Microsoft is ending support for Internet Explorer 8, 9, and 10 next week on January 12th 2016,…
Microsoft is stealing your Internet Service Providers (ISP) bandwidth!
Windows 10’s New Feature Steals Your Internet Bandwidth. It’s a devious little feature called Windows Update Delivery Optimization. It’s enabled by default.
If you’re running Windows 10, you may want to terminate this travesty.
The settings you need are buried down in:
START->Settings->Update & Security->Windows Update->Advanced options, under: Choose how updates are delivered.
Genius may have its limitations, but stupidity is not thus handicapped.
I’m currently testing the new Microsoft Operating System (OS) Windows 10._GMS
Creating a “PC User Account” (PCUA) in Windows 10 is the same as creating an account in Windows 8. So if your already running a Windows 8 machine and are happy with the creation process, then you don’t need to be reading this post.
You can no longer create a PCUA from the “Control Panel” (see image_01).
The underlying problem with this procedure is that when you create your PCUA your creating a
Microsoft account as well as a “One Drive Account” (ODA).
You get 50GB of free file storage with your ODA.
I fail to understand the meaning of this, what if I don’t want a One Drive account, as of now, there
is no other choice. I was unable to create a PCUA (local account) without creating a ODA.
And believe you me, I tried.
Is Microsoft once again, capitalizing on the market?
There was nothing wrong with creating a PCUA the way we used to, Microsoft could simply add the option to create a PCUA locally or both at the same time.
Every time I log on to Windows 10 TP, it is as if the operating system (OS) is loading from the cloud.
I’m aware this is not happening, -but- if I was to tell you I have seen the future of how people use computers, this is what I would and am predicted.
There, I said it, “The future of using a PC will load the OS from the cloud onto your system”.
Computer Console –if you will-
Perhaps this process of creating PCUA is ok with some of this generation and the next generation to come. I for one, and I know of others this isn’t what we want.
All screenshots and task were done using the evaluation copy of Windows 10 Technical Preview.
This post is referring to the desktop version of the OS.
Please keep in mind Windows 10 Final Release isn’t until late 2015.
Many changes will occur from now to then.
However, I must say with some assurance, Microsoft will not change how you create a PCUA.
If they do, I will print this post, and eat it.

Microsoft totally surprise’s the tech community by skipping of Windows version 9 from 8 to 10.
From what I can tell thus far, Windows 10 is an improvement from version 8.
