How dissapointingly naive of you
Only recently they tried to get a perpetually internet connected blackbox in millions of people's living rooms, hooked up to a sensitive microphone and camera, and disregard consumer rights in the progress. But they didn't get away with it, because they were simply too upfront and arrogant about it.
So they're doing it now with Windows 10, an OS they're aggressively trying to trick people into installing it.
Did I mention this company was actively trying to curb the development of the internet in the second half of the 90's?
Oh, and starting from yesterday, they decided to directly intervene with that pesky thing called free speech in my part of the world (at least other tech giants are involved too)
Fuck Microsoft, man. They're the prime example of scumbag crony capitalism, and they're worse than ever. To ignore all this because of their C++ standards compliance is a pretty skewed reason, to say the least.
Rant over - sorry for intruding
