Comment Re: Goodbye Subscription Windows..... (Score 2) 285

The day I loaded Windows ME is the last time Microsoft got a penny of my money. I have actually been pretty happy with Macs and Linux over the years. I use Windows at work so I'm not totally out of the loop. On a whim I put Windows 10 on a virtual machine. Honestly... I think it's the best, most stable, operating system Microsoft has come out with in a long time. Once you rip out Cortana and remove all the spyware Microsoft puts in there, it is quite nice.

Exactly. The difference between to two is not THAT large. I am a total Apple Fanboi but a Droid user. AT&T service blows here. Anyway... In order to get the full Droid experience. You have you root your phone. Then Verizon does it damnedest to make sure if you load a new ROM it is a pain to find the SBF to restore it factory. Usually there is a few cease and desist letters then it shows up so many places they forget about it. Then, if you are unlucky enough to have the Droid X you get to also deal with eFuse and Verizon doing it's part to make sure only it's content comes across the HDMI port. Sorry, grass ain't that green in Droidland.

Yeah but when you live there is sucks. When I see those AT&T coverage commercials I SCREAM!!!! (well it is more for the wife since she has an iPhone)

Where I live I can't even make an AT&T phone call within 10 miles of my house, yet my internet is provided via Verizon Wireless Broadband.

I pray the iPhone come out on Verizon soon...
