Quite a few years ago I sent Microsoft Some feedback/suggestions. All of them were actually implemented. I was kinda shocked, but hey, they were good ideas. I've mentioned in a previous post that I purchased a Windows 10 tablet for a relative. I've also stated my overall disappoint with Windows 10 on the thing. Well, yesterday we were talking and she mentioned one thing that she's been using it for that not only is she pleased with, but actually saves her a bit of money. It involves a third-party (non-Microsoft) application, but that application relies heavily on a Microsoft technology that is built-in to Windows 10. While overall she is pleased with the application, there are some minor annoyances. I was about to send Microsoft some advice regarding her comments and a few items that I noted when helping her get the device set up and I noticed, you can't do it the way you used to, now you need the Feedback Hub app!

I've done a little bit of looking and basically, Microsoft has implemented Youtube Community level dumbassery in a feedback system. Your feedback gets dumped out an a public website for others to comment on and upvote (I'm guessing downvote too) and you can even 'earn' 'achievements'. Yeah, that's it. Never again will I purchase any device with Windows installed on it. Never again will I offer those retards advice. :silent:

FYI, I'm being vague about the 'issues' because I don't even want the advice available here. :wave:

Now you see Win 7 is the end of the line for me. Linux and Win 7 is all I need, when they stop working its time to leave technology alone. Windows 10 could be good without the spying.

You can turn off and disable everything "bad" in Windows. (Windows Server 2019 light / lite edition) Kill them with fire and stop the Windows updates and everything will work just fine like Windows 7. Thing is, there won't be any new security updates for Windows 7 soon so if you don't update your Windows 10, it's same situation but better operating system, faster, leaner.

The ONLY thing I miss from Windows 7 which doesn't existy in Windows 10 is "Aero Glass", it was amazing and I always loved it but the bastards took it away. :thumbdown:

I'm running it on real hardware. I purchased a new PC that will be running Linux and am re-purposing my old main to strictly Windows 98SE and XP. Then, there's the *true* legacy machine, an original Pentium (Pentium 1, if you will) running MS-DOS 6.22/Windows 3.11 for Workgroups. The true legacy one ***might*** eventually get NT 3.51. :geek:
