There is also the small matter of Microsoft's logging and spyware built into W10. Not really a good idea to let some corporation know everything that your law enforcement does.

Last tuesday Microsoft confirmed the suppress of beetween 3 000 and 5 000 posts all around the world.
Actually there are about 121 000 Microsoft employees all around the world.

Those about to be terminated are essentially commercials (perhaps they did not sell enough W10 ?).

Alas Satya Nadella remains in place.

In a sane world, that would, of course, be the logical solution. Alas, the U.K. government is still enamoured by the concept of "austerity", which basically means the police, health service, defence systems etc. will have to whistle if they think they'll get up to date hardware, let alone software.
If that continues to be the case, I still cannot see why no-one has suggested installing Linux on the existing hardware.

The U.K. Government is not the only one.

A year ago, I saw a private health service with machines under Windows 97.
It annoyed me very much, more so because I was personnally concerned, having a relative in this place.

Sorry for nagging, but do the latest posts still comply with the topic of this thread (Windows 10)?
When I notice new posts in this thread I wouldn't expect discussions about possible threats by using outdated versions wheresoever. That's a topic of its own IMHO.

I still hope they will be back soon once the server migration has been completed.
