They “could literally view any customer’s communications at any time.” Specifically, they were asked to screen Microsoft users’ communications for child pornography and evidence of other crimes.
And what does that actually imply? Can microsoft remote into anyone's computer? Or is this just stuff that's on microsoft servers like Onedrive shit.

I don't know, I'm not in that group. But I think they're part of PSS support, and that was Kevin Turner's group at that time, so I could see it being very true (ie the employee getting shit on).

As for content screening, still no idea. The technology is there to do it, but the group I'm is forbidden from elevating to customer data, so I can't really answer that.

How do I know you're not an Apple shill? I mean, this is exactly the kind of behavior I would expect from one. Can you offer us proof you're not?

architecture of their botnet, and how pervasive it is.
Azure. Though the "botnet" is mostly Bing, and that's seeded from Canyon Park.

No. I don't have source depot access, and wouldn't distribute anything, no matter old, even if I did.

No, white, mid 30's male.

How much shit is constantly breaking?
Actually very little of the "corporate infrastructure" or offered services suffers a complete outage. Servers fail, sure. It happens. But 5 9's is still a thing. Usually, when Outlook.com or Office365 break, it's because idiot cut a fiber bundle.

Though there was this one time when a power tech went to do a PMM test in a data center (480v 3 phase @ 300A/phase I think) and dropped a set of dykes across two of the phases. Knocked the entire data center off-line by triggering an EPO. Also released the Halon. That shit is poison...

Outdated? No. Vulnerable? Not really. The security teams do a decent enough job. But like anywhere the weak spot is the people.

There's some stuff ongoing, sure. I think I saw something on Slashdot about it a few months ago. They say it was a "miss-step". I say it was pure and absolute bullshit.

Does Microsoft purposely go overboard on certain release features (like UAC and Win10 automatic reboots) so the later shift to a more reasonable (but still restrictive) setting is seen as a welcome improvement, instead of something to complain about?

Thomas Nguyen
Thomas Nguyen

The difference between Sup Forums and /v/ is that Microsoft actually makes money on Sup Forums (Xbox Live).

Sup Forums is just a whole new level of autism.

I don't think so, no. It seems to be more of a "People don't update, and get virus's because of it, so lets force the update because safety" type thing.

Think of it as a miss-guided attempt to protect "you" from "yourself".

For what should be obvious reasons automatic is disabled by GPO.

Henry Collins
Henry Collins

People don't update because people have gotten the (correct) impression that every update slows your computer down more and more.

I can run a linux install for years and it will be as fast as the day i installed it no matter how many packages I install.

Meanwhile on windows, the windows rot is real, no matter how much I try to avoid installing needless shit.

John Howard

Yes, but Microsoft often backpedals on the extent. Win10 updates now notify you before a scheduled reboot and allow you to put it off for a week. This is a rather nice improvement over walking away from your computer with a 5 day encode running and coming back to it restarting. But if it had been released this way it would have been only seen as being a major restriction over 7 instead of a nice improvement over the ultra shitty release version.

Ah, yes, because you doing nothing but surfing Sup Forums on your $80 Thinkpad makes you Sup Forums.

Sure, but it should simply be "install X patches by Y date or loose network access" like it is with NAP and SCCM.

Or maybe the world just needs to get used to the idea of maintenance windows...

Evan Baker

Sure, but it should simply be "install X patches by Y date or loose network access" like it is with NAP and SCCM.
I don't think that would go over as well. Instead of, "We're helping you stay updated," it becomes, "YOU MAY ONLY ACCESS THE INTERNET WITH OUR PERMISSION!"
A boot is something normies do daily. Having your internet purposely broken and being told you're being forced into a manual reboot it to fix it is not.

Luke Morris
Luke Morris

telemetry and data mining.
So, these to me are two different things.

telemetry
This is a thing I really like. I get feedback on exactly what's going on and where I'm bogging down. For example, program X forking Y causing a spike in drive response time.

data mining
I think of this as user data mining. It's bullshit. There's something to be said for getting to know the user so you can be genuinely useful, but to monetize that is an entirely new level of corporate evil.

Satya has said we're cloud first / mobile first.

Azure and O365 are growing, so that's good.

Enterprise has always been among the top focuses, and I don't see that changing.

I don't think so, but I'm not in that group.

Windows 10 frequently takes screenshots of user activity
If you're using an alpha or very early beta build, or have opted into the fast ring inside builds, I can see that being a thing. Though less so with actually publicly released builds.

Also, Neon will forever be the first release Xbox 360.

Does the company know at some level that you're pirating? Likely, yes. It's an incremental counter when someone tries to activate a key, or the install ID and GUID as done by something like KMSPico or Daz.

Do they care? Again, I'm sure at some level. But from a business perspective it doesn't make any sense to engage an attorney that costs more in an hour than a Windows or Office license.

An entire company on the other hand, you better prepare your anus.

I've pulled apart telemetry data. The scream is encrypted, and the key a guarded secret. So unless the guy has the key, I'm pretty sure it's bullshit.

So congrats to you guys for out apple-ing apple this year. surfacebook and surface studio hit it out of the park. Who was behind this push really ?

I personally use Debian + cinnamon on macbook hardware and managed to ditch windows permantly in 2014 (wont get into it) I understand you guys just want everyone on win 10 but let me tell you a story.

i have a close chiq friend that does media production (drawing) on an older touch tablet. The win 10 drivers dont work on her machine and borked it. She needed at least win 7 sp2 to run Adobe CC. i helped her do a fresh install the other day.

install 7 30minutes
activate
install drivers
dont work need special order
download drivers all it once with special manufacturers app
uses tonnes of mobile bandwidth
get win7 working
download the update updater so i can
download the convienience update
update windows
reboots
remove GWX because 10 doesnt work on her hardware
Then remove telemetry installed with the convenience update

Seriosus Question - Do you honestly think people will put up with this shit much longer ? It took two people half a day to get a functional system for work. it took me 5 minutes to install linux mint mint and we were drawing with the stylus in GIMP and i could walk away.

Do you think Microsoft made a mistake with win7 telemetry and do you think a live linux stick is less stressful than a windows install in 2017 ?

Aaron Williams

Why did you guys screw with Windows 7 update? I have SP1 ISO with authentic license key. I can't update it anymore. It keeps "Checking for updates" for 10 years.

Elijah Howard
Elijah Howard

Never activate first. That's just silly.

I'm not sure why you had issues with the driver order. I suspect it may be machine specific.

8.1 and (ugh) 10 are better about drivers with Windows Update, but in my experience they tend to fuck up the Intel GPU drivers.

Seriosus Question - Do you honestly think people will put up with this shit much longer ?
Serious answer - Yes. Because people are stupid. We live in a world where nobody actually wants to fix anything, they just use a hash tag.

Fringe cases are one thing, but if your shit was on the Windows HCL, you're using the version of Windows it's certified for, and the hardware is good, I'd call and complain. The problem is going to be proving it's a Microsoft error. But if you can, unload on the support team. Make them fix that shit.

There's a regression bug in windows update. If you have PowerShell V3 this should work, but I haven't tested it.

Function WSUSUpdate {
$Criteria = "IsInstalled=0 and Type='Software'"
$Searcher = New-Object -ComObject Microsoft.Update.Searcher
try {
$SearchResult = $Searcher.Search($Criteria).Updates
if ($SearchResult.Count -eq 0) {
Write-Output "There are no applicable updates."
exit
}
else {
$Session = New-Object -ComObject Microsoft.Update.Session
$Downloader = $Session.CreateUpdateDownloader()
$Downloader.Updates = $SearchResult
$Downloader.Download()
$Installer = New-Object -ComObject Microsoft.Update.Installer
$Installer.Updates = $SearchResult
$Result = $Installer.Install()
}
}
catch {
Write-Output "There are no applicable updates."
}
}

Note - I didn't write this. But it's something I use when I run into issues. I don't recall where I found it. It's also something that I only use at home, because again, I didn't write it.

It might be the whiskey talking, but I'm not following. What are you trying to activate. Windows 7 or Windows 10?
If you're trying to activate both, you're double dipping, so gratz.

If you're just trying to activate Windows 10 and can't do it online, call it in.

Usually, the key gets embedded in the uEFI, but not every system has uEFI. If anything in the upgrade chain was ever OEM, and you don't have that machine anymore, you're technically in violation of your license.

However. Calling to activate should work fine, even if you'd rather drown in a pool of your own vomit (I know I would)

See, this is the one thing that Apple got right. From m68K to PPC, there was a cut off. No more legacy support. Then again from PPC to x86.

Though that wouldn't really work, because LOB developers are also equally lazy and retarded, and breaking compatibility is a bad thing.

It's not a bug
Yes, it is. Too many people use Windows 7 internally for testing. I think 7 needs to die in a fire, but that's just me.

MS intentionally crippled all the win7 ISO's and/or their update service
[citation needed]

Because it includes a large portion of the libraries the SCCM company portal needs.

Dear MS employee. When I was about 13 years old my school visited the MS campus and was given a tour of the main buildings.

I was that kid who kept needing the toilet and you had to escort him to and from them, I had very bad diarrhea that day and I turned that restroom into little India.

I'm sorry you got stuck looking after my shitty ass.
