You are conflating the original "duct" tape name with the product
Duck Tape that uses the similarity in sound to establish a brand
identity. In the military we called the OD green version "100 mile
an hour tape" because it repaired canvas and stood up to wind but the
original use was sealing ducts in heating-ventilation air-conditioning
My OCD sees your OCD and raises you CDO... in alphabetical order, because
that is how it must be.
I took the plunge and installed Windows 10 as well, mostly because I'm the techy guy in my little group and the others will install it anyway so I figured I'd better get out ahead of it.
If you're worried about the spying like I was, this 'Destroy Windows 10 Spying' [^]utility works pretty good. It's mostly firewall rules and re-routing IP addresses in the HOSTS file...it gets updated frequently...wouldn't surprise me if Google or Apple was financing it
Windows 10 is working fine with all my programs and hardware. I never much cared about the Start menu (I use shortcuts on my desktop for everything) but the new one with the tiles looks pretty neat. I haven't used Cortana and have no plans to...I gave up on the idea of talking to computers back in the 90's with my SoundBlaster card's voice commands...I find talking to computers very wearing.
What's old is new again, I guess. The amount of money I spent on SoundBlasters over the years! The amount of time I spent tweaking IRQs and editing CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT! Now it's all just throw away features on motherboards.
I'm holding out for a computerized doctor that can prescribe medications
You need to look closer at Cortana. It doesn't require talking to it. It does a lot of good stuff. I really appreciate how fast it finds stuff. Like, who knows where Add Remove Programs is in the settings? But just type "add remove" and you will have a choice.
So after the last Windows 10 update debacle and with this situation with Edge, I made my decision and i'm very sure. I want wait as long as possible! I will update to Windows 10, but not earlier as in coming sommer. Of course not also without a new big update that works.
Unfortunately I have no a real choice! Because there is no enough "Grab+Drag" (the FF addon) like functionality or solution in Chrome, nothing in IE/Edge. So is Firefox the only choice to me.
Something about which we often break our head:
"In the name of the Compiler, the Stack, and the Bug-Free Code. Amen."
My only problem with Edge is when downloading a file with an unknown file extension. It won't let me change the extension back to what it should be in the first place, instead downloading as a .zip. Changing the file extension after download is not an option as it corrupts the file. I used to use IE, but have finally come to my senses and used it to download Chrome!
