I made a strange and (for me) unexplainable experience I want to share with the community.
It is due to my Ice-Aged standard OS XP, which is still running, and the host for all my development including WinBuilder 2013 / 2014
As known, M$ stopped XP support anywhen in April 2014.
But today I got a new UPDATE, which told me that it will be installed on shutdown.
I clicked restart.
Something happened, some log messages were shown, but no shutdown / reboot after all.
After about one hour I hard rebooted.
Now the surprises in the coming up XP:
Previously TaskManager showed me a list of processes, which did not fit onto one screen height. So the scroll bar was visible.
Now TaskManager has a list which fits into one screen height, and has about 5 lines free.
Previously right clicking on an item in Explorer (to get context menu) needed sometimes several seconds until result.
Now: Right-click and see the context menu
Does somebody have similar experience?
IMHO: As long as M$ supported XP, there have been several spies in the system, which reported WHAT? to Billy the Door.
BTW: Until now I have no troubles with the changed OS.
