At least Facebook, Google etc. don't have the audacity to charge you $100+ for what data they steal.
...AND they are upfront about what they steal.
Whereas Microshaft.......
Spyware Platform 10 is a lot worse than Ransomware

Ransomeware can steal your data, then encrypt your copy until a ransom is paid

Microsoft charges you $100 for their malware, then steals data from your computer, deletes "your" personal documents with their updates, and sells what they stole to their "Trusted" partners, and you never get your data back

All perfectly Legal of course

You agreed to the terms!

Wannacry attacked unpatched PCs and it costed ~$300 to get unlock key from hackers. How about that?
MS has provided the patches few months before the attack happened.
Previous malwares attacks always took victims of unpatched systems, e.g. Linux openssl heartbleed, linux shell shock, windows sasser, nimda, etc.
Windows differentiate security-and-bug patches and feature update. Never postpone the former one.

May revert to windows 7 or linux as windows 10 is failing miserably lately
If you dont install the latest security patches, Linux is not secure too. You can check on Linux openssl heartbleed, linux shell shock, etc.

Same. I've got about 400 PCs under my watch and in the last 10 years, I've had maybe 2 issues with updates, and it only affected a single PC. I must have also gotten really lucky. =/

People finding their user folders moved/deleted though? That really sucks.
You must be running windows enterprise editions that are usually has slower updates than the personal home/pro editions, which results EE has less bug caused by new features.

We do not. 99% Windows10pro. It is a little (read:a lot) backwards here, but I work with what I got.
