This morning, I tried twice to install Thunderbird 60.0.  Both
times, I got an error popup that indicated I do not have Windows
7 or later.

See bug #1481880 at <https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1481880>.  I
attached an image of the error popup to that bug report.

NOTE: This message was originally cross-posted to: mozilla.dev.apps.thunderbird mozilla.support.thunderbird with
Followup-to: mozilla.dev.apps.thunderbird I thought that was
reasonable since both newsgroups would be concerned. However, it
did not appear in either newsgroup after more than four hours.

Wow... you even reported the problem as a bug. Impressive. Are you
able to install other versions of TB normally?

Yes, I have successfully installed prior Thunderbird versions using
the same procedure that failed this time.

Just an offtopic question, you may even not answer it, if you
prefer: why not using linux? There are so many different
distributions, for different kinds of public and activities!

I would use Linux except that I have accumulated a number of applications that I like but that exist only for Windows.

Actually, I was a UNIX user before I ever saw a PC running Windows.
As a software tester for a large client-server system, I wrote a
number of test tools in UNIX Korn.  Thus, I think I could adapt to
Linux quite easily.  However, I do not want to give up using the
Windows-only applications I have accumulated.

So why not Dual-Boot Win7 and Linux .... like I do??

I bought a Dell Win10 laptop almost 2 years ago because I was curious and wanted to provide support for Windows users. My Linux desktop is my main computer.

The apps look so much better when I test Linux LiveCD's on the laptop though. Must be the AMD R5 graphics and monitor combination.
