Once more with feeling: Windows 10 October 2018 Update inches closer to relaunch


Re: A powerful sense of dread

Been using Win10 since it first came out and gets update as and when there sent out.. and I cannot remember ever having a problem.. This is on a home built PC..

OK I did switch to Win7 on a Sony laptop I have as the Win10 video drivers did not work.. but the laptop is 8 years old so I understand the video driver issue..

Re: ....we are approaching a time of living in "interesting times"

Think your right.. Google should drop Android.. then all the folk who whinge about it can go to Apple.. let’s see if this is better for them.. I guess will still whinge… The point is, Google made Android but did not force all the phone makers to use it.. it’s the makers choice…

The EU is just trying to prop up the failed system with funds, its time they went the way of the Dodo... and stop interfering with our lives..

Re: "we would like to insist to invite Mark ...."

Fully agree.. if you agree to the T/C's then don't complain.. This is the same for the US.. the self important pricks that are being voted for later this year just need to make then faces being seen to do some work.. and Facebook is a good way to do this...
