    I have been, I am, and I will remain a Microsoft fanboy in general and Windows 10 fanboy in particular. I am quite proud about being a Windows Insider and trough my feedback will continue to do my part in making Windows 10 better. I would have liked to remain as a Windows Insider MVP but as the manager of the program has made up her mind, it is already now clear that my MVP will not be renewed next July (I was awarded WIMVP 1st of July, it's always for one year).

    Turning that Marx brothers quote around, I would have liked to remain as a member just because it seemed they were accepting members like me: loving Windows 10, loving to be an Insider, yet willing to give honest feedback also when it was negative.

    I agree wholeheartedly.

    As I have no chance of going to Insider Heaven, I am happy to express my VERY low opinion of the current leadership and their ridiculously childish image e.g.

    Ninja cats
    Hustle as a Service
    Deets

    Hell when did term flight come to mean build?

    Really mature leaders would accept criticism and strive to improve.

    Care to share some deets?
    Insider Prison = advanced builds of Windows 3.1 and 3.1.1, both served cold with stale bread.
    At 4PM everyday you face Redmond and pray to Insider Boss in your native language.
    You Feedback Hub is connected to your ex-wife/husband's attorney
    You are allowed to use Edge only after passing a "patience" test and providing documentation of proper medication from your doctor.
    You get daily emails asking to contribute to the Ninja Cat fund of North America
    You are forced to eat Tacos for dinner every day.

    24c, I was just teasing you with "deets". Now, you've scared a *** out of me....

    In my honest opinion all my criticism has always been constructive, about clear errors or what I think is wrong. I openly admit that when for instance I get no reply / answer, my follow up tweets / posts might have been more impolite showing my growing impatience.
    Yes, your criticism is always constructive. You always lay the facts out. Not everyone can take having their mistakes pointed out. :)

    The "deal breaker" in my case was a tweet when a few users in my neighbourhood had told me that Microsoft itself does not recommend upgrading from Anniversary Update to Creators Update, using the page that is shown when you click a Feedback Hub link as proof that Microsoft wants you to stay in Anniversary Update:
    So far, this is the only Microsoft thing I can find about updating from Anniversary to Creators. I'm sure there are more articles out there.

    This link lets you go to your computer manufacturer's site to check whether it will take Creators Update or not. I'm wondering whether your neighbors were giving you erroneous info?

    I think it stands for "details" but I am not a native English speaker.
    Right, Joanne, but it's still butchering the English Language! :)

    I agree fully with you and yesterday was the icing on the cake. I am done with the insider program, all i get are Green Screens anyway. I will stay with the CU.

    Whoops, Andre, I saw that, but because "loosing" is so much used instead of the proper "losing", I just went right over it.
    Lose

    Lose can only be used as a verb. It describes when you “come to be without something” (e.g. “to lose a sock in the laundry”) or “to suffer defeat or fail to win” (e.g. “to lose a soccer game”). Its spelling might make you think it rhymes with hose and chose, but it actually rhymes with choose and shoes. The S has a Z sound.
    Loose

    Loose rhymes with goose and moose, and is almost always used as an adjective. It can mean “free from restraints or binds” (e.g. “The dog runs loose in the yard”), “not bound together” (e.g. “She let her hair hang loose”), or “not fitting closely or tightly” (e.g. “The shirt was loose on me, so I bought the next size down”). It can also refer to something that isn’t very strict, or something that’s relaxed or limber.


    Then there's the old fashioned use of loose as a verb that still shows up in today's English. Sometimes you may see loose being used to mean “to release” or “to set free.” For example, instead of proclaiming “Release the kraken!” when you want to set a sea monster on your enemies, you could say “Loose the kraken!” However, this is generally considered an outdated use of the word.

    Which is what you did in this instance; "potential for loosing (setting free) 10 minutes to check what it means". :)
