Do YOU know the meaning of MSBS? It stands for Microsoft BULLSHIT, Mary fucking mother of Christ. Visual Studio might be the only thing more UTTERLY FUCKED UP than the Win32 API itself, and have YOU ever touched that thing?! MADNESS!
First off, SURE. Go ahead, just take FUCKING HALF of my RAM. It's not like I have just 3.5 gigs to spare, you cock sucking mother fucking piece of disgusting sticky green horse SHIT. Oh, going to support pages to find an answer? FUCK YOU. This is a VITAL, yes VITAL part of the software gobblin up all your machine's resources! HAHA! YOU CANT TURN IT OFF!
But, A-HA! THEY LIED! THEY ALWAYS LIE. I went and changed the extension of all your USELESSS, incompetently written, PIECE OF SHIT sneaky background executables! TAKE THAT, YOU SON OF A BITCH! Can't launch those FIFTY fucking parallel processes now, can you?! CAN YOU?! AHAHA!!!
And what is the tradeoff? My toaster not going into cardiac arrest anytime I bring up the calculator, and in exchange I can't log in from Visual Studio to your ass-sniffing, ballsack-joggling backwater FUCKHOLE of a server anymore? Haha... FUCK YOU, BILL. I AM IN CHARGE NOW.
And the only annoyance now? Some random "FATAL" exception thrown at startup saying something's very, very wrong, but NOTHING I actually use is broken. I've forcefully disabled like 75% of the SHIT you installed under my nose when I asked ONLY for C/C++ packages, and NOTHING I use is broken!! I'm compiling libraries, a graphics engine, fucking BLENDER and NOTHING is broken!! Take a good WHIFF because this is MSBS AT ITS FINEST!
And I COULD find this funny IF it was the first time it's happened. IT'S NOT. I've lost count how many times I've outright DELETED files from a Microsoft installer that are supposedly "ESSENTIAL" according to the support boards, ONLY TO FIND OUT THAT THEY ARE NOT, AND MY COMPUTER EVEN RUNS BETTER WITHOUT THEM HOGGING RESOURCES LIKE ITS FREE FUCKING REAL STATE YOU BUNCH OF HORSE SCREWING CORPORATE ASSFACES.
Bottom line: FUCK this CRAP. This is exactly why I don't fuck with windows updates since 2016, I know the kind of SHIT they'll pull on my system! Did YOU know? Microsoft LITERALLY and REGULARLY takes SHITS on users and calls it a FEATURE! WELL, NO MOAR, BILL. I'M MOVING TO LINUX, BITCH. SOON AS WIN7 GOES ACTUALLY OBSOLETE... WHENEVER THAT HAPPENS.
I don't even have an ending for this, so I'm off to MANUALLY editing *.vcxproj files in NOTEPAD because that's WAY BETTER than dealing with the configuration editor, which is just ANOTHER gigantically MONUMENTAL endless PILE of DIARRHEA. AAAAGHHYHHHHHHH111!!!111!!!8
