1 The last time I created an AWS instance with the default security policy, it blocked everything but inbound SSH, with sshd configured to require the supplied key. I don't even think you get ICMP by default.

2 Most browsers that I'm familiar with that have a tab-switching key-binding use Ctrl-Tab.  Why would the idiots at MS (who are just reskinning chrome, ffs) bind it to a window manager binding?  I mean, it's even their own damned window manager binding they're clobbering. Oh, right, idiots gonna idiot.

4 Hell, they forced Edge on to my Win7 machine and forced it to reboot overnight. And once I logged it it pushed me into a setup your Microsoft Account screen with no normal exit or cancel.

(I cancelled and uninstalled Edge immediately thereafter.)

5 Yeah, the Edge install is absurdly aggressive.

7 It makes spell-checking these posts basically useless.  If I turn it on I just get a sea of angry underlines.

8 Remember three years ago when you could have two cores in a laptop?
I'd love something like the Zephyrus G14 or maybe that LG linked here the other day (but I'd prefer that to have TB so I could put an eGPU if I was feeling crazy) but my Spin 5 from a couple of years ago, with the quad core Kaby Lake refresh is still pretty decent, although obviously it's nowhere near as fast as my desktop.)
