Fuck that. Can I turn it off? Everything works pretty OK now, and I know that'll change, too.

I'm going to Linux now. See you on the other side

Re: just a heads up windows 10 getting huge update

"With over 350 million devices now running Windows 10, customer satisfaction is higher than any previous version of Windows.."

Oh yeah? Really? Nothing about the court cases for violation of customers rights and how this is the most aggressive release of Windows ever..how it keeps resetting settings when it updates..how it collects info on you and doesn't make it straight forward enough to opt out.

At some distant future point folks will look back and almost quote Charles Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities, when they remember Windows 10 and say, "It was the best of Windows, it was the worse of Windows".

Don't want to support that kind of shit in any way.

Tbh, the sooner I can move over to a Linux system that will safely run VSTs, the better. Not trying to piss any MS lovers off..it's just a personal thing.

I tried to install this update and the prompt is telling me that my linksys WIFI dongle is not compatible with this version of Win10.

Re: just a heads up windows 10 getting huge update

I've posted a few times how to block. Joem's got some tricks he's posted (again above).

My recommendation is Spybot Anti Beacon.

Here's the error I'm getting upon trying to update.

Code:

It's a device I currently use. I'll just hold out on this update sheboigen then. Jumpin Jiminy, man. Windows and their silly compatibility issues.

I read online yesterday they've cut the change-over window time to install Win 10..now you have less than 10 days at the time of writing this..

I'm still on 7 and even xp on my machines here and all of this sounds very bad.

This all sounds like a mac os update thread. Very bad indeed.

Just read in an article over on PC World the Anniversary Update reactivates ads that have already disabled..not really surprised by this at all, though, tbh.

Re: just a heads up windows 10 getting huge update

Windows 10... It's a love/hate relationship for me.

Overall I like it, but after that last update I had to go right through my privacy settings again.

I tried Ubuntu some time ago, and I liked the simplicity of it. And it was really fast... Gave my old laptop a new lease of life.

But from a music production point of view I couldn't find anything that would serve me at all and for that reason I had to continue with Windows.

Yeah..I feel exactly the same way..i would love to move over to Linux completely, but having tried various distros over the years, I feel it's just not up to it at the moment..plus not enough VSTi developers are sup[porting it either at this stage, which is a real shame.

That said, I live with the very real hope that the current situation will change for the better one day.
