What do you think
I'm super scared right now
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.
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
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.
Is Debian a good alternative to Windows OS?
>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.
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.
I use a Firewall where I have to whitelist connections to the Internet. What now?
Cryptolocker is as good as data loss. This is why we have backup plans to deal with data loss.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Richard Stallman proudly admits to being of Jewish ancestry.
I already have one of my SSD's partitioned for Linux ready and waiting. Once the shit hits the fan I'm switching and wiping.
Let's all get cosy while this all blows over, eh lads?
