What the fuck do we expect from this joke company?

Honestly, it's the same thing over and over. We are just guinea pigs either for untested user interfaces, like Windows 8 and 8.1, or untested code, like Windows 10. It's no longer an OS, it's a revenue-generating system.

Since upgrading to Windows 10, I've had "messages" telling me that my microsoft office is out of date, and to click to upgrade it (i.e. spend some money) and today I had to get someone's machine to (yet again) switch the the default browser to Chrome, and guess what? I got a little popup message saying that why not use the new, fast, Edge browser instead!

Other things that are untested include "fast start". Yes, it starts and shuts down faster, but all it is, effectively is a log-off followed by a hibernate. It causes more problems than it ever solves: if a user has problems with Windows (I mean WHEN, not IF), and shuts down, this doesn't often fix the problem on startup. They need to do a restart, not a shutdown-and-turn-on-again... but who knows this? not the users, that's for sure. And every fucking time there's a major update, this sodding setting gets set again!!!

The whole thing stinks. It's not so much an OS, it's a platform for selling stuff. This company surely deserves to crash and burn.
