Leading IT expert Prof Candid has warned that rushing into an upgrade could cause the NHS to implode.

‘The threat from Ransomware is very real,’ explains Prof Candid, ‘as recent experience has shown.

‘But upgrading from Windows 95 to Windows 98 is a step too far for the NHS. Sure it’ll drag our IT systems into the future, and by into the future I of course mean 19 years into the past, but it will also cause the whole clunky system to implode.’

If your computer does go down after the upgrade, then Prof recommends you buy a computer with a terrifyingly large monitor and a printer that can wake the dead, and spend half your life typing in things like C:>Run.Patientfiles_1988

  • I have no intention of upgrading my answerphone from Windows95. the '98 version was no real improvement. and besides, the Wordperfect on the original platform is still way ahead of many more current word processors.
    Ok, I can't find antivirus software to fit within the 1 GB available hard drive, so I don't connect it to the interweb thingy, but consequently it has not caught anything treatable with antibiotics since, oh, about 1995!
