I do not even think it makes sense inside the asylum, even a brain-dead moron should be able to see that this is not a way to go about inspiring people to upgrade.
What is troublesome is that there is no eol-date set and so there really is no 'bypassing' this OS like it was with Vista which I never used.
Where we are, well there we are... and this is a continuing battle against the provider of the OS thinking we will blindly accept surveillance as long as they do it.
This seems to be what M$ must be thinking, why else put in a plethora of spyware in the OS (that used to be against the law you know, it still is if you and I do it and so Microsoft are imo malware coders, in this case the malware is called Windows 10)
Well think again, I do hunt malware too, and I swear I will do my part fighting them right here at the frontline and I am in my full right to fight malware/malicious code and to fight for my own privacy, yours too. It is not so that it is only you and me that will benefit, it is all of us this time and just to emphasize... Microsoft the game is on. I'll even send a plea to a few thousand old friends of mine to help me out as well, you earned it, still it is entirely up to you.
|-| ( |_| schooled and the rest, you know who you are, even the scene (those of you who still have a shred of moral left)... if you read me now...
If M$ sustain this circle of surveillance, it is time to go to work once more, to help the pebcac people this time.
Fly with me tonight, participate in this task... We can bring even this goose to its knees, we have done it before, choose your weapon, I am counting on each and every one of you...
