FWIW I'm 64. I migrated from W98SE to Mdk 8.2 in May last year. Went from
there to Woody last July. (Via a brief interlude with Potato after a corrupt
Woddy install disc plus my mistake trashed my setup.)
We seniors are often resistant to change. As far as I am concerned that fear
of change is nothing more than fear of death in disguise. Once we wake up to
that we can embrace change just as we did when younger.
And then finally embrace the big change. But that's there for us all.
