Comment I guess they don't have any thing better to do (Score 5, Insightful) 118

Not like there's a billion other things that 10 needs fixed.

The GUI is a confusing cluster fuck.
Windows "Apps" are a joke, and need to be killed.
Windows Update continues to be horribly broken.
20+ years of bloat keeps stacking up higher and higher.

But M$ decides they need to reinvent the paint. Genius idea there!

Comment I'm calling bullshit (Score 1) 585

M$ said the same thing with Skylake on Win7. And Skylake works fine on Win7, you just need to install the Intel INF drivers and the proper usb 3.0 drivers.

So unless Intel refuses to makes their drivers for Kaby Lake work on Win7 (and I don't think Intel is quite that stupid), this is a non issue.

Or to be more accurate, its more FUD and outright bullshit from M$.

Comment In other words, no useful improvements (Score 3, Insightful) 249

I am sick and tired of modern OS's focusing on adding 8 tons of crap thats not useful to 99% of the users, and not working on better I/O, networking, etc.

Between Windows 10, and this, it sure seems like each new version just gets more and more bullshit stuffed into it, but no real improvements otherwise.

Comment Re:Bad phone surveys and ridiculous statistics (Score 3, Informative) 633

I may of linked to the wrong study, apologies in advance. I do know (and in the past, have read) that the DOJ did do a survey that showed that defensive firearm usage is much higher then previously thought. Wikipedia has a good summary of this.

"I'm amazed how many people have the delusion that they are going to defend themselves with a gun despite the clear evidence that it almost never actually happens. "

Clear evidence? Hate to say it, but even the Department of Justice under Clinton (no friend of lawful gun owners) says there are several million defensive uses of firearms per year.

Also check the studies by Kleck out of FSU.
