I do think it is awesome.
However, I will ask how many starving people he could have fed or provided clothes to school children or how hard his employees had to work to earn the money he took?
I am not hating but sometimes life is not fair. My boss grew up poor and we got into a horrible argument with him yesterday. Another coworker was dating this girl who was broke and didn't have a computer to finish college. He had 2 spare laptops at home. We both argued he shouldn't give them to her as they are Macs and worth a lot. Also it was just 1 date. It got bad as we were accused of being heartless bastards.
If I ever become rich I would prefer to donate money as my boss thinks burning money is the worst sin you could possible commit. How much better could society be if we spent the same amount of money we spent at Christmas to the homeless or disadvantaged?
Most of the IT people you see hear say no to all updates with a smile.
Windows 7 does that too
Next month Edge will have a webkit extension store and will be compatible
I still use IE 11 on Windows 10 to test code. I find IE 11 better than Edge oddly. It is not the same browser at all compared to IE 6. Not awesome, but it is ok and is usable and W3C compliant now.
I just add a line of CSS code to tell edge to load the IE 11 engine for compatibility as I do not want to bother to debug it as it is still alpha level quality and no one really uses it yet.
Updating on Windows is A MUST@!
It is a malware target and Windows 10 is sooo buggy in early builds compared to today. NTFS corrupts itself if you use a builld before the April update.. The update service is the only way to make it stable
If you have a machine that keeps getting bricked it means it is old and tested for Windows 7. Not 10. It is best not to update these machines as newer hardware does not break with auto updates.
Spying of course
But all of Windows does this I would assume as NT uses both a server and a workstation service together. Also MS is known to integrate things for stuff like sharepoint to work better with IE
Seriously I have been using flashblack on Chrome for years now and run adblock plus on IE for a year two as well.
Flash is truly terrible and a risk.
This is 2016 and there is no excuse to release a buggy browser with no extension support.
Edge is more like IE 6. It crashes and is more of a prototype browser that is unfinished. It shouldn't have been released as IE 11 is better.
Edge and 10 can self corrupt as well and give random RPC
Corporate users need to keep updates on to fix the bugs which makes them uncomfortable.
I am sticking with Chrome and IE 11 for my work on 10 at home. Sorry, but don't release your shit before it is ready. Vista, IE 6, and ME should have been examples of rapid releasing and fix later and you see how the market reacts
I kept Windows 8 until last month for these reasons and still use IE 11 for testing code and sites and ignore Edge. It's not ready for prime time yet and you can forge it to render with IE 11 with a specific Css tag. Thats what I am doing until 2017 or so.
So do IE 11 and Edge.

Can you say Hadouken?
No the reason why is because of outsourcing and process engineering with automation.
In 1980 1,000 accountants and book keepers making $80,000 a year in today's dollars were needed to run a fortune 1,000 company. Today, about 8 or 9 in India making $10/hr with excel and great plains accounting and Oracle can get the job done. Accounting majors start at Walmart where they are worth more.
Indians are for those with MBAs and 10yeaes experience for those expensive $15/hr jobs.
Robots can do manual labor cheaper. Websites can automate web page design cheaper and the coders for the glue can be in India to cut costs further.
So why should companies pay more? The US government has a whole department to help you outsource and will reward you with a tax break as an incentive to screw their own citizens.
