Not like the old days.

Great other than the Musk Derangement Syndrome. Guys, grow up. We don’t care that you don’t like Twitter or Musk. Like Dan often says for others, your fiduciary responsibility to your shareholders is product. We come here for Windows and tech news. Do that well and you’ll be the most successful.
