The zoo needed pc’s as some of them are well over ten years old and showing signs of hardware issues like forgetting the time** and being a bit slow with other regular seek human movements that persuaded the zoo to flash some cash on stuff..
Naturally i go to a site that i can buy to order rather than buy hp (my blog) or another brand get what we need without the crap copy of windows which is a lot cheaper than in stock and off the shelf from online retailers.
Deselecting windows 10 (my blog) resulted in the zoo shaving £100 off the bill (converted tp usd 130.00 at time i wrote this. So next time you wonder what you could do with an spare $130 makes using open source software a lot of sense.
Apparently I also read that Microsoft are putting adverts everywhere in windows 10 so in addition to buying mafia insurance* from microsoft they also plaster adverts over it.
I am fascinated that people pay microsoft for this software via hardware vendors who i assume do it for laziness and some very shady microsoft sales staff.
Sure we have to install something on the hardware, but even windows needs setting up.
