     WHY I AM NOT IN LOVE WITH WINDOWS

Windows 7 is no longer supported by Microsoft.  Windows 8/8.1 had so many issues, many believed that it was never worth installing and is now also no longer supported by Microsoft.  Although you may believe you upgraded to Windows 10 for free, or just paid a one time purchase, Microsoft generates income from Windows 10 through:

-Apps, games, movies and other items from the Microsoft Store
-Bloatware apps that are preinstalled in Windows 10 or are installed with
Feature Releases
-Advertisements in Windows 10
-The search feature in Windows 10.
 
More importantly, the quality of Windows updates has declined significantly
and, at times, creates more new problems than are fixed.  After discussing
the above, we will briefly talk about alternative operating systems to
Windows.
