    Like it or not, soon I will be needing a computer that runs Windows 10, (ugh). My problem is that I have written several support applications that run under Konfabulator (aka Yahoo Widgets). Since the engine for these apps won't work on 10, I need to know which programming suite will support my algorithms.

    My most pressing need is to write an app that can do this, (parens show current Widget syntax):
    1) Access an URL. (url.fetch)
    2) Execute regex.. (replace)
    3) Write a local file. (writeFile)
    4) Pass that file to a Perl program. (runCommand)

    So, which programming suite should I be learning next?

    Is there any particular reason why you need to migrate to Windows 10 specifically? Most programs written for XP will also work with Windows 7, and Win7 not only has much better compatibility with XP-era software than Win10 but is still getting MS updates. If you move to Win7 then you should still be able to use Konfabulator.
