Windows 10: Zero Hour To Disaster?

Tick, Tick, Tick...

My Microsoft Xbox isn't playing today. I am a customer of their online music service and they are once again dealing with technical glitches. Meanwhile, the money that I pay into Xbox has been deemed to be useless while I listen to music videos on YouTube, instead.

This Wednesday, July 29, my laptop is slated to undergo a major transformation when it accepts
Microsoft's brand new Windows 10 Operating System.

Or that's what Microsoft is promising to me. Meanwhile, the manufacturer of my machine, Hewlett-Packard, is peaking through its collective technological fingers (as if it is expecting a horror movie
to begin.)

And now I'm staring at my messed-up "music service" and sighing.

I don't know, folks, I just don't know.

Microsoft claims that the massive download will include a "safety partition" that will allow me
to roll back my laptop to the 8.1 system that I am using now. Just in case things don't work out right.

And I wonder how far down I will chew my nails on Wednesday before I will start breathing again.

Microsoft painted it all up real pretty when they offered the free download to me. And every geek
on the Internet has been discussing it ever since.

But if Micronuts can't even properly manage its Xbox...well then...

Don't expect any communication from me via this laptop this Wednesday. I will use the mobile browser on my phone, instead. And I will update everyone as the chicken lays its egg...or a turkey
drops a turd. We shall see.

Oh yes...myself and millions of other people. We will all see.

But will the music that plays be a happy tune or a funeral dirge?
