Re: Windows 10 2H2020 Update to be major release, and much more intrusive

In my experience every time a software company says less clutter it means they want to hide or eliminate ever darn thing I am use all the time and that is supposed to be helpful?!

I wish Microsoft and others would stop changing their interfaces for fluff reasons and concentrate on stability and security more.

Or at the very least not release major required updates which break modems or printers...

Hey that's not right, their updates break way more than just modems & printers.  Heck some even delete your data!

I have windows 10 setup more like Windows 8 with the full screen instead of the small amount of space shown with the default Start menu.

But if Microsoft thinks a program that runs without issues shouldn't be used, they should be able to delete it!

It makes sense the less you think about it.

thats what they call job loss prevention actions, never intended to give their customers a fully working and functional OS, whitout the bloat ware and options to users who want to get ridd of some of the things that eat up processor time, mem and harddisk space..

More and more win10 gets nintendo contents that do not add up to any functionality at all, especially if you don't use it.

For example: hyperv, xbox crap, remote desktop, fax, printers, scanners, finger printing,one drive, cortana, all the default win10 app crap that no one really uses or want to use, and i could go on and on.

With the last few updates they limit the user more and more to be able to disable certain services(greyed out), and more and more crap comes in that you as a user cannot disable, you are basically not the boss of your own devices, microsoft decides what is good for you, microsoft is your big daddy and daddy makes the rules.

Microsoft basically has become his own enemy, and one day a lot of users will look for an alternative os that provides what they want, and not what the maker of the os wants.

Storage costs are at all time lows, adding some features to windows is mostly for application developers 

I use Corel and Adobe among other packages

Re: Windows 10 2H2020 Update to be major release, and much more intrusive

The more I think about this, the more it kinda upsets me they are making changes like this at this point.

The biggest complaint I get from company users is when something changes. One little change really messes some people up. 

Right now with so many still working from home and the inability to really sit and work with those users who don't easily get change is just not possible at the workplace in many cases.

Microsoft could not possibly pick a worst time to change things that will cause stumbling blocks for users.

With so many issues facing IT staff and end users at this point nobody needs anything more to be a problem.
