I am still furious that I have to know how to use the group policy editor and power shell to disable/remove features that should be easily accessible.

Just because I know how to do something the hard way does not excuse the lack of an easy way.
Why would you assume they'd like Mac OS more?

Overall, I hate Windows. That doesn't mean it's not my favorite OS. It just means that OSes are terrible disgusting, unfortunate, necessities to the point where even the best ones are still obnoxious to use.

My first computer was an abacus lol.

You don't understand. I shouldn't have to change my oil in my car or try to replace a starter. It should just WORK the way I want it to work inside my head. Anything else is not acceptable.

Ehh, I don't know what side of the globe you live in, but everyone around here is expected to do it themselves or shell out money for an expert. Besides, comparing an OS to a car is useless .

It's not comparing a car to an OS, it's comparing having knowledge about the workings of a car to an OS because simply saying everything won't be spoon fed to you isn't enough on these forums.

And it shouldn't be. If you only use you car to go from home to work and back, knowing just the basics may be good. Rest you can pay $$ to get sorted from professional. But if you're in competitive car sports, well you definitely like to know all about the inner workings of the car either due to profession or interest. Something similar can be said about the OS. If you use for light work, you may or may not know everything about it and wouldn't even care. But if you are affected by how MS collects data, then you should learn how to safeguard your data.

I'm not sure what their data collection has to do with the auto updates that I've been talking about in this thread. You can also do some light reading and not jump on the M$ IS STEALING MY DATA bandwagon.

Well, then replace the data collection with whatever MS has been doing. The point still stands. They haven't blocked the users from disabling whatever their software has been doing. Just takes time to learn how to do it.

Do you not see the irony of how easy it is to accomplish such feats in Windows 8, 7, Vista, and XP versus 10?

You're way off base.


People, please stop defending the indefensible.

So that's your problem with Windows? Following a picture guide that takes three minutes to complete is way too much? Windows, expecially W10 is geared for the non-tech savvy. For the 99.9% of users that have no problem with Microsoft getting crash reports as they happen or receiving free vulnerability updates that are automatically installed while they are sleeping. If you don't fall into that 99.9% and using picture guides on a forum is too much work, then maybe Windows isn't made for you?

You must burn though a lot of engines not changing oil. That's probably why you are having starter problems as well, trying to start seized engines....

You laugh but that's the problem the internet and trying to explain things in a different way. Oh someone made a car analogy while talking about computers? Better focus on engines now to disprove the other person!
