    I wonder if they will skip Windows 13!

    I'm running Windows 10 LTSC on my main machine, supported until 2029, seems to have behaved very well over the two years or more since installation.

    On another machine is Windows 11 Pro (on unsupported hardware) seems to be fairly good. This machine feeds a big(ish) TV for YouTube and and other video.

    On a third Machine is Linux Mint.

    “Nothing discloses real character like the use of power. It is easy for the weak to be gentle. Most people can bear adversity. But if you wish to know what a man really is, give him power. This is the supreme test. It is the glory of Lincoln that, having almost absolute power, he never abused it, except on the side of mercy.”

    “You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police ... yet in their hearts there is unspoken fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts: words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home -- all the more powerful because forbidden -- terrify them. A little mouse of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.”

    Then I saw it. I saw a mum who would die for her son. A man who would kill for his wife. A boy, angry and alone. Laid out in front of him, the bad path. I saw it. And the path was a circle. Round and round. So I changed it.

    Firefox is the most used browser on my PC's.

    Occasionally use Opera, Vivaldi, Pale Moon and Epic.

    Just a bit of info, Avast One (free) includes a quite useful VPN, this may be useful to some. VPN seems to work fine, limited to 5 GB download per week.

    I've been using Maxthon Cloud for years. I like being able to just click on my favourites bar for each site I want and still leave other page tabs open.

    Got Vivaldi and Pale Moon as back-up browsers. Also have Iron Portable on a USB stick for emergencies.
