    why? All its gonna do is give Microsoft root. In the most popular versions of Linux Canonical has root. In mobile devices like android google has root and in iphones Apple has root. If you want to get root yourself you need to jailbreak them. If you are a Windows user I wouldn't worry about it.

    April first was a few days ago. I suggest you be a bit more skeptical of anything you read for the next few weeks. Then remain skeptical from there on.
    Note that being skeptical doesn't mean denying everything, it means using your brain in conjunction with reading.

    I read the comments too, no reason for sarcasm.

    I have windows ten on a laptop, it keeps sending me pictures of beautiful places that I am never likely to visit. Must be made for elites that have nothing better to do than travel around.
