Well, Linux has its own quirks - the "change the GUI for the sake of change itself" virus has not escaped them too. Neither has the forced cloud invasion (Ubuntu search). However, if this is the direction Windows is going to, I will switch to Linux as main OS.

I want to stick with 7. But MS seems intent to forcing 10 uppon us with windows update. First I had to remove and block KB3035583, yesterday I see this: KB3040272 in the list of updates which, according to MS, does this: "This update helps Microsoft make improvements to the current operating system in order to ease the upgrade experience to the latest version of Windows."

Blocked that as well, you never know what they spam you with when they think almost everyone installed it. I don't even trust them not to call something like that a "security update" at some point.

You have offline solutions for that, like KeePass. I'd rather go with the extra hassle of having to sync the KeePass database myself than being dumb enough to put it on some cloud service. And no, a KeePass database on Dropbox is almost just as dumb.

The rate at which a disease spreads through a corn field is a precise measurement of the speed of blight.
