Windows Driver Model was designed to be forward compatible to a large
extent but not backwards compatible. You need to accept joyfully the
latest and greatest that Big Brother has on offer as a complete package,
all shiny and new so Magpie's will look down upon you seething with
envy. Is this truly not what you really want. Give up the fight. Seek
only the promise of happiness and a warm bosom for a pillow.
Of course, and rightfully it has so to do when standards change at
some acceptable discrepancy advanced. SATA drive storage, I saw a
direct Chinese link to 512G models for $34/US this week;- SATA may be
5x slower than SS memory drives in the newer thruput configurations,
though. PCI slots simply now aren't, perhaps one, along with another,
or two, at a reduced factor. Whether more is as much to say the same
-- regardless and in any way possible present MB prices will screw you
true blue and fast. Although decency yet remains, there are decent
MBs priced accordingly. However fewer and however presumably they
remain to last.
My "last generation" (AMD) MB/CPU. The CPU dropped in priced, like a
bomb, when the Ryzen hit. Curiously, though, it hasn't changed since,
but may have even went up. Whereas the MB, forget it: It's now an
"aftermarket" item, at a high premium, outlandishly so with an
exclusive and up to 400% markup. Which would be in effect to say,
value smacks right between the eyes for value, that this new "Internet
of Things" is full of crap. Exceptions being, such as the Ryzen,
which does have a tier of at least some supportive MB manufacturers,
which do stand out for their reasonable prices for faster and improved
Ryzen gear, over what costs were for gear over a year to two ago.
So much for hardware. A long shot, by and far, from software.
I'm not accepting one damn thing joyfully about software that's
depreciated into having effectively to run off a developer's platform,
across virtualized machines to access and organize unsupported
freeware programs. And what their counterpoint purports to offer,
recompiled exclusively for a terminal or cloud subscription, active
monitoring services now renders inasmuch for a full-circle.
You started with a PC Revolution from garages of enthusiasts with
skills for specialty applications not generally appreciable (often
unaffordably so) to the mass. Enough enthusiasts, though, that IBM
got its ass burned royally and Gates ran away with the mint. I
largely don't see a difference between switching to Linux or a
suitable (officially unsupported) variant to access, on an placebo of
Microsoft for a virtual machine supportive of suitable older programs
and freeware. Skillsets and an idea of learning, I can only imagine,
that they'll involve to unnecessarily "kludge" together what is
altogether counterproductive, from greed and monopolistically
motivated present sate, altogether ethically reprehensible when judged
from an outward reception to American business practices in courtrooms
Microsoft is so way down my list of bad suppliers. The quality of their
products is good and the value varies from reasonable to a bit pricey
depending on use and how you perceive value objectively from your place
in the pecking order.
The online world is crazy but fighting it in any more than a cursory
manner is on the route to penury.
What's a cat to do. I was taught from a kitten to duck and dive and keep
my head down. If it tastes sour don't eat it. There's plenty of sweet
tasting fruit. Just be careful what you pick.

It's not Big Brother scratching their asses in a free enterprise
system carrying on planned obsolesce over a tradition from swaths of
utility, not where there's a penny that can be squeezed off to the
ruin of all else. It's what Americans exemplify. We're a class act,
