You know what's a really good use case for SharePoint?

One of the projects I'm on apparently uses SharePoint. I don't, though.
Not if I can help it.

It was a sharepoint joke, must have been deleted from the Linux community.

Bought Orifice 2013 Home & Business for a client, without install medium. Wanted to download it, need a Microsoft Live Account. This is so stupid.

New computers are coming out of the box with a gun pointed at the user, threatening to kill all puppies and kittens in a 100 mile radius unless the user creates a Microsoft Live account. It's too bad that non-Windows laptops cost more than Windows laptops. I hated giving any amount of my hard-earned money to the Great Satan of Redmond. I booted up the new machine and once getting past the LOG IN TO MICROSOFT LIVE NOW, BITCH screens, found that 'doze 8.1 is TOTALLY FREAKING UNUSABLE.

And of course the machine came preloaded with so much crapware that I couldn't even turn off the virus checker, which insisted that the Debian installer for Windows is malware.

Until Microsoft cancels the Windows product entirely and exists solely as a software publisher for other platforms, Satya Nadella can die in a car fire.

You can create an account without a MS Live account, but it is so hidden, that it borders on illegality. You need to click "decline" or something two times and then there is an optiion. It is worse with 8.1, it was better with 8.0.

Still, Windows 8 might be a brake through for mass market OSX and Linux penetration.

There's a $5 product called "Start 8" that puts the start menu feature back into Winblows 8. It doesn't do anything for the apps that actually run inside that horrid Metro interface, but it does make it easier to get back to being something that resembles being functional.

It's my understanding 8.1 restores that start menu as well, and doesn't cost anything.

There's a $0 product called "Linux" that makes the computer usable again.
Installing it now. I was hoping to capture the preloaded Windows Phone for PC install and shrink it down into a VM but the included Norton Microsoft insisted that other operating systems are viruses.

Mp[[2~[2~Nope - not in 8.1 and won't be in 8.anything.
WinBlow$ 10 is the one to watch (they're skipping "9").
Or not.

That's what I thought, too. What they actually did is the following:
You are able to set "Boot into Desktop mode" as the default, instead of the "Tile/Metro view". Sometimes you have to activate that manually, though.
There is now a Real(tm) Windows button on the lower left corner, which does the same thing as the windows key, previously: It takes you to the Tile view. No Real(tm) Startmenu for you, sir!
You can set it to display only a list of installed programs, sorted by alphabet (sometimes by comapany) and avoid the ugliness of the tiles. But that is the best you can do without an additional tool that brings back the old behavior.
 
The most horrible thing is, that they restructure the config dialogs. Some of the functions are in the old System Settings stuff, parts of the functions are hidden in the new dialogs. For example, most of the networking and wifi stuff is where it used to be. But if you want to forget a wifi network (and its password), you need to do that via the new widget that flies in from the right side of your screen. It is like linux, but far far worse.

Microsoft, from major version to version, shifts things around such that all the crap you carefully learned from previous versions of the operating system are tossed into the wind, and you have to learn something completely different.

So, with that in mind, I don't really think of it as such a big deal. Or, at least, no more ridiculous than what they've done every other time they've had a major shift in OS.

Everyone hated the gummy bear crap they did for XP. Everyone hated Vista for shifting everything around. Now they get to hate 8.0's shifting of everything around, oh and the fucking Metro (retro?) UI.

But, honestly, this is nothing out of the ordinary. If you elect to stick with Window, get used to it.

It's particularly frustrating that they still have all these different screens that do the same thing. Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Server Manager, Computer Management, and whatever that botched abortion is that shows up when you start Windows Phone Server 2012.

On the desktop side --- after careful consideration, I have reached the conclusion that Windows 10 is an unusable piece of crap and should not be used. (Ok I haven't actually seen it yet, but I wanted to be the first to arrive at that inevitable conclusion.)
