    Did this for many years.

    There's a "government" version of Windows XX.

    *REALLY* easy to hook up a box between the new OS and the internet that monitors everything coming in and going out. (Edit: I'm doing this right now on my home network with PFSense right now.)

    Military asks, "Excuse me Microsoft, but do you want a billion dollar contract from the government to upgrade to this latest version of your OS?"

    "What is THIS coming in?"

    <from IP address> <my IP address> <port #> <string of hex data>
    <from IP address> <my IP address> <port #> <string of hex data>
    <from IP address> <my IP address> <port #> <string of hex data>


    "What is THIS going out?"

    <my IP address> <to IP address> <port #> <string of hex data>
    <my IP address> <to IP address> <port #> <string of hex data>
    <my IP address> <to IP address> <port #> <string of hex data>

    And then Microsoft says, "Oh, sorry, you got the wrong version, here's the one for the government."

    And then the strange unidentifiable incoming and outgoing data no longer appears on the new version for government.

    Hardening of the ******* and the ******* happens at the edge devices. ***** is a physically separate network with some very special, closely monitored devices that have gone through all kinds of testing before connecting to the *******.

    (I may have said too much... but on the other hand, this information is available through open sources.)

    Say any more, and the NSA (perhaps via the CIA?) will have to shoot you.:confused::rolleyes:

    I downgraded all of my computers to MSDOS 3.1 :)

    that's a great, stable OS. Personally, I like DOS 5.0 a little better

    With DOS and QB 7.1 (PDS 7.1) , EDIT and EXE2BIN on a good box, you can build applications that do all sorts of tasks. :D (I love .BAT files ).

    BASIC Rocks!

    Wish I had continued on in my programming classes in college and then actually put that knowledge to use.

    Now, I'm more upset with D*** than ever. I have an i7-7700 that is only 2 !/2 years old, and M$ says it isn't compatible with Win 11. It HAS UEFI, and "firmware TPM" enabled. But the MS/Dell instructions stop at trying to run "tpm.msc," which says no TPM is present. And D*** says they can (try to) fix the problem for a mere $100. for their "one time" on-line Tech Service.

    Not even my new stuff is compatible. Oh well. We all knew 10 would be the new XP one day.

    Had a WIN10 update the other day and was notified that my Optiplex 3010 is not compatible with WIN11.

    I know most programmers write for windows as it is the largest target (for virus' as well). I agree with you that the ham radio software under linux is pathetic, especially logging programs. If I could get Logger32, and N1MM+ to run under Linux, poof windows gone. Eventually, I am going to have to give up on those 2 programs and use the more rudimentary software available on Linux, because windows 11 is a no-go for me.

    ...but does it have TPM 2.0?

    My recently-retired laptop had TPM1.something, and therefore wouldn't get the auto-upgrade.

    You can get Win11 by installing from a CD, if you really, really wanted it.
