Why does MS need to be such a scumbag with Windows updates?
Every now and then, this unskipable blue setup screen appears and forces the user to make some decisions.

"Do you want to set Edge as the default browser?"

"Do you want a 360 subscription?"

The usual crap.

But it‘s not skippable!

You have to make a decision and the UI for "fuck off" is different for every decision.

You can‘t just press the Nope button every time.
It‘s fucking deliberate. They want you to spend time on reading their shit and force it down your throat.

And let‘s not forget about people who don‘t know computer stuff very well and are confused by this. Then call us because "the computer isn‘t working again."
And you can‘t tell them to skip this slimy rotten vomit of a marketing weasel because you need them to tell you what the options are for each fucking decision screen.

    MS knows what's best for you.

    How dare you to reject their superiority?

    Yeah, but my 82 years old grandmother is using windows since August 2021.

    She needed help upgrading to 11.

    But everything is pretty much working for her

    She uses : Skype, YouTube. That's all.

    And there is mw with a MAGIC sudo chmod 777 / -r

    Yes it was a typing mistake

    Took me 3 hours to bring system back to a working state. But can't blame linux. You can do same shit in windows, it's just super rare as you usually use GUI for managing rights.

    @NoToJavaScript Why did you do that to your grandma? What did she do to deserve Windows 11?!

    @Oktokolo obviously Skype and YouTube only runs on Windows10+ /s

    @Oktokolo Because she was stressed with windows 10 constantly prompting for update. So it was just easier to update :)

    @NoToJavaScript I doubt that win11 is any different with the updates.

    @NoToJavaScript Disabling the TPM in the BIOS would have made the PC incompatible with Windows 11 and therefore stopped the nudging.
