Windows has been good to me, over the years.
I remember the fun of getting a network (co-ax, in those days, none of yer fancy RJ45 stuff) up and running; keeping it that way before Windows 3.11 for Workgroups. Suddenly, you could just plug it in, install Windows and share files, and printers. And it's got better - with a number of retrograde steps - over the years. Even Win 10 isn't bad - ugly, schizophrenic, greedy as hell, clumsy at times, yes: but not actually bad - it's solid, competent, and has a huge supply of damn good software.

Paying for it used to be the price for that, and it was worth paying (with a few exceptions I managed to avoid). A VM? I'd need another license, and I only have Win7 ones to spare.
