Stupid design choices on Windows are always justified by "backwards compatibility". What I don't understand is why an app for DOS doesn't work on Windows 10. Or a lot of Windows XP software that doesn't work anymore. Heck, anyone remember of Windows Vista and all the mess with "Compatibility Mode" that never worked?

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
