Lock-in works well for apple.  So they of course follow suit.

So it looks like "copilot" is the next thing M$ is going to force on Windoze users whether they want it or not.

It's already non-removable from their Edge browser, and they're working on making it non-removable from Windows 11.

This comes after a long line of such behavior, of course. Windows 98 + Internet Explorer, Windows 8 + the "Windows Phone" UI, Windows 10 + Cortana, etc. etc. etc.

So they're back to their bad old habits. Fuck you, Microsoft. Die in an AI fire.

Looks like that dickhead Altman is going to end up at Microsoft.  I figured either that or Musk would hire him.  Feathers of a color....

What id have preferred is no one would touch him, he would try again, and go bankrupt, and black listed from the industry.

Microsoft was pretty heavily invested in OpenAI/ChatGPT to begin with. It seemed inevitable that they would either have cross-linked leadership or there would be an outright acquisition.

They made it clear that their bigoted AI was going to become the next thing they forced on users throughout the operating system and other software. Ironically, the relief seems to be on its way from an unlikely source: the European Union.

They have to comply with the "Digital Markets Act". Coming soon, if you can convince Windows that you are in the European Economic Area, they have to allow you to uninstall Camera, Cortana, Web Search from Microsoft Bing, Microsoft Edge, and Photos. Furthermore, Microsoft's own bloatware has to be clearly labeled as "system apps".

I stopped using Edge recently because it's just too damn obnoxious with the other stuff it tries to force on you. I spent about a day and a half on Firefox before deciding that its inability to bypass TLS warnings was keeping me from accessing a bunch of internal web sites. Since our security department doesn't allow us to run Brave (since it has a Tor browser built in), I ended up going back to Chrome. Ugh.

Ya edge is worse than chrome for that stuff. But there is one issue we have that makes us stick with it at the office. My app, if you have large images embedded, Chrome freezes. Edge does not. its weird.  Same engine, I would think it would act the same.

I saw that too about the uninstall mandate, my first thought was yay, but after the initial glee, I suspect there will be 2 versions of windows. one for UK, where you can remove, one for US, where you cant.   They have had more than one regional version before so there is a precedent. 

( of course only reason i have windows is for work, where i cant do much with it, so its sort of academic to me personally. just was nice to see. )

Looking around it seems no, the base, have to use something like Brave, which you cant.

But ran across a script that does it in the background, could run int as a daily scheduled task or something im sure .   -> https://github.com/mkorthof/chrupd

So Bill, has over 100 patents on fake food, and is the leading investor in 'impossible foods'.  Thus his reason for buying up all the farm and supporting banning of meat.

I've read before that he is a big fan of eating meat. And like the ultra-scumbag he is, he's fine with he and the other elites having real meat while the rest of us eat processed bugs.

Once again ... Bill Gates is the single worst person ever to exist in the history of the universe.

While I'm no fan of Gates I think there are some people who were worse than him; the low-hanging fruit being Hitler, Stalin, Mao etc. But, for whatever reason, no one seems to talk about the Roman Emperor Nero. Seriously, read up on the things he did, he even killed his own mother. And the Apostle Paul. (Although that last one is according to "church tradition" rather than the Bible, so take it with a grain of salt)

Hitler had about six million victims.

Mao had between 30 and 45 million victims (but that's not a fair number because his regime is still in power and still killing people).

Stalin had at least six million victims.

Bill Gates has victims numbering in the BILLIONS. Some of them he killed (think vaccine deaths, especially the ones BEFORE the plandemic, particularly in Africa). Some experienced a fate FAR WORSE than death: they had to use Microsoft Windows.

Oh the inhumanity!

It always killed me that Windows didn't have one of my favorite small but near-indispensable features of most Linux window managers, namely the ability to move and resize windows by using the Alt key in combination with the mouse buttons. Today I found the Altdrag utility, and my life is immeasurably better. Highly recommended.

Something fun I found online: a mini comics in which there is a guy sitting in a corner, saying: "God, I hate myself so fuckig much!" Then another guy pops up and tells him "I will help you."

Next scene is both guys sitting in front of a computer with Microsoft Office on the screen. The first guy exclaims "Thank you! Now there is something I hate more than myself!"

Subject: still sucking after all these years

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I've been trying to be kinder to Microsoft in the latter days, since they're far more open standards friendly these days, their clown is better than Amazon's, and a lot of their stuff either runs on Linux or is friendly to *ix systems.  But the entire Windows ecosystem is still complete and utter garbage and deserves to be shredded in a wood chipper almost as much as Billy-boy himself.

I cannot get Visual Studio Code to start up on my ${work} computer anymore.  Every time I launch it, the entire computer locks up.  Browser windows freeze, filesystem access blocks, and eventually the network stops passing traffic.  Because of one application.  Dammit Microsoft, we knew how to do better than that 30 years ago!

And I don't care whether the problem is or is not VS Code.  The problem is that Windows is, after all these years, still a bullshit design of an operating system that should never have seen the light of day.
