    IMHO -

    Microsoft has to stop pushing bloat/new features and make this OS rock-solid and easy to use.
    It's been far too long with the wrong strategy.

    Enough said.

    Maybe they want you to 3D print your backups. Who knows what they're up to these days.
    Ummmm .... you might be right.
    And that's scary!

    MS is an entirely benevolent institution - it wishes to keep an increasing number of IT admins in ever more lucrative jobs by creating a state of perpetual and ever-increasing panic.

    MS do create opportunities because of the underlying hardware tech and of course their OS. Of course there are other OS alternatives but love it or hate it Windows is most people know about.

    I could do my job on Linux as its entirely browser based but I prefer Windows.

    Linux also has its, the good, the bad, and the ugly side. I'm not picking sides, just saying it isn't all roses there either. I have more Linux computers here at home but thats only because my Raspberry Pi's outnumber my Windows PC's.
    My daily user is Windows. Web browsing forums etc. My Raspberry Pi's get used for things not really suited to a Windows PC. A lot of my Pi projects run headless and unattended once all setup. Good or bad the OS on my Pi's, Raspbian, only gets updated when I manually chose to do it. They never auto update on their own. I'm fine with that though.

    Which distro is entirely browser based? I have used over 60 different Linux distros (I now only have 3 on my desktop) and only a very few are browser based. If you really want a browser based Linux distro there are a couple but 98% are desktop based.

    I think he meant his job is done entirely from a browser. Thats how I read it.

    Indeed, I never implied any distro was browser based.

    That's pretty much what I see on my clients' PCs/laptops as well and still don't know why the Windows folder size fluctuate in size.

    If your Windows directory is >20GB you really have got a problem and should open a separate thread about it.
    The only maintenance I do on my PCs is to run Disk Clean Up occasionally to clean up system files, in particular the update backups. I see 18GB as a typical Windows folder on all my PCs, Windows 7 or 10. They are all standard full installs.

    This last one started off with Win7, took the free upgrade to 10 and has been upgraded through each version of 10 as it was released.

    Hi there
    I think some of the old Chrome Netbooks were essentially browser based -- I suppose you can call variants of Android as Linux derivatives -- however most sysadmins or I.T people that I've dealt with seem to spend a lot of time with the CLI / Scripts etc rather than using the GUI in the first place unless repairing some users PC.

    Cheers
