Fix: Update to Windows 10
The update from 7 to 10 is still free.
Article to upgrade to Windows 10
Ahhhh....."Update" to Windows 10 you say? (I like you call it an update instead of an upgrade because it is definitely not an upgrade lol ).
Yeah. I have come to the conclusion that (today's) Microsoft (in general) and Windows 10 in particular is what you get when you let a bunch of
soulless computer nerds design an operating system and run the company that basically owns the desktop PC. They haven't really done anything
technically wrong but they have zero empathy so they just plain don't give a # about the end user. So they couldn't care less if you would rather
manage your own time and decide when to do this or that or what you actually want your computer doing.
Give someone like that a problem to solve and the last thing that will ever cross their mind is how people will feel about it. It's like an OS that
was designed by Adam Lanza. These are the same types who have alienated just about everyone who has ever tried to switch to Linux. Which,
fundamentally, there is no reason on earth why Linux should not have put Microsoft out of business and given the world free OS by now. No reason on
earth....except one. The people who develop and "support" it are a bunch of soulless computer nerds and control freaks who have complete contempt for
the people who actually have to use their software.
I recently had a nice experience with a seller on Amazon who I bought a relatively inexpensive product from YEARS ago! Now this means that the
product I bought has been out of warranty for years. But it finally gave up and died and I was a little upset about it because I didn't use it hard or
abuse it. So I took to Amazon and wrote a review and gave it like two stars and said I wasn't buying another one. The same day, the seller contacted
me and told me they would send me a brand new one free of charge. I was blown away. And as promised, I got it two days later.
Obviously, they could have ignored that bad review and there wouldn't have been anything I could do about it. They had so many good reviews my review
would have been buried.
Microsoft has monopolized the world and made gazillions on Windows for decades and this is how they repay us? If I had a choice I'd go to Linux (I
still might) but it is dominated by the same kind of sociopathic control freaks as Microsoft and the whole thing just makes me wanna puke.
