Microsoft won't back down from Windows 10 nagware 'trick'

cantankerous swineherd Silver badge

had to get a cheap and nasty laptop last month, with the latest software from the convicted monopolist pre installed. failed to get my first 2 Linux preferences installed I think because of uefi issues, but Ubuntu 16 went on happily enough. ui not very good but definitely usable. dual booting ATM in case the dreaded issues arise, but it's goodbye Microsoft from me.

well, except for the win 7 desktop on the sneakernet...
