To me a P2V is an aircraft. A "Neptune" capable of flying low; and used for Anti-Submarine Warfare. Several were outfitted by Lockheed for TRIM (Trails, Roads Interdiction Mission) in Vietnam. Trials were at PAX River. The Navy lost one. Never found the crew.

You just need to apply this patch and then it stops doing things you don't want. Cool

Plus, I just don't want to spend the money on win 7 when there will come a time that it won't be supported anymore. I just have to tuf it out. I can wish though. I really liked win 7 and will always dislike win 8. i don't like having to pay for office either that I didn't have to pay for with win 7 (could have been a bundled deal that I was not aware of)

That's why I stick with this machine. I have software that I'd have to pay for again -- and I am in the middle of many things. I have a superior machine that I built that has two 1TB SSDs that boots so fast the windows flag does not form.

MS and Adobe are all trying to get to a cloud based model where the user pays monthly. They want a continuous revenue stream. If they push hard, they'll lost to the Open OS's and Office versions.

well, I would still have win 7 if the old laptop that we got as a gift didn't crap out. had to replace it and win 8 was on the laptop.

just curious why you would want to get rid of or replace win 7

I don't necessarily want to get rid of 7 but because of my work I need to be stay up to date on the latest OS. Although we won't upgrade until 7 EOLs and y'all will be cussing Windows 14. Smile

I wanted to learn Binary so I enrolled in Binary 101. I seemed to have missed the first four courses. Big Grinnie

Sorry Alan, with 10, 7 will be a goner for sure. That's why I'm waiting for W9.

I share a dislike for windows 8 and windows 8.1. Truly an embarrassment to Microsoft. I have gone to Mac OSX with both Windows and Linux in VMs. I also have dedicated Linux laptops. Have to use Win2kR2 server at work - feels like the stupid thing was designed for a touch screen!!
