One does not need a computer techie if one does not want to use Windows 10 as Microsoft ships it, except for changes in user settings, then one should not use it at all.
I totally agree with you on this.
If people do not like what MS is doing then there is only one option, Delete windows and use Mac or Linux.
And I've been saying this all along. I also tell my clients who are about to switch from PC to Mac, or change OSes on a PC, that this is not a proposition to be taken lightly (and I don't care which direction they're going).
People have no idea how difficult it is to go through a period where virtually every action you're used to taking like it was breathing has to be thought about. In the case of any OS change, most users have been using software that is specific to the OS in question for the most part.
Changing platforms requires careful consideration, and is sometimes the right thing to do. At other times one needs to "get over it" and realize that one's own personal dislike for a specific change or set of changes, no matter how intense, just doesn't justify what is necessary to jump ship. It is never easy, no matter who tries to sell it as such.
I say you are completely wrong in most of the above, and I take the best real life example available to me - ME !
I am a computer dummie, extremely intolerent of any computer problems, and do not intend to further my capabilities so far as computers are concerned, ie, I intend to remain a computer dummie.
As detailed in the 'My Linux Experience' thread, I found the switch to Linux Mint 17.2 to be VERY EASY, pleasurable, satisfying, and problem free. I got my mind AND MY FINGERS around it in HOURS, not days or weeks, and haven't looked back. Same applies to all the associated software that comes with it.
My euphemism for this, is that it's like stepping out of servitude into the sweet air of freedom.
And I have been a Windows user from inception - for over 35 years perhaps.
So what you say, in my estimation, is manifestly wrong on most counts.
