    Default Which version of Windows?

    My laptop (which is getting on a bit) is running Windows 10 version 1607
    Another computer in the office is running macOS 10.12.6

    When I interrogate iCloud, the Mac is reporting that the laptop is running Windows 6.2 (0,0)

    Googling Windows 6.2 tells me that NT6.2 is Windows 8, then they jumped to NT10 for Windows 10

    If Microsoft don't know what number version of Windows is what number, how is anyone else supposed to know?

    I feel your pain. Being grade 1 listed, we can't have double glazed ones installed.

    Double glazing (and no doubt plastic) windows. You sir are an imposter!

    There's just no good reason to be on XP anymore... All but the very eldest of legacy apps have pretty much been proven on Windows 7 32 bit... Still could be worse, could be Vista!

    Was talking with a client colleague whose methadone prescribing software only runs on XP.

    So your clients are all on methadone...makes sense to drug them first I guess...
    His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...

    That's a great bullet point to have in one's CV.
