    Most popular story on the Beeb today.

    You might very well think that; I couldn't possibly comment.

    Pretty much forcing a mass opsys upgrade on the great unwashed. What could possibly go wrong?

    I upgraded several machines without a hitch that I recall but even a simple to fix issue is going to be a show stopper for many who just expect to buy a device, turn it on, and use it.

    I would expect subscribers to Which to have problems. I'm guessing, but, I think that the demographic of subscribers would indicate a higher percentage of difficulties could be encountered than in the mainstream.......

    I'm afraid we had to remove your signature. It was felt that it could be upsetting to other users who had a stroke.
    But removing said signature upsets someone who has had one, ergo yours truly, and has still never received an explanation as to who felt it could be upsetting and why...Let alone the terrible grammar

    A misdiagnosis there methinks, it has a serious virus that requires a lifetime on antivirals to keep it healthy but as for a Trump it is but a passing bout of ill wind.

    And don't call me Shirley.

    Every time I hear mention of Which? I think "God, are they still going?"

    Has anyone born since about 1945 ever bought a copy?
