"Microsoft is ending support for Windows 10 in October 2025, but the company is now taking the unusual step of reopening its beta program for Windows 10 to test new features and improvements."

Are they just going to start cramming more AI into it to see if they can force people to upgrade?

If the Microsoft Windows 11 PC (which I am forced to use for client/work) is any proof, every Microsoft AI feature added to the OS is subtracting 15-20% of the productivity from your employees. 🙄

Or, maybe it's Patch Tuesday.

I see posts calling for folks to write/email/call/smoke signal/wire/semaphore their representatives about the security fuckery of Windows Recall.

I'm more of an "act locally" guy. Email your place of employment's heads of legal and IT stating your concerns, and send them this article. Hell, throw in your local schoolboards and universities to boot.

Microsoft has patched bypasses for setting up Windows 11 without a Microsoft account. Previous methods like terminating a process or using a blocked email now loop back to account linking. Users can still bypass this via a command prompt trick.

The mass exodus from #Windows to #Linux (and #Mac) due to #Windows11 and #AI continues. More and more articles, more and more youtube videos about it, or posts on forums. People are switching. If it continues like that, Linux should have 10% desktop marketshare by the end of the decade (and yes, that's a lot).

Muchos usuarios utilizan un truco de correo electrónico para evitar la creación de una cuenta de Microsoft. Al parecer, esto ha sido detenido por Microsoft.

Me da a mi que Microsoft le está haciendo el trabajo a Linux para que este aumente su cuota de usuarios.

It just clicked in my brain. What I haven't been able to articulate about why I'm so anxious about #Windows Recall. I'm sure others have already gotten to where I am.

It's worse than "a system that tracks everything you do" and stores that info in a basic database that could be easily compromised.
It's worse than a nanny surveillance tool for companies to spy on their employees.

It's inescapable.

It doesn't matter if I make a dozen "how to disable recall" tutorials. The second YOUR data shows up on someone ELSE'S screen, it's in THEIR recall database.

It won't matter if you're a master #security expert specialist. You can't account for EVERY other computer you've ever interacted with. If a family member looks up an old email with your personal data in it, your data is now at risk.

If THEIR system is compromised YOUR data is at risk.

I just went from "vague feeling of unease" to "actively writing templates to canvas elected officials, regulators, and attorneys general."

I think I have a good feeling on what the response might be here on Mastodon, but with Microsoft pledging to improve security, and making Recall opt-in, will this change your perception of Windows 11?

Everything you ever saw or wrote on your device, even if deleted, will remain in definitely remain available and searchable for users of the device, including .
Opting out requires work.

Also, in my view, I doubt that it is compliant in its current form.
Beware.

A whole slate of new laptops are coming, and of course, manufacturers are trying to impress us with THINNESS! What about test driving a machine at the complete OPPOSITE of the thinness spectrum? https://somegadgetguy.com/b/45T

It's so rad to do a sponsored video like this, and the first thing they ask is "Can you blast our laptop with a hose?"

It's big, thicc, and chunky, but there are SO MANY things on this Getac I wish I had on "regular" thin laptops...

The hilarious thing about Microsoft going all in on AI with #CoPilot and #Recall, they threw Intel and AMD under the bus. The whole last year of "AI PCs" won't get features like Recall.
The consumer reaction to Recall has been overwhelmingly negative, but all these companies are afraid of shareholders and investors wanting more AI hype to make stock prices look good.
But #AMD and #Intel have all these chips made that are falling in price fast.
You can find some CRAZY deals on computers right now that WONT run Recall, but are over-kill powerful for home systems.

https://somegadgetguy.com/b/45e

Mini PC's used to sell chips that were two or three years old. This Geekom is using AMD's current laptop chip, with 32GB of RAM, and 2TB of storage for $899!

It's a REAL good time to shop a NON Recall compatible PC.
