I’m ready to move on completely from this evil husk of company. The Windows 11 disaster and Edgegate have finally convinced me. Not only is Microsoft just as unethical (if not worse) as they were in the 90s, today their products have become nothing more than second-rate ad delivery vehicles. I’ve used Windows for most of my life, including putting up with Windows 10‘s backsliding, but enough is enough. There are other options out there, and I will be sure to take them in the future. Office and the rest of Microsoft’s services are also more than replaceable as well, and I plan to do exactly that.
Paul, I also think you have a responsibility to go beyond just speaking out and lead more concrete action against Microsoft’s disgraceful behavior. It’s easy to say not to use Edge, but the right thing to do is to commit to moving away from all Microsoft products, including and especially Windows, as much as possible. From reading the comments here, it’s obvious that many other readers of this site have had enough of Microsoft’s BS and would like to dump them for good. Now that Windows has become so unbearable, we would be very supportive of you doing this. You have a massive audience and good reputation, so using, evaluating and recommending alternatives to Windows and other MS products would make an impact for sure.
