Yes, but why upgrade if LTO4 does the trick. :)

DOS and XP and LTO4  :yikes: :deadhorse:

As long as you are doing nothing new with your computers then XP would be OK.  The problem with me is that I continuously evolve in what I use on my personal computers at home.  I'm currently on 8.1 (without issues mind you) and look forward to Windows 10.  Newer printers and devices sometimes require more modern drivers and I want to be ready for that.  I know that within this year I'll probably update my router to support AC wireless that has larger bandwidth capabilities as everyone in the household has wireless devices and they know how to use them.  I'm streaming more on TV shows and movies.  And I'm in a continuous update mode.  I work on IBM i mid-range computer systems and have done so since 1988.  The base OS of that system has not changed visually since then but the underlying system (processors, memory, disk, functionality) is light years ahead of what it did originally in 1988 and is still fairly strong in the marketplace (believe it or not) and is running most Fortune 500 company's financial systems on the back end.  Silently humming away without fear of virus' or hacking attempts, unlike Intel based servers that require an army of support and breed servers like rabbits and are rampant with virus', malware, and hacking attempts.

Preach It Brother!

All my PC/Network friends scoff at me when I tell them that my iSeries box would not only run circles around their Windoze machines, it would do it forever (ok, maybe a little hyperbole there)

In over 20 years, I've only seen it down for about 15 days or so cumulative... (other than planned outages for backup, upgrades, maintenance etc.)

Used to do capacity planning for a VAR, but I'm not doing any h/w or architecture work on them anymore, just programming now, but I'm still an iSeries evangelist...

People push shopping carts around the supermarket in much the same way the drive a car. I envision a grocery store in the future set up much like an internet shopping experience where you walk around and click or touch either a handheld screen or a screen with a photo of the item you want and that item is either picked up there or retrieved from the back storage area and taken to the "checkout" area and when you are finished shopping a scanner "reads" your handheld device or store ID and calls up your order already packed and on a conveyor belt to the loading area where it is either picked up by you or loaded into whatever vehicle you are driving.

They do in England for sure...   I would like to see a grocery app that I can use to find things as my grocery store 'Food Lion  :censored: ' moves things around and I can't find them.  This, of course, makes me crazy and annoyed.

I would never shop online, I understand why some do, its not for me, ever. The whole experience of going to the store or market, walking around, shopping, buying the things you need, holding them, comparing them, squeezing them, smelling them, then taking it all home and preparing it with your wife/girlfriend and eating it listening to some good music sipping a good wine is what I love about food and shopping for it. As with all things online, it will never replace that experience, once again, I know why others do it or need to do it, its not for me. Maybe if we run rails down the aisles and attach the carts to them, or, get rid of the carts altogether.....

Hard to do this with caned and dry goods as they all pretty much smell the same. Squeezing them tells one nothing.   ;)

You're right! I see it all the time. Texting while pushing a cart, stopping in the middle of the freakin aisle while they update their facebook crap (or whatever) while holding up 'traffic' behind them.   >:(
