Mud sticks: Microsoft, Windows 10 and reputational damage


Re: It's the data harvesting

Yep. When my son's Windows 8 machine just couldn't wheeze its way through all the crapware that had accumulated, my son didn't even consider Windows 10; he had me give him a clean Linux install. And he's all of 11 years old.

"I don't want Windows 10. It spies on you!" was his reasoning.

He can only run around 70% of his games, but I've paid him back for the ones he lost, and he says it's a much, much better experience.

When Windows has managed to destroy its UI and its reputation so badly that even kids prefer Linux, Redmond has a serious problem...
