Last evening I left my desktop running the whole night on a photoshop job and I hit the bed after a long day at work. Today morning I was rushing myself for my day job and I realized that my desktop shows “blue screen of death ” with a message and hung desktop.
“Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart, we’re just collecting some error info, and then we’ll restart for you”
Microsoft were happy boasting that Blue Screen of Death is no more and I just saw it with my own PC. Moreover Microsoft collects the information from my machine without my consent which is ridiculous. There is nothing to hide for me but its not fair to control my PC when I paid the money for their crappy unstable OS. I understand the fact that they need to understand the problems of users but for the feedback Microsoft doesn’t provide any compensation and not even a gift card. In return they use feedback and develop next version of Operation System and call it a new version of Windows. I am sure they have an army of attorneys ready waiting to defend or sue anyone who try to contact them for such issues.
I did some research online on this and realized there are tons of people who received this error message starting from Win 8 and its not new. They do have some valid points to say its a serious problem but funny part is that this is a never ending battle taking uses for granted. This post has been Windows bash post but it was badly needed.
(This may not be the solution for most of them but here are my few cents. I have been a Windows guy throughout my life until now. I have been using macbookpro from Apple for little more than a year as my first experiment and I am happy with it. There are a lot of challenges when it comes to some basic functions but once you get used to it you will be a happy user. No more Windows bundle or junk that kills my system. With time I may convert to a Apple user very well if performances stay as is now)
