I've finally got a Win 10 system running which doesn't make me completely nuts. -But it's an old Win 10 build, pre-Anniversary. I found various ways to lock MS out, to stop it from downloading updates or even pester me about them. (-It's a service! After all the insane hackery, Windows Update was only ever just a dopey service all this time. CTRL, ALT, flippin' DEL, and you no longer have to suffer the indignities of arbitrary and often unreliable brain surgeries at the most inappropriate times. -You can tell it to never start up from the task manager window. A solution SO simple that a legion of IT bloggers and tech writers couldn't figure it out over the course of two years since Win 10's launch. I found one reference in a long buried comment from some fellow who thankfully took the time to type: "Um, guys, it's a service. I just turned it off from the Task Manager. Why all the fuss?") I killed Cortana and got the fonts to size correctly, got the blurred effects on old UIs to sharpen up.., among a dozen other things. Since October of last year, I've managed to pull much of the Borg Collective synapse ganglia out of my Dell Inspiron's brain. Some of it was still baked in too deeply, mind you; The "Action Center" defeated me, remains the single most annoying screen land mine I've ever encountered on an OS, but for the most part I can get work done and I don't want to kill my computer while doing it. I'm quite content to sit pat. But I hear there are new things the stylus can do if you install the Anniversary update. Refinements. Hmmm. I like refinements. So my question is this: Is it worth allowing MS back into my computer's brain? It's been a few months now for people to settle in. What are the advantages, -from a TPC user's perspective? What are the disadvantages? Is drawing on a computer with a pen better than it was before? Thanks!
