Windows

A Microsoft employee who wishes to remain anonymous to the public has informed Windows Central that as of 8 AM this morning, the Windows 10 OS has reportedly been installed on a massive 67 million machines.

Even more interesting is the claim that Microsoft hit a max bandwidth of 15 Tb/s, topping the previous record of Apple's 8 Tb/s during their last OS push. Microsoft has reportedly reserved up to 40Tb/s "from all of the third-party CDNs combined".

These are pretty insane numbers.

Who have a couple old laptops laying around and figured, "What the hell?"

It's pretty bad. It's ugly. Cortana is awful. Imagine if Google Now was unable to understand 60+% of what you say, and then just constantly returned a fairly useless Bing result. The voice recognition in other apps is nearly as bad. A lot of arbitrary menu options moved around (this is a MS hallmark, it seems). Various apps got a bunch of ads added. Inclusion everywhere in Microsoft cloud bullshit, which is definitely second in class if not farther after google, dropbox, etc..

Needless to say on my REAL machines I'm happily motoring around at lightning speed in Linux Mint Debian Edition Mate version x64. It is the perfect OS.
