    Windows-as-a-service fail: Microsoft keeps customers in the dark


    "If Microsoft wants to treat Windows 10 as a service, it has a responsibility to its customers to provide accurate information about problems with that service. Over the last month, the company has failed miserably in that regard."

    Greetings!

    IMHO, Windows As A Service is essentially DOA.
    I'll switch over to Linux if and when that day comes!

    Mini-rant complete.

    After all these years with Windows, sometimes I suspect voluntarily staying with it is a kind of fetish. Something like an addiction to problem solving or troubleshooting, albeit complaining about the life all the time.

    This reminds me of something I read comparing Android and iOS as houses you choose to live in. I don't remember the exact wordings, but it went like the iOS is a house that comes with everything built-in. Everything looks good and works, but you're forbidden to make changes. On the other hand, Android comes devoid of almost everything. You choose the things you want to put inside and make the necessary changes yourself. It more or less describes the kind of people who, in my impression, pick one over the other. Now, guess. Am I an Android or iOS person?

    I have much respect for Microsoft, but, if you've got paying customers, this ain't the way to do business!

    For me, Windows just works. It does everything I want it to do. No hassles, no fuss. I guess I'm just lucky.

    Works here as well, using the first upgrade to 1809. I suppose I'm just lucky enough to have ideal hardware for it.
