    5+ So good! Thank you!

    A lot of things I never thought about. Thanks.

    A lot of things were covered and the upgrading to Windows 10 was something I have to do much sooner then I expected. It was great to hear from so many people in the same situation and ways to still get windows 10 from windows 7.

    a lot to unpack but lots to filter through.

    A+++ Thomas is Fabulous!!!

    a bit over my head

    About a Tech session with more about Apple software and hardware, e.g., Reunion, AppleNotes
