Re: Microsoft is trying very hard to kill itself.
"and yet these are exactly the same people who are bitching about Win10 telemetry."
So... don't use a chromebook because windows also has telemetry?
With Windows, running on "your" machine, you get all the arse ache and the spying. There's no real alternative, for consumers.
I'd rather my "support clients" use a maintenance free Linux than Windows, which would require either themselves, PC Word, or myself to fix.
My (least computer literate) child has a chromebook - Zero problems with it. Everything they do is online regardless of OS.
