As for "corporate apologist" , well, it refers to people that praise the product blindly not taking into the account all the bad things it brings to the table, and also you dont have a problem calling people genuinely disliking undoubtedly worse OS in some regards, as a "goons" , it goes both ways.
Win 10 had and still has MANY flawes, and whats worse, many of them are by design.And what it gives ? For great many people. Nothing.
I dont care about 5s quicker boot.I dont care about dx12.I dont want UWP or ms store.I want an os, 7 gives me that without of all the hassle making w10 work, besides w10 seems to be in constant state of beta, with endless updates that fix some things, and brake another.But yea, call me a goon because i dont want something that doesnt give me anything good, but has crapload of problems .
And dont get me wrong, if MS would clean up win 10, added features i like and removed i dont like, they would have my money.But its not going to happen, because i want control, and they dont want to give it to users, because win 10 is not an os, its a service with ads and a way to push more product.Anyhow, win 7/8 have still many years in them for most people, probably up to 5 with absolutely no problem.
