I Hope I Never Have Windows 10

In case you missed it Windows 10 was launched yesterday. No one is quite sure what happened to Windows 9. Maybe they figured 8.1 was Windows 9. If that's the case it was shit. It was so bad I took steps to stop my computer auto-updating to 8.1. Anyway, Windows 10 is out and the initial impression? Not so great.
It doesn't even look that good
Privacy is a major issue in the world today. Windows 10 are taking privacy and wiping their arses with it. By default Windows 10 knows pretty much everything you're doing. If you use the Cortana assistant then it sends almost everything to Windows. It actually shares your wi-fi password with your contacts. There's no reason for a lot of the things that they do. The worst part is that while these kind of settings can be turned off, the process is complicated. Not to mention things like this shouldn't be the default. One thing I liked about Windows 8 right from the get go is that all the settings about sharing information are off by default. Most users won't know these settings are there or how to turn them off.

THERE ARE ADVERTISEMENTS IN THE START MENU. ADS IN THE GOD DAMN START MENU.

I hope this kind of shit is corrected in the future. Then again developers never seem to learn. They always throw stuff like this in, then change it, then still put it back in, hoping no one notices this time.

If it wasn't for the fact it was hard to get games to run on Linux I'd have made the switch already.

The truly terrible thing they've done though? The absolutely worst thing they've done? They made Solitare a FREEMIUM GAME. Fuck that shit. Fuck you Windows.


If you're interested in learning more, as I couldn't go into full detail, you can find ot more here.

  4. Tim just came out and told me had updated to Windows 10 and asked if I was going to do it I said I wasn't sure thought about it but hadn't done it, I might try out his computer to see I like it. Didn't know about the privacy thing though don't think he would be happy about that
