5) President Trump's nominee to lead the Department of Justice's antitrust division, Makan Delrahim, will appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday.

6) Windows XP: Why it won't die for years to come | ZDNet.com"Spiceworks calculates that Windows XP is running on 14 percent of all PCs in businesses worldwide, while Windows Vista is only running on one percent. In contrast, Windows 7 has the highest share, running on 69 percent of business PCs. Windows 10 currently has nine percent of the overall share, followed by Windows 8 at five percent, according to the research."--Editor's note: Windows 7 was the best OS Microsoft has ever made. Windows 8 was a disaster, and Windows 10 carries many of the same flaws. For most PC users, a good Chromebook is a much better choice going forward.
