probably winos because back in the day you'd type "win", because windows was the winner's choice

to clarify, i meant "trying to be as good" since you're right, people have been moving over to teams because microsoft has a stranglehold on company/education directory and people management, but teams does generally suck and has that feeling that a lot of microsoft products like outlook have where there's too much poo poo jammed into it and it's slow.

i mean i just opened our Teams channel (that is a ghost town because no one wants to use it) and I got a spinny icon for ~1 min before it gave up:

I had to use it for a microsoft interview and ended up using the web version because the native installed version just froze my computer. I've gotten recruiter emails for the teams team there too and I'm like "lol no"

use explorer patcher if you want to make it look like windows 10 in whatever ways, preferably the dev version it has more fixes

after using that it's fine

e: except for the missing tablet tiles mode and worse screen/hdr stability, that sucks especially for tablets and 2-in-1s, but I've made my peace with it

e2: also VR is a bit spotty on 11 too

yeah, I'm going to install a bunch of poo poo that will probably make things really unstable and brick the system next update. good idea

quote:

The file that you download may trigger a false positive alert in your antivirus program. This is fairly normal, a sign that the product you are using is decently capable, since it features detection methods a bit more advanced than what was state of the art in 1999. The program being flagged is usually done through heuristic analysis, not via a database of know viruses. That means that the antivirus program thinks that due to the nature of the code in this application, it likely may be a virus, a program that the user does not really mean to run. Injecting code into other executable programs is rarely done by legitimate programs. One such kind of legitimate programs is this patcher, that you deliberately choose to run and let it alter Explorer's code and memory in a controlled manner so that you achieve a certain effect. Thus, this patcher falls in the category of false positives: your antivirus thought such a program was not something you meant to run, but that's not the case this time.
