Re: The Terrible...
The irony of the whole situation is that overall, Windows 10 isn't a bad OS. Maybe not quite as good as Windows 7, but not too bad overall. However, I absolutely 100% will not be installing it onto any of my machines because MS have done everything in their power over the last 6 months to destroy every last morsel of trust they might have had.
MS are going on about "making the process easier", but I'm sorry, that's absolute BS. Instead, they've done the following
Hiding nagware behind cryptic update names.
Not making it possible conventionally to turn off installed nagware.
Re-enabling updates that users have intentionally uninstalled and blocked.
Re-publishing nagware against new KB names to also try to get around blocks.
Hide malware inside security updates and deploying it to corporate customers.
Download gigabytes of data onto users PCs over potentially metered connections without their approval.
This is before we get onto the murky mess that is Windows 10's data slurping and the fact that even when you turn the telemetry supposedly off it still phones home like ET on steroids.
Sorry MS, your actions here aren't "helping the user", and you bloody well know it. Face it, you stopped giving two craps about the customer a long time ago, and your behaviour blatantly shows this. With this kind of shocking attitude towards your customers, no way am I ever touching Windows 10.
