    No thanks.

    Really Funny how the normie tech crowd around many blogs I read and the Shillpress are attracted to this.

    Allow me to fill the gap

    First of all this is M$ we are talking, I wonder all the people who are cheering are enjoying their Windows 10 installation which constantly updates and breaks things so that they get Enterprise get stable releases. And how the latest fiasco of removing Local Account option from the Installation.

    Next they blasted Win7 and 8.1 with Telemetry crap and bloatware on Win10 pre-installed like Candy Crush and ruining Windows permanently with As A Service model, esp enforcing Office platform to 365 subscription removed offering of a Standalone Office 2013/2016 type installs and forcing C2R office 2019 which works only on Win10. they killed USB3.0 drivers for Win7 and bribed Intel/AMD to run the new HW only on 10 and enforcing all the people to run their spyware junk with perpetual unstable OS by removing options.

    Then let us take a look back at history, the death of Windows Phone, guess how the developers never showed interest when Nadella came to power ? Chevron Unlock, I don't know if the AT people know the Regedit and .cab extension execution on Windows Phone making it truly powerful pocket computer back in the day, that guy destoryed the developers who are doing that hacks by sending C&D lawyers to their homes and brought the whole site down and restarted by making a 99USD fee for development and removed options to hack and run Registry edit etc, "Chevron Unlock XDA"

    And how Surface lags and throttles all the time and battery issues we know brother @Papusan posts everyday about truth yet the Insta and latest koolaid crowd are queuing for this junk, and all HW issues plus the goddamn garbage pricing, plus UEFI needing certification from Linux flavors. They have an Internal policy of "Embrace and Extinguish" and this perfectly suits with WSL agenda they have, the CEO wants to take all the OS installations on Enterprise from Linux to this WSL Windows by making the Kernel and Hypervisor and Containerization all under one proprietary lock down OS, they might OSS a few but the business will be only made from Azure, Office and other AaSS models. And future is worst with this GaaS from Project xCloud, Stadia, PSN joke, A FRAUD.

    Next we know how UEFI Class III has Flash Write Protection and disable CSM by ruining the BIOS controls this is already in place with all the BGA trash on the Notebook market no more CSM options so no more Win7, esp on the Alienware with PCH Boot gaurd and pretty sure they enforce proprietary low level firmware to ship their Spyware tracking (LinkedIN is their own, they support NSA data collection program) and their Edge is now Chrome backed essentially killing options of Firefox by joining hands with the bigger enemy creating a tighter grip on the Internet. and Computing Hardware.) and with BIOS EOL in 2020 it's all great right ? Less and less control, That's why I'm buying a PC soon either see the Z390 Dark or new Comet Lake new Z490 enforced BS or the X570 boost clock praying Ryzen, or the new CSL X HEDT X299 lineup or the new TR4 TRX40 lineup.

    The Samsung phones have KNOX and they Utilize a full secure layer offered by Qualcomm which has Android Boot Chain control, that's how Sony is able to blow all fuses on their Xperias regarding the Netflix DRM for HDR 1440P which uses Widevine from Google and other Safety Net BS, and the Display features like Image Processing on Bravia mobile engine and the Audio Engine processing, along with Camera Post Processing, Note - LG doesn't allow US unlocks anymore sadly, EU is fine and they don't break, Exynos breaks Knox and warranty trip also Samsung Pay, Google phones have been following Nexus days which don't break anything but no one uses them Pixel 2 Xl and 3XL don't even have many official ROMs due to the A/B active and Inactive slots system ruining the Traditional Android Recovery flashing, while the new Pixel 3 has Dynamic Partitions and Logical partitions which ruin the whole thing again and they fused the important partitions by making the Phone useless without a PC nearby for performing such tasks from Recovery partition since it needs Fastboot flashing to run TWRP on it, and future is the garbage CPC funded Read Only EROFS Filesystem innovation from Huawei not allowing user to do any changes, infact their EMUI only allows their crap. Want to know more about Android downgrade ?

    Sad that these revelations won't be popular as all are subverted.

    Finally coming to HW,
    Their Win10X which is supposed to run on Custom Intel chip which is a Surface Neo, will be a castrated OS which can only run UWP garbage or run x86 in a container (Google on how Chrome OS runs Android apps in a Sandbox and effectively kills how the Filesystem is interpreted and runs blown up UI, it took so many years to make the crappy Chromebooks runs Linux with Crouton, another Chroot without any native Bootloader level option of Dualbooting) which won't have any controls on the Low level HW of the Computer like CSM. The Chip will be custom like the AMD one from new Surface (Latest throttling mess and no way of controlling through Throttlestop or any and will have all marketing extravagant garbage - cTDP, Terminal Velocity boost, Ryzen Boost fiasco drama etc) and you won't control anything or tune it's performance, I suspect the ARM flavor of the Surface Duo which runs Android won't have any kernel source or even if it has expect a custom Bootloader with ton of UEFI and million other Fuses that Qualcomm provides to enable a perfect chastised product.

    On top this doesn't have an SD slot for Expansion or running an OS on a Sideloader device like Switch or HTC HD2, or extra space for contingency storage, enforcing OneDrive bs. This one doesn't have a 3.5mm jack nor any Media consuming features, even the 3:2 panel is garbage for everything, also the bs Surface Wireless buds which need another bloatware app

    (Bose app had some spyware issues, and all BT sets have this BS apps system, Jaybirds one app, Beats one app, Anker one app to use and offer inferior sound massively low quality just for no wires, esp the Drivers they use. No hybrid drivers ever, at max they will have a Balanced Armature with a puny Dynamic Driver which will be of garbage tuning, add the size and heft due to Li-Ion battery which adds up the Planned obsolescence principle of limited battery cycles)

    and the Bitrate they have, even Sony true wireless junk doesn't have their own LDAC, forget AptX which is max 320kbps and AptXHD at sub 550Kbps without using BLE, everyone is copying Apple crap decision while people across the world use only elcheapo buds or from Anker, Jaybirds to the more expensive yet worse sounding Beats, Bose and all and giving money to them instead of their first party junkware, how many bought - Samsung galaxy buds, Pixel buds. But look how Apple has successfully subverted their user-base by removing jack and earning billions - AirPods would account for a gross profit of $5 billion. As always any mass market targeted shiny product is as usual most inferior trash ever. And getting top marketshare at 60% by just those stupid buds which don't even have 320Kbps bitrate datarate, and this is 2016 Apple 49Cents/Dollar share on every wireless set, more here on the article. While my LGV30 has top class engineered HW from ESS9218P to the foolproof Bootloader unlock ) It's a joke when all these companies are emulating Apple in building their own walls for Orwellian bs and draconian drama from BGA HW, (Oh the removable SSD on the new Pro X is a proprietary junk from the looks of it, While I just purchased my new 860 Evo 1TB mSATA since they are dwindling in stock and probably will be the last mSATA top quality drive for my beloved Ranger.)

    But yeah the Sheep are too much invested in these junk vs the last bastion left, DIY PC market where you are in control rather than being controlled like the movie Equilibrium, we are just a few steps from it, guess already there with the latest PC agenda drivel in movies and games.

    @Ultra Male Maybe you was too fast buying iToy?:vbbiggrin:

    Microsoft launched a phone and made me laugh zdnet.com | Oct 03, 2019
    [​IMG]

    Redmond presented the Surface Duo to wild gasps. But it insisted it isn't a phone. What is it, then? Now that's a question for the marketing department, one it tried hard to answer.

    I'm trying to imagine Steve Jobs standing on stage, presenting Apple's new phone and saying: "Make no mistake, this product is a Mac."

    Instead, Apple decided to admit what it was and even tell you how best to hold it to make calls.

    People started copying Apple practices because they want more profit than satisfied customers. High End PCs, phones etc... are becoming obsolete because next year they will be slowed down or made inferior so that new products shine brightly and more expensively eventhough its last year's hardware with few tweaks and SW trickery.

    Yeah its not a phone but an experiment and MSFT is indirectly hinting "Don't Say I warned you!" since it'll be dead like WP few months or years later!

    Is there anything that works in Redmond HQ?:rolleyes:

    Microsoft is screwing up on the Office updates - pure chaos
    [​IMG] Deskmodder | Oct 08, 2019

    Hard to believe, but Microsoft is celebrating too much. Because in the update catalog, the Office 2016 updates, which were released on October 1, are now dated with the 8.10. But that is not all.

    So far, in the update catalog, you could download the Office updates no matter what as * .msu file in the update catalog and then manually install by double-clicking, so it's strange cab files. If you open the cab, an xml and an msp file are included. This does not only apply to the latest updates. As far as tested, all previous updates have now been released as * .cab updates.

    Funny how ms got in deep love with android, must be the ultimate manifestation of a "can't beat them, join them" situation. But very understandable and a good move, the homeless, miserable beggar (within mobile) finds a beautiful princess with a vast kingdom, willing to share fortune and soul (and population...) :O)

    With Windows Virtual Desktop, the bad old days are coming back Computerworld.com
    upload_2019-10-10_2-38-24.png

    This is not a good thing. Ultimately, I want computing power to be in my hands, not Microsoft’s or any other company’s. If you go along with this, as any poor sod working in Venezuela with Adobe products can tell you, you’re asking for pure misery.

    Adobe Pulls the Plug on Venezuela, Thousands of CC Users Cut off From Their Apps
    by btarunr Yesterday, 12:50 Discuss (20 Comments)
    With U.S. economic sanctions on Venezuela taking effect, Adobe discontinued its Creative Cloud (CC) subscription service in the country, stranding thousands of creators without their creative apps. Adobe switched to SaaS-only in several markets and the only legal way for creators to use popular Adobe apps such as Photoshop, Premier, Acrobat, Lightroom, and Illustrator, is through CC. Much like Steam, CC is a DRM platform that lets you subscribe to Adobe apps on monthly or annual payment plans, and provides you with the latest versions of the apps, with regular updates. You also get access to cloud-storage an asset library, and a social network of creators.


    Adobe's exit from Venezuela isn't sudden, the company has given Venezuelan creators until October 28th to download any content stored on their accounts. From October 29th, Adobe's servers will longer respond to requests from Venezuela. This also means Creative Cloud apps will break. CC authenticates users by dialing home each time an app is launched. If a user is falling behind on subscription payments or if the app can't reach Adobe servers, they are usually given a 14-day grace period before the app stops working. Executive Order 13884 signed by President Trump strips Venezuela of all U.S. businesses, which would include payment processors such as Visa and MasterCard.

    Microsoft Announces Windows 10 November 2019 Update wccftech.com | Today

    [​IMG]
    Microsoft has just announced that the company has finalized the next version of its desktop operating system. While we believed it would be called the October 2019 Update, the Windows maker has officially named it "Windows 10 November 2019 Update" with a slightly inaccurate version 1909.

    "Microsoft Now Enables Windows 10 Tamper Protection By Default"

    - Microsoft has announced today that the Windows 10 Tamper Protection security feature is now officially generally available for the Enterprise and consumers.

    - Tamper Protection prevents Windows Security and Windows Defender settings from being changed by programs, Windows command line tools, Registry changes, or group policies.

    - With the Windows Defender becoming a reliable antivirus solution and further security enhancements being added to Windows 10, malware has increasingly made efforts to bypass it.

    https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/ne...bles-windows-10-tamper-protection-by-default/


    Well at least MS is trying.
