If it goes to a cloud OS you won't find me there. I'll be sitting here dragging up the rear.
Kudos to you Wolf, on 2 counts: acknowledging the great Rex Allen and putting down the cloud. I'm with you on both.
Meeting Rex doesn't make you old---he's been gone less than 15 years, even though he is almost totally forgotten as a singer. Few people in Nashville would even know who he was.
I'll upgrade just to stay semi-current and get longer support, subject to these caveats:
1: It isn't hopelessly tied into a Microsoft account or subscriptions or the dreaded cloud. Just give me a retail disc that can be re-installed at will on any single machine.
2: It doesn't have any as yet unknown show-stoppers, which is unlikely now that it isn't so touch screen-centric.
I've got the Tech Preview burned to a disc, but I doubt I'll ever install it. I don't have enough curiosity when there are tens of thousands of guinea pigs willing to leap into the breach on my behalf.
