[WCCF-tech] Microsoft is Back with Sneaky Windows 10 Tricks on Windows 7 and 8.1 - Page 24  

post #231 of 237
For those that missed it yesterday, during the AMD Computex 2016 presentation an engineer from Microsoft went on stage and while talking about Windows 10 (53:17, pre-selected below) he asked the audience how many people were using Windows 10... and then he asked how many people actually liked Windows 10...

Haha, I was just going to come back to this thread to make a comment about that stupid question he asked after asking how many people used Windows 10. Things got pretty hairy there for a minute afterwards.

You'd think they'd just have a few people roaming the internet, looking for things being said about their OS.... I mean, hell, I'll do it if they pay me. But they want to fire all those people, and make the USERS do all of the work. SCREW that.... Who even sends feedback?! Don't they have employees? Don't their employees know the difference between good and bad?

Isn't it something like 500x the size of Windows 98? Yet somehow it's only like 1.2x better.

Lol... Ok I'll stop now.

LOL, same old thing. Don't like it, too bad be our beta tester for free. Apparently M$ feels our time is worthless and can be squandered as they see fit. Nice to see him come right out and say it.

What nonsense. My employer has hundreds of Win 7 machines (ranging from Lenovo's to large touch screen PC's where Windows came preinstalled) and M$py decided they were going to install Win Spy on some of them. Now those large touch screens can't be reverted back to Win 7 because the 30 day grace period expired as they had no idea how to revert back and they're stuck with Win Spy. Those 2.5Ghz i3's were bad enough with Win 7, they're a disaster to work with now there's Win Spy on them. They respond far slower and are just terrible.


I hope M$py get fined their entire years revenue for this nonsense and if they don't comply those fools who made these decisions can enjoy being someone's girlfriend in a Chinese prison together with Jackie Chan's son.

The girlfriend.

And then maybe.. Just maybe.. You realize why we decided on a need for privacy 200 years ago when we wrote the Constitution.

Suspect your Constitution DOESN'T exist anymore.

Being here in Convict Town and watching your disintegrating "Bill of Rights" and seeing no attempt whatsoever to fight for it, in any way is really dismal. You lot in the US actually think you don't need your Constitution anymore.

During these times you may deserve to lose it since you plainly gave up all interest in fighting for it like your ancestors did in the beginning, far better to give up your freedoms then to fight the regime that took it away.

Welcome to our world, where the Government decides what you can think about in the privacy of your own home.
