Vista 10 and Other Spyware Not a Choice But Imperative for People Who Stay With Windows

"There won't be anything we won't say to people to try and convince them that our way is the way to go." --Bill Gates

Summary: Microsoft is pushing hard against choice and pressuring OEMs to stop providing people with anything other than the world's worst spyware, namely Vista 10, which people increasingly reject and actively try to dodge

SPEAKING with sources inside Microsoft, I recently found out that Windows will only get worse in terms of spying, not better. This may not be so surprising, but having it confirmed by people who work on the software sure helps as it reminds people to get out of Windows. The sooner, the better.



Microsoft is now announcing the end of OEM sales of Vista 7 because the only remaining choice for Windows prisoners will be spyware called Vista 10, no matter whether they can accept the EULA or not. As The Register put it today, "Microsoft's herding users towards Windows 10, and is unafraid to crack the whip along the way."

"Two days ago I found out that someone senior at Microsoft had contacted my employer and tried to get me fired, or something along those lines."As we wrote earlier today, Microsoft will also force (or aggressively push) existing users of Vista 7 to 'upgrade'. Coming from an evil company like Microsoft, nobody should be surprised. As one person put it in Soylent News (where we've just reached the front page), "everything we know about Windows 10 suggests they're as evil as ever" (if not worse).

Two days ago I found out that someone senior at Microsoft had contacted my employer and tried to get me fired, or something along those lines.

Microsoft is a very evil company. Avoid it not just because of the spying, the proprietary code with back doors, the high price and so on. As Netscape's Chairman once put it, “Microsoft is, I think, fundamentally an evil company.”
