. and some are still wondering why I have put it on my to-do list to change my entire home computer system to move away from the Windows ecosystem, even if it means that I have to adapt a different desktop that has a substantial number of its own bugs. But I have made the decision that I will do it, slowly, to move away from exactly this type of interference with my ownership of my own PC.

Somewhat ironically, it is only Windows Search that has kept me on Windows. The alternatives on Linux are all very poorly integrated into the UI and have never offered the feature set that I'd need to use them seriously.

As a user of Windows Search for decades, I've never understand why people don't like it. Excluding this new Git issue (where it seems they have intentionally hobbled it!), I've always thought that Windows Search was one of the best, fastest, smoothly running, fully integrated, search tools. However, I have noticed that Microsoft have been further dumbing down the UI in File Manager in recent Windows versions. This has negatively impacted its usability.

But I still can't move to Linux-based OSs since they're UI integration is so poor and also, in some cases, lacking in capabilities.
