There's a broader move in Russia against Microsoft (and against Western companies in general). We should probably expect that to continue.

More on the thread topic however is how Microsoft appears to be moving away from it's own command-prompt. I suspect it'll stick around in some format, but some of the instructions and how-tos listed here on the site will stop functioning as written.

Microsoft now joined Linux Foundation. So what is its next move? Build portable software?

Seems like a sound intelligence gathering strategy. Windows 10, get all the hooks in, lock out Anti-virus competitors and have free reign of every system with your software on it.

We know we want people to be running Windows 10 from a security perspective, but finding the right balance where you’re not stepping over the line of being too aggressive is something we tried and for a lot of the year I think we got it right, but there was one particular moment in particular where, you know, the red X in the dialog box which typically means you cancel didn’t mean cancel
So many jokers in this world...

IMO, Microsoft already went too far earlier than that, when they removed the explicit "No thanks" button. It created the illusion that declining the upgrade is not possible.

Microsoft Reduces the Amount of Telemetry Data Collected from Windows 10 PCs

I'm still not sure if a MS account is mandatory or not for being able to change those "security" settings in the near future... :roll:
