    I was always surprised Windows never support basic smart data display, so this is a good idea but why not support SATA SSDs too?

    Or HDDs. I was very glad years ago when a Linux box I was in charge of emailed me to say its hard drive was failing, before it just died and people started doing the headless chicken panic.

    Honestly the amount of 'basic' things that windows should have but aren't there as standard is pretty bad.

    Even to this day it doesn't come with out of the box thumbnail generation for things like pdf's, even though it has built in viewing via edge etc...

    While this feature is nice to have, especially if it has a warning linked to it, most of likely have tools that do this already and are 'better' overall.

    Most of us probably do, most Windows users overall probably don't. In some ways it would be analogous to Notepad: Are there better text editors? Definitely. But the beauty of notepad is that you can guarantee its available on any Windows machine you use.

    The thing is that this isn't really something most windows users would even know about so in some respects 'we' are the target market lol. The warning is good for less tech savvy users though.

    Aren't they looking to remove notepad... or was that wordpad....just checked, it was both being made optional install alongside paint.

    And that's a principle I've wanted more widely adopted since, well, about Windows 3 days. At the very least, there's a lot of stuff I wish could be deselected if you do a 'custom' install, including most built-in utilities many of which were castrated versions of 3rd party tools. Mind you, even MS aren't as bad at that as both Android and many phone manufacturers that not only include useless hunk but make it quite hard work to turn it all off, never mind actually uninstall.

    Sorry. Pet Peeve #17 now over.

    I think in the past MS have been accused of monopoly abuse if they include a new program with Windows. So like with the browser wars, they need to really want to include a program to bother.

    Even their basic packaging is pitiful compared to Linux/Unix OSes, but any attempt to revamp that would result in companies that write the annoying installer/uninstaller programs going bust and a ton of flack aimed at MS for destroying jobs.

    Their app store should gloss over a lot of these issues, but I never even remember it exists most of the time.
