Gosh darn if Microsoft didn't make me do it again!


Don't feel like much of an Insider really....wish you'd use the Windows 10 intro screen background, giving a changelog written in appropriate technological difficulty (somewhere between the style of MSDN and microsoftstore.com (leaning heavily towards MSDN)...

I've not bothered doing real investigative work for any of the upgrades, and the only things I've really noticed is the disappearance of settings in a lot of software, resetting either completely or fully to a first install. Do that to MS-software (of course), but why reset third party software? If it's compatibility or even security you're worried about, I can't see what settings could ever make a privileged, installed program gain any "superpowers" or accidently slip into a hole in the ground or whatnot. If an application from a third party crashes, that is not yours or my responsibility.

I feel bad for not at least giving a score of 2, for the effort and to reward giving me the opportunity to partake, but I feel I've gained nothing in return for (potentially) destabilizing my main computer (that's on me of course).

The appearance and still existent presence of Apps is already beyond what I can handle (you should have let the tablets and phones lead the way, then integrating when appropriate, not presenting a mentally retarded version of bundled software (calculator, voice recorder...*ehm* sorry to remind you of the Skype debacle, but I should ground this rant in at least one bit of verifiable information....not that I expect any influence at all, giving solicited opinion on something that doesn't really affect my life is wonderfully liberating and a good way to practise my English writing proficiency, not to mention giving me something to post on my blog! :-)

You know what? I just talked myself into realizing this makes my satisfaction a 2 of 5, wonderful!

Keep up the adequate work! ;-)
