Any and all issues I have with Windows 10 will be posted on this blog from now on (so, regularly).

Issues present in Windows 10:
- The OS talks to you like you're 5 years old
- The endless spying and privacy breaches
- Generally getting harassed by notifications
- Which random control panel item will they attempt to merge with the Settings "app" this season?
- Control panel hidden so deeply that you're forced to use the settings app which is missing half the shit
- Start menu search doesn't find items in the start menu half the time
- Forced updating - 3GB update forced upon all users every 3 months full of features 99% of people didn't ask for
- Random apps occasionally install themselves out of the blue
- A Microsoft Edge ad pops up when you try to switch your default browser
- There were ads in This PC at one point - putting ads in a product that costs money is absolutely unacceptable
- Requires a supercomputer to run smoothly, struggles to run well on the low-end hardware it's often bundled with
- The same applies to Microsoft Edge where Chrome runs better on low-end hardware
- Can't access Windows 7 shared folders for some reason (maybe I'll figure this one out)
- Updates fail all the time
- Can't choose not to display the folders that appear in This PC
- You can hide them but they'll automatically re-expand if you go to one of them in the sidebar and then go back to This PC
- The decision to allow Windows Updates to download over metered connections
- "Something went wrong" errors with absolutely no fucking explanation
- When the "Something went wrong" error appears after a creators update fails to install for no reason and it downloads it all again
- The easiest way to solve this is just to reinstall from scratch
- Windows Defender's Real-time protection takes up way too many resources
- Turning off Real-time protection via psexec results in a "This setting is controlled by your system administrator" message, which seems to suggest that there are superadmin privileges beyond the ones that are activated by turning off LUA in the registry. Let me control my own computer holy fuck. Microsoft seems really obsessed with blocking experienced users from doing anything
- Windows 10 is just generally unprofessional and buggy

Issues present since Windows 8.1:
- Requires some random CPU instruction that no one's ever heard of, preventing it from running on some fully compliant PAE/NX CPUs
- Have to jump through hoops to change a network from public to private
- Ads in Start Menu by default

Issues present since Windows 8:
- Need to change a registry setting to actually become admin
- Two web browsers, two control panels, two media players, two photo viewers, two of fucking everything
- Still can't use the Y key to say Yes to deletions of hidden/system files
- Secure Boot needs to get lost

Issues present since Windows 7:
- Still no return of Inkball or the Aurora screensaver

Issues present since Windows Vista:
- Takes up 16GB for no reason
- Needs more than a Pentium II 233MHz processor to open This PC in 1 second
- Issues surrounding the entire UI being GPU rendered and V-synced

Issues present since Windows XP:
- Requires a Pentium-class processor

Issues present since Windows 2000
