    I just dance around naked in front of mine. That way anyone watching will go blind and kill themselves.

    By the way, I use a wooden clothespin, just to be different.

    Mossy's done that with her Windows 7 laptop webcam for years. With my Windows 8 laptop webcam, I just disable it in the Device Manager.

    Apparently, starting in 2023, new Windows 11 laptops must include a front-facing camera of HD quality. (But only laptops, not desktops.)

    This disturbs me, and greatly reeks of privacy invasion.

    Sad day today. My old HP laptop that I have had since 2012 (my late mother gave it to me for Christmas) just bit the dust. I had it all upgraded to SSD, extra memory, etc. I couldn't get windows 11 to work on it though. I am gonna miss it since it was something my mom gave me just before she died.

    Been running it a while now and I find it pretty much like Windows 10 in operation. Just looks a bit fancier. I am using Start11 to make my windows button look more like windows 10. It basically lets you customize your start menu to look how you want, moving the icons to the left of the taskbar, etc.

    While Buckwheat was here early last week, I had a brief chance to look at Windows 11 in action on her laptop (by way of updating The Traveller's Guide for her)! Aside from the pinned icons on the taskbar being centered instead of left-justified, it didn't look to me like it was a whole lot different than 10. But -- I was pleased to see that both ports (DirectDraw and Direct3D) of The Traveller's Guide do work, even though the DirectDraw port was slow (but that's been true since Windows 8).

    So now I can say I've seen Windows 11 in action, if only briefly.

    Why would you want to do that?????

    No. It has Windows 7, 10 and 11. and something called "modern style"

    It also allows you to customize each one, like putting the menu at the top of the screen, etc.

    Yup - tight code, tiny executables.
