Microsoft MVP, Microsoft Answers forum moderator, and Patchmanagement.org moderator Susan Bradley has posted a petition to Satya Nadella, asking that Microsoft make two sorely needed changes to Windows 10. If you agree, you should head over to change.org and add your name to the list of signatories.
In short, Bradley proposes that:
- Microsoft must give Windows 10 users more control over when updates are installed.
- Microsoft should provide detailed information on what's in each update.
Without those changes, Windows 10 doesn't stand a chance in the corporate world, and it's severely hamstrung for individual users.
Perhaps there was a golden era when we could trust Microsoft to keep Windows fixed and operating properly. That era -- if it ever existed -- has long since passed.
Forced, stealthy patches will kill Windows 10.
Nadella has asked us to move beyond needing Windows to wanting Windows to loving Windows. It's hard to love something that's victimized you repeatedly. Sadly, the situation isn't improving.
Without much greater disclosure, it would be foolish and irresponsible for a company (or a savvy individual) to rely on Windows 10.
Think about it. Then sign.
