Wow... how did Windows get to be so bad? I mean, it used to be a pretty decent operating system.

@cuchaz do not worry; I have had ALL those problems just because I needed to write an EPROM with the GQ-4X (the software only works in Windows).
I'd still be using Windows 7 for all this if I could
@yakkoj I know, right? Happy to have a comrade in this misery.
I miss the old Windows XP days. Life was a lot simpler back then.
@cuchaz yep and at one point the two were so tied together that when their web/cortana servers went down, people could not *SEARCH LOCALLY*

Reminds me of the door locks that ban people from their houses if AWS has a hiccup.
