Beta Testing Done Wrong

Beta Testing Done Wrong

My Take

Send help! I’m being held hostage by Microsoft. More specifically the Windows 11 Beta program. The betas are making my computer unstable, and that alone is infuriating, but can be expected. What’s really pissing me off is that the only way to get out of the Beta program is to wait until another release from Microsoft or format your computer. What the heck. That’s not a very user-friendly experience. What’s worse, Dell machines make it a real pain to reinstall Windows. I don’t know exactly why, but I’m having a bear of a time formatting too. So I’m being held hostage to technology and Microsoft is to blame, in my opinion. Now, I’m not clear of some responsibility. I willingly joined the beta, I agree. But it should be easy to leave the beta. This is not easy. I can hear lots of people in the distance saying go to a Macintosh or Linux machine. The problem is that I’m so far in the Windows ecosystem I really just want Windows 11 to work properly.

I know a few people who love the beta program and are having no issues. I’m looking at you Rob.

But I’m having a terrible time.
