It's the sheep that use windows 10 without questioning that's going to cause the biggest annoyance for me though
More and more people get computers with Windows 10 that have Safe Boot enabled.
The problem with windows 10 and Safe boot (especially new installs starting from august) is that they do not run drivers that are not signed by Microsoft explicitly. You have to send them the driver, and if it's not safe enough or hurts the EcoSystem of windows (e.g kernelmode adblockers, competing products, or things that could potentially bypass DRM, like a memory scanner), they will not sign it.

And it's only a first step, i'm sure eventually all software that runs with Administrator access will need to be signed by them as well, and if they don't like it, screw you

Of course, this requirement is easily disabled if you disable Safe Boot, but most people just piss their pants when you tell them that. And it's likely that certain software will refuse to run in the future if Safe Boot is disabled

There's such a thing as kernel mode adblockers? What are those?

Anything that reroutes or blocks an ip address within the dns client would function as kernel mode adblocking, ie editing the hosts file.

Couldn't that be possible just by editing windows' firewall registry keys?

Yeah or you could go through group policy or the registry, there are probably other ways too. I think I used the wrong Latin abbreviation.

If it wasn't for all the bad press windows 10 got, everyone would be loving it. The mentality of the population is like sheep, you can guide them where you want if you know how to manipulate them. That is what happened with windows 10. People who are so dumb, they don't know how to turn on their computer are worried about Microsoft spying on them when they give their most intimate info to Google and Apple when they use their cellphones but its okay because nobody is talking about it.

Linux does have its place though, for servers because they're free and doesn't take a lot of resources which is essential because the servers sold are really shitty and crappy. They have no place for a personal computer though.


I agree people are dumb, posting all their intimate shit to Facebook and other fucktard sites. However, I disagree that companies like Masosoft or Apple should do - well - what they do. I agree with more and more Linux distributions. If MS wants to fuck off its honest customers, so be it.
