Yes Eberhard avery useful.  Many of my colleagues have suggested it. I should have done it years ago. I’m 75 now and am weary of learning new  operating systems. Ive used windows from the beginning. Something I’m familiar with and works for me. So forgive me, my life left is too short for such considerations. Many thanksMike
