If they’re missing basic problems like this the solution is not more telemetry, the solution is qa. Not even better qa, just start with basic qa. Because right now they’re just doing nothing and treating their paying customers as alpha testers. I don’t quite understand why people accept it.

Some of the slowdown should have been noticed by QA. But most of this slowdown occurs when you have used your machine for long enough to accumulate 4 MB of File Explorer history. Telemetry is the perfect tool for catching this sort of real in-the-field problem. More QA is also important.

Why does the average person buy a computer ?

my small sample say "no more post office, everything is online, so I .. need something"
