Still a big fat NO to Windows 10 here.

Not much RAM in your cloud based graphics card is there?
Residents should be at liberty to shoot drones if they pass over their property with something like an air rifle, unless it's a drone-cop who have a search warrant.
"Or you can say that we are at fault for choosing Microsoft."
Yes, that's it. When you go cloud hosted you are subcontracting your responsibility to a third party. We are cloud hosted on an Exchange platform but NOT one that is operated by Microsoft. To my mind the worst place you can have your Exchange mailboxes are Microsoft.
KCOM couldn't organise one.
Many ISP's - to name BT for one but probably most, simply do not respect published TTL's.
We've seen issues where we set low TTL's during a site migration but the ISP's simply don't go back for another lookup. You end up having to fanny about with DNS providers until enough time has passed for the providers DNS to re-do the lookup in its own time.
Fight back people. Ditch their increasingly awful operating system and lack of customer focus and talk with your feet.
Cloud is over-rated. There *are* real places for it, like cloud-hosted email, of course web sites and public facing web applications, but for privately hosted data, cloud does not make sense on any level that I can see other than *convenience*.
Addressing this benefit directly: since when was convenience the pinnacle of achievement? How about security, privacy, and so on?
Microsoft have been shafting us all for the best part of 20 years that I can recall, no surprise their wrinkled old dicks need a bit of lube to encourage their crud-stick of an O/S onto your hardware.
I use 'HostsMan'. If you do too please make a donation:
"When is ad-blocking ethical?"
Er, that's easy. 100% of the time. I will decide - as far as is practical, when I do not wish to see an advert. If I can skip adverts on the PVR, then I will. Same principle for adverts on the web. If I am driving along and am advertised to on a billboard then there is not much I can do about that, but that's life.
To all marketing types out there: Suck it up and go get a proper job. Stop promoting consumerism, it is a fundamentally flawed proposition.
Microsoft should take Windows 10 and it's 13 PAGES of privacy settings and shove it where the sun doesn't shine. After 20 years supporting Wintel PC's I've gone Mac. I'm giving myself to Win7 EOL to ditch MS.
A few months ago I ditched 2 x £20pcm contracts with Vodafone and got two new contracts with Virgin at £3 per month each. They were also unable to move contracts from one business to another because "their system will not allow it". If there is any justice in the world Vodafone should bleed customers until they realise what poor service they are giving.
jb99 I understand what you are saying however as a long time Windows user in the IT industry I am satisfied with my recent Apple experiences ion iMac and delighted with Apple's response to the FBI case.
On the face of it at least, Apple based technology is right for people, whereas Microsoft based technology is right for whatever the Microsoft Agenda is.
Very eloquently put and sums up my feelings too. I have been in professional IT support for 20 years and I am tired of them fuc*ing us about.
I am giving myself until January 14, 2020 (Windows 7 EOS) to move as many people as I can away from Microsoft, probably will move to Linux / OSX where possible.
"Ballmer is also reported to have described the threat posed to Windows as having already passed. "
What an idiot. Windows 10 is the biggest single reason I am planning a switch to Apple and Linux based systems as soon as I possibly can.
I'm running HostsMan alongside Opera... don't need that third party adblocking.
And then start playing Knights and Dragons :-)
