Calling me slow to catch in is quite funny considering in all of my time here on this forum I do not recall ever having a discussion on the notion that..
"M$ has slowed mankinds progress by an order of magnitude".
I certainly never got a straight answer in this thread, that's for sure.
We get it, Microsoft has made some poor decisions with the way Windows 10 has been pushed out, no one is saying that they haven't. However, there are cases of it just being people blasting Win 10 and MS to absurd levels, especially when I see comments like the above. This is the same with every windows release.
As far as I'm concerned Windows is what made the PC accessible to the average consumer, and made a straightforward OS for people to use on a daily basis. So why, if Windows is so horrible, do they still continue to have the most marketshare, and why is it again that nothing has been able to offer a better solution? If they are a bane to mankind's progression as promoted by some here why do so many of those same people use Windows? Why not go full time linux? Why not OSX? Why not any other of the plethora of OS'es out there?
And while Linux can surely be fine tuned to the end of the world, does that it make a better OS for most people? Absolutely not. The support is not there and even for those who have been using PC's for 20+ years it is still not worth it to move from Windows. The fact that I install linux on one of my builds multiple times a year and then get frustrated with the fact that the most simple of things require an hours research or just flat out need you to jump through twenty hopes to work is mind numbing.
Had a 750ti... oh "well the cards still not supported, you have to do this this this, that, sudo this, this that" ok... fine I'll come back to it. So I install lubuntu on my s939 rig, a setup from 2005 with a gpu from 2010 and holy crap, steam will not launch now. Check online, pretty common on the latest release from 2016... So the platform touted as savior of linux gaming doesn't even launch it. Wait... hold on... researchs more "well the it's a known issue, you have to do this this this, that, sudo this, this that" I can go on and on, with every rig I've tried it on, there is always something that should be simple and yet is a major headache.
25 minutes later (older 7200rpm drive, non ssd) Windows 7 is on it and 10 minutes later I'm playing Counter Strike source.
So how has Microsoft slowed the progression of man down again?Edited by SoloCamo - 7/1/16 at 9:16am
