Condor348043yAs for me? I'm going to leave this system disconnected from the internet, make a backup, restore from it and if that works disconnect that backup entirely. Only after that's all successful I will connect and let this thing phone home and update.
If you think that this is treating Windows like a time bomb, that's because it is. The extent of data collection by Micosoft without consent is way too extensive. If only the GDPR would cover that, instead of those stupid cookies...
My boi here has been fighting MS Windows for a while now :P catch some zzs man! Maybe you'll feel better after!
jeeper54763yThis is why all the people who defended MS when they bought GitHub got it wrong. Just because Microsoft did some good things (TypeScript, VSCode, OSS donations) doesn’t mean they stopped doing bad.
Python55533yIt's like being blackmailed and then get thanked for your choice.
Condor348043y@jeeper My thoughts exactly! A few goods doesn't make people forget all the bads. And Microsoft.. they've still got a fucking lot of them. Allowing them to embrace open source like that at all seems risky even. Because Embrace, Extend, Extinguish. Microsoft should really get all their employees drowned in a pool of bleach already.. that Nadella fuckboy first, just like that fucking Verizon Apple Pai. And then some IS fuckers can have some fun with planes at their headquarters I guess ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
