Windows 10 is Malware!

I tried to post the following to C/Net's glowing review of Windows 10:


I upgraded from Windows 7 and soon came to regret it. I tried to revert back and got an error message informing me that Windows couldn't find the back up it supposedly created before installing the new OS. I have a 2011 laptop, and there is absolutely no reason why I'd want all the Windows 10 gobbledygook cluttering up my screen. This new OS gives me nothing I wanted or needed, and I wish to high heaven that I had ignored the persistent invitations to "upgrade."

Worst of all, Windows 10 took away some functionality that I used on a daily basis. Specifically, the ability to right-click on a file and select "move to" or "copy to." Now I have to open a destination window and drag and drop the file to the desired location. WTF?

I guess that's not the absolute worst thing about Windows 10. The worst thing is that the Start button stops working and forces me to reboot a couple of times a day. This "upgrade" has cost me many hours of lost productivity and caused enormous aggravation. I cannot, for the life me, understand how anyone could consider this an improvement. Your smiley face reviews are luring people into needless misery.

Minecraft won't run since I switched to Windows 10, but maybe that's for the best.

You should know by now never to believe anything Microsoft says. I learned my lesson with the DOS 4 debacle.

Remember that? First, wipe your OS. Now insert the pre-formatted startup disk THAT WE NEVER TOLD YOU TO MAKE BEFORE WE INSTRUCTED YOU TO WIPE YOUR OS!!

I'm sticking with 7.

Sorry you had to endure this.  My rule for windows is... Well it's actually to install Linux on it ASAP.  However, where that's not possible, I've decided that the version that comes on the computer stays on that computer until the bitter end.
