Nothing like a migraine in the middle of the night....
Any particular reason for going "back" to Win7?If you want to discuss headaches, I've spent the last 2.5 days reworking my desktop configuration.
- Reinstalled Win 7 (x64) - turns out MotherF-M$FT will never allow you to license, revert or otherwise register an Enterprise installation. I had a tricked-out configuration with all the STIGs applied but NO! So I had a license of "Pro".
And Loz thought *I* was paranoid! (we had a convo about Win10 in the Community forum OTT recently).I never "left"! I can't be bothered to set up VM's exclusively for gaming.
Obviously I use Ubuntu for everything, but you know how paranoid I am. Do you really think I'd go with Win 8 or 10?
Just because you're paranoid... doesn't mean Bill Gates isn't sniffing your underwear.And Loz thought *I* was paranoid! (we had a convo about Win10 in the Community forum OTT recently).
My understanding is that Win10 stealth-enabled a lot of their feces with a recent "build", & will continue to do so. If you have that whore Cortana on your taskbar, she's sending Redmond everything you do even if you've stuck a cork in her.I have a dual-boot Ubuntu/Win10 set-up myself. Win7 has many of the same telemetry "features" as 10 does... in case you didn't know. Fortunately, with a little elbow grease, it can all be blocked.
Which is why I was so ticked off. Well, that plus 3 days worth of labor, because Windows doesn't like to play nice with GRUB.It's a shame you got screwed out of the Ent. license. It's a lot easier to gank the telemetry malware with that version.
