Win10 Anniversary Update bricked my computer and LM 18.1 Serena was the answer
After Win10 Anniverary update my slightly older HP Compaq Elite 8200 CMT with ATI Radeon HD 5450 video card, 16 GB of RAM, and a fairly new WD Black 1 TB HD started acting up, first my Logitech webcam malfunctioned with Zoom teleconferencing. When nothing worked they recommended the uninstall/reinstall route, which would not work. My video card was acting up, and the newest drivers would not even install, then my printer (HP OfficeJet Pro 8630) began acting up, uninstall reinstall... never worked again. In the end it was on the AMD forum where I found someone who knew that their Win10 drivers for their legacy cards (Radeon HD 5000/8000, and RX5) were not working for many people under the Win10 Anniversary Update. That's when I gave up for the highest video card this system would support was 6570, and I would likely have had the same problem.
All of last year I had been upgrading family computers to LM 18.0, and found it working fine. My business desktop was the last holdout. So, after 25 years of steadily upgrading older hardware do Linux when MS dropped the ball, I am finally where I don't have MS to kick around anymore. Are there some challenges? Oh yes, a few, but this environment is much more manageable compared to Win, which is design to ensure you never understand what is going on.
