WTF, I just read that MS is going to start charging people for keeping their computers running smoothly. Shouldn't MS get their o/s's running right BEFORE they start tryin to keep peoples computers running right. ???

If they do that I will move to a Linux distro, greedy bathplugs :-X  >:(

Bigguy

It might be just on the corporation lvl...not sure. Linux is lookin better all the time.

Yup, they have officially started to run it into the ground on purpose! LOL

I didn't get the impression it was a requirement deal but I could be wrong. I can't imagine them requiring people to pay for a service like this.
The first option in any automated phone menu should be
"I'm really super pissed and just want to talk to a human!"

Bigguy

I might go get some sort of Linux and put that on usb or cd, just to be safe, lol.

This is for corporation only and is only an optional package they can purchase. Here's a quote from ZDnet about it:

"And just in case there's still any confusion, MMD is an option for corporate customers only; this is not a mandatory "Windows 365"-type service for consumers or business users."

Thanks for the clarification Steve-O.  :)

I thought it would be just for corps but was not sure. Glad it is.

* 🅻🅴🆂🅼🅾🅽🅳 is glad too

Might still put Linux on my old lappy to play with :)

Bigguy

I think it's a good idea. Been awhile since I played with it.

At the moment I use my laptop with RDC (Remote desktop connection)  and run it full time to record my security cam footage.

looks weird on my 3 monitors, heres screen with WUB on 2 of them ;)


Bigguy

For those that play with servers, installing linux is always a great idea...especially if using a linux server. You'll get used to using the system and linux commands.
