as it stands, W10 has severe issues with respect to privacy and reflects a microsoft emboldened to be more intrusive than ever before. so i won't be moving on until i know how to properly lock it down.

also, as Rybags mentioned, the borking of traditional access to safe mode since 8 can be a major PITA.

having said that, man, they really have sorted out most of the UX issues that were only partially fixed by 8.1. its still all a bit ugly and monochrome imo, but functionally, everything you need is right there. its more intuitive than 8 for noobs without making power users feel like they are in a stupid cage. theyve finally (mostly) hit on that elusive and oh so critical balance.

in other news...non-developers can now side load windows apps, which is a very welcome easing up on the walled garden direction theyve been veering towards.  (never go full retard)

Considering how much Android and Mac OS do the same data mining as windows 10, it's unfair just to target Windows 10.

Move to Linux if one wants to avoid their OS data mining them.

​well thats a non sequitur — since an evaluation of the relative faults of OSes by other companies was well outside the scope of my point — and one that implies that calling attention to the significant bolstering, in the latest iteration of windows, of practices that many deem undesirable, is somehow "unfair". 

 

by the way, i saw you taking issue with the real estate laws in this country the other day.  you will note that nobody drew a false equivalence to the real estate laws in other countries, nor suggested that any number of countries with laws 'just as bad' in any way should diminish the faults you perceive, nor that expressing your view was unfair, nor that if you think the laws need reforming maybe you should just move to another country with better ones.  lets not get ideological, mkay?

I just said that about Windows 10 because I have deal with iPhones, android phones and well 100 versions of Windows as part of my work. People say windows 10 spies on them, and yes I agree ... more than win8 or 7 (win8 did secret undisclosed spying but anyway). As I have messing around with iOS and Android phones, the spying is baked in and hard to shut down - at least in Win10 Microsoft give some options to turn some if it off. I have an Android tablet and an Android TV device.

iOS is actually shockingly 'private'. From what I know the only mining is Ads, and app list. (and Siri, if you use it)

Is there more?

And this comes from an Apple product hater (as a consumer, they just dont match how I like to use a device).

I mean, iMessages being encrypted end to end with private keys? Yes please..... Bring the damn thing to android

​yeah, proper virtual desktops were a long time coming.  in 7 i have to use tools like the Sysinternals Desktops thingy.

one thing ive always wanted to do, although i am probably the only one who wants it, is define boundaries on the desktop for an application to snap into when maximised or when dropped into that area (a bit like tiled / stacked / side-by-side windows but with with option of multiple permanent boundaries that can be either vertical or horizontal).

nah you're not the only person.  If I had such a thing existed I may move to a large 4K screen instead of multiple 1080p screens.

​theres this:

​Dell's 4-screen multimonitor setup looks like one enormous 43-inch display

https://www.extremet...nt-1080p-panels


​and when i can afford 4K i will definitely be looking at this software:

https://www.displayfusion.com/Compare

​one feature of which: "Monitor splitting allows you to divide your monitors into multiple "virtual" monitors with their own Taskbars, Wallpaper, and Screen Saver."

No, but my best mate does, and lets just say we BOTH teach each other a few things :P

 

 

EDIT:

You gotta admit though, "ssh" sounds like an out-of-breath snake, as opposed to "shh" being a shoosh sound :P
