Until recently politics ensured there were three separate OS teams: console, phone, and desktop. You can't please everybody, Microsoft. What I do hear, regularly, is "please don't install Windows 8 on my computer", "Can I get that with Windows 7", and "can you reinstall that with Windows 7 when it resolution scaling, easier UI, etc.
Microsoft’s refusal to allow normal Win10 users to vet patches before they’re pushed still ranks as one of the main reasons to avoid Windows 10.Back in the not-so-good old days, Microsoft http://fusionphp.net/windows-8-1/windows-8-1-much-slower-search-than-windows-8-unfriendly.html Back to Sign In Form Please Check Your Email Please wait 5 minutes for your email and try again.
