There's an old adage: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".
So I have "frozen" Thunderbird on all my systems to version 220.127.116.11
because I didn't like "tabbed" email that surfaced in version 3, and
my Firefox browsers are all version 16.0.2 which was the last version
before the backdoor was added in version 17 and, I presume, exists in
every version since then.
And yet as I posted on Usenet earlier today, I do have some modern
software for modern tasks, such as converting MP4s to DVD ISOs which
takes awhile even using my 2nd-fastest system with an Intel Core 2 Duo
CPU E8500 @ 3.16GHz operating 64-bits and with 8GB RAM per:
1:03:29 to convert a 2.64GB MP4 file to a 4.38GB DVD ISO file for
burning on a blank DVD.
