How The World Of IT Has Turned

“Samsung is advising customers against succumbing to Microsoft’s nagging and installing Windows 10.
 
The consumer electronics giant’s support staff have admitted drivers for its PCs still don’t work with Microsoft’s newest operating system and told customers they should simply not make the upgrade.
 
That’s nearly a year after Microsoft released Windows 10 and with a month to go until its successor – Windows 10 Anniversary Update – lands.”
 
See Samsung: Don’t install Windows 10. REALLY
Chuckle… How the world has turned. It was only months ago folks were telling anyone here who would listen that That Other OS would run on any PC at all… HAHAHA! ROFL! GASP!

Now Samsung is telling owners not to install “10” because drivers don’t work. Samsung should suggest Debian GNU/Linux instead. It will work with Samsung’s stuff. You see, FLOSS works. Everyone contributes what they have and everyone shares. That’s the right way to do IT. No one has to bully anyone. No one has to exclude competition. No one has to be responsible for enslaving the world. Wintel was able to enslave much of the world for decades but that’s all over now.

    All the comments speak of migrating to Linux.

    Microsoft says it will continue to provide security support for Windows 7 until January 14, 2020. That is good news. We get almost a 4-year stay of execution. Do you need to upgrade your old PC? Maybe not.

    Microsoft says it will stop offering a free upgrade to Windows 10 in July. Good. Maybe they will stop bugging people to “upgrade now.”

    There is a way to upgrade now for free, but then roll back the upgrade. You get Windows 7.

    Or maybe you get nothing.

    Someone mentioned this:

    “I’m dealing with a situation right now where the windows 10 rollback has left a client with a computer that won’t boot into windows. I wouldn’t (and won’t) do this upgrade process without having a 3rd party full image backup of my computer.”

    So, if you are really up for risk, and you have backed up your computer, you can try the free pre-2020 upgrade.

    I recommend not doing it. Wait four years. Then pay $130 for the latest edition of Windows 10. It will be a better program by then. You can also delay your hike up the learning curve.

    Do this now: http://www.zdnet.com/article/how-to-lock-in-your-free-windows-10-upgrade-and-keep-using-your-old-windows-version/

    Or just migrate to Linux and not have to give a crap about all the mess.

    Eh.
