Microsoft is living proof that to be highly successful in the USA you need to be a thief. Billy boy gates who started this monstrosity stole most of the code from others. He had little skills himself in programming but was more of a sociopath than anything else.
Having had YEARS and YEARS to do it, MS still cannot produce a reliable, secure and bug free operating system. Now the company itself has become a hacker, injecting code into your windows without your permission or notice. Their software is so bad my advice is to avoid it at all costs. Ditto their so called "support". Learn linux, unix or go with apple, much better choice except that MS has a stranglehold over 3rd party software so hard to get any programs for free unless u use windows. Hopefully trump will break up some of these sluggish, incompetent and dishonest giants, but don't hold ur breath
I have to image my windows OS because it is so flaky and given to serious errors the only way to repair it is to reimage the entire OS.
constant needs to reboot to eliminate bugs. inexplicable error messages and advice that leaves you more in the dark than when u started.
