Summer is still 5 months away, what are you doing here?

And? It works great with my old PC. Why should update to a dumbed-down windows that uses all of my resources to spy even more on me?
>>
>>52274825
Theyre really desperate to get anyone using their piece of bloated botnet. Im staying till 2020 but now im actually worried of Microshit itself developing all kind of virus for W7. I'll jump ship and stay with Mint if that happens.

>>52274939
Because it's swiss cheese
Use Xubuntu or something

Enjoy your unpatched vulnerabilities.

When you get crytolockered don't come crying to us like the last guy who did that.
>>
the thing is, due to windows 7's popularity, third party companies are sure to offer extra antivirus, malware and spyware long after microsoft's extended support ends, because everyone knows that nobody wants to upgrade to 8 or 10, they're both god-awful. windows 8 had too many shitty design choices and windows 10 is the clunkiest fucking thing i have EVER USED
>>
>>52274841
I'm going to use it as long as it still has sercuirty updates and developers support it.
After that it's full time linux instead of just having it on the laptop.
Hopefully by then all my desire for fun will degrade like the rest of you, then I won't play so many video games.

Unleash the power of the botnet.

Is Debian a good alternative to Windows OS?

You mean crank it to full power instead of half.

>I don't want Microsoft spying on me, so I'll let everybody else spy on me instead! :)

Good plan, genius. At least upgrade to fucking Vista. None of the botnet that's been inserted into 7 and above stretches back that far.
>>
Ill be switching to Linux when windows 7 is not supported anymore. Still have four more years.
>>
>>52275181
They will file for changing the company name to Skynet ®
>>
The "don't use windows 7 cause it isn't safe" bullshit came from Microsofts PR department. Not even making it up. Google it.
>>
Are they really just trying to get people to switch over to Win10?
>>
>>52275486
It killed a man, what do you think?
Install Slackware.
>>
Welp time to switch to linux
>>
>>52275729
Of course. The more people that switch to Windows 10, the more money Microsoft make through their data harvesting. They know full well that this first year, when the upgrade is still free, is by far their best chance of getting people to switch in the medium term, so they're going all out with the FUD campaign.

john oliver pls go

Meh it's just bait so normies upgrades to Windows 10 because muh warnings

I use a Firewall where I have to whitelist connections to the Internet. What now?

>>52275238
Cryptolocker is as good as data loss. This is why we have backup plans to deal with data loss.
>>
>>52275859
If you're retarded enough to still be using XP, you are not trustworthy enough to operate a security whitelist.
>>
>>52275803
Would you prefer Microsoft say nothing about what they plan to do with Windows 7 or would you prefer they say it publicly?
>>
>>52275747
Slackware was developed by Patrick Volkerding. Is he a jew? That would entail loyalty to the enemy of the free people. If not, maybe he's next to "commit suicide". THEY really want the development of unadulterated software to stop.
>>
>>52275884
False.
>>
This is computer-terrorism, plain and simple.

Mr Obama, the ball is in your court.
>>
Oh no the chief shill for botnet 10 says upgrade better do it goy
>>
>>52275901
We knew the end of life date for 7 long before they started pushing the botnet. And they haven't actually said anything about the botnet features that they've backported into 7, just quietly edged them in via WU.
>>
>>52275981
Apparently not enough people know. There are people who need a monthly reminder about the end of life.

This is proprietary software, and proprietary software is the life you wanted.

I'm curious. What's Microsoft's selling point on Windows 8/10? I'm borrowing a friends computer right now and using 8. The only thing different from 7 is the start menu is gone and replaced with a few tiles of programs I don't use and advertisements. That and the control panel is as closed to hidden as possible. Performance wise it is identical.

I'm saving up my money for a new desktop. I don't see any reason why I shouldn't make it a Core 2 quad, with pci passthrough, one dirt cheap gpu, and one medium power gpu. I don't see any reason why I shouldn't run linux with a VM running windows on a pci passthrough for gaymen.
>>
>>52275884
XP is way more useful than Linux on old hardware and better for legacy work in general

As long as you're not a retard, not making yourself a target, and especially if you use the POSReady hack to deal with blatant 0-days, you'll be fine. If you actually give a shit about security you shouldn't be using Windows anyway, so your point is pretty much moot.
>>
>>52276163
XP is useless if you have any hardware newer than 2010.
>>
>>52274825
I think you should go back to leddit
>>
>>52275608
this.

given how fucking full retard microsoft has gone in pushing its windows 10, makes me think that once MS has enough people switched over, the jewing will commence full bore.

the way its being handled screams of epic levels of bullshit waiting for us down the road.

I agree, I'm in no way advocating its use on anything later than early Core 2-era systems.
