If the current Windows 10 updates are this evil, imagine what they'll be like when users have no alternative.

You mean like the growing user base of Mac, Linux and *BSD? And Android... They are going to push a lot of people away. And even if it is only 15% that will change the landscape in ways they can not imagine.

However, I don't see the need to get a laptop from an inch thick to 1/4-inch thick either. That comes from the pursuit of the new shiny toy that looks cool, not from a functional reason.

Actually, small is good for some people. Essentially, all they need is a Windows tablet with a real keyboard, and they do not want to lug around a lot of weight.

No, they replaced that with Mini DisplayPort, HDMI, Thunderbolt and USB-C. All of which are very small.

Not on anything I own... Other then the tablet which I do not plan on hooking up to a large screen any time soon. (ever)

"and is by far the longest-lived port on the PC."

Serial port?

Who the fuck wrote this piece of shit revisionist ignorant blurb?

Not to mention a total BS premise. They have been saying the serial port is dead for DECADES! And I can't tell you how often my USB floppy drive has been a life saver at a client with critical data on floppy and no floppy drives to read it!

And does the moron know that the DVI ports that are now on most motherboards HAVE FUCKING VGA BUILT IN?!?
