    Clutching at straws to keep Windows relevant. Feels like Windows 10 has completely run out of steam

    Re: Microsoft testing Windows Feature Experience Pack updates

    Well do a OS have to morph into something new all the time ?

    Personally i dont use anything new in any windows since XP i think, my win 10 i have butchered / messed with so it do not look in any way like Microsoft i assume think how people want it to be.
    Same go for Andriod on my phone, that barely function with all the BS i have disabled.

    I expect that day when windows will be absorbed by a Linux variation and stop these nonsenses.

    I always used snipping tool over the "new" snip and sketch app, I guess I wasn't the only one stuck in their ways though and they now want us off it.

    I do like how they have worded it to make it seem the whole app and shortcut is new, when in fact it has always worked, all they have done is allow pasting your snip into a folder rather than another app. The sketch and snip app doesn't really let you know that your snip is only being saved to clipboard either it just snips and then sits there like nothing happened, it could confuse people if they are expecting it to be saved somewhere.

    It does what I need and doesn't get in the way, has a good hardware and software ecosystem with much of the software being free.
    As long as Microsoft keep things that way I'm happy.
