No Windows Security after upgrading to Windows 11

My laptop desktop under Windows 11

This weekend I upgraded my Acer Nitro 5 laptop from Windows 10 Home to Windows 11 Home.

It mostly went well.

Microsoft Security was missing!

This time last week, I wasn’t expecting a week of food poisoning and international war.

Psion software archive

My old Psion Series 7 and accessories

For years I had on my project backlog an idea to create a website resource for Psion users that collated all the software that I had found and used for a wide range of Psion palmtop computers:

  • WorkAbout (SIBO)
  • Siena (SIBO)
  • Series 3 / 3a / 3mx (SIBO)
  • Series 5 / 5mx (EPOC)
  • Series 7 (EPOC)
  • netBook (EPOC)
  • Quartz
  • netPad

But my life took various unexpected twists and turns and other things took priority. Then in July 2017 I sold my Psion hardware.

While I have not been able to fulfil my original vision, as a minimal viable product, I have uploaded my entire collection of Psion software, images, documentation, code, etc. to Dropbox. If you are interested in Psion computers, have a poke around and help yourself.
