That does not follow from the statement which was made



Oh, you are one of those "I saw it on youtube so it must be true!"


On the contrary it does.

Who is Katherine Albrecht, really?

Why should I -- a man with 20 years experience in Network operations, routing, RAS, and AD administration take the word of a radio personality who believes in literal witches and the "mark of the beast?"

Some of you may be fine with taking the word of a modern day Ann Putnam, but I am sure many, on a site dedicated to exposing ignorance, might like to know more about this serial accuser before buying into a paranoid born-again conspiracy theory.

What's her motivation here? A new book?


Not to nitpick but as someone with 20 years with all those technologies it comes down to use. While what you run is server based os these are desktop based os. What most people use. Understand you may use a desktop to rdp to a server of any flavor, use a feature addition to get get AD tools to run from your desktop but in the end your AD infrastructure/ fsmo roles won't be running there. Routing work? Different beast.

Haven't seen the video haven't read the TC don't know, don't care. If privacy is a concern for me I can boot off a usb into a couple different OS 's.

Just found it odd to throw out your credentials and experience in that deals with infrastructure based equipment/os/software to then make a declaration on a desktop os. Unless you handle that role as well . Again don't know, didn't watch video, haven't read TC. What I will do is go ask a few desktop enginners and possibly keep an eye on the Microsoft forums.

What I wouldn't do is throw out credentials that deal with other technologies, to come off as having the answers to this desktp release and dismiss anything else.

Nice to see techs on the web site. I've been known to dabble in AD, federated identity management, SCCM, SCOM, Cisco UCS, VMWare, powershell, etc myself over the decades. Might not be at your level but always good to know someone who might be able to answer question from time to time.

Oh, your one of those who believe all YouTube videos are lies.

You are attempting to establish a false dichotomy. That is a logical fallacy.

I will, eventually, install Windows 10. And disable the questionable "features."

At least they fixed the USB 3.0 and networking issues 7 had, Phage. I've been running it for months now. It doesn't take long to disable the integrated spyware. I'm not overly fond of an OS that reminds me of my phone, but it runs pretty good. Still some bugs that need working out though.

No. It doesn't.
There are some who tend to believe pretty much anything they see on youtube if it confirms their world view. That is not the same as someone who believes nothing they see on youtube.

In any case, both are gross generalizations.

Not much of a technology pundit, certainly.

She's sort of the queen of technodoomporn. Many see that "Harvard doctorate" as being a badge of validation instead of saying "Oh, how cute, you're a school teacher. Please, let me take your opinion of something technical at face value"

If I wanted a nice lesson plan for 6th grade, she'd be the one to go to, no doubt.

So time to buy Apple stock?

Windows 8.1 is what I'm stuck with.


With enough modification, 8.1 isn't bad at all. Out of the box, not so much.

I'm not overly fond of an internet forum which panders to phone users, either.

My slowness to install is a matter of laziness. Nothing more.

Does that make you feel safe? Would having the source code give you confidence that nothing shady could be in there?

I have had Windows 10 installed for a while now. Since I have been a computer "geek" for nearly 35 years now , I have completely delved into what it does and doesnt do. So far, one of the best OS Microsoft has created to date.And about the "spying" , I have found nothing , and I mean nothing , out of the ordinary nor anything that isnt there with any other OS.What IS there , you can google and find tweaks that will turn it off.
Amazing that some people actually believe anything they hear . Usually those are the type of people that are afraid of progress. Something new frightens them. Or they know little about the technology.
If the new features actually concern you , get a good Internet Security suite. Google Windows 10 and turning off "spying features" . Learn a little about PCs and OSes and how they operate together.
Just to sum it up , did you know that since around 2000 and the advent of ATX power supplies your computer can be remotely turned off and on through the power supply? Bet you didnt.Have you ever had this happen ? Bet you havent.

Sorry I didn't know you were appointed ATS police. What does your lame comment have to do with the OP?

It's a lot closer to the subject than Kate Albrecht, who's an education major and likely couldn't code a for loop if you coated her with Sterno and came at her with a lighter. Yet, she's somehow an authority on the subject.

It isn't free. Unless you are running Windows 7 or 8.
Consider it a major service pack.



Like i said earlier, I have a stable version of windows 7. I'll stay with that as long as I can. At least till all this windows 10 speak is fully transparent.

Now that is pretty accurate. There is a push in Microsoft to change the business model from the one time purchase revenue to monthly. You can see it in their push for business to tie into their office 365 /azure models. Ie why sell a copy of office one time and worry about pushing an upgrade to get another purchase if we can offer a package that includes office with office 365 for monthly revenue.

Don't know how it pertains to desktop but that would make sense considering the business model changes in other areas

Well, I guess you'll be waiting a very long time then.
BTW, do you consider Windows 7 to be "fully transparent?"

The OS is free for the lifetime of the computer you installed it on(Non-transferable). As are Windows updates. The cost comes in when you want to add features to that OS. Although I have heard they are considering a "software as a service" type plan similar to the new office 365. We'll have to wait and see how they implement that idea.

It's worse than you think. I recall the "Holy crap, who thought THAT up?" moment when I was told "the secret THEY don't want you to know". Some system intrusion methods are bloody ingenious.
