“The large pop-up screen, which first appeared over the weekend, gives users the option of upgrading straight away or … that evening. Users can still opt out by clicking on the red ‘X’ in the top right corner of the window, but less savvy computer users (part of Redmond’s core market segments) might not figure that out.”
See Microsoft’s steps up Windows 10 nagging â€¢ The RegisterOh, the memories M$’s nagging dredges up. In the old days it was BSODs and missing this that or the other. Now, it’s “Home invasion! Ready or not, here we come!”. The last time I saw such a message, I installed Debian GNU/Linux on the thing that same day. I really love an OS that does its job and stays out of my way. I love Debian GNU/Linux.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
