updated win 10 yesterday. it showed me a full-screen prompt to upgrade to 11. when I said no, it presented me with another full-screen prompt asking me “are you suuuuuuuuuuure?” kinda desperate, tbh

The Cortana feature was only officially called “Cortana” after the codename leaked during development—another early suggestion was “Alyx,” and then-CEO Steve Ballmer tried to name it “Bingo” as a “parting gift” before handing the reins to current CEO Satya Nadella. (Ballmer had “poor product taste,” says Paruchuri, in what we in the tech biz call “an understatement.”)

Bingo is an insanely stupid name BUT I could almost see it working if they brought back the power pup office assistant and retconned that as its name

bingo already has bing in it plus it has “go” in it which makes way more sense to the kind of windows user who would ever use such an assistant. wtf is a cortana? doesnt office come with a font named cortana too? ballmer was right.

we've got a hybrid exchange setup because management doesn't want to pay for full azure AD. also i think we've got a few legacy systems rattling around that wouldn't be able to authenticate with ms365. but mostly the cost thing.

they also made it so that the taskbar context menu only appears if you right-click the start button when previously it would appear if you right-click anywhere on the taskbar. i'm super used to launching task manager by right-clicking the taskbar so it's driving me crazy.

that ofc is a minor nuisance and the worst part(s) of the win11 UI is the removal of full-screen start and its replacement with this bullshit:



there's no way to disable or hide that "Recommended" section so it is just foreverially wasted space. previously i've always used full-screen start as it's the best loving way to do poo poo. pin your primary apps to the taskbar and pin your secondary apps to the start menu where they appear as big buttons that you can launch with winkey+click button. now instead you've got a 6x3 grid of medium sized icons along with a bunch of dumb wasted space it's so stupid

i doubt it, for 99.95% of people the option of not registering a microsoft account is a trap choice, probably just as well to get the remaining 0.05% onto gentoo or whatever where they'll genuinely be happier.
