People used to buy copies of Windows because it helped them do things
they could not do before. Microsoft used to use Windows as its cash cow.
But now they cannot. Therefore they are looking for ways to monetize
windows 11 and make money with ads, by upselling, and by whoring out
your personal marketing information to the highest bidder. Even though
they have $105,000,000,000 in cash at the bank in profits as of 2022.
That is just not enough for them.
There are three rules you must not
break if your Win 10 pc is to survive.
1. Do not leave Windows 10 to
overheat in bright sunlight.
2. Do not get Windows 10 wet.
most important, now how much it begs, no matter how much Windows 10
pleads, DO NOT UPGRADE TO WINDOWS 11.
This is all about “upselling.”
That is when you get a product suspiciously cheaply and then they
constantly beg or trick you into spending more. When I would install
Windows 7 it was nosy and upselling a little. When I install Windows 10
I have to unplug the Internet first to make it install without demanding
I sign up for a Microsoft account. When I install Windows 11 it
REQUIRES a net connection and REQUIRES a Microsoft account. Then I have
to undo that and make a local account using a shifting link in the
operating system that keeps moving deeper and deeper into the menu
system every time they update the PC.
How does Win 11 “upsell?”
pushes it’s products, like the Edge internet browser. Microsoft’s
Windows help file system, news updates and weather links open on it. By
default. Even if Google Chrome is your default browser.
It wants you
to subscribe to Microsoft Office for a year by extorting you for cash.
Would it not be better to let me just buy it? Microsoft Word has not
changed much in twelve years. I don’t need to sign up for more than I
want when I can just buy the product and we can eventually get old and
It may snoop around and removed pirated old video games
or a pirated copy of Photoshop. It wants to control your PC. The entire
device is just as excuse to sell you services and watch your eyeballs
and your typing.
This is the extortive subscription business model
that Microsoft, Adobe and others are now using as their main revenue
stream. Fortunately for MS, they make the majority of their money in
things like cloud services they don’t need Windows anymore. They also
have entertainment revenue streams like Xbox.
But they do this
anyway. Once they even upgraded both my lawyer's computers from
Windows 7 to 10 overnight without telling him! I was furious.
Windows 10 will continue to have security updates until
October 2025. That is E-O-L End Of Life. Plenty of time to pressure the
company to change how Win 11 works, which they do constantly anway.
Windows 11 is full of GREMLINS. Bugs and half baked things that do not
work right yet. It does not do anything that Win 10 can’t do. It spies
on you even more and wants to own your computer and software. Major
chunks of it like the control panel are still Windows 7 and the Win 11
parts are changed around for no reason.
Windows 11 is all about
taking away your control of your own robot. Don’t let Microsoft do that.
DO NOT UPGRADE TO WINDOWS 11. IF YOUR COMPUTER COMES WITH WINDOWS 11
ATTEMPT A DOWNGRADE.
