I am confused as to how this is news?

Microsoft is pushing bloatware... that's nothing new.

Microsoft is using shady, difficult to mitigate tactics to push nonsense users don't want... that's nothing new.

Microsoft is using their mandatory, monthly roll-up updates to "hide" unwanted updates, so users can't "selectively" update their system... that's nothing new.

Users are considering moving away from Windows, due to the aforementioned points... that's nothing new.

At this point, articles like these are reminiscent of a teenage girl, who has an abusive boyfriend, continuously coming for "advice" as she bounces in-and-out of a violent relationship with that boyfriend... "Can you believe how bad he hit me?!?! He and I are done FOR GOOD!" Then, two days later, they're back together, and you repeat the cycle.

Micro$oft is terrible... we get it... how is this news?

This is exactly why so many Voaters simply mention Linux like a broken record in the comments of every article like this one. We become exhausted from trying to explain and explain and explain but nothing ever changes so we eventually just start do this.

It's good that some people move over to the Linux community because it pressures Microsoft to improve their products and services. And a small to moderate sized Linux community means less monopolizing standardization and more exploration & experimental optimization.

At the end of the day what matters is what you want out of a user experience.

You do you.
