EDIT: The original topic was: A/B testing can feel like being gas lighted? because I wasn’t seeing it consistently. Now it seems like it’s a slow roll… I’ve seen it three times now.
Through the course of a given week I use probably something like 10 “devices”. (Where in this case devices may be real hardware or virtual machines.)
Earlier today I was connecting to a machine (via remote desktop) I had just powered on for the first time in about a week or so. During the login/connection process I got a full screen “pop-up” I have never seen before or since. It was basically a typical Microsoft passive/aggressive request fro me to stop using a local account and “wise up” to switch to an online Microsoft Account (MSA.) Had I know it was to be [seemingly] a one time event, I would have captured the screen.
Most of my devices are in a virtually identical configuration. I keep them up to date with current OS versions and patches. It seems very strange for it to have occurred on just one device. I now have to presume this is some sort of A/B test where a select number of units are requested to do something different. It kinda feels like Microsoft is gas lighting me. Anyone else experience anything like this (or maybe I really am going crazy)?
