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
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
2. Do not get Windows 10 wet. Esp. laptops!
3. But, most important, now
matter how much it begs, no matter how much Windows 10 pleads, DO NOT UPGRADE TO
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
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 die together!
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.
