If a desktop user is willing to move to Chrome OS, OSX or Linux it's a sign that Windows is in really bad shape.
That's it... in a nutshell. Windows is losing market share and user satisfaction is at an all time low because of MS' strong arm tactics... its failure to put users needs and wants first. I read on one forum a few days ago that an entire extended family [17 households] and several family friends had switched to Apple's OS-X because they believe MS had overstepped the mark and has betrayed the user with its methods and strategies.
I don't know that they are much better off with OS-X, though. I personally know one person who switched to it because he felt pressured and bullied by MS, and thus far he doesn't seem to regret it. I also know 7 people who are trying out Ubuntu and a couple trying Mint from Linux because they too feel like MS has taken over too much control of their PCs and will tighten the screws even further. I have to agree, given the direction MS is going in, and I am also trying out some Linux distros to see which suits me best, not that I've had a lot of time to do so of late.
Having said that, I must exit this and other conversation regarding Microsoft and Windows 10. In fact, I am taking a break from WC for a while, the forums in particular, because I need to distance myself from derogatory comments containing : "idiot" and "idiots"; "gullible" and "naive"; "whack-jobs" and "stupid".
It is conceivable that there are people who have not had Win 10 forced upon them, just as it is conceivable that people have not [as yet] had issues with it. What annoys me is when the opposite is true.... that certain people see it as inconceivable when others have had/are having issues with Win 10, then use the derogatory names like those listed above to ram home their disbelief and unwillingness to view the issues with an open mind.
On that note, I have much to do in the real world and need to take care of it.
