Every version of Windows is affected by a vulnerability that dates back to 1997: Something to be aware of. Hopefully, Windows 10 will correct the vulnerability.

Microsoft Security Bulletin Summary for April 2015 -
There are four critical and seven important security updates.[/size]

For the moment anyway, this appears to be among the smallest PCs yet to shortly become available (Pocket P2 slightly smaller). Just plug it into a monitor or TV (HDMI), connect your power source (Micro USB port), mouse and keyboard (Bluetooth 4.0) and boot up (don't forget to turn on the monitor/tv).

("Chrome for Windows and all modern versions of Mozilla Firefox are known to be safe. However, even if your browser is safe, certain third-party software, including some anti-virus products and adware programs, can expose you to the attack by intercepting TLS connections from the browser. If you are using a safe browser but our client test says you’re vulnerable, this is a likely cause".)

General Discussion / Windows 10: Will your PC run it?

Here are the basic pc specifications to run a WIN10 computer.


Here is a convenient way of taking a look at all of your installed fonts so a choice can be readily made as to which ones are most suitable for your purposes and which unneeded fonts can be deleted. I printed out 363 fonts on landscape pages at a size 14. The freeware program, PrintMyFonts, does suggest a small donation, but you can download and use first before you might feel compelled to voluntarily donate. File the printouts for future reference when a font change is desired.

One report shows WIN 7, 8, and 8.1, RT, Vista and Servers to be the least vulnerable OS for 2014. Info also on browsers.
