    If it wasn´t for gaming, i think i would have switched to Linux a few years ago... Unless Linux alternatives are really bad...

    Windows 10 is actually pretty good and the best user friendly Windows version by a significant margin. It ain't perfect, but neither is iOS, Linux or anything else for that matter.

    Refresh is actually already a thing in the safe boot options afaik.

    Its under advanced tools or something.

    What I meant is that you won't have Pages and some other build in apps on newer ipads if you switch account, in case you sell it or another users gets it but without linking it to your cloud.
    Hence why Apple also has those default apps in their shop.

    most have no choice, very lil know how to use linux or or iOS or what ever apple calls it these days.

    And many companies dont want to pay to train people on different OS.

    MS OS is used by 90% world.

    If i had the will power to want to switch to diffrent OS I would moved to linux by now and if game wouldnt be issue

    I use Acronis True Image 2015 for that so i can decide what to do. It's scheduled to make a backup every friday.

    Also because i use NOD32, Windows Defender is automaticly disabled.

    So...you hate the best?

    You know, there's this restaurant down the road with the best mac & cheese i have ever had. But hey, since we hate things that are the best, i must hate it! I hate that mac & cheese because it's not...!!...wait, what is it not? it's the best i have ever had, what can i hate about it if it's the best i've ever had? Hmmm....

    People who complain about something they use because there is no better alternative have a couple options.

    1. Do your best within the means possible to try and get the OS's developer to change or add something

    2. Make your own OS.

    Notice how complaining isn't an option there?

    Sounds like an easy way to remove all the bloatware from a pre-built...could come in handy.

    It started from that Microsoft was jealous of Apple os reputation, appearance, apple store and multidevice connecion, etc etc
    They started with previous windows and slowly forcing changes and there is no alternative, old users do not like or want it.

    Before Windows was platform for programs, now is apple-like service (cause even Microsoft in license say it is now service, not OS)

    You've never gotten a new computer full of bloat? This can remove all that with one click. WTF is wrong with some people.
