Windows 7 mainstream Support ends on 13 January 2015.

What should we winfags do?

Why is that and why would you use it?

Get Windows 10
>>
Windows 8/8.1 is easy enough to get used to.
Windows 10 TP is even better, but I would still prefer to not use metro.
I'll probably just upgrade to 10 when it comes out.

I'm going to wait it out with Windows 7 until Microsoft pulls their head out of their asses. They HAVE to figure out that Metro was a huge mistake.

>Extended support for Windows 7 lasts until January 14, 2020, so users can expect to continue to receive free security updates, but not feature updates, for Windows 7 until that point

Don't worry, you can continue using Windows 7.

Yes you are.

Running an unpatched system is asking to get fucked. It probably has multiple critical vulnerabilities that have been well known for many months.

Why is it that XP got 14 fucking years, while the next best Windurrs OS only got 7 years or so of support?

And Windows 10? What the fuck? Didn't Windows 8.1 literally just get released? I feel so fucking out of the loop.

:(

Actually feels bad man, now I know how the XP users felt when it was announced that support was ending for them.

I tried Windows 8 and 8.1, couldn't really get into it. I know that technically I'm being a faggot with rose-coloued goggles, but they just don't feel or look the same, ya know?

Ehh, maybe it's time for me to finally make the jump to Debian or something. I hardly play vidya anymore anyway.

is true that a recent update fucked some crack and left pirated windows installs all fucked up?

GabeN said that linux is the future of gaming. Maybe it's because he couldn't get steam machines to run windows but if it's not that, the guy should know a thing or two.

Just install startisback and disable everything Metro relate.
This shit feels and looks way better than W7.
Anyways you still have till 2020 so i don't see any problems.

Pirated win7 here. All smooth. I don't think that microsoft gives a damn about people pirating their OS.
>>
>>45276050
Because Windows XP was never meant to get 14 years.

Windows has always been a 2-3 year cycle for major versions.
Longhorn dragged on and on, due to shit like WinFS which will never be ready and finally, 6 years after the release of XP they decided to call it quits, remove the non-working parts and release longhorn as-is, that was Vista...

Pretty much they don't. They know people mostly buy prebuilts that already have their OS installed on it. And they make a shitton off enterprise licensing, coupled with their fucking audits.

Most users are safe aside from any shady download of a cracked version to begin with.

Are you a fucking retard or something?

I'll probably get Windows 10 when I get an SSD. I've upgraded my CPU to an i5 4690K with 8GB of ram, and I can still feel the bloat. Probably because I'm running it on a HDD.

>>45276163
Your bait is of the worst quality when you call the person who invented PC gaming a fat pathetic man.

So is it possible to pirate windows 8.1 as easily as it is to do it with windows 7? Or should I actually buy a copy if I want to have access to all the features?

yes. It's very easy to pirate 8.1.

Tons of keys already made anyways, so why the hell not?

If I get a free upgrade to Windows 10, use that. If not, use Windows 7 anyway. I've been using Linux more and more for coursework recently anyway.

Why would you think you will ever get a free upgrade?

I dunno. Either Microsoft is kind enough to give me one, or I think my school has some kind of dream-something-or-other program with Microsoft that might give it to me. I'll figure it out later.

Does Daz's Loader still work for newer versions of Windows, or is there something better now?

>>45276146

Yeah, I guess. I was sort of hoping that 7 would stick around for a bit longer though, considering that it seemed that most people I know absolutely hated 8. My guess is that Windows 7 will still remain the defacto XP in businesses for the moment though.

Hell, I know of businesses around the place that are still using XP on certain machines...
>>
>>45276196
Stick to windows 7 until it dies or you find a game you want that won't run on it. If you decide to switch, do not pass GO and go directly to Win 10.

>>45276134
Right, so how come I haven't had people stealing monies from my bank account yet?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but in cases of hacking for profit purposes don't they tend to pick the lowest hanging fruit and exploit user retardation instead of system vulnerabilities? Pulling something like cryptolocker is much more profitable and reliable in the long run, than taking advantage of a exploit and potentially getting less dosh before it gets patched than selling it to Micorsoft.

I'm not trying to start an argument claiming that I'm in the right for not keeping my system up to date, I just have a sneaking suspicion you don't really know what you're talking about.

Hey man, it's all good.

I'm 19 and I'm not even going to university. I'm heading off to outback Australia to do a traineeship in electrical engineering instead.

Feels, uhhh... mediocre, to say the very least.

Pirate Windows 8.1 and install Classic Shell

There, you have a faster and more lightweight version of Windows 7. Easy.

I still don't like the interface, but I guess I'll get used to it with time.

Ever heard of botnets? A zombie computer could have taken part in thousands of directed DDoS attacks. People that control botnetns like to extort big companies to stop attacks.

Also, mining.

Also, using computers for nodes or as a jump bridge.

Ransomware is getting outdated. I could name you more if i tried.
>>
>>45276332
Tou answered how they get profit, but not how they get into my system. So again, I ask you, do they exploit system vulnerabilities or user retardation?
>>
>>45276050

Because it's a bad business model to have support for 10 year old things. Go talk to a web developer about supporting IE 6 right now and see if they can get through the conversation without looking like they want to commit suicide the whole time.
>>
>>45276358
The problem is, if you're going to drop support for old things, you'd better be damn sure the new things are better.

You shouldn't be dropping support for old things just to try and force people to adopt your shitty new things, because that's just going to make people say "fuck you I'm using Linux/Mac instead."

Not allowing windows to patch counts as user retardation. Therfore I'd say it's a good complination of both.

Yeah, I was pondering whether I should've included an inb4 of a version of your post. Nice to know you don't have any actual valid arguments.

Nice meme by the way.
>>
>>45276369

8.1 has a ton of performance upgrades over 7 and if you get 8.1 you have a free upgrade to 10 which is returning the start menu. There's no point in not upgrading to 10 when support for 7 ends outside of being a poorfag.
>>
>>45276394
>you don't have any actual valid arguments.
Arguements? It's a fact that if you don't patch windows unpatched exploits will be there forever. It was even mentioned in this thread. What else should have been said say to help you understand that?

Not sure if you're trying to derail the thread or you're just stupid.
>>
>>45276401

I'm guessing Windows 10 will be 300 dollars and come with five different editions?

Do you know how to monitor your system to see if it's not infected? If you don't mind doing this on a regular basis then whatever. Keep using windows the 7 intial release without installing any updates. What's the reason behind this anyway? Why would you defend doing it so much?

Extended support to 2020 shitdick
>>
either buy a new computer or replace with a linux flavour of your own choice...
>>
End of Life, End of Support, End of Service are for the most part little more than nonsensical FUD terms filled with fear and fallacy. Try running Windows XP SP3 or even Windows98SE with all available updates and the default firewall on behind a router. 99% chance you won't magically get hacked unless you intentionally run a virus/trojan/malware executable or go to really dumb sites with scripts enabled...

FACT, Microsoft has not made a decent operating system since NT 5.2 XP/Server 2003 it has only progressively gotten worse since Vista and only gaymers and babbies think otherwise, which btw you can "gayme" just fine using Most any 32bit or 64bit version of Windows or even Linux with WINE... Enjoy Windows 8 and 10 retard babbies!

Is a full screen start menu really that hard of a concept to grasp? I thought this was a technology board. Not a "help I'm too stupid to computer" support board.

So, what was the actual last feature update Windows 7 got?

In fact what's the last feature update Windows 8.1 got anyway as the most recent commercially released mainstream OS?

Unless it's shit like format support, that's hardly a feature really.
