If you guys hate windows 10 so much because "muh botnet", and, why don't we just make a community fork of this? Or just use the registry hack that allows you to continue getting updates until 2019?
Plus, if it was going to be done, it should of been done a while ago while software could still run flawlessly on XP. Lots of catch-up to do if XP was the chosen fork point.
Your'e scared of Microsoft using your PC as part of a botnet so your two solutions are to either use a hacked version of an outdated, unsupported operating system created by anonymous people on an image board or to use it with unofficially supported updates available through altering the registry?
5 star plans, OP.
this. XP boots straight in ten seconds on a dualcore thinkpad. same lightweight Mint + XFCE takes 25-30.
really i never had any issue. i do regular backups, i occasionally play games that runs pretty well on that PC.
what else? i stopped giving a fuck, all the newest versions of windows are garbage, and Linux isn't always stable.
i know too many people who are like
>"shit they cancelled the support for proprietary drivers and now i'm running 1024x768... but it's fine they care about us... what's your distro Anon?"

linux is good on a server, but dsesktop distros are pure shit anon, only a workaround for people who just need an office suite, a web browser, chat and read mails. that's all. nothing else.
occasionally it just breaks, you turn on your PC and you got that
shell. for no reason.
every linux user has to deal with it.
It's losing support to newer versions of windows.
It's true, happened to me several times. Mint, Debian, xubuntu. all comes at some point either it stops booting, and crashes. Either it will receive an update and nothing works anymore, and entire nights trying to discuss with more clueless, so-called Linux Geeks.
Linux's motto is :"it's fine, because it works on my PC, I don't give a shit it might be your fault"
At this point I completely understand why the regular guy doing just office/business stuff, web and watching videos on a PC will move back to Windows XP!
It just works.
It is no longer updated.
It will never change.
It barely changed since 2001.
I really think the day Linux will be at the height of Windows XP; a big step will be done. In fact, I'm trying now to find recommendations for an old laptop where I could use it and keep it. I am fucking tired of Linux, I used it for a decade and I can't take it anymore.
I've been using Ubuntu since 8.10, with auto-updates on, and have since updated that same install continually to 15.10. I have never once gotten a grub rescue prompt; and I've been using this same exact OS install since 2008. I've even changed hardware during this time, yet every fucking time it boots.
So yeah, you're retarded
It might be possible in the future.
can we please just put this to bed you fucking neo-luddites. Why the fuck is there even a thread about this?
>registry hacks to keep an unsupported OS crippling on
like, fuck guys, just move on
you guys love it, don't you?
>My computer has no problem
>It works on MY computer I don't see the problem
What the fuck, when a fellow linux user the minimum shoumld be to understand that not all users and not all PCs are the same!
I'm not op, but would you bother to tell me why linux fuckin software refuses to install itself because the older version of a fuckin library isn't found? I already have a newer version of the glibc and centreon won't install the newest version of it's engine BECAUSE IT IS TOO FUCKIN NEW?
HOW FUCKIN RETARDED IS THAT?
You're asking the baby ducks to leave the only pond they think they understand. They're so afraid they can't even move up to a newer version of Windows, let alone anything else. Let them keep XP. They won't be using computers for much longer anyway.
You have Down's Syndrome. Sell your computer.
Could you point out where and how I'm samefagging ?
i think you're posting in the wrong thread m8
>calling linux loonix
>in a thread
>about windows xp registry hacks to keep it running
fuck /g/, what is going on these days. Can't you NEETS just leave?
No, your biggest mistake was attempting to use a computer when you're still unsure where to plug in the keyboard. Your second biggest mistake was coming to /g/ to tell us about it.
Ah the linux kids. No clue about the real world but feeling totally superior because they can solve problems that don't even exist on professional operating systems.
My question was still not answered.
HOW CAN IT BE THAT A SOFTWARE ON LINUX CAN'T BE INSTALLED BECAUSE MY VERSION OF GLIBC IS NEWER THAN THE ONE THE SOFTWARE KNOWS. ARE YOU FUCKIN KIDDING ME?
>get completely blown the fuck out
>better meme all over that little kiddo xD
>act like I've blown him the fuck out
>that surely means it's true r-right guys?
>implying samefag despite being my first post and the unique ip counter incrementing
this is why people think you're too stupid to use a pc
>Using shitty software. Not even citing the source.
But even in this scenario, it's a terrible choice to use an obsolete operating system like windows XP.
It's like using a fork to eat your soup because the spoon is slightly bent.
>Implying I suggested you were samefagging
Do you have a license for moving goaldposts freetard?
>act like I've blown him the fuck out
you didn't suggest it, you flat-out said it
are you sure you're supposed to be on the pc?
>accuse someone of samefagging
>get called a retard, again
what argument? i'm not the anon who assblasted you, despite your accusations.
>i didn't accuse you of samefagging
>okay, i did
>i'm so confused
>something something freetard
i don't know what to tell you kid, lol
i'm just here to laugh at you and post pictures
>i don't know what to tell you kid, lol
Of course you did, your brain got stumped just like your OS. The freetard brain has been proven to not be able to process data from multiple sources at once.
>you knew what to tell me
>except you didn't
>but you knew
anyway, i hope you eventually find a gadzooks/looney distro that doesn't confuse you too much
lol, that's a pic of that retard's pc. no wonder he couldn't figure out gnuglix
the latest versions of Firefox that run on 2K are still perfectly usable and it still has a pretty good software library
you can also hack it up to make it more compatible with later XP era software if you really want
