It seems that Microsoft is mounting problems with its new operating system. Some users are complaining about the poor performance of Windows 10, which is why they propose to perform a collective complaint against Microsoft. The idea of the lawsuit was started in a Windows forum, if you know English you can see the thread here!.
Windows 10 promised a lot, however as we can see here it is not so bad if we compare it with Ubuntu. The other reason is that for people who have migrated from other systems (especially Windows 7), a lot of problems are happening that Microsoft tries to correct as best it can with patches, but that they do not cope.
Reasons for the possible lawsuit against Microsoft
- Lack of privacy: You surely remember when I told you that GNU classified Microsoft as Malware. It is known to all that Windows 10 is going through the lining of the privacy of users (the one that is free has a price), being the opposite of Linux, that is, a spy operating system. This, although some of you are the same, many are quite concerned about this issue.
- Poor performance and errors: Especially to people who have migrated from Windows 7, Windows 10 has caused a drop in performance with many errors, noticing only that it starts faster.
- The seeker is a potato: Admittedly, the internal Windows 7 search engine was pretty decent. In Windows 10 it suffers slowdowns and often refers only to the Bing results.
- Cortana and Explorer don't work: Every so often, the computer freezes, when you restart it, this message appears and you have to restart it every little bit.
- You don't know what system it is on: On some occasions, when turning on the PC, the Windows startup sound sounds 7 and he thinks for a while, taking longer than necessary to start up.
- Essential things stop working: Things like Wi-Fi, the app store, Cortana… They stop working when they feel like it.
- Applications stop working in Windows 10: I remember when my father stopped working Norton Antivirus when updating. Many applications and games stop working well when migrating to this system.
- It is not so bad: As I mentioned before, the operating system is not really as huge a breakthrough as Microsoft preaches. If we do a real performance comparison with Linux systems, the system is portrayed. If we compare it with Windows 8.1 or with Windows 7, the performance is the same or worse in most of the cases. The convergence promises also come to mind, in which they promised a mobile system identical to the pc, which they have not fulfilled however
- It really is the same: Although in theory they have changed the kernel, it is really the same but with the name changed. Working with the Windows Kernel has no point of comparison to that of Linux, which is in continuous improvement despite having less budget. In Windows they just recycle the one from the previous year and change the name, but it really is always the same.
In conclusion, Microsoft should somewhat imitate the work that Linux people do, who spend day and night working on their operating systems despite being poorer. The case of Ubuntu comes to mind, which release a version after 3 days they are already starting to work on the next. In Windows, they have been limited to taking a 2-kick system, that the only thing that changes is the name and that it has a lot of bugs.
As for the collective complaint, if it is done, I don't think it will change anything (Microsoft is a multinational with money to spare). However if that they should listen to users since one day they will lose them.
