Thanks, but no thanks, I don't need that wench spying on me.
It's supposed to be part of the ease of access, that incidentally works fine on 10 ( I upgraded the laptop, cos the kid said 'it's awesome'. The only time the boy stirred me wrong)
And no, the calculator is done gone....searched every which way, forward and backward.....
I do not like auto updates. There has never been a 'free' thing from Microsoft!
I am really starting to consider it....
But I am mainstream, I am weary of all the stuff I do use being tied to Windows.
(and I hate it that stuff, supposed to be in 7 AND 10 suddenly being gone.)
Thanks.Windows 10 is fairly stable as compared to Windows 8. However many at enterprise level are staying with Win 7.
The free download install is not the same every time, things mess up
Compatibility with existing apps
User inconvenience (There is a learning curve between Win7 and Win 10)
Also: Microsoft is pushing "The Cloud" and it is not something many enterprise level groups trust. I know I don't. You never know who is in the Cloud with you and ownership of files in the Cloud can be an issue, depending on where (Which Country) the Cloud actually is. In a meeting about security with Microsoft they spent 30 minutes showing slides of jhigh fences, barbed wire, guards with dogs and locked door, but never answered one single question related to Cybersecurity
As for Linux, it is more stable and the newer, more enterprise, versions have a rathe nice GUI that previous versions did not have. But I am talking about versions I have experience with like Red Hat (Which is not free) and CentOS (Which is free) and is pretty much Red Hat.
Also, if you are a MAC user, you should know that OSX is pretty much a LINUX based system these days
