The last Windows 10 update took out my printer.  My Linux boxes can still use it.

🙂 🙂 🙂 Happy thoughts make happy slaves 🙂 🙂 🙂

I postponed the update with "remind me later" only because there's no "go fuck yourself" menu option! 

If there was, I'd use it!

I think throwing it out the window red pill rage style is your best problem solving solution,  it’s called “windows update” for a reason.

The calculator is now full screen, covers up whatever app you were working on so you forget what numbers you were adding together. Stupid engineers. I found a win 7 calc app to use instead.

Linux is the Future.

Soon as Win7 gets turned off (at the end of this year?) I'm going full Linux Mint

Most HR departments use MS products. Do you any of you guys know a software workaround? So I can still send a résumé that can be opened by an HR thot. Yet not be bothered by MS being a producer of garbage now. Thanks in advance.

Smart move, Honda, I wish Honda or Toyota made computer programs! It would go fast, work all the time, predictable steering and handling, but no, We're stuck with Larda 7 and Renault 10!

C pig gave me the details of an opensource alternative to Microsoft word that works on Linux Mint that can save documents in word format.

I had the same concern.

I wrote it down somewhere, I think it is called Libre or something like that

Thank you, Evaluator, I just filed that address in my Libre Office (free program) recommended by C-Pig, I'm very happy with its familiar layout and intuitive navigation, way better than anything Microsoft wants us to rent.  Why live under a slumlord when there's acres of free land for the taking? 

This is my only office product on Win 10, slowly but surly I'm finding ways to navigate around their maze of lockstep confusion! It's like being stuck on a shared computer and the other person is anonymous and VINDICTIVE! 

My next box is gonna be Lynux! I like having all the controls in my hands and not subject to hijacking and ransom!

Whoever runs Microsoft now is treating their clientele like toddlers in a playpen. I don't have the time nor inclination to search for Microsoft program conflict solutions they they're not even willing to listen and come up with logical solutions, the only toddlers in this equation are Microsoft and its arrogant wayward minions. 

If Win 10 were a book, all the words and letters would be mixed up with some backwards and upside down (toddler writes book).     

If you hate your Microsoft Office slumlord rental space, you like this!: (thanks be to C-Pig)

P.S. Proton mail, also a great product free of charge (everything's encrypted and they offer reasonable priced VPN). (another thanks to the Pig)

Try Open Office, it's free and open source.  It will save in it's native formats, or you can save as (or import) microsoft formats.  Works great for me.  I use it on my Win8 crapbook.

I reverted from windows 10 too late and now it looks like this

Build.PNG

I can't get updates or install new software yet it still beats windows 10.

Learning Linux for my next box seems like the most logical step, dealing with microsoft is a headache, same as their products.

Latest win-10 update crippled my drag and drop abilities from libre-office program (app).

Microsoft windows started as a program to make program navigation from program to program simple through "windows" instead of DOS. Now they do the opposite, they cripple navigation and selection abilities. 

The future of Microsoft can be summed up in one picture:

🤔 As I am about to reconnect my PC to the Interwebs and it has Win10 I am aware that I might run into some trouble on this front.

 

(I happen to like my printer, for instance. See, it works just fine, prints absolutely no fancy colors, has not even a LED display, no button to press except the power toggle switch. Well, thing has a little green light to show you it has got access to power, it has a little orange light going on and off to show you it is hungry for paper. It may even have a little red light to show you it is about to explode, but I haven’t seen it yet.

The good old thing never gave me any headache or trouble and we are together now, for almost 20 years!)

 

On the other hand, it would be a blast to post pictures like MMB on TIM and finally throw this/my phone back into the bottomless pit it somehow crawled out of.

 

-I need a (attention: possible multi lingual confusion, ahead) ‘bone’ (this is how we silly Germans call an old cell-phone that has not much more uses than 1. telephone communication 2. storage of telephone numbers 3. a game called ‘snake’, where you are the snake and must avoid eating yourself, which in itself is highly rewarding to some).

-A basic anti virus to protect the blueprints of the interstellar starport’s defense systems and the Imperial Tracking Device Scanner from any unauthorized personnel or AI.

-Next, I thought of an easy and not so costly solution of a presumably relatively slow, prepaid Interwebs access, because what should I do with a fast and expensive one that costs me while I am busy at work or out in the countryside?

 

Sounds not too complicated, all in all, if you just leave out the Win10.

If you guys have any suggestions, please, just let me know. I will have to internet search anyway, so it would be great to know from the get go, what it is, I am searching for.

Cheers!
