5# Windows sucks
6
7Windows is proprietary software so you don't have control over
8it. Instead micr\*s\*ft has control over **YOU**
9.
10The following operating systems sucks:
11
12* Windows 9x
13* Windows 2000
14* Windows xp
15* Windows Vista
16* Windows 7
17* Windows 8/8.1
18* Windows 10
19
20Microsoft spies on you, puts ads on your system and charges you. Which
84d96a2a 21should be illegal. In fact spying on you should be illegal.

23Windows comes with installed program you didn't even asked for. which
24is true bloatware. More bloated than the Linux kernel.
25
84d96a2a 26Windows sucks for development, you don't have any equivalent to, for
ccb424f8 27example /usr/include and you have to install bash/cygwin to get a
28"GNU/Linux feeling"
29
30Microsoft really hates standards, their products used not to be
31compatible with most standards. Internet Explorer for example. GNU
32software doesn't follows the standards at 100%, but GNU software does
33add something useful to the software instead of making it a pain in
34the ass.

36# Backdoors
37
38Is not a mistery for anyone that Win10 is absolutely backdoored. A
39example of this is that [Microsoft disk encryption is
40backdoored.](https://theintercept.com/2015/12/28/recently-bought-a-windows-computer-microsoft-probably-has-your-encryption-key/)
41Since it stores the unlocking password in **your** Microsoft account.
42
43If you try to install another browser (Firefox the one which rhymes
44with "Noodle Dome") [it begs you not
45to](https://www.ghacks.net/2018/09/12/microsoft-intercepting-firefox-chrome-installation-on-windows-10/)
46
47# Interference
48
49Not allowing the user to install whatever he wants is very
50shitty. It's my fucking computer!
51
52Not to mention when Microsoft forced the users to install
53Windows 10. Sometimes without users knowing.
54
55# Sabotage
56
57[Windows update remove software
58installed](http://www.ghacks.net/2015/11/24/beware-latest-windows-10-update-may-remove-programs-automatically/). For
59example. If you upgrade windows, very likely the MBR will be
60overwritten. So if you were dual-booting with GNU/Linux, prepare the
61GRUB (or LILO) Fixer USB.

63In Windows, a DRM files can be used to identify people using Tor.
64The vulnerability only exists in Windows (Win-fags BTFO)
65
66[Windows informs to the NSA about exploits before fixing
67them](https://web.archive.org/web/20130622044225/http://blogs.computerworlduk.com/open-enterprise/2013/06/how-can-any-company-ever-trust-microsoft-again/index.htm)
68
69Not to mention Windows upgrades without your consent. We already
70talked about why automatically upgrades are bad:
71
72* Remove useful features
73* Add useless features
74* Phones homes every time you open the software to check if upgrade is
75 available (This is the reason I think package managers are the best
76 thing that could ever happen to GNU/Linux. You upgrade if YOU
77 want. You can read the changelog before upgrading)
78
79Conclusion: Don't trust proprietary software. Especially in sensitive
80subjects. Such as privacy, encryption...
