1. The dual control panels thing has just gotten worse, the new one truly sucking.
2. The lack of sizing/coloring of interface widgets like the windows classic interface allowed. (without hacks)
3. the breaking of ddraw calls for the sake of their dwm (which needn't be the case).

windows 10 has turned into windows 8.1 with a half assed start menu. They still don't get it. I still have to use a half dozen hacks (disableDWM,borderfix), along with a bunch of shims from application compatibility toolkit, to maintain compatibility..and if I want classic interface, I need to use w8classic as well, which creates its own problems.

Well at some point these girls will have to learn those hard lessons that reality doesn't nor shouldn't revolve around them. If you're telling me a photo on some lame magazine on a register checkout rack causes them PTSD, then those girls have much bigger problems than use of a woman's picture in a compression algorithm lab.

Perhaps, but then vendors who routinely do not fix their shit promptly will have bad reputations from repeated breaches, as it should be. Hopefully such companies go out of business.

Of course, they can set them as they please, but I can also criticize 'ethical hacker' policies that are too soft on vendors.

If I have not seen so far it is because I stood in giant's footsteps.
