Ask Slashdot: Share Your Experiences With Windows 10

Long-time Slashdot reader shanen writes: The Start button is broken on one of my Windows 10 machines. Left click is dead. Fairly well known problem, but none of the solutions from non-Microsoft web pages has fixed it… My little meta-problem of the day is being locked out of Microsoft’s so-called support. The email part (on outlook.live.com) works as usual, but every attempt to access the support part returns “Something went wrong and we can’t sign you in right now. Please try again later.” It’s a black hole page with no links or options or suggestions. Once you get there, you are dead to Microsoft. Whenever I try to go to Microsoft support, that’s all I’ve seen for several weeks now. ..

In general, Windows 10 seems to be a good thing — but I don’t really know how much it is abusing my personal information and privacy. The abusive relationship with Microsoft support is clearly the same, bad as it ever was.

The original submission has more thoughts on the market for consumer operating systems, and asks for suggestions about these two previously-known issues — a start button that ignores left clicks, and an ongoing lock-out from Microsoft support. But there’s obviously much more to talk about — so share your thoughts in the comments. Have you had any interesting recent experiences with Windows 10?
