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.
