  1. Look out, if You use Windows 7, 8.0 and 8.1 - update prepare Your Windows to be upgraded to Windows 10 without telling You !!!!! Windows 10 is still months away, but that isn’t stopping Microsoft from deploying some tools that will remind users to update to the newest operating system once it becomes available. A recent “recommended” patch showed up in Windows Update, linked to KB3035583, which seemingly prepares machines for the new OS. The knowledge base article describes the patch as enabling additional capabilities for Windows Update notifications in Windows 8.0, 8.1 and Windows 7 SP1. But looking at the files the patch installs in System 32, we can see that at least one of the executables mentions downloading Windows 10. Not only that, but the patch itself seems to pave the way for Microsoft to display ads and notifications to users, letting them know when the new OS becomes available.
  2. Is Windows 10 now ad-supported ? : Not all is sweetness and light: WinRT API guru WalkingCat/@h0x0d tweeted late last night: "ContentDeliveryManager used to be called "Suggestions for you," recently it becomes "Windows Spotlight," and it's used to show ads, apparently / it can show ads on your lock screen, Start menu, or when you do something like press Alt-Tab -- don't tell me this is how Windows 10 be free !?" He went on to tweet, early this morning: "The lock screen UI is implemented by the XAML app Microsoft.WindowsDefaultLockScreen and it supports using Bing wallpapers as lock screen image, complete with hotspots, with help from ContentDeliveryManager." It sounds like Microsoft has cooked up a new, sophisticated advertising delivery system that can pump out ads even when you aren't using your computer. I'd be willing to bet that's the financial rationale for giving away Windows 10.
  3. Microsoft actively delete negative but constructive feedback I have started to wonder if Microsoft really is serious about that people should give them feedback. I have noticed that some comments on this forum, and even full threads on Technet has been removed. Proof from Technet (one of several): https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/48b116cf-839e-49a8-91db-aa6d4b2bcec5/windows-10-is-god-awful?forum=WinPreview2014Feedback I have asked Microsoft about this, but they refuse to answer.... To me it is clear that they just don't care about what we write. I POSTED THIS COMMENT (ABOVE) ON THEIR Win10 TP Forum this morning (CET) and this afternoon they deleted it....
  4. LISTEN UP INSIDERS ! According to Andre Da Costa must insiders that don't like what Windows 10 has become stop use Microsoft's products. He recommends us to start use Linux or Mac instead. As a businessowner i already have decided to boycott Microsoft as long as they continue to force their ModernUI, Store, Apps, Skype, Onedrive, the dysfunctional startmenu, p2p updates and a non-controllable Windows Update...and the list goes on and on...down Our throats ! I won't support that Windows will be some sort of a toy or mobile OS for high end desktops. Therefore i have sold off all my Microsoft stocks. Read 5th comment from above here and see for Yourself that we, the disappointed insiders, aren't welcome here [Note: on Win 10 TP Forum] any more: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/insider/forum/insider_wintp-insider_install/awesome-and-impressive-is-microsoft-being/87a41a75-c35d-4dc4-a6b0-2b26fa59abf8?page=5 StefansART The original link on Windows 10 TP forum: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/insider/forum/insider_wintp-insider_perf/listen-up-insiders/9ed4e85c-987b-44f4-a51f-93f26d13c976?tm=1427030717153
  5. I always shut down all services and autostartobject i don't need, even superfetch. I always tweak it for performance. The newer OS the more C**P running by default. That is also one of the reasons why i have choosen to stay with XP x64. On my dual core 3,33 Ghz, UEFI, 16GB ram, Samsung EVO 840 500GB, XP x64 is the fastest to start, the fastest to respond when desktop is running. All other are slower.
