Microsoft and universities Anonymous 10/06/2017 (Fri) 19:10:05 [Preview] No. 11528
Hello /tech/. What is that? You have similar stuff in your university too? Any implications?

Free microshitware. I personally only use the Windows 8 Education edition for VMs and the graphing program for mapping out software.

Remember kids, this is the sort of shit your ridiculous term fees pay for. Why? Well the high fees have to be justified somewhere!

Hated taking cs classes and getting free microsoft trials as a student but theu would fucking run out before the semester was over and then I would have to scramble to figure out how to get my HW done without buying the software, while dealing with the flags Microsoft leaves in your system to prevent simply reinstalling the trial. Gotta make my own property.

The implication is that Microsoft is like a cuckoo bird, replacing the university's eggs of education with its own.

The whole point is so that you have mindshare in M$ so that when you're out of University M$ has you cucked to the point where you have to pay them to make use of all that you learned. Don't fucking use their shit.

Early M$ worker from day one saw that the MCSE program was a wheel of pain to push for your whole career with them. I thank God for all the classes I did not sit through or pay for that they had already planned as obsolete and far too empowering, back then. Autoruns, for example, was suppressed by them. Why give people control over what's happening on their machine? ow win 10 is basically a torrent, always updating, always needing to call borg central. The last 30 years have been a disgrace for anyone who could have seen what was possible in early 1990s era. Well before then. anyway, now it's fucked as badly as the Titanic. Bill Gates can go straight to hell and stay there.

As a geologist, I don't need to step anywhere near MicrosoftTM products.

Don't enroll in shitty courses (Or even colleges/universities if the situation is dire...).
