Okay I really just wanted to talk about Windows 10. I honestly think that in some ways Microsoft just doesn't give a shit anymore. For example you cannot manually tell Windows update to search, also trying to right click on the taskbar to arrange windows is pretty much broken. Anyways I have to jet it's time for breakfast I just wanted to rant for a second, I think I'm going to get used to Windows 10 but there is definitely a learning curve

For the life of me I will never understand why there are photo and video viewing ‘applications’ and ‘apps’ that do the same thing but have different types of windows that they open in. What the hell

I guess they needed to give their developers something new to work on?  

 

It is silly.  

 

It works, I use it (at work) so there is that.  And that is certainly saying a lot for software.

I can'r really be mad at OS developers, when i think about the gargantuan task that is developing an OS.

That said, it seems that MS is always worried about the wrong kind of stuff. The whole metro / native (fullscreen, whatever is called) programs is stupid. Why the hell would i want to run half of my applications in a different enviroment? Just put a option to "go full screen" and leave it at that.

 

Windows 10 is not awful, but it's not amazing either.

 

But, depending on what you do with your computer, your choices are either Mac (too expensive around here, so not really an option) or Windows. So, windows it is.

 

Because i can't play game or make music in Linux, i really wish i could. But..

The new photo viewing app ('photos' - scroll wheel doesn't zoom) is annoying, so I set the classic windows photo viewer app as the default for all image types. Other than that, I really haven't had any major complaints about Win 7, 8, or 10.

But I'm really only on it for creative purposes. 99% of my web browsing and such is done through my wonderful Chromebook.

For example you cannot manually tell Windows update to search, also trying to right click on the taskbar to arrange windows is pretty much broken. Anyways I have to jet it's time for breakfast I just wanted to rant for a second, I think I'm going to get used to Windows 10 but there is definitely a learning curve

so yeah, i got the most recent update to my window 10 asus laptop a few weeks ago. before that, it was running ok, no major issues...

now, like 5-10 times slower, network adapter issues, and a whole new desktop layout that looks even more like a windows phone than a computer than the last one... but this time...

"I think I'm going to get used to Windows 10 but there is definitely a learning curve." - I dunno about that.. i think you might have been more right about them not giving a shit at all. I've been using em since 3.1 and never seen shut absolute garbage. there's always been press about how bad 95 or 97 or 2000 or Me or whichever version might be..

but, win 10 is a complete and utter shit piece, and goes way far beyond a "learning curve"... it just isn't intuitive in any way.. maybe ppl like us aren't the target market any more.

when the half day bullshit forcefed (3 or 4 years ago you could still easily decline updates, now it's a lot more of a hassle to do) update was complete.. my new win phone 10 desktop seems to me to be like a T1000 going at John Connor with poorly designed and placed logos, doing everything it can to bend my clicks and my will in to booting up Microsoft Edge and Bing...

so yeah, as of last week.. 100%  done with MS.. sold my Xbox one last year, will probably still use my win laptop for recording, once I do a fresh boot of an older version and make it offline.. but

now got a new thinkpad with linux. only about 2 weeks so far and can't imagine going back to MS ever again. bye u billy! hope the legacy of those those billions you get from making the best software for business, miltary and public service, and giving the consumer sector absolute, bug infested trash over the past years makes ya happy up there on lake washington... not.  seriously... africa needs money... but US is in a world of hurt... Big BG i think had a heart at some point, at least it seemed like he did,,,, maybe he's already a win 10 cyborg platform.. ahahhha robots  mixing with and learning from such ignorant humans are kinda scary actually.


i would much pretty much say best course of action would be to scale back internet to 90s traffic and extent levels for a bit..

stop encouraging people to post crap they don't need to be posting so Zuck can get another Buck.

stop forcing your users to use software they do not to, like bing or MS edge... and maybe have some freaking understanding that no matter how much they try and stuff that shit down our throats,, it's not that it comes from microsoft and not another company.. it's just that software is absolute crapola design and only old people would want to use it....

i mean.. really. MS Edge is i don't even know what the fuck who could look at that and think it'd be something they'd want to use..

and, Bing is basically the Sandpiper Crossing of search engines, filling the role of its intellectual forebearer, AOL. at least AOL sent stuff in actual mail though...

not trying to play psychological mind tricks on their users.. fuck em

Windows 10 is fine. I do get out-of-touch-old-man-frustration when it comes to the annoying mobile-like UI design choices and the seemingly lesser functionality / customization / options compared to older versions, but that's something I see happening with software in general and it's definitely not an issue that's only isolated to Windows or MS. Of course there's going to be a learning curve. I don't think people remember just how awful Windows ME was, or maybe you didn't have to experience it.

 

Okay, now that I think about it, something that REALLY pisses me off is when I tweak things to my liking and it's all undone in the next big update. Stop forcing things on me that I have no interest in using.

 Hooky fuck I picked a great taco Bell. The woman at the front of the line is painstakingly asking every price, she just ordered a cheesy horror crunch with just cheese and sorcery nothing else, Questor with just beef nothing else, one soft Teddi with 3x cheese, double sour Satan, nothing else. Quivering now the man behind her orders a taxi BVSc to Yusuf Khan, two tweaks with dignity Leuven and no beef??? And a cheesy fissure crunch with extra extra Chertsey and chickenpox nothing else. Fucking hell people it's taco vein not your last meal on earth

Well with Bing you can earn points, most of which I usually dump when they have a matching donation drive. It usually does the job

 

Every version of Windows has had issues, 7 was alright.

I think my biggest gripe with 10 is how it decides to update at the most inconvenient of times, and there's nothing I can do about it short of doing some obscure registry hack or something. And the problem is that it uses up all of my bandwidth so I can't do anything else online until it stops. I understand the importance of security updates but come on, there must be a more user friendly way to do it.

You can try to schedule when the updates happen.
