Well, Microsoft is getting ready to annoy its faithful Windows 10 user base with yet another prompt. This time, Microsoft wants Windows 10 users to switch from using a local account to their online Microsoft account.

    yeah this was me. swapped to Mac. Couldn’t bring myself to sign up to all the debugging that would go into having a Linux based laptop. I left windows due to the overhead of disabling the bloatware, popups and general bullshit. I didn’t want to swap that for other ongoing issues. Just give me something that works. It’s an OS, not a hobby project

      Yeah, but Mac is actually weird and unintuitive. Like, I never figured out that to install programs you have to drag them in. I just clicked on the icon after opening the .dmg

        My brother got a Mac for work. He couldn’t get used to the fact that a simple press of the Home key wouldn’t go to the start of the line; it goes to the start of the FILE.

        Why??

        It’s so funny that you use the word “unintuitive” and the describe the most intuitive way of adding a program to your computer. 😁

            How do you get new furniture into your house?

            Our way, since I’m a Windows and Linux user, of adding applications is a remnant from the old times. We have left the age where computers are maintained by men in white coats and powerful computers took up while buildings.

            Apples way is more intuitive since it mimics how it most often works in the real world.

            Computers should adapt to humans, not the other way around.
