Windows 11? Why???
« on: June 30, 2021, 2202 UTC »
So, it's supposed to be like Mac OS? Mac OS sucks now. At least, I think it does. https://www.cnet.com/news/windows-11-release-date-this-is-when-you-can-install-microsofts-free-update/
I was asked, yet another weird question, of how I would like to be buried, when I finally bite the big one. The answer was actually pretty easy. Face-down, like a certain historical figure in the late 1980's, (I will not mention who, but some of you will get it, and that's enough.) Why??? It would be a buial that will satify everyone: (1) My enemies will say that it will show me where to go. (2) On the same point, I can have my enemies kiss my butt. (3) It will temporarily give someone a place to park a bicycle. See??? A WIN / WIN for everyone.

Because the good folks at Micro$oft have run out of creativity. Look at the Edge browser. It is Google Chrome with a Microsoft skin & Microsoft services / telemetry. A leaked copy of Windows 11 was released a couple of weeks ago. Personally, I was content with Windows XP and still running a mix of Windows XP and 7.

I gave up on MS years ago.  I've been running Linux in some flavor for over a decade.  Its free, and has it quirks, but does what I need.  Did I mention its free?  ;D
