Folks, imagine it's May 18, 1998 for a minute or two: ==>> JUSTICE DEPARTMENT FILES ANTITRUST SUIT AGAINST MICROSOFT FOR UNLAWFULLY MONOPOLIZING COMPUTER SOFTWARE MARKETS

An excerpt from Attorney General Janet Reno:​
"The Internet is an immensely popular medium for communication, commerce, and the information flow of the 21st century. No firm should be permitted to use its monopoly power to develop a chokehold on the browser software needed to access the Internet."

Now fast-forward almost 24 years to the present and I can guarantee the present left-leaning Admin will sit and watch as MS repeats their behavior as it was prior to '98 but THIS TIME will do nothing, because they are as left-leaning, power-hungry, money-grabbing and privacy-invading as their partner in crime....Microsoft.

So what’s the issue?
(yawn) Clearing the cobwebs....
What is what issue......W11 login? One drive. unlinking PC from One Drive worked. But the part of the Browser issue was being on the wrong Net trying to sign in. Then The message, ( once inside the Amcrest Gui) was something " your browser does not support this function or something... when it tried display the camera images/feeds on screen. But whatever.
Until I get my mind synced up,,,,I'm not sure what's what...
I swap the single ethernet cord and the single USB WiFi adapter between 3-4 devices and get myself all screwed up. :)

It shouldn't be allowed. MS are forcing people into being montiored with Windows 11 / 10 Updates.

I still click skip on the finish setting up your accoutn later page but for how much longer? Once that disappears and you have to log into yuor pc with a MS account, MS are going to be monitoring everything you are doing for marketing or other purposes.

Surely someone somewhere will challenege this for privacy issues via a Government Agency as they're the only ones who cann afford to take on MS?

I personally find it unacceptable that I'm forced to install updates I don't want on my own PC. Who exactly owns it? Would it be acceptable to people if you bought a house and the developer decided to come in and redocrate it to how he wanted every so often? I doubt so.
Ah, but you don't own the OS on your system, nor should you expect any right to privacy. You are leasing it from MS, with the annual "Pay-to-play" program. They now can dictate when, where, how often, how much, to whom, what color, etc, etc, etc and you will like it and you will accept it as normal. You will store your files exactly where they tell you to store them and they will watch you while you do it. They will look at every single byte that moves within their system and may record it for use later as part of their training experience. They will share that "experience" with all their friends and fellow thieves, discreetly concealed as "third party" vendors.....and you will like it. What's the old saying? "The beatings will continue until the morale improves".

This discussion makes me more glad I'm still on win 7 with updates off for the past few years. I run linux on a couple of laptops, but apps like smartPss keep me tied to windows on the desktop.

Microsoft is gonna keep fucking around with their OS and customizing to suit their ransomewear software rental scheme and the open-source Raspberri PI is gonna sneak in under their radar and be able to run standard office product and video feeds, all for $50.00., truly making Microsoft a boated, high priced OS that nobody will want anymore.

Lets hope so....
"Microsoft purchases Raspberry Pi for 6.8 million. MS CEO Satya Nadella says the newly acquired company will be re-tooled to make smart office chairs and robotic vacuums with AI."

Let's also hope the above never comes true....
