Delivered some catered foods to family members post-thanksgiving dinner.
Rewarded with the good I tried to do, with preparing a dated laptop for donation.
Going to MS Windows.
MS Windows – 10
Tried MS Windows 10, but it crashed a couple of times upon a normal reboot in the middle of the installation.
Raised my hands up and walked away with a loss.
MS Windows – 8
I thought of MS Windows 8, but never actually the OS.
MS Windows – 7
I kicked back to MS Windows 7.
