[Question] Will there be a mass migration from Windows to Linux ? submitted by fuckthisshitagain to technology

Wonderboy 52 points 258 points (+310|-52) ago

I really don't think so. Most of the things people are getting upset over are, to be perfectly honest, blown out of proportion.

From a different thread:

•The P2P is **ONLY **to share updates via your OWN NETWORK.

•Telemetry - this is nothing new, Microsoft has collected logs and crash data from their OSes and Software for years. Even Apple does it with OSX. But if you are that paranoid download NTLite and remove Asimov.

•Real-Time Protection is there for a reason, to protect people. You can turn it off for varying intervals but yes it turns back on automatically to keep you protected. If you install a 3rd Party Antivirus like Trend Micro, Avast, etc. Windows 10 automatically disables Windows Defender.

•Cortana is a Web-Based service. The volume of data needed to make it work properly would not fit on most computers. But if you are that paranoid you can turn Cortana and Web Search off. On the taskbar click on the Magnifier icon, then click the Sandwich Icon top left, then click settings and turn Cortana and Web Search off. Then right click an empty space on the taskbar, click search and then hidden.

•Content-Suggestions - Yes the ads are there, but you can go to Settings>Privacy>Manage my Microsoft advertising and other personalization info - This will open a webpage in your default browser. Once signed in you can turn off Browser-Ads (from Microsoft), and OS ads (from Microsoft)

•WiFi Sense - This is really easy to turn off, go to Settings>Network & Internet>Manage Wi-Fi Settings and turn off "Connect to networks shared by my contacts

•Automatic Updates (Forced Updates) - these can easily be turned off as well - go to Settings>Network & Internet> Advanced Options and turn on "Set as metered connection". This will have to be done for every network you connect to so don't forget.

Edit: There's a lot of talk about MS "keylogging" everything we type. That's just not true as there is no evidence of any key logger in the files (they're pretty easy to spot seen as every antivirus is has heuristics designed to spot these things). What it does do though is use phrases and words you type into things such as Cortana or your browser and feed them back to MS to improve autocomplete and the relevance of Cortana answers. This is also the same as what Google and Apple do with their products. You can also opt out of sending feedback to MS by going 'settings > privacy > feedback & diagnostics'.

I get that everyone has their backs up about CISA and an Orwellian society but lets take things based on evidence rather than drawing conclusions from speculation and possibly even the desire to make companies seem as evil as possible at the moment.

[ELI18] Whats the difference between matter, anti-matter and dark matter, and energy and dark energy submitted by MasterMale to science

Ordinary Matter

Made up of subatomic particles (usually a positive nucleus of protons and neutrons surrounded by a negative cloud of electrons), they interact with gravity and light. We can see them and feel their effects.


Made up of subatomic particles which are of the opposite charges to those in ordinary matter, (usually a negative nucleus of antiprotons and antineutrons surrounded by a positive cloud of positrons). They [are believed] to interact with gravity and light in the same way matter does. When an atom of matter and antimatter come into contact, they are both annihilated, releasing photons and perhaps neutrinos as well.

Dark Matter

This is believed to be made up of as yet undiscovered particles, such as the proposed axion particle or some other weakly interacting massive particle (WIMP). There is evidence it is not made up of ordinary matter (baryonic particles such as protons/neutrons), however we don't have conclusive evidence for more than that. Dark matter interacts with gravity, we can see its effects however fails to interact with electromagnetic radiation to a degree we can detect. This means we cannot see it, at least with our current technology.

Exactly, averaged out its about 11,000 requests per second, this is what brought the site down, not 60 per second as OP suggests.

[Question] Will there be a mass migration from Windows to Linux ? submitted by fuckthisshitagain to technology

If you choose to use another antivirus (even free) the real-time protection is disabled. It's only there if you have nothing protecting you at all, in which case I can't understand your objection to a base level of protection higher than 0.

Lab testing shows 99-100% effectiveness against an industry average of 98%. I'll take that any day over not wearing a condom at all.
