Oh dear...

Oh, Microsoft...

You had such an opportunity.

You could have tested Windows 10 to death, possibly even set up a "revert to Win7" theme (for the UGLY FLATSO haters), and above all, focused on security and privacy, and limited telemetry to crash reporting at the absolute most... with Google and Facebook increasingly coming into question about how they use the data they gather, you did have a shot at re-inventing yourselves to all but the like of those who are still stuck in the browser wars...

... but no. You had to try and do the same damn thing as Google and Facebook. And you had to do it badly. Is it that you just can't stand someone else being the villains or something???
