I'm sorry, but "reduces revenue inequalities" sounds like hippy speak for "they didn't bother getting educated or learning a skill, but they make as much as your skilled position does."

So we are up in arms because people have to launch Firefox from an icon and select the make it my default button. Really? I have had zero problems getting Windows 10 to let me change out anything. Be it my browser, or my media player. It really doesn't care. Like other versions of Windows in the past, people needed something to bitch about. And if this ends up being the big whoop de do, then that works for me.

Lenovo is now using rootkit-like techniques to install their software on CLEAN Windows installs, by having the BIOS overwrite windows system files on bootup submitted by PM_ME_WHAT_YOU_WANT to technology

From what I have read, they didn't. They just disabled it, and removed it from future products. That said, I wouldn't blame lenovo nearly as much as Microsoft. Because uefi and secure boot in particular were supposed to prevent low-level system changes, not introduce more that windows would run by default.

How? He is asking if the camera man is one of these nutjob "I KNOW MY RIGHTS" people that really don't understand their rights. They are nuts. Many of them start fights for the sake of doing so, and then get upset when they are rightfully beat down.

That is not victim blaming. That is common sense.
