In the ER, they handed me a tiny tablet (2" x 6"?) and asked me to sign my 
"So that we can paste your signature into all of the documents.  Would you 
like a copy of the papers that we sign your name to?"

After that, Windows seems perfectly suited.

Until it does an unauthorized "upgrade" to Windoze10.

Turned on the machine one morning, and it told me to wait for updates to
