -- My grandad used to have to use freezing outdoor toilets in -5 deg C or colder in the winter and fresh vegitables were a rarity since supplies from occupied Europe were obviously not a priority in the middle of a hideous war.
After Iceland got independence from Denmark after the war - it's been a strong NATO member ever since even though it's military contribution is about Zero -- how big can a military be with only 300,000 inhabitants --smaller than most london Boroughs !!.

Hopefully a little bit of forgotten or unreported history can enliven these days of gloom.
Your more than welcome.Thank you. Indeed, both interesting and enlivening.

At least here we have the advtage of magnificent scenery etc

Ist one magnificent waterfall -- see the size of the "Human" atthe bottom to get an appreciation of the scale of the thing.

As for Energy - we've abundant spare capacity of Gethermal and Hydro -- I'm amazed UK / Norway hasn't thought about a 1600 KM undersea cable -- can't be that difficult these days -- could supply endless renewable energy - no need for Russian Gas etc !!!!
You've got decent tidal flows = R. Severn. R Humber, The Wash etc -- 100% predictable for 1000's of years and infinitely re-newable. Also 100% "Putin Proof". Wind farms can be worse than useless when wind not blowing or peversly when there's too much !!!!. Smaller localised ones are better and don't damage agricultural land which is needed for growing crops or feeding farm animals.The uk does not use a lot of gas from other than the British supplies - Europe, (mainly Germany, I believe), are the main sufferers with recent issues around sanctions, although the way the oil system works means that prices everywhere increase when one supply reduces.
The UK is in the process of switching to renewables Wind, Solar, and Nuclear, (not too keen on the last one)
Unfortunately for me the sprouting of Wind Turbines everywhere means I have to work harder to remove them from landscape images these days
