What's /g/'s verdict on the Windows 10 Technical Preview?
>>
Just use OSX and dont waste your time on this shit
>>
>>45821150
>windows

It's shit
>>
I appreciate Windows 7 so much more after trying the technical preview. I won't be buying or uploading to it
>>
I hate that they made it a keylogger.
As software, it's okay. It unified the good points of Windows 8 with Windows 7's and added its own goodies.
If the rumors are true that you'll get a free license if you have Windows 8, I'll probably use it in the future for .net programming; Xamarin Studio sucks.
>>
>>45821171
>I hate that they made it a keylogger.
What?
>>
>>45821150
>PLEASE G, TELL ME WHAT TO THINK!
>I VALUE YOUR OPINION BECAUSE YOU ARE A NEET FAGGOT WHOSE PRIMARY CONCERN IS GETTING AN OS THAT HELPS HIDE YOUR CHEESE PIZZA!
>>
>>45821150
I think there's not nearly enough to go on to make any kind of conclusion. The consumer preview being launched next month should be a better marker.
>>
>>45821177
The preview logs everything it can, so I won't test it for serious work.
>>
Still bit buggy.

I'd stick to 7 if I were you honestly. If they fix up the bugs then it would be similar to 7. Also needs a way to disable the pesy windows store/apps.
>>
>>45821150
are you fucking retarded?

is it open source?
what license does it use?

fuckin moron
>>
>>45821200
>Also needs a way to disable the pesy windows store/apps.
Just literally don't use them you fucking retard.
>>
>>45821183
I'd recommend OS X for that. You can make encrypted DMGs and just mount them if you want.
>>
>>45821212
>>45821157
are you fucking retarded?

is it open source?
what license does it use?

fuckin moron
>>
Wait wtf is there really ads on the start menu? Really Microsoft?
>>
>>45821200
>Still bit buggy
Well, it is a preview...
>>
>>45821282
No, those are Live Tiles. And they're only there if you add them you retard.
>>
>>45821282
Those are Metro app icons.
>>
>>45821294
wintard trying to save face. I know an ad when I see one. Have fun with your malware OS.
>>
>>45821321
>I know an ad when I see one
Apparently you don't, you fucking retard. Those are Live Tile icons. They're third party apps. You install them at your volition and you can uninstall them as well.

They're literally only there if you want them to be.
>>
it's not linux
>>
>>45821282
those aren't ads you stupid faggot
>>
>>45821167
I just can't go back to Windows 7 after living with the Windows 8 flat theme for a year. All that glass looks disgusting to me now.
>>
>>45821337
Linux doesn't have native Adobe CC, so that's that.
>>
>>45821334
>Those are Live Tile icons.
You can call it anything you want. It's still advertising a 3rd party product aka an Ad.
>>
>>45821363
You literally install them YOURSELF. They're not there by default.
>>
>>45821363
>subscribe to feed
>omg my feed keeps advertising its articles to me

You're actually fucking retarded.
>>
>>45821363
>It's still advertising a 3rd party product aka an Ad.
It's just a visualized RSS feed you dipshit. It's literally no different. You - the user- choose to install those applications yourself. Because you're interested in them.

On top of that, you can disable the Live Tile updates so it's just a static icon. You are literally retarded. I say this not as an insult, but as a statement of fact.
>>
>>45821372
>>45821374
>implying ANYONE would "subscribe" to mint.com.

This is most definitely an ad.
>>
>>45821372

Save your energy. I've learned the hard way that you cannot educate the willingly ignorant. In order for someone to truly learn, they must first have the desire to learn.

That is definitely just a static icon you fuck wit.
>>
>>45821411
>implying ads need animation to be deemed an ad

are you retarded?
>>
>>45821417
Okay, this just reeks of b8 now.
>>
>>45821417
>an icon for an application is now an Ad
Listen Anon, the only one who is retarded around here is you.
>>
>>45821411
even if it's not an ad, who wants these ad-like objects in the FUCKING START MENU
>>
>>45821429
It's a "tile" for a 3rd party website. Sam as Trip Advisor. Stop lying to yourself, it's an ad.

Now repeat after me:
Windows 10 has ads and is a malware OS.
>>
Now that Windows 10 did an Ubuntu, what OS should I use now? OSX and ChromeOS seem fine.
>>
>>45821446
>This tile looks too much like an ad.
>I don't like it!
>CHANGE IT
>>
>>45821454
>It's a "tile" for a 3rd party website
It's for a native application you mentally retarded shit-licking faggot. It's an icon. That launches an application. It doesn't take you to a website. It's an icon, not an Ad. And this is the last time I'll be baited by some trolling faggot like yourself. Please, do us all a favor, and fucking kill yourself.
>>
>>45821454
kill you're selve
>>
>>45821474
Even so, it's a application for a 3rd party application (which probably needs a subscription to anyway) that's trying to sell you a service. It has nothing to do with Microsoft, so it's malware.
>>
Looks like what 8 was suppose to be
The consumer preview is coming out next month and will be a better judge of what 10 will be.
>>
>>45821471
What's the deal with boxxy being kinda cute and making good points? I just remembered her being some meme on /b/ and now she's like... real.
>>
>>45821531
Some other girl called shoeonhead or something
>>
>>45821531
That's not boxxy
>>
I don't care if these things are ads or not, but they're fucking disgusting
why can't microsoft at least the icons?
>>
>>45821551
You can turn them off and then theyre just big color boxes with an icon in them
or pin on the left for none touch screen bullshit
>>
I guess there is no start screen anymore or at least you can switch it on/off?. It maybe time to upgrade from Win7
>>
>>45821531
That's Shoe0nHead, not Boxxy. They do indeed look like twin sisters separated at birth though. Also, she uses 4chan a lot and vehemently dislikes SJWs.

That one.
>>
>>45821282
Glad at least one anon recognizes ads when he sees them.

Windows 10: Advertisements in START menu, Not even once.
>>
>>45821551
You can hide them. I like them. I also happen to like the start screen.
>>45821581
It's still there if you want to enable it.
>>
>>45821222
Your mom doesn't have a license but still open source.

Fucking moron.
>>
>>45821334
>If I name the ads "live tiles" (which just means "dynamic as space" then no one will think of it as an ad

hahaha, I bet they are enabled by default too because the average minister will just think it's her "life tile" telling her about the new discounts at sears
>>
>>45821471
The difference is that those are actually ads. That trip advisor thing, even if it's an app, is a paid plug by Microsoft. They didn't put it in their because they thought it was the best way to book a hotel, they put it in there because trip advisor paid to put it there.
Please stop ignoring the point, that sort of bullshit doesn't work here /v/irign.

Shit wont be finished until 10.1 like 8.1 and 7 service pack 1. Just let autists spaz out because of removable live tiles

Hooray for retard who do not know how to uninstall things
>>
>>45821353

It's like when inmates get out of jail after doing 20 years and just want to go back because the world is scary
>>
Why would anyone place a verdict on an OS before it is released? Sounds like saying a car is shit when only the body is finished.

With that being said:
>Closed source
>Botnet
>Ads
>Confirmed Keylogger
>Not linux/GNU
>Not *BSD
>Not Gentoo
>>
>>45821588
Boxxy has a more pronounced jaw.
>>
>>45821308

even worse.
>>
Too heavy for a netbook, and that's with all the eye candy turned off. Feels slugish and the lack of option to configure touchpad gestures (I really need a mid button) takes me back to my loonix installation after 20 minutes

>find a chick and have sex with ther
So let me get this straight, this fucking guy isn't even fucking 10, and he wants to have sex.
>>
so besides having ads in the start menu, is there really anything worthwhile in this OS?
How is it anything but a slight reskin with a start menu addon ripoff?
>>
>>45821150
Looks good so far, too bad I can't try it on my main computer(CPU missing that fucking NX support)

That was disappointing.

But thanks for delivering!

Anon, why not just download one of the theme packs which emulates the Windows 8 flat look on Windows 7? That's what I did, and it's all the goodness of 7 without the issues of 8.
>>
>>45822081
Which issues anon?
>>
>>45821594
0/10

>>45822018
I would hope so, considering it was made for low voltage tablets. I've heard great things about 8.1 performance wise.

there are plenty of good fakes if you want them. Use bing for best results

I'm going to buy it as soon as it launches. I use Windows for work anyways and from what I've tried on W10 tech preview it's pretty good.

Upgrade beyond Windows 10.

it's a fucking alpha

I won't pay a shitload of money on a computer that can't even run games properly since it has workstation components. I'm not a video producer or 3D modeller or some shit

All joking aside, most of OSX is actually open source. A majority of what is closed is the UI itself.

Why on Earth would you want to game on a PC anyways? There is nothing but a bunch of shitty console ports and Steam is shit.

User-upgradable.
Graphics and physics calculating power limited only by your budget.
Multiple displays.
Use any kind of peripheral you want.

>>45823522
Fair enough. Guess I'm just a little disheartened by the current state of PC gaming. It is easy to forget all the pro's.

Don't get me wrong, if macs were cheaper I would buy one instantly. I love them, the font rendering, the UI, everything.
