    So it can still be turned off.. they've just made it harder for the average user.

    Enthusiasts likely already knew how to do this

    After the news that MS is closing their retail stores, the mention of "Microsoft Bars" sounds pretty good. Barman, pour me a Redmond Ale please. :p

    I am so sick of Windows updates. I believe my Hades Canyon NUC is still on 1904 and I’m dreading a forced update that’ll do weird things since it has the Intel/Radeon RX Vega M oddity. Time to try Linux. All I do on Windows nowadays is gaming anyway, and Steam’s Proton compatibly layer (Wine-based) is about ready for prime time (Skyrim SE, Witcher 3, etc. work acceptably).

    So when I finish my current motorcycle tour in October I’m done with MS.

    Good to hear from you Ted - motorcycle tour sounds like a blast - enjoy (and put Windows out of its misery).

    Please tell me you used a Wacom pen to erase the license plate. Also, this looks freaking awesome, way to ride out the pandemic. :cool:
