I think there's more to that than was reported. Because tens of thousands of people got the forced update and had to back out. And EVERYONE had the three gigs or so of install files downloaded onto their computers without their permission.

We're going to look back on this Windows 10 thing as the first harbinger of the computer apocalypse.

Well. That was a disaster. Backing down to Windows 7 again after losing everything.

Oh, dear. Windows LoLz, amiright?
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

The lesson is one I should have known at this point -- if it didn't come as a Windows 10 computer, it probably shouldn't be one now.

Oh, cool. The big Windows 10 anniversary update reset all of the privacy settings back to Super Invasive.

Thanks guys.

Especially exciting is the fact that you can no longer disable Cortana without performing a registry hack.

This is an even more aggressive update than the initial privacy-raping Windows 10 upgrade!

So, basically, everyone who drank the Windows 10 Kool-Aid and thought they had a modicum of control over their privacy settings just got screwed.

In the new El Capitan version of MacOS one must now perform BIOS hacks to bypass the App Store only download environment on your laptop. Crazy.

The machines have become self aware!
