yep, 1809 LTSC (cuz they're 2 builds behind everything else) is as smooth as my windows gaming PC has been in ages.

If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

If they want it fixed, you know it's something like this. That gaping hole is hindering them somehow, likely in more ways than one. Someone else, a competitor perhaps, could beat the NSA to the punch and exploit that hole on someone's PC before they did. They don't want that.

Also makes you wonder what the NSA does about linux. Too many distros.

They don't bother with linux cause all the juvenile delinquent offenders use windows (J.D.O. if you're in the know).

If I said to you the police broke into my home when I wasn't home to install hidden microphones to spy on me, and placed GPS sensors on my car so they could track me, and that I was being stalked everywhere I go, you would all think I was nuts and the doctor would prescribe Risperidone for me after I was committed to a psychiatric hospital for delusional disorder.

However if I said the NSA has backdoors on all our PCs and this is some deep state sponsored conspiracy to erode our privacy by monitoring everything we did, I would be considered completely sane and it would be on the front page if Infowars.

The whole damn thing's a backdoor/dataminer.

Prove me wrong!

Microsoft made Windows 10 to compete with the datamining that Apple and Google do on their phones....true story! Hi!

This is how it is, people! That's exactly what happened!
