I'd second this. I've got an ancient Core 1 duo laptop (originally Vista) upgraded all the way to W10. Vista-7 was a painful driver hunt; and I never did get the SD card slot working. W7-W10 just worked (tm). The laptop itself is available as an emergency loaner for close friends/family. Too old/slow to be a daily driver IMO; even ignoring the completely dead battery and loose charging port (which would probably kill it in short order due to lack of care by end users).
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?

Do you feel you fully understand the vision and purpose of the software project you're working on?
Sure you can be told the "what", but do you have the "why"?
