Windows 10 keeps changing
« on: July 29, 2018, 07:02:07 am »

Trying to find instructions how to do this or that and a lot of times finding versions that are not even applicable at all to the latest-greatest.  Windows 10 has changed significantly versus previous versions like Seven.

The menus change. Options change. Some have been entirely disabled.

What a cluster.

Windows 10 is an absolute piece of crap.   You can't disable updates anymore.   Windows 10 did an update on my machine yesterday that took 3 hours and multiple reboots.  And now things have changed yet again.   What a POS.

MS owns the entire laptop/PC operating system landscape. why can't Linux finally take over this mess?

Marketing, and legal issues (companies love to have a vendor to sue and for credibility.) Plus the normies - the intellectually barely adequate masses - are easily scared to death of anything requiring tinkering.

It's totally your choice if you want to make a move.  You can read right on this forum about the fun I've had maintaining a stable usable desktop platform.
