if we moved posts back to the beginning of the forums era, it would be like having Windows 98 books on the shelf.
I strongly disagree! Even old content like that can be useful. Often, Microsoft removes documentation for features that still exist but not used very much. Also, there are a lot of features they don’t document at all. It’s also helpful for the rare times that someone is still using Windows 98 (it does happen! I have an old 98 disc around here somewhere….)
Yeah, those paywalls can be annoying! They need to be upfront about things!
