>“One of the ways we measure our progress with Windows 10 is looking at how people are using Windows,” explained Microsoft Senior Vice President Yusuf Mehdi. “Recently we reached another milestone – people have spent over 11 billion hours on Windows 10 in December alone, spending more time on Windows than ever before.”

>Then things got ever weirder as Mehdi announced: “Here are a few fun facts on what people have been doing on Windows 10”. They are as follows:

>Over 44.5 billion minutes spent in Microsoft Edge across Windows 10 devices in just the last month
>Over 2.5 billion questions asked of Cortana since launch

Were they ever? There was a bit of a backlash initially, but "FREEEE" won brainless millennials over, and they never thought twice about spying after that.

If you are using Windows 10 right now, Anon, then you are an absolute degenerate. I can not put this any milder than that.

I remember some people here saying there was nothing to worry about, you could turn off the spying if you wanted to and even if you didn't, Microsoft wouldn't actually be "spying" on you.

I believe the term is called "hiding in plain sight." If you display the botnet out in the open so brazenly, it actually becomes easier to ignore since it blends in with the rest of the facts around it.

This is why i can't stand white racist pricks, as long as the CEO leads Microsoft in the right direction, maximizes user experience, and keeps Windows affordable for schools, then he's okay with me.

Debian-based distros are degenerate. The IAN in Debian just killed himself. RPM based distros are made by Pajeet and co at Red Hat HQ who'se main customer is the US government.

no, fuck off, this is how things got to be so bad to begin with, our children should not be indoctrinated into the botnet

I'll use windows 10 if you knock about $500 off the cost of a SP4 or SBook, Abir.
>>
I don't even care about the telemetry shit; Windows 10 is objectively an unfinished OS that is being forced down the throats of literal retards because "muh FREE OS KEY!!!".
.
>>
>>52375195
yeah like why the fuck should children learn to use the OS and other shit they are most likely to encounter at home and in the workplace and for all intents and purposes everywhere else ? fuck that.

Wasn't Microsoft's last CEO a white guy

>>52373779
I know I am, but the truth is MS has more than enough information on me that is degenerate. Might as well embrace the botnet.
>>
>>52375195
If you don't like it, don't use it.
I don't know of any Indians that mandate which OS schools or businesses use, that's mostly chosen by whites in the US and it makes sense because Microsoft produces industrial strength software so it is standard in most industries.

if you keep windows affordable for schools, you ensure children grow up knowing nothing but how to use windows

absolutely NO software should be taught in public schools. it's an unfair market advantage. instead, education-specific programs should be used to make computers genuine learning tools instead of microsoft office training tools.

also, every black person with an IQ under 100 should be sterilized to finally create equality between the races.

>>52375493
yeah, like, why do they encounter that OS everywhere anyways? because of you, mr "school the kids in office".

hey, if it's so easy to use and high quality, they could learn it in their first week anyways without rage quitting over buggy, shitty software hue hue

>hey guys, look at these very high numbers that are meant to distract you from the fact that less then 10% of the market uses win10 and out of those 10%, 99% already had win8 before we forced them to upgrade.

This is some next level bullshit MS is pulling over here.
>>
>>52378965
That's because most other news sites are all owned by Rupert Murdoch that owns around 90% of all global media. That's why all articles, everywhere you look these days, are all pushing the same propaganda.

this. We're training kids to want to buy into the botnet all on their own. My nephew came up to me the other day, all excited his teacher talked about the school moving to iPad Pros or Surface Pros, to replace notebooks.
>also, every black person with an IQ under 100 should be sterilized to finally create equality between the races.
We literally bred the poor dindus to be as retarded as possible to prevent revolts. I'm afraid it's impossible. We just have to wait a while for the Flynn effect to take its course.

Shoving ads in your face, that's all the care about really, making money by shoving more and more ads in your face.
>>
>>52383170
The problem with counting on the Flynn effect is that it stopped in the 90's and has since then actually been declining.

There's no concrete evidence as to why this has happened as far as I know, but my guess would be a combination of rising living standards even for the poor and the poor on average being of lower intelligence leading to more dumb people having dumb kids.
>>
>>52375493

If they attempted to do with Windows 95 what they are now doing with Windows 10 (for simplicity just assuming it was technically feasible 20 years ago), there would be a massive worldwide outcry and Bill Gates would most likely have ended up in prison.

The problem is that we had our freedom taken away from us piece by piece over the years, and now the frog is boiling but doesn't feel it anymore.

If that experience specifically is being screwed in the anus, I guess you're right.

How is this legal, but simply making IE the default browser almost killed Microsoft?
