My understanding is that with the release of Windows 10 there will be no further "versions" in the old sense. Windows is heading towards a rolling upgrade cycle where the OS just receives regular updates via Microsoft's update service.-40hz (November 12, 2015, 12:25 AM)
Keep in mind that there's a free version of XY that gets updated periodically: http://www.xyplorer.com/free.phpThis page has a side by side listing of Pro and Free version features, with links to the online documentation for each so you can determine whether it is something you can't live without. For example, Make Coffee is available only in the Pro edition.
Of course it doesn't have all the features of Pro, but the ones it has are probably enough for many folks.-mwb1100 (November 07, 2015, 12:09 PM)

ok, so 4TB regular hard drives can be had for about $200-300.
1TB SSD is over $400-superboyac (July 21, 2015, 04:26 PM)
The biggest problem is if you have a candelabra fixture where the bulbs are mounted facing upwards. A traditional incandescent candelabra shines a ton of light downward, but this is not the case with ANY LED i have come across, and it's much worse with candelabra LEDs where the base inevitably blocks most of the light.-mouser (October 29, 2015, 03:51 PM)
I have CCleaner from Piriform's CCleaner Professional Plus running, but after half a year I still don't dare to run Defraggler! Piriform is saying that Defraggler Professional also works with SSD, but everyone else say "do not defrag a SSD!". What am I to believe? My laptop's old SSD is depressingly slow, so a defrag MIGHT help - or brake...-Curt (September 25, 2015, 02:06 AM)

Should I still make a recovery image of my own? Is that better to do before or after I install all my stuff?
My current strategy so far is:
- let all the Windows updates download and install over the next couple of days;
- install drivers for my various peripherals first (monitors, printer, scanner, camera, mouse etc.);-dr_andus (September 23, 2015, 06:01 PM)
I didn't want to dilute the discussion of the Pale Moon/Firefox transition with talk of other browsers, but Opera (the original Opera) did not work successfully as a browser. It was based on their proprietary browser engine, Presto, and when users clamored for extensions to functionality, they were shot down. And down also went their popularity and, some would say, their usefulness.This is very confused and mostly wrong.
So, there was much grumbling among the Opera devs regarding their browser was dying. The radical decision was made to move Opera to the WebKit browsing engine. Oh, yay. Another Chrome-like browsing experience...except without the Chrome-like extensions. Let's make a browser like Chrome & take everything that users love about Chrome...and not use those parts.-Innuendo (September 13, 2015, 09:42 AM)
