Bad news. Microsoft doesn’t yet have a viable replacement for Windows 7 and they are starting to terminate it. Using Windows 8 is like writing government specs on a cell phone: it might be possible in the same way that technically, I could write all software in machine code only — no compilers — and loaded the code into memory manually using paper tape. No wait: cell phones have that blasted spelling correct/corrupt-er. Make that writing in machine language while a rogue virus randomly changes the codes that I have already written.
