[Winaero] Microsoft locks some Group Policy options to Enterprise editions in Windows 10 Anniversary Update - Page 15

post #141 of 237

Another very underhand move by Microsoft. Just leave it alone, when a consumer buys a product it should stay the way it was when initially released. The only changes to it should be performance updates,security updates etc. Not removing features and control of the user.

 

Bloody mad. Looks like I will just have to have some more of those little apps to block and prevent MS from ruining my WIN10 experience lol.

Some people don't mind their OS having ads and getting "bundled software" with it. I'd wager that most power users want nothing to do with any of that.

To boot up a fresh install of 10 and see adverts for microtransaction games like Candy Crush just bothers me on so many levels.

I have a dozen Windows 7 licences. I was planning on upgrading eight of them to Windows 10.

I ended up upgrading one of them.

Until there is a DX12 killer app, the choice is easy.

Even after a DX12 killer app shows up, I'll probably still be inclined to avoid putting Windows 10 on any more of my systems (I run W10 Pro on my tablet, and I am amazed I haven't put the thing through a wall yet).

Maybe if I can get some cheap Server 2016 licences via my wife's work I'll find an OS that supports DX12 to be tolerable...until then I have a 30 year backlog of games I've been meaning to get through.

Probably a reference to DX12.

In reality, there will almost certainly be Windows 7 drivers for many more generations of GPUs. NVIDIA, for example, supported XP/2003 and their 64-bit variants up to at least Maxwell (GTX 900 series).

I would expect AMD and NVIDIA to push out Windows 7 drivers until at least the end of Windows 7 extended support in 2020.

DX12 performance will always be moot to me until I can run DX12 without dealing with an OS as obnoxious as Windows 10.

If AMD is deliberately focusing on DX12 performance, and it's not just an architectural path of least resistance, that's their misfortune.

I disagree with almost every conclusion Barry Schwartz comes to.

Choices are easy and freedom of choice is always good. It's separating the illusion of choice from actual choices that's the hard part.

With windows 8 i kinda learned to use the search and it ways faster with an ssd anyways.

I generally find the start menu at least as fast as search for any of my more frequently used apps.

I don't even like the fact that Windows assumes a multi-user environment or comes bundled with a web browser.

I've been on 10 for a month now I think, and looks like I should have stayed on 7. This is what I get for being bored a few weeks ago, damn.

Been there done that. I eventually did go back to 7 and don't plan on leaving it again!

Win7 Ult = Win7 Enterprise 100% exactly the same

Win7 Pro or Ult only upgrades to Win10 Pro ( why isn't it possible to upgrade to Win10 Enterprise via Ult? )

Yes, they can. A new update can bring new hardware requirements, like 8.1 64-bit did to 8 64-bit with new CPU instructions requirement; they can say that your latest drivers for some component / peripheral are now too old for some reason that they decide on or simply that your computer is outside the OEM support period.

i can understand if they just dont want to add the new features from the new hardware, as that would simply not use said new features.
with many branches of products, e.g. OS WinXP/Vista/7/8/8.1/10, just getting rid of one would allow their devs to concentrate on the remaining products.
though as a consequence new updates won't be available for old OSes, this can lead to security issues, the easy solution is to switch to a more modern OS.


what we can do however, is file a class action lawsuit to force microsoft on either continuing full support for old OSes, or to re-license them under freeware, MIT or something similar.
