Yep, Win 10 sucks. I cannot trust it for my automated systems (radio meteor detection, satellite weather systems, astro imaging, etc.), doing real science that cannot be interrupted by the "Oh I upgrade your computer NOW" bull that comes with win 10. I will need to port some of my systems to linux (several components of my systems are already ported to Linux) and then just firewall off any that require windows so I don't have to trust them to garbage 10.
I have a *new* 17" screen lappytopp, I installed a new 500g HD because older HD went south. At the time I had taken it to a Computer Shop. They wanted 500 to install a new solid State drive and windows 10.
I guffawed and headed out the door
I bought a 500g SS HD online for 85 (Tiger Direct), installed myself in 5 minutes, bootlegged a windows 7 for one partition and a linux fedora for the other
Windows tried to jack me with the "auto-update", thwarted that one.
Now I'm dealing with a "your windows isn't genuine" message.
I don't care that Microsux isn't going to support win 7 anymore. i am still running win XP on the garage laptop and haven't had any of the predicted problems when that support was dropped. i can sill internet out in the shop just fine.
Fuck win8, win 10, offsite storage for a fee, fuck the governman, fuck the updates
If they get it together I think it will gain HUGE momentum. The corporate sector is tied by legacy to Windows BUT wants low cost and a no BS operating system. Much like many of us.... I can see this working but it has been a slow path out of the primordial ooze for these guys. Lets hope they make it.
