My original point can be made more clearly. I've been using linux mint on my laptops for ages now due to its stability and since its based on debian I have all the software i care for. If they decided to push out updates that broke my system repeatedly I would maybe try Miley Cyrus Linux or even Windows2000. No-one in our community would put up with the crap microsoft is doing to windows 10 users and their data.
Remember the backlash Canonical got when it added a radio button during installation where it could collect the tiniest amount of telemetry by default?
Imagine a world where windows 10 users all said FU M$ we're all switching to Slax running off a keyring. Hell they might even try Puppy Linux if it came on a usb tamagotchi dog...
I might have gone too far there, but I hope you see my point now. I'm seeing more and more stories of folk switching to linux, and its all because of Microshite themselves.
