IMHO, a good choice.  7.7 is much more important, IMO, and when 
resources are scarce you much prioritize them.

So far, the CR updates are working out for me, although I've noticed 
heavy I/O causing more of a slowdown than with 7.6, both on the internal 
SATA/mSATA drives and external USB2/USB3 drives.  But I haven't had time 
to dig deeply enough to triage what might be causing it.  Copied some 
EME signal captures today (6GB or so) and the GUI became totally 
nonresponsive (mouse cursor moved fine, just nothing responded to any 
mouse events) while the copy was underway, on one of the internal 
drives. If anything, this CR update has been the smoothest so far for 7.x.

Thanks much for your hard work.
