Great article, especially from my point of view of being a Surface Pro 4 user since 2014, I can relate as well.
But I'm not like you. For my day job we got issued powerful Macbooks with i9 CPUs and 32GB or RAM and there are no complaints there, perhaps except for that these machines are almost completely locked down and I don't dare doing anything personal on it.
So I only use the Surface for my light-weight after-hours dabbling and messing around with shell scripts and JavaScript code. The only times I really see it struggle is when I'm running Beaker Browser and Patchwork and Syncthing at the same time. But I learned to be patient and just keep one thing open at a time. And I don't do Desktop Apps. I wished I could learn how to program that. Getting some inspiration from the people over dabbling with Gemini and Go and Rust, there's even a really cool client programmed in C.

My question though: would Microsoft allow you to build Windows 10 for x86–64 in their fancy Azure Cloud? Perhaps that's what they are aiming for? Would that be an option?

@DuckDuckGo @jmorse_ Germany is leading the "blurring my house from Google streetview" so much some people are nicknaming the country .

@ChrisAldrich Hoping for the best! Stay safe.

@guyvansanden Those are exactly the features that were solved by using @IRCCloud for me. ( https://www.irccloud.com ) Obviously, gamers are powerful online communicators and can en-masse make a platform win or lose. Perhaps I'm just old-school :-D

@hedders4 The new camera and selfie-camera modules can be pre-ordered now on the site with a nice discount of €25 if you buy the combo. I ordered ours just now. Going to send back the old ones for recycling / re-usage.

@BuinusBest The new modules are up for pre-order now and will start shipping September 14th. So I believe the upgrade to Android 10 will arrive somewhen around then.

Thank you Desmond for the support and the link to your photo organizing process. There are definitely some actions I can try myself.
