    I have a crazy friend who says that operating system should do more stuff than just send data to Microsoft. Is he crazy?

I'm just glad I got out of IT as a profession years ago and won't have to deal with it.

      Except it is not a matter of a single click. MS made sure the users were quite informed how the whoe thing happened this time. It's was a bit surprising, really, but to their credit - you simply cannot go through the update process without knowing what that whole thing is about. They know such a huge update can break things so their legal team sure did make them go out of their way to inform the users exactly what is going on.

        Never put words "users" and "informed" in the same sentence. It's not Microsoft's fault perhaps but average user is a person who doesn't realize they can search Windows 7 start menu for installed applications even though there's a search bar that explicitly says "Search programs and files".

          What is crazy there for you if he say "operating system should do more stuff, than just send data to Microsoft"?

            Cool, enjoy a party now. Please wake me up once hype stops

            Cool party but it looks like they forgot to invite any women.

              Of course, why not throw super computers and clusters into the mix to move the goal posts the further?

                Even though I've been out of the IT business for a couple years now, burned out after +20 years of doing it, I'm getting calls and emails from former clients as well as friends asking me "what's the deal with this windows 10 thing". So no matter how well you try to explain something technical to non technical people, there eyes will usually just gloss over and they'll blunder on with what they're doing regardless of the consequences. Not to mention the fact that people see the word free on something and immediately assume it's a good thing.

                  Who's moving the goalposts? He said Win10 installs had already outstripped Linux installs; he was wrong. Simple.

                    what makes you believe that there is graphics of "all internet traffic"!?!? this graphics are about their interent traffic and it's 10% of the expected traffic....
