I prefer 64bit as it's much faster when compiling but I must admit I'm not keen on UEFI, at the moment anyway. Maybe it will improve down the track.

What we need is a browser that can take the place of google-chrome so we can watch Netfix etc.

Code:
Users affected will still be able to use Chrome after the axe has fallen, but they will no longer receive any updates.

What updates? The problem with Google is that it lacks a visionary leader with perspective, someone like Steve Jobs. Google is just as imperious as Microsoft when it comes to pushing state-of-the-art hardware and equipment.

I sort of wonder if they get some deals from hardware vendors by pushing state of the art hardware.

Of course they do!
They (and all others) push people to buy new hardware of any/all sorts.
Then the new hardware requires new software.

And round and round we go on the marketing carousel.

Yep. To them we're just gerbils -- or lab rats.

Darry gets a +1

Absolutely no need to toss a perfectly good computer in the landfill. Thus slacko5.7-2016eee.

This just in... Google, Apple and Microsoft ARE the industry. Smells like collusion against the end-user as sheeple.
