With each forced release of Windows 10, the operating system is slowly becoming dumber. Maybe that’s good since the masses who use it are mostly dumb. Maybe it is a good match.
The problem is that they are slowly phasing out all the tools that administrators use to make modifications. The ubiquitous Control Panel is almost impossible to find if you don’t search for it. The Printer control panel is also hiding. So many important tools are fading out and will soon be gone with the wind(ows).
Yes, there are big fonted, dumbed-down, push button and switch-like alternatives but where are all the options we need? Gone or hidden so deep you will need a shovel to find them. Fortunately the registry and the group policy editor are still there for power admins.
Personally, I don’t like it. Yes, it’s partially because the old way was perfect and the new way is…dumb. I feel like we are losing control of Windows. Soon it will be like Apple’s OS. Few options: “You’ll eat what’s on your plate and like it!”
Linux is still out there but it will never replace Windows no matter how dumb Windows gets. Go watch the movie, “Idiocracy.” That’s where we are going really quickly.
