  1. Why Windows 10 is poor

    December 10, 2015 by The Man

    I loved XP and Windows 7 and there is a lot to like with Windows 10 but sometimes you see something and you just think WTF !!!

    Windows Updates WTF

    So you couldn’t install updates because my pc was turned off, no shit Sherlock. At least it’s better than the metro app update screen which gives you no clue whatsoever.

    Are You Doing Anything

  2. Delete Metro Apps from Windows 10

    If you work in a SME and have had the pleasure of Windows 10 you’ll know that Metro (yes I know it’s not called Metro anymore) apps can be a pita and seem to have huge updates at regular intervals. 120+ mb per machine (no WUS for these apps yet) can take up a lot of valuable bandwidth and let’s not even get started about the security concerns. Indeed these apps seem to be designed with individuals in mind but not companies, I don’t want to log in with a Microsoft account just to update and secure these apps. So let’s just delete them.

    That should fix at least one of the problems with Windows 10.
