How can you still trust this company?

>Not running the only worthy version of Windows and just hiding the intrusive updates.
Don't say "but muh dx12", name one fucking program that you use which has that api level.
>How can you still trust this company?
Because they won't take money from me and I don't care they know what music i listen to, what screenshots I have nor what programs I install
assuming they care
Windows 10 is very god I am using it every day.
It suits my needs very well, I am totally comfortable with it.
It also runs my games and funny youtbe videos.
I'm totally not an indian shill using an XP machine to shill for MS. Really. No I can't post a screenshot. For reasons. brb I have to go to the shitting street for a few minutes
All i can say is that you have to be a drooling fucking retard to use Windows while having illegal content. Microsoft has its dick so far up users asses that they dont even feel it anymore
ikr, first time i've used windows in 5 years and now when I mention that 10 is decent kiddies asking me how much ms pays me. Enjoy what you have and stop masturbating to people using windows.
I use Anti Beacon to turn off the telemetry, is that enough?
And then they sell those metadata to many companies. It's like facebook but with access to literally everything you do. If you like that then you've got nothing to hide, which in turn means that you're the most boring person to ever exist.
>which in turn means that you're the most boring person to ever exist.
Also why? Because I don't care about trivial issues when there are sports to watch, mass genocides happening, and elections coming up?
You do know this site is 18+, right?

most relevant piece, if you don't like this then use linux or go back to 1990. Or maybe get put of your basement, because a lot of things have happened since grade school. Also, if you think Apple doesn't do this, then I have some news for you...

>>You do know this site is 18+, right?
lololol lookee this fagt. No mate, ms wants your porn info to sell... cuz it's important and wrong... how can a company based in the closest example to a free market economy do this!!1!
I mean, I don't want the FBI to know that I watch CP and talk to my sand niggers from Syria, THATS WrONGG!
Microsoft is shit but just install Spybot Anti-Beacon and go through your settings. Also update your hosts file too.
It's not that hard. This shit has been going ever since XP anyway.
some satisfied with garbage i guess. shit-tier windows, updating all the time, & other sus behind-scene goings-on. crappy bloated antivirus nightmare-land. default ui is embarrassing. i almost dont blame a n*gga for ricin, but its a shame and a waste of time. which brings me to half-functioning garbage-distros. disasters waiting to happen. crapping out left and right. farting out shitstench-messages about being incompatible w/ everything. cheesy, hokey. enough.
the macintosh machine enlightens its user. a streamlined conduit to brighter and more brilliant plateaus. the ultimate epitome of computing at this point in time, surely the people of the future will remember it that way, and that's all that matters in the end, the journey, the winding road, leading the pack, mavericks in the field, forever-innovating and always-creating, apple mac os x . there is no alternative.
And yet with both of those you get all the Metro app fucking garbage including the store, as well as these stupid updates adding more botnet. Turns out you were the kuck after all, anon. :^)
Most relevant thread right now, so just going to throw this here:
My old HP machine got rekt while I was trying to install a new power supply so I went and bought everything else I've been needing too and called it a new PC. Installed windows 10 pro w/ KMS since the windows 7 product key on the HP chassis wouldn't work (had to be clean upgrade)
now that it allows win7 keys I still can't upgrade because my win7 was home premium.
Am I fucked /g/?
>adding Microsoft to the Windows hosts file
>thinking it will do anything
I don't. Of course I don't think MS has my best interests in mind. I reluctantly use their software since I need it, but take steps to prevent them from harming me.
I run Windows 7 in a VM with no network access. It is not ideal, but it gets the job done. It keeps my information and my machine safe.
Actually it doesnt reset them. The 1511 update is a WHOLE NEW WINDOWS INSTALL, ITS NOT AN ACTUAL UPDATE.
Did you notice you have a windows.old folder after you updated ? Yeah, let that sink in...
>This advertising ID can be used by third parties, such as app developers and advertising networks for profiling purposes.
This is complete and utter bullshit. I'm in the process of wiping all of my windows machines and running that POS under qemu when needed. Serious computer use only in the linux host.
But what about all the normies that can't escape it? That really really sucks. Their OS has become the very malware that has been pwning it all these years.
I won't "upgrade" to Win10, because it shits on the users' right to privacy. At least you can choose not to install the telemetry & spying updates on Win7.
Once 7 reaches EOL, I'll probably move on to BSD, because by then Linux will have become Red Hat+Lennartware systemd/Linux (now with even more proprietary shit and US government backdoors)
