Less high-profile companies may have just as many bugs in their "golden master" code but neither they nor "white-hat" outside groups are looking for them as hard as would with a high-profile company.

This means if I use a just-as-buggy product from a not-as-big company the only people who may know about the bugs are the people spear-phishing me and governments (which may be one in the same).

Submission + - Is Windows 10 Still A Step Back? 6

BrendaEM writes: Many people are pleased with Windows 10, but to dig though the user interface is to see one that seem like it was never finished. In the simplified dumbed-down menus, there is not enough functionality for a user to maintain their computer. Clicking on "advanced" give you access to Windows 7-style menus, going deeper, you see menus that haven't been updated since Windows 2000.

Many people are still having hardware problems such as dealing with a crippled Bluetooth file transfer which can no longer automatically receive files, thereby making the user invoke every single transfer. Many others are having charging problems with Android phones.

Even Windows 7 needlessly made it difficult to use more than two power schemes, which many people who work their computer hard may want to use. Windows 7 made the computer management event logs terribly slow to sort on even a modern computer. Windows 7 also made it next to impossible to format a large FAT32 drive.

With poor privacy practices, a disrespect for the user as far as upgrades, recent unfair browser marking practices, a lack of UI vision, will another company ever dare make a competing commercial operating system for PC compatibles?
