Re: You listening Microsoft? @Red Bren
Another big reason for sticking with older OS is hardware makers understandably won't write fresh drivers for old kit.
Had enough trouble searching Epson sites worldwide for XP drivers for scanners that came out in the days of XP. Let alone, hoping for drivers for 7 or 8/10.
Irony is, the likely reason I have these Epson models is that they were originally dumped in the street by Mac owners when Apple deserted SCSI.
