Default SeeYou and Windows 10

If I had a laptop with Vista or 8 on it, and wanted to run soaring
software, I would immediately wipe it and install Win7. Is there any
Windoze software out there that doesn't run on 7? Don't understand all
this excessive salivation over an unknown like 10.

To get real work done, install a good Linux in a dual boot
configuration. There's other options, but tend to not be as stable as
dual-boot.

slow boot up protocol. For that reason I installed Win 8.1 and now it's
unbelievably fast (to me). Maybe a solid state disk

Win 10 before troubleshooting the application glitches that came with
switching to Win 8.1.

Maybe if SeeYou and Oudie Updater and IGC would only run on Linux. I've
got an old netbook running Linux Mint. It's a small screen for planning
tasks, but it would be easier to take on trips.
