    Sorry, but I was actually referring to a post by Kari above - I in no way 'dragged' Linux into the discussion. I was responding to the broader point of Wynona's post, as anyone can see. A point about freedom of choices, a context in which a mention of Linux is totally apposite.

    My point was simply that MS is not obligated to do anything. You do not have a choice once MS decides what they want to do. En masse, feedback might get them to yield on this point or that, but they have their own corporate plan.

    Linux is quite relevant in this discussion as it offers a viable alternative to those users unhappy with what Windows today is or what it is becoming.

    Further, factual and matter-of-fact feedback to Microsoft and somewhat aggressive posts about "I do not need / like this feature, therefore it should not be present!" are two very different things.
    It is realy that old argument... If you don't like it here, go elsewhere...

    Fact, that we all use Windows 10, are Insiders and to our best cpabilities contribute to its development, shuold be enough, to not offend any user with proposition like this. We all know and use Linux at some level.

    It is MS's strategy and method to encourage users to give feedback. They said it multiple times and they listen to Insiders.

    Simple as that.

    Just for the record, I do not use Linux in any form, and am happy enough with Windows 10 that I'm not going to change. If I made anyone think I'm unhappy with Windows 10, "sorry 'bout dat"! Which doesn't preclude my having my say about choices.

    'Nuff said.

    And now you are inviting me to go elsewhere? I have been an Insider since day one back in October 2014, tested every build, giving my feedback, etc. I use this platform daily and want to help it improve. I just stated some facts, so come off it. I use Linux, too. Many Windows users do - get over it.

    I have offended users? Do we need trigger warnings now? Do you have some right to not be offended? You are offending me :-)

    C'mon Andre, you really seem to be missing the point. There is no 'argument' whatsoever. Just making an observation. I do not need the though police telling me what is appropriate. Simple as that. (nice try at a thought-stopper - my favorite is 'period').

    Do you mean that for instance now when Microsoft decided to replace Paint with Paint 3D, we should not tell about alternatives? Not mention where and how to get old Paint, or Paint.Net or Gimp?

    That posting about alternatives for those unhappy with an app, service or OS is somehow wrong? Or do you want to limit that, telling about alternatives to just apps?

    Exactly. That has been and will be my point, all the time: use the Feedback app to tell Microsoft about what you do not like and why. In conversation here tell about it sober and business-like, remembering that "I do not like this therefore it must be removed!" is not a good argument to request something to be removed that other users might like.

    Sory for misunderstanding. Wanted to point out, that you were making such offer to others... I would never deny others to make their point.

    Sory again, if my poor English caused misunderstanding..

    Probably my poor English, too, and I've been speaking it for over 60 years :-) No worries

    Kari, I was the first to point that solution for changing Paint to old one.

    And "things must be this way" isn't part of my vocabulary.

    No, no, no . . . Andre's saying that's the argument we are hearing . . . he's not in any way advocating that anyone leave!

    As I said to Andre above... as a native English speaker for over 60 years, I am still quite capable of missing the point Whoosh! Right over my head...
