|Re: [PLUG] Off-Topic Rant: Windows Install Really %%&**&#$|
I, too, now see the light.
After using Linux for training or development since 1994 I finally made the switch to move my main administrative machine off of Windows. I know many have done this well ahead of me.
The last straw from Windows was a blue screen appearing on my Windows 10 accessory computer (the one to drive hardware like a scanner that works best with Windows and to run software requiring Windows) telling me simply that "All your files are exactly where you left them" with nothing else to go on: nothing saying the message was from Microsoft although I expect it was, no way to remove the message, no footnotes, no website, nothing else on the screen and no way but waiting a long time to get the screen to change.
If Microsoft wants to treat me as if I am as stupid as a rock (with apologies to rocks), I'm gone. Merely the accessory machine and inconvertible laptops* will remain on Windows.
I have a tale of woe and intrigue on this score.
