    Official - Windows 10 Worst Crap Ever!

    On a previous Windows Update the Microsoft Store app was gone. Tried several times this last month to get it back. Finally came across TheWindowsClub online which gave step by step instructions to get the Store back. It is still Windows 10 but the deck is a little better now. One more tool for the Windows PCs.

    Search for "Media Creation Tool" may get you some options.

    An interesting thought. The MacBook has the 32 bit Windows 10 version but has a x64-based processor. Just did the quit Insider task to keep the MacBook on 1809. I may be laughing quite a bit in the next few months. Which ever way the comedy flows. The Apple does some magic things with software.

    Win98????? Did it ever work???? The want-a-be Windows 10 October 2018 release is quite good when compared to Win98! Haven't forgotten the wasted hours from 20 years ago. Windows 10 for October 2018 if it does get released now is a better vintage of crap! The MacBook will get to live with the next released version of Win 10, the prerelease is already running on it. Just a Wisconsin farm kid who learned to live with the finer aspects of crap.

    As a matter of fact, it's a matter of crap. Windows 10 scenario: 1) It's not working! 2)Turn it off or restart it? 3)When it comes up again, it's working!? I've heard this story so many times on the Insider Forum, I just figured it was programmed that way!? It's a laugh! That's why it's fun. Comedy Central or Saturday Night Live just to put this computer stuff in the proper perspective.

    No, the toilet paper is kept next to the Windows 10 computer.

    At the resale shop people donated a lot of those $300 PCs that had a 12 month warranty. They would say at 13 months the unit would not power up. We couldn't make them power up either. So spend another $300 to get another piece of crap that lasts a year. Cheap crap that comes with Windows 10, double crap. However, someone donated a Dell Latitude laptop of the $2,000 vintage. The software, Windows 10 just quit working, so they got rid of the PC. That was a great piece of hardware that I bought for $40. Put an SSD in it and now it is the Windows 7 Pro work station here. Not all Windows products are crap. But I suppose that you can buy a $2,000 PC for $40 in a resale shop there, too. But the iMac is still the work horse computer with both Microsoft and Apple software running on it. And with no design software used at all.

    Interesting cost comparisons. The iPhone 7 Plus with maximum sized storage had a retail price of about US$1,200 versus a refrigerator with freezer that cost about US$1,800. I expect the iPhone to last for more than 5 years technology and software wise. I saved for more than 2 years to get the money to buy it and also got a discount at the Apple store which helped. Wages are a little different in Arizona. I have a job as a custodian (Fancy name for janitor.) now and make US$2 per hour more than what I was paid as a computer technician at a public school here. Also, I can walk to work now and don't have to drive 40 to 60 miles just to get to work. Glad to have a job. Seven years ago I had saved up and bought a maxed out 27 inch iMac. The technology in that iMac is still beyond most of the computers on sale at retail stores here today. And the iMac runs Apple, Windows and Unix software and applications. Stopped buying cheap new computers because they cost too much in the long run. So, yes, a higher priced Apple is a much better buy than a cheap computer that comes with Windows 10.

    Maybe it's just this area. There's an Apple store within 4 miles from here. Also, there is a SunMacs Apple club even closer. A lot of people have abandoned laptops and desktops and went to iPads. Most people around here don't go to unix because of the learning curve. A lot of people here like iPhones and iPads because of the ease of using Facetime. Yes, people do go to Costco to buy the low priced laptops that have Windows 10 on them. But then they hit the learning curve again. But it's the updates that are the zinger. Past experience has seen too many PCs have been left unusable trying to update. Then, it's, "Hello Apple. What have you got for me?" Maybe it's just an Arizona thing?

    Do you realize how many people will switch to Apple products when they try to get their PCs to cleanly update? A comparison of an Apple MacBook running Windows 10 to a Dell laptop running Windows 10 both about 10 years old and both running Insider 17760.1. The comparison time factor for update to 17763.1: The MacBook completed the update in 1 and 1/2 hours; the Dell laptop completed the update in about 15 hours. That put a smile on my face. It is fun when I smile. So yes, fun! [An that's no crap.]

    Some new crap to think about: Several friends have Windows 10 PCs that they ask me to look at. The PCs are of the 17134.285 released Windows 10 version. However, there is a new Windows 10 release coming out soon so I'm starting to prepare for "some new crap." Just allowed the MacBook to update from 17134.285 32 bit released version to 17760.1 32 bit Insider version that is in the area of what will be the new released version coming sometime in the near future. I kept the MacBook on the old released version so I could better understand the problems of normal end users. Now it's time to prepare for some new crap. Let the fun begin.

    Crap: With all this "New" Windows 10 software a new question came to mind. How do you "Hide" an update that you don't want installed? Can you even delete an update before it installs? I seem to be missing crap control for updates. Maybe there is none? Maybe it can be removed from a download file somewhere? Just sorting through the crap. 75 degrees this morning in Phoenix, I think it's Winter arriving early.

    Looking forward to some new crap in October. At OS Build 17751.1 and slowly moving closer. The old Dell laptop took about 20 hours to finally digest the Update and complete to that Insider release. The update completed for other people in an hour and a half. Sometimes I just don't understand computers and the software.

    Because of "Dumb Luck", I've turned off OneDrive on the Windows test PCs. After reading the article jaclaz identified, I'm very glad. Talk about CRAP, this is right up at the top of the pile. Thanks for the information.

    Everything??? 5 browers running, 1 is Apple. Ghostery extention running, not Apple. Acrobat Reader running, not Apple. Malwarebytes running, not Apple. Stuffit Expander running, not Apple. Garmin Express running, not Apple. Microsoft Office running, not Apple but made for Apple. And the beat goes on, not Crap, just Apple. And Windows 10 Pro is running on an Apple computer, not Apple but Apple still runs it.
