@Sir_Boops Dismissed him long enough till I realized that he was in fact right the whole time.

@Sir_Boops where's the lie though, windows 10 is basically malware

:trash: harasses you with update popups
:trash: has ads on the lock screen
:trash: includes Candy Crush and other such garbage

But it's missing an essential characteristic of malware. Quiet backups.

@dyske ah, but it does silently send file metadata, search history, and other private info to microsoft in the background by default. you can try to disable the "calling home" but updates will constantly fuck with your settings. so yeah, it's definitely malware.
