What a time to be alive...via The Seattle Times:

A few days after Microsoft released Windows 10 to the public last year, Teri Goldstein’s computer started trying to download and install the new operating system.

The update, which she says she didn’t authorize, failed. Instead, the computer she uses to run her Sausalito, Calif., travel-agency business slowed to a crawl. It would crash, she says, and be unusable for days at a time.

“I had never heard of Windows 10,” Goldstein said. “Nobody ever asked me if I wanted to update.”

When outreach to Microsoft’s customer support didn’t fix the issue, Goldstein took the software giant to court, seeking compensation for lost wages and the cost of a new computer.

There was never any hope in avoiding it, Erik Flom. Brutal truth of the matter is that when Windows 10 updates want to install, they will f**cking install. Tis life, man.

Thanks to the universal version of the Dosbox app, YouTube user vcfan was able to get Windows 95 running on an Xbox One. Some out there are already stepping forward to contest the usefulness of all this, but hey, if you can run X-Wing, Dark Forces, and Duke Nukem 3D, then it's definitely not worthless!
