[Forbes]Microsoft Warns Windows 7 Has Serious Problems - Page 33  

post #321 of 376
Jjust because this is a cutting edge hardware community doesn't mean that everyone is a cutting edge power user. If all you do is game, overclock and Facebook, W10 is just dandy.

I can't believe MS still hasn't made an easy to use app that fixes scaling issues with some software. It's been an issue since W8 and two major revisions later, 8.1 and W10, still nothing.

I actually think he was referring how we like to be early adopters to cutting edge technology overall on this forum....HOWEVER in a software sense(in this case the OPERATING SYSTEM) we prefer the tried and true rather then go with what he deems as "cutting edge" software....Which I find totally ironic that for while now all of windows new OS always got a MAJORITY of the bugs out of the new software with its first service pack... It usually takes a year for the SP to come out too...So he basically telling us we are holding back progress cause most of us dont wish to be beta testers for M$, let alone the privacy issues and multiple other warts this OS is presenting to us....

If M$ addresses all these issues without talking down to us, scaring us or putting a gun to our heads cause we will not upgrade to their "service", then I will happy buy a copy of win10 OS(notice I didnt say service) and jump along on the "I love win10" bandwagon....until then M$ can go along and suck on a lemon for all I care

I don't have much issue with being able to disable most of the telemetry. It shouldn't be there, but it is and it's mostly manageable. For me it's the overall bloat and lack of control that Windows Service provides. Overall I do like W10, on it right now, but I'm not upgrading my desktop any time in the foreseeable future.

I'd rather pay for a stripped down version that is more like their product before. W2k and XP were both solid and stable. Every release before and after those are more mixed. Like I said I need to reboot W10 every 3-4 days and that's just stupid.

As for their attitude, yeah, don't care about their desperation or their greed. I'm not looking forward to all their clever tricks to unnecessarily monitize their user base while charging for their product.

There will be no SP1 from all indications. W10 is a service and will constantly be evolving.

From what I can gather... Apparently the initial release version was code named Threshold. The November update was code named Threshold 2 and Redstone is expected to be released sometime this spring or summer.

So the Service Pack naming scheme is likely a thing of the past, as is newer versions of Windows. There will be no separate development teams working on competing products with 3-5 year product cycles, their development and testing groups have been reduced considerably, and changes or modifications are going to be pushed as real-time as possible so they don't have to waste resources supporting legacy products. After support for 7 and 8.1 are officially done, that's it, no more multiple platform support that isn't W10. Windows features will evolve, not be replaced with newer versions, as with traditional new releases or service packs. That business model is gone.
