Note to support techs. Do your customers realize what they are getting for their brand new Windows 10 installation? Do you?
Sadly, for the majority of Windows users, this will be business as usual. And yeah, this has been known for a while now but that doesn't decrease the level of audacity Microsoft slings around, while stomping around inside your computer.
You have been digitally bitch-slapped.
How much will you simply accept before you realize that you no longer own your computer? If you cannot control what happens inside of your computer, then your computer is not yours. It is on lease from Microsoft.
And no, I am not condoning the pirating of software. Microsoft does this "to protect" honest users. My A$$. Even if you accept this for the reasons stated, what else is Microsoft doing inside your machine that you do not know about?
What you don't know won't hurt you, right?
And yeah, many people are stuck between the Windows/Office bookends, and sadly; many of you have to use it at home where you work after hours or telecommute. It sucks to be you, I understand.
But for others that remain within the Windows ranks just because you don't want to learn anything new? I suppose you are used to this kind of treatment. The part that disturbs me is that it doesn't bother you.
But as the last word, you are right. It's none of my business. Unfortunately, you are allowing Redmond to decide what is your business and what is not.
