What really bugs me about Windows is how difficult it’s getting to use the darn thing without signing into a Microsoft account. I’ve realised you can bypass this in the setup procedure by not connecting to the internet.
(side tangent, the button to to this is tiny, doesn’t even look like a button, and says “I don’t have internet”, which probably gives non-technical users who have internet the idea that whatever this does, it needn’t concern them.)
While running the OS there’s several places that prompt you to sign in, and every now and again there’s a full screen nag telling me how great it would be if I signed in (another side tangent: the button to not sign in is once again tiny and doesn’t look like a button). They even have the audacity to claim having an online account tied to your operating system can “enhance security”. I simply cannot fathom how tethering all the information on your PC to the internet is a good idea.
security is a lie!)
