I wish that were true. My church uses Zoom for those unable to attend in
person and only the Windows client has the "Use Original Sound" feature
that prevents Zoom from distorting music (ostensibly to block feedback)
so badly that it becomes unbearable. We HAVE to use Windows. I purchased
a new computer with Windows pre-loaded. It took longer to get that
pre-loaded operating system booted up properly and with all updates
installed than it took me to take a bare-metal server and install
openSUSE and Nextcloud via USB, while also downloading updates during
the install. Pre-loaded Windows is a not a feature.


The souls of emperors and cobblers are cast in the same mold. The same
reason that makes us wrangle with a neighbor creates a war betwixt princes.
Michel de Montaigne, essayist (1533-1592)
