I remember well using early PCs in the mid to late eighties. In those days, armed with DOS commands we were perhaps more in control? Now programs are updated automatically in the background and everything runs smoothly until the next release of Windows.

Some of the functionality on my ultrabook still does not work on Windows 10.

Although I’ll probably be long since departed, I wonder what the next thirty years will bring in terms of personal technology?

Personally, I think that Google is to be admired. This is different to Microsoft that still tries to leverage its size to its own advantage. See my views on Windows 10.
