Comment Re:Kind of consistent, isn't it? (Score 5, Insightful) 210

I couldn't have stated it better than you have here. Windows 10 offers little to no feature, function, or benefit that would motivate Windows 7 users to switch. The only thing I can think of is arguably a better interface for touch screen users. Windows 10 is crippling from an efficiency-of-use perspective. Want to update your system? Try hitting the start button in Windows 10 and type "Windows Update". The search results are ridiculous and there are literally 100s (perhaps 1000s?) of examples of clunky experiences just like this one. Getting Windows 10 to behave properly in an enterprise environment is also a nightmare. We spent weeks tinkering with Group Policies in an effort to make Windows 10 stop spying on the agency, and to stop terrorizing our end-users with frivolous prompts squirting out of every orifice in the user interface.

Why would I check a device that I typically don't need to touch (umbrella) to determine if I need an umbrella. Wouldn't the better solution be to check another device I have in my possession daily to determine if I need the umbrella? Admittedly, I only read the article summary. Go easy on me!

I have not ridiculed you for exercising your right to free speech once in this thread. In fact, I am exercising my free to free speech in parallel with you. However, I am ridiculing you for being ashamed to be an American. I thought I made that clear.

You certainly also have the right to be ashamed of being an American, but I kindly encourage you to “buzz off” yourself, pack your shit, and move to another country. Since you have difficulty with reading comprehension, I’d recommend packing a good reading comprehension book for the trip while you’re at it.

You can twist my words all you want, but I'm not the one who is ashamed to be an American: that would be you. Please keep your future posts on topic, and that topic is you being ashamed to be an American. Didn't you start this thread? Why must I explain this to you? Oh... I forgot already: your reading comprehension issues.

If you didn't get it yet. I'm not a Trump fan. Perhaps what you might also be starting to realize is that I'm also not a fan of a childish, sensitive, immature, whiny, middle-aged man (man is disputed) who is "ashamed" to represent his country when his feelings get hurt or his precious Hillary doesn't get elected.

We need real Americans to fix this country. We need people to take pride in this country so that they'll have an interest in improving it. We do not need people like you. Pack your shit and move somewhere else.
