Leaked NSA Malware Threatens Windows Users Around the World
https://theintercept.com/2017/04/14/leaked-nsa-malware-threatens-windows-users-around-the-world/


Quote:
The ShadowBrokers, an entity previously confirmed by The Intercept to have leaked authentic malware used by the NSA to attack computers around the world, today released another cache of what appears to be extremely potent (and previously unknown) software capable of breaking into systems running Windows. The software could give nearly anyone with sufficient technical knowledge the ability to wreak havoc on millions of Microsoft users.



good luck!

I am glad that I switched to Chrome OS & Linux about a year ago.

Good luck to Windows users.

Why not just use Linux and have an offline Windows machine for devices that need special drivers etc? I guess, other than you don't want to have 2 PCs/laptops of course, then forget what I said. Razz

That is exactly what I have been doing. Unfortunately, revolution can't force his/her clients to adopt such an approach.

Any major reason for choosing UNIX instead of Linux?

And therein lies the problem. We still cannot forgo Windows.

i don't think we have to forgo windows, use it if it fits the purpose, if it solves problems,

new tactics, always on telemetry, force adopt windows 10, force continuous upgrade, ads, share your network bandwidth, insane GB of download, if anyone is ok with that, feel free to use windows 10,

Well said.

The idea is that we should reduce our reliance/dependency on such a lousy OS. Use Linux as our workhorse OS but keep Windows for tasks that cannot be done on other platforms.

Windows 10 S is Microsoft’s new lightweight operating system. It’s meant to be cheaper and less processor intensive than Windows 10 Home or Pro, the versions of the OS found on most laptops and desktops today.

https://www.theverge.com/2017/5/2/15518752/windows-10s-operating-system-confusion
Immediately upon its introduction, Windows 10 S spans a price range from $189 to $2,199


get $189 1 unit and put linux on it, Laughing Laughing

Windows 10 S is the operating system that powers the Surface Laptop, and it’s designed to only run apps from the Windows Store, which means traditional desktop apps will need to be specially packaged to work with the Surface Laptop. If you want to use Chrome, you’ll have to wait for Google to list it in the Windows Store, or pay $49 to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro and unlock every desktop app.


seriously?

That might not be possible. You would have to check the UEFI and secure boot settings to make sure you can boot into another OS.

Forget about those silly M$ products. Buy an entry-level Chromebook and then install GalliumOS. In terms of bang for the buck, such a combination (ChromeOS & Linux) is unbeatable.

Those Chrome Books have only a small amount of local storage. And a weak CPU. Not really suitable for business purposes IMO. Plus the integrated, and special, battery is a big turn off for me. One of the things l change to most is the batteries, followed by the fans and HDDs.

It only has 64GB SSD. I have individual files larger than that. Plus the integrated battery. Weak CPU. I'm not considering it. Not fit for purpose.

I am afraid that you will be stuck with high-end Windows laptops & PCs for the rest of your career as a turnkey solution provider. Good luck!

Windows 10 S: Good, bad, and how this could get ugly for PC makers
https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/05/03/windows_10_s_surface/

Reminds me of Windows 8.1 with Bing:

What Exactly Is “Windows 8.1 with Bing”? Do I Have to Use Bing?
https://www.howtogeek.com/195934/what-exactly-is-windows-8.1-with-bing-do-i-have-to-use-bing/

At the end of the day, the "S" stands for "Stupid".
