I'll be watching you. And I'm going to laugh if, in five years when/if the next Windows come out (IIRC they planned on making Windows 11 just "Windows" and have rolling updates maybe?), you go and say "Win 10 will be the last windoze I use".

I've seen it happen for every single OS since Windows 98. "Oh, Win2000 sucks, Windoze 98 will be the last windows I use". "Oh, Vista sucks, WinXP will be the last Windows I use." "Oh, I don't like 8.1, Win7 will be the last Windows I use."

To be fair, I said "Windows XP will be the last Windows I use" and I stuck with that. I may be a toddler wearing floaties in the pool that is Linux, but I haven't gotten back out.

That IS entirely fair. But I'd dare to say that you're a minority of people who legitimately stuck to their words. It sounds like "I'm not using this ever again" is more of a complaint than a statement nowadays.

Kind of like saying "If so and so becomes president, I'm leaving the country!"

Exactly.
