[WCCF] New Low for Microsoft: Removes the ‘X’ Button from Windows 10 Upgrade Dialog - Page 20

post #191 of 204


I gave win10 a chance, used it for a good 4 months or so, but it didn't feel as good as windows 7, lots of rough patches.

For instance, my steel series raw keyboard app wouldn't autolaunch at system startup (neighter registry, startup folder, or task scheduler helped), in the end I had to hack a .bat script, and had to call it with a 3'rd party app launched with admin privileges, to trick it to launch during system startup.

Same with SpeedFan app, but this one only needed to use the 3'rd party program to launch it delayed, otherwise it would (oh meh gosh) apparently violate some deeply ingrained security policy (yes, I checked the group policy editor, no dice).

I'm on Ubuntu 16.04 since April, what actually pushed was spotty windows 10 suspend/sleep. Trawled the web for 2 days trying various things, no luck. Most of the times it would refuse to suspend for no obvious reason, but rarely it would work.

I said f...it, enough is enough. If I cannot control my system as I see fit, then good riddance...


Meanwhile in the Linux side of things, I tried a few distros, but the best one was Ubuntu, with specifically unity (very well polished).
Part of the reason I settled on Ubuntu was because of my sound setup, I have my headphones in the normal sound card, and I also have sound going via the nvidia-HDMI to the TV, and from the TV through it's headphones exit to a 2.0 sound system.
Ubuntu & unity was the only one that allowed me to easily swap between the sound output sources.

Game's side, Steam is on Linux, and most of my library works natively. Also have a few running through wine-staging. Overall I can say I'm ok with the gaming side on Linux.

I can now stay on the side lines and feel amused by Microsoft's efforts with win10 rolleyes.gif

For me personally, that's literally the LEAST important aspect of an OS for my home PC. I don't care what they collect and i keep updates on auto because i don't care what the OS is doing as long as my computer works (and it rarely ever doesn't). What's important to me about an OS is speed, functionality/features, compatibility, UI, and stability, all of which Windows 10 does better than Windows 7 ever dreamed of (well I do miss aero). The telemetry red herring that people keep using to hate on the OS is not something that 99% of Windows users have ANYTHING to ever worry about but somehow that is the only thing they can ever talk about with Windows 10...

Well I'm glad you don't have a daily 200MB data cap.

Judicial System needs to begin implementing standards and fines for Microsoft.
post #194 of 204
The problem isn't Windows 10, it's Microsoft itself. If they're treating people poorly now, how are they going to treat people in the future?

Given that they've demonstrated the willingness to change things against your will and without warning, we have to assume that they're going to repeat this behavior, unless they get punished, which means people have to reject whatever product is connected to the undesired behavior.
If you don't like the way Microsoft is behaving then rejecting Windows 10 is the only correct thing to do until Microsoft has demonstrated that they're going to let users have control over their computers again.

This is a little funny, they probably think they have gotten most people, and the ones left are the "difficult" people, so they are making it more annoying.
Only a few days left till it's no longer a free upgrade, right? They probably figure a few more weeks of annoyance wont matter.

They will continue with the rest of their software, for instance the fiasco with visual studio:

It's like someone who keeps trying the door handle over and over while you're trying to unlock the car. So annoying.

I have a SP 3 and it was updated to 10 without a clean install. I would have multiple instances of my computer hanging, blank screens from waking up from sleep, and numerous issues with my CPU usage being high while idling. I downgraded to 8.1 and that was just way more problematic. No icons on desktop, control panel wouldn't open, start menu tiles were non existent (had to use an external monitor and click the desktop on the specified monitor to even get to the desktop). I wiped the drive and did a clean install and it has been OK. Performance seems about on par with 8.1 but I had to disable way too many options to keep my data from being collected.

That said, I will retain windows 8, not 8.1, enterprise on my desktop since it cannot be updated to 8.1 or 10 without a clean install. Haven't done a windows update since 2013 and have never had any issues with my system so far.
