Comment Re:Just bought my first Windows 10 box (Score 4, Informative) 243

Unless you're running Enterprise, it's not disabled and still spying on literally everything, including sending sound from the mic to Microsoft. I was going to list some links but I'm at work and don't have time. A little searching will show you the truth.

The US TLAs would like to thank you for your endorsement of global privacy death.

Comment I rarely find offices cold enough (Score 2) 388

because they turn off A/C over weekends and whatnot to "save money" where it's probably cheaper to just maintain the temperature rather than start having to cool everything again.

My apartment is rarely cool enough either because it's from the 60's and has shitty insulation and we've had it break consistently every year for the last 3 years. The complex is run by a corporate office out of another state and local management has changed 12 times in 7 years, so rather than replacing anything it limps along with duck tape and prayers. My electric bill was $190 last month, 960 sq feet should be easier to cool.

Comment what a bunch of bullshit (Score 2) 60

You're a liar or a troll. It's as simple as that. I've lived in Indiana my whole life and experienced, firsthand, racists of all colors (you did know that anyone can be a racist, right?) but they're far from the majority. Stop playing the victim, bitterness like this doesn't do anything but keep you locked in and your eyes closed to reality.

that this kind of bullshit is okay, same with Apple.

Microsoft has always been evil but they're not even trying to hide it any more. I'm a hardcore gamer so for now I'm sticking with Windows 7 Ultimate on my desktop but my next upgrade will probably not be Windows. Not that Valve is spotless but I sure trust them more than the other, worse, options.

Spending time trying to clean the shit they rubbed in your face out of your eyes doesn't help anyone else. How about just don't let them rub shit in your face?

Promising costs nothing, it's the delivering that kills you.
