Author Biography

After writing about technology for 35 years, Katherine Murray is still a computer geek. This is a fascinating time to be writing about technology. She has seen personal computing change from big, slow, cryptic desktop-hogging machines to small, sleek smart devices we easily can tap our way through. She has worked with every version of Microsoft Windows there’s been, loving some versions (such as Windows 7) and loathing others. (Remember Windows Vista or, worse, Windows ME?) Katherine was part of the thumbs-up crowd when it came to Windows 8.1 but watched as Microsoft’s vision tanked because users weren’t quite ready for such a huge change in the way we work with our computers. Windows 10 Fall Creators Update represents the best of what Microsoft has learned about the balance of features, flashiness, and functionality, with even a little fun thrown in.


In addition to writing about technology, Katherine works as a hospice chaplain and pastors a Quaker church in Noblesville, Indiana.
