Windows365


It’s Official. Windows365 is here. Windows Subscriptions are ...

When the “free upgrade” to Windows 10 started I felt like something didn’t smell right.  To quote the last paragraph of that 2015 post: In a way it is a stroke of genius.  How do drug dealers do things?  They give you free taste..get you hooked then drain you dry.  I am not saying I know this for sure but the pieces line up this way.  Unless Microsoft says otherwise that’s the stance I am […]


The Windows 10 Disaster Continues

The windows 10 disaster continues. https://www.extremetech.com/…/242537-microsofts-latest-wind… I have removed the update from both of my windows 10 dual display machines that play games and done the one thing you can do to regain control on Windows 10 updates….shut off windows update service completely. Once I have some time this weekend I am going to revert to Windows 7 on my primary machine. Enough of this BS. Once 2020 rolls around I doubt i will be […]



Remember when I mentioned Windows as a service? Windows ...

I have been mistrustful of Microsoft even since Windows 10 started coming out.  The constant Windows as a service mentions and the nearly illegal and almost malware like campaign to get Windows 10 everywhere really had me not liking the entire Windows 10 ecosystem.  Not only are there still huge usability issues I have found with Windows 10, there are also other aspects I do not like.  Microsoft has also announced some changes to Windows […]


Microsoft is DESPARATE to get Windows 10 everywhere

To the point of saying that windows 7 is as dangerous as running windows xp.  Windows 7 is still supported for security updates and is no more dangerous to run than before. To quote a MS marketing person: Microsoft chief marketing officer Chris Capossela told a viewer on Twit TV: “We do worry when people are running an operating system that’s 10 years old that the next printer they buy isn’t going to work […]



Microsoft is determined for everyone to upgrade to Windows 10 ...

I noticed my disk usage on my SSD suddenly went up by nearly 6 gigs. I have also seen many windows 7 machines complaining about failing to install important updates. I dug around and found this huge BT hidden folder on my machine. My machine is connected to Active Directory which is supposed to NOT be Windows 10 eligible. So now Microsoft is putting this huge 6 gig OKS image on ALL machine even if […]


A golden time to buy a new computer is now ...

Right now is a good time to buy a computer.  Why?  The upcoming release of Windows 10 which will be free for most computers.  What I am advising clients who do NOT have domain controllers is to buy a computer and basically turn it on and let it get the updates that allow the Windows 10 offer.  On July 29th of this year Windows 10 will begin rolling out to those computers.  I  do suggest […]



Windows 10 is looking more like Windows in the Cloud

There is more read the linked article.  I noted a while back twice aobut my misgivings about Windows 10.  One is the trademark for Windows 365 and the other is my general feeling about this Free Windows giveaway not smelling right.  Unless something comes out from Microsoft about this the linked article simply confirms my suspicions. Windows 10 is famously ‘free’, but Microsoft has been worryingly silent about just how free it really is. […]


Update for Windows 7 and 8.1 is going to try ...

With this Windows as a service push Microsoft is making AND the fact they have trademarked the name Windows365, I see no reason to believe anyone who says Microsoft is NOT going to make windows a subscription like Office365.  Maybe not at first.  For those technically inclined look at this code in the linked article snippet.  Microsoft wants you to head to Windows 10 and will do everything they can to entice folks to do […]

Microsoft trademarks ‘Windows 365’ – Neowin

I wish i could fine the article about waaaay back when Office365 was first coming out somebody on the net said windows is headed the same way as office.   I said earlier it isn’t a matter of IF it’s a matter of WHEN they take windows to the cloud.  Remember my earlier post where i said this giveaway to Windows 10 doesn’t smell right?  If you want to keep your desktop stick with windows […]
