Me? Couldn't give a crap about model trains... But people who are full time into it don't understand how I could not be interested or give a crap. It's their life, so they know a lot... Us, computers area big interest, so we know... This lady runs a business where a PC is a tool. She probably couldn't give a crap about it other than it does what it needs to. So its very possible shes never heard of win10 because she could care less...
I have two major interests, the automotive world and the technological world. Both of them I rely on heavily in daily life for both work and play. You don't run your business off of a model train. No different than people who don't know how to change their own tire IMO. If a tool was a major part of my way of life, aka cash flow, I'd certainly take strides to understand it a bit better. But hey, lot's of ignorance out there and as each day goes by it seems to get more of a pass by joe public and the "I need everything handed to me, how dare you expect me to learn or use common sense" crowd. I mean seriously, there are cars that tell you to check your back seat for your own kids. Let alone the plethora of cars that now brake for you whether you wanted to or not...
I guess I just have a hard time seeing someone get paid for their own ignorance and 'caring less'. Just like the many people who don't inflate their tires or change their oil, they could care less too.. until their tire pops or their engine blows. I think we all know those people don't dare actually take some responsibility and only point their finger.

Yes, my corporate overlord.
If her power supply failed and took the system out, would she have been awarded 10k and a free computer too?
Again, when you can sue for hot coffee and you live in the US and see all the ridiculously frivolous law suits you really start to question everything.

Yes sir, agenda. Having Bill Gates and ol' Stevie Boy Balmer coming over for dinner tonight to shake hands on our success.
Get off your high horse.
Edit: That said, I think it's pretty clear when I said MS was not wasting their time either way on this hence the payout. My points are directed towards the point of the lawsuit itself.Edited by SoloCamo - 6/28/16 at 10:52am
