Comment Why is Microsoft not top of the list? (Score 0) 320

I'm being serious, why isn't Microsoft Windows 10 top of the list right now?

It comes embedded with software that meets the definitions of spyware (recording your mouse movements and keystrokes) _and_ malware. They even have a way of changing/upgrading it by a way of a command and control server (windows update).

When you can't even trust your OS, further blaming additional software on it seems amusing.

Also, why the hell do I need to sign up for a fsckin account on their website for drivers which should have been included in the package in the first place!

It's pretty sad that situations like this lead down the road to a nanny state.. but the people texting and driving don't seem to realize they're the driving it in that direction.

Also, to the comments about the popo getting a free pass, in some places LEO's and emergency response are specifically exempted under the law to use their data terminals and conversely their GPS apps.
