This ZD|Net article's right on. Navigating the frequent and massive Windows 10 Updates is simply "burdensome". And the new features aren't that compelling. Time to re-think the strategy, MSFT!
Another interesting insight from the article, "it's widely known that Microsoft let go a bunch of its Windows testers back in 2014, substituting flighting and new unit testing procedures in their stead. I don't think Microsoft will reverse this course and bring back testing as a separate discipline. But they could improve their testing procedures and supporting infrastructure as part of a return to a focus on fundamentals."
I've worked at large companies that effectively eliminated QA engineers on behalf of "Agile Stretch". It generally doesn't work well! Developers have a different mindset and focus than Testers, and the end quality often reflects that. You really don't want to go there! 😮

$67 Billion end-to-end? That's in the same range as the proposed "Border Wall" 😱 It's estimated that just $8B is required to upgrade our nationwide air traffic control system to better safety standards. Lately, I feel like I'm living in some weird parallel universe! 😨
Getting all the external I/O connections hooked up to your MacBook can be a daunting task! This nice tethered dock by Henge Docks provides a nice all-in-one solution via USB 3.1 for around $199 MSRP. When you consider that a single Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet adapter goes for around $30, the price tag to "Solve Everything" may not be that bad.
