Do you mean literally?
Like my keyboard and monitor are what matter to me?
Or is it more figuratively, like your message is in front of me so you matter to me?
People here are beginning to say strange things, like us flirting and moving in together so I don't know what to believe anymore

Some things need to be unsaid a certain way to see the shape that casts the shadow:
we conspired to create a virtual reality,
to build a nest of misunderstanding with
fragments of false memories, bits of woe
and joy veneered with faux rainbow shiny
oh, the beauty of our first egg, mottled
with fires of iridescent gems: a perfect
echo of imperfections erased in a mirror
of self-delusion's simulations of sanity
in this unpixelated bliss we conjured: a,
subject-object dichotomy gave us giggles;
half-dead, half-alive, cats serenaded us
with fugues of quantum entangled screech
ah, wondrous eternity when our first egg
hatches, and, we are chicky's first meal
After all those complained about W10, I just got the sentence to prepare for it on my work computer...
I understand that not everybody had the bad experience, just that I have no way to know on which side I will land...
I was asking to install Fedora with W10 in VM, but they turned me down...

Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Personally, I wouldn't worry too much. I have access to a total of 10 computers at work and home, all except one running Windows 10 (some Home, some Pro). None of them have had any problems that were traced to the O/S.
I suspect that many (most?) of the problems are dues to either faulty hardware or bad drivers. You know, the same things that caused problems with Windows 95, 98, ME, NT 4, 2000, XT, 7, 8.x …
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.

My home W10 desktop updated at the weekend without a hitch. Only problem is a non-kosher driver for an obscure mobile phone that I had to install manually as there is no proper driver has stopped working. It might just need another manual install. I have not had any issue with the Windows ecosphere since I built the PC years ago with the first release of W7 and everything since (inc upgrade to W10 in conjunction with moving to SSD) has been done via automated upgrades.
My wife's W10 laptop is a shop/manufacturer (HP) built version of W10 which came pre-installed with 'extras' - that has had no end of problems. Draw your own conclusions.
It took me a lot longer to get the b+ tree going, and i even made it thread safe.
It's not a performer though. It seems my initial conclusion was correct, that a B+ tree is really only good if it's file backed because it limits access to the leaf nodes (where file seeking happens) and it has a forward or double linked list to scan through the leaves sequentially without having to traverse the tree - an optimization of a bplus tree i've found questionable, but it depends on the height of the tree i guess.
So now I'm off to make a thread safe version of Dictionary that will (perhaps) take null keys.
I don't like concurrentdictionary because it doesn't explose IDictionary<tkey,tvalue> but rather a weird one off interface that you can't wrap with IDictionary<tkey,tvalue>
Once I have that I can make a thread safe option for my JSON library.
And once I have that, I can share cache between all threads. Woo. More first order cache hits, less memory usage.

When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
