Oh well, I guess as soon as Gentoo stabilizes most of KDE5 I'm outta here.

Strange that I'm not seeing this in Windows Update yet.
Will check again in a few days.

I found this info on it:
http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r30275533-/

The new Group Policy sounds nice, but on the other hand, that Win10 upgrade improvement crap is probably telemetry related, which is something that I definitely DON'T want!
Anyway, the registry trick described in the post below the one that I posted a link to, will probably do the same as that Group Policy.

Out of there I guess :)

But I'll need to keep Windows in a VM anyway, so I can continue doing x64 builds.

How To Geek has a bit of a pop at M$ Windows 10 for 'stealing' users bandwidth without notice.

I like it, is "stable", but hate the way is deigned.

Just really wanna get rid off that dithered windows 10 background on the login screen, also the new notification is annoying, specially the sound.

other than that, is pretty good.

QT is the culprit, qbittorrent simply uses the native QT functions.

Same again, qbittorrent calls the QT notification methods.

The Login Screen on windows doesn't have anything to do with QBitTorrent, either way founded a way to change it.

Besides resetting some stats and telling me that two programs (one of the was the bluetooth driver) are not compatible with this version of Windows 10 (although they actually are), there are not big changes that seem useful to me (Microsoft Edge).

Also running the RC of qB 3.3.0 is just delicious.  ::)
