The faster browser than Chrome thats not quite as much spyware by design. And with u-block origin its very nice to use.
AC, That's some fairly powerful stuff you are snorting.
Still using Skype? Good news! After HOURS of meetings, Microsoft reckons it knows when you're Not Active
Re: Everything Microsoft touches dies
Skype dropped of my 'acceptable' list when MS bought it.
Re: How about...
Thats far too obvious and might even result in people trusting it but I wouldnt hold my breath.
Whats really needed is a multi million pound contract that goes over budget and delivers too little too late by Crapita. Just like the last ones did.
Got rid of everything Adobe years ago, seemed bloated and slow.
Don't like their cloud 'ransom ware' offerings for photgraphers either.
Why don't these people do something useful - for the rest uf us that is,
like producing a reactor that will power all the electric cars?
Why are sat-nav directions always so hopeless?
Because they are, mine once suggested I divert and take a round tour of an open prison (you might call them council estates) on my way home along a route I drove frequently.
I sensed something malevolent and carried straight on, locking my doors, just in case.

Re: any chance I wonder...
Of reciprocal work on smoother running of Windows ontop of Linux...?
Agreed, I'd prefer Linux on bare metal
Be wary of scam e-mails?
Is that it?
Unfortunately all the UK has is not fit for purpose toothless watch dogs, spitting fines, which just pushes up prices.
How about a good prison sentence for the idiots that concocted this?
Re: How dare you!
I will not download any release from Microsoft until at least 3 years or more after it has gone Gold.
Just looking at a change to 7, maybe next year.

Nothing new then?

Expect most of the stores to close.
Takeover buisness as usual.
Don't want to use Edge?
Er, no thank you I will never use Edge even if it was the last web browser on earth.
Microsoft set the gold standard for crapiness with Internet Explorer and Edge was just refined shite.
How many times do we have to say 'You cannot polish a turd'?
Microsoft & Adobe
No surprise there, lather, rinse, repeat for ad-infinitum
Crapita and gas...
What could possibly go wrong?
Just add a large dose of 'outsourced to India'
Yes, we had a 10 base T network and if anybody kicked their PC the whole lot borked.

I would say: In short, Microsoft is the crappiest and most expensive software supplier for my type of business.
...but most people misunderstand the scope of what is done with their info.
And look as if you have just spat in their face when you try to explain.
who needs it when the free alternatives are really very good
Perhaps they need it to fix [insert application of choice] and all the other Win bollox?

Think the councils with thier ever increasing rates & over zealous parking wardens have done a fine job.
The further I keep Microsoft from my 'lifestyle' what ever that is, the better.
I have a smart watch
I paid £330 for it and some 25 years later I could sell it for £500

MCSE: oooh, how do you do that then?
I'd walk out after 45 minutes, if you can't get it by then theres no point.

Along with those "here to help" slogans.

Yes, I ran 2K well to 2010 most of the other versions were bloated, power sapping, gilded turds.
I suppose 7 was OK, but my 2K box was so reliable, loved it warts 'n all.
