Yeah, I am not too excited about that on my primary desktop. I might
install the preview on a VM though. Presently, the team continues to
find newly released "features" that break stuff. Hence, my now four
decades (and growing) distrust...

I have them fixing a couple other items too. As far as speedily
resolving something, that all depends on what the Intel group determines
is important. Tea leaf interpretation or flipping a coin 50 times, is
