I use PaintShop Pro 8.1 all the time. Bought it in 2003. It's 32 bit. And runs flawlessly on Windows 10. Why upgrade the program if it works great, and does what I need? Just because the OS supports 64 bit doesn't mean it cannot support 32 bit as well. Thankfully Microsoft understands the power of backwards compatibility...

Gotta love getting modded down "troll" for posting an actual, hard, fact that simply cannot be disputed! But with the modern SJW-mindset, anything that offends anyone is automatically wrong, regardless of the factual nature of the statement. I assume we'll soon have issues about claiming 1+1 = 2 or 3 x 3 = 9...

I dunno, arming specific sides, giving money (billions - illegally, mind you) to the guys causing instability, coordinating attacks on foreign leaders, drawing lines in the sand - all those seem to fan the flames of war and aggression. Don't do that kind of thing and I bet the middle east would be a lot less volatile.

The difference is, Google actually turns a net profit on big revenues. Uber's losses are larger than it's revenues (meaning they are burning 100% of revenue - AND still consuming additional investment funds). Google's value is inflated IMHO, but there is real value there. Uber's value is 100% speculative.

The middle east issues go back to Carter and beyond. Iraq was boosted to counter Iran. Iraq got a bit too big for their britches under HW Bush and our involvement shifted. Those policies continued under Bill Clinton with no fly zones. G Bush then shifted towards regime change, further escalating us against Iraq.

Just a quick clarification: The Iraq Liberation Act was signed by President Clinton, in 1998. The official US policy of deposing Saddam Hussein started then.
