(Thought we needed a separate thread from Windows 10.)

Microsoft blocks even more customization apps in Windows 11 version 24H2
https://www.neowin.net/news/microsoft-block...1-version-24h2/

Note that this is about the Insider Preview version. It will be interesting to see if it remains in the public release, and for even more programs in the future (with the end goal of only allowing programs from the Microsoft Store).

Shuck. But of course, it isn't extraordinary to limit users of an early Beta. If that is what it is.

Don't know what to do. I'm not that fond of Linux either. And I don't want to leave all my lovely programs. Last I ran Linux it wasn't the same to run Windows programs in that environment.

"Stealing everything you’ve ever typed or viewed on your own Windows PC is now possible with two lines of code — inside the Copilot+ Recall disaster."

Nice. So is this a mandatory feature?

I suppose it will be installed by default in the future, maybe also enabled by default? Then maybe you can disable it, until Windows re-enables it again by accident. laugh.gif

Update on the Recall preview feature for Copilot+ PCs
https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience...or-copilot-pcs/

Alas it doesn't say if you can avoid installing it in the first place, or if you're "allowed" to delete it.

Anyway, assuming they are just trying to be helpful, wouldn't such a database of snapshots become giganormous?

Adobe is also doing it.

And here in Sweden some are pushing surveillance cameras with face recognition - just to be used to fight organized crime, of course. We are very close to that chip under the skin now.

True, apparently the screenshots are deleted after text has been read from them and stored in a much smaller database.

That's only what to expect from using cloud services... Microsoft of course also has access to documents and images that end up on their OneDrive, but this Recall thing also gives them access to everything else.

George Orwell's 1949 dystopian novel "Nineteen Eighty Four"
unnervingly predicts this frightening situation with Big Brother
and the Thought Police.

Good news for me though, is that at eighty years of age I will
most likely be pushing up the daises before the bastards come
for me!

Yes, it's almost here now. Here they also lobby for allowing surveillance cameras with face recognition now. Only to be used to fight organized crime, of course... IPB Image
