Re: I'm done with Windows.
I don't personally enjoy having to hack a Windows laptop to bits to get it to run in the way I prefer. But MS isn't worried about me. They're worried about Joe Schmoe who doesn't know a registry entry from a hair dryer. I don't blame them for forcing updates on the hundreds of millions of sheep. Any more than I blame Apple for auto updating iPads, or Google for auto updating Chromebooks.
As we all know, if you want fine-grained control of a computer system, you are going to be using Linux or some version of BSD. No sense complaining that Windows doesn't fit the bill when it was never meant to in the first place.
