Yeah, sometimes constraints at work require that we use stuff we wouldn't use ourselves. The company I work for provided laptops for the developers and gave us the choice of Windows 7 or 10 and I went with 7, of course. If they, at any point, require upgrading to 10 then it will be on their machine, not my equipment. As I said earlier, it's a matter of constantly wasting time and money replacing technology that does the job. I'm in the same mode with my development tools. I still use VS2008/SQL Server/Active Reports 6 to produce my product. I spent about $1000 on those things and nothing about the new Visual Studio (or the other products) enhances what I can produce. I'm very much in a "if it ain't broke, why fix it?" mode with all this stuff.

I have a 20-year-old table saw out in the wood shop that still cuts wood as well as it did when it was new. Until it physically wears out or they upgrade wood to a new material that it can't cut I reckon I'll stick with it, too! Wink | ;-)
