Sickening - what about folks who can’t afford the shite of MS? What about people using open source systems? Even those have to provide options for versions in order to interface with the system. Unbelievable to think of how “marketing” forces its way into places it should never even dare to assert.
Damn the system - forget that - its already damned itself.
