unauthorised hardware peripheral devices
Microsoft: fuck you. With a stick of dynamite. The peripherals I cannect to ***MY*** computer are authorized by ***ME***. Only me. Not you. Go peddle this shit to Adolf Hitler and Josef Stalin and Mao Tse-Tung.

Why not just call a spade a spade? By buying a WindowsPC you are essentially acquiring a rental, in which you bear all the costs as well as all the legal exposure, while Microsoft allows you to do what they would like you to do (pay monthly for subscriptions to their different cloud offerings) and not much more.

You might like to think it's your computer. And in some ways it is. But in an increasingly list of ways, it is not.

Uhhh...because before Windows 10 this was not true? XP/Vista/7, hell even 8 and 8.1 once you stripped out the crapstore are simply OSes that the user is in full control of, this is NOT true of Windows 10. With Windows 10 what you get is a Chromebook that runs programs natively, that is all, all the words you type, everything you do, is sent back to corporate just like with a Chromebook it only PRETENDS that its a non thinclient when in reality it sends all the data back just like any other thin client.

I have to give MSFT credit for one thing....Windows 10 has actually caused me to recommend Windows 8 because you can pick up a copy of Win 8 for around $60 USD and with the crapstore removed and Classic Shell its merely Win 7 with a worse control panel.
