Forced updates, no privacy, advertising in-OS, all you have to know about 10. I'm going to switch my personal harddrives to a Linux system if 10 becomes necessary for gaming. Then it becomes true, a 4K gaming station just for 1 game series.
>>52317952 >it is free No, it isn't fucking free. It's an operating system that people have to purchase to acquire.
The fact that Microsoft is trying to get more devices running older versions of Windows to switch to Windows 10 by offering an upgrade for free doesn't change the fact that it's still an operating system which must be purchased. If you buy a new computer and want Windows 10, you will pay Microsoft in order to get Windows 10. If you want to upgrade your PC, which includes changing the motherboard, you're going to have to pay Microsoft for Windows 10.
A marketing tactic doesn't fucking make Windows 10 free.
i saw zero advertisements. first thing i did was remove all the pre default shit in the start menu. even then, when i had the shit, i never saw an advertisement outside of the "check out xbox one app!" and even then thats nitpicking as an advertisment.
the popup if you don't have windows 10? its their os. if they want to alert users that there is a new version of their operating system they can get for free they can alert them. its just an alert.
and even if microsoft did advertise their shit, its not really advertising. its alerting their users to their products. no different than comcast, or any other cable / satellite provider advertising commercials on their own network to their subscribers. no different than netflix advertising their own shows on their service, no different than sf-fy advertising sf-fy programming as commercials on their own channel.
>>52317804 I doubt they have the time to go through all the shit you've looked at with millions of other people having the same situation of downloading windows. Plus I think they only use it if it's needed in cases against you.
>>52319320 >unix-like terminal it has powershell, which is superior >No package manager it does. its called oneget >http://www.howtogeek.com/200334/windows-10-includes-a-linux-style-package-manager-named-oneget/ >http://www.hanselman.com/blog/AptGetForWindowsOneGetAndChocolateyOnWindows10.aspx >Shitty security due to intentional backdoors and workarounds left open by Microsoft zero proof and pure paranoia >Viruses like linux doesn't get any. that's a mute point
>>52319150 >nitpicking here's some for you, gnome to this day still not supporting thumbnail support in its file picker >https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=141154
>>52318938 Terrible registry, low support for filesystems, no SSH, bloated with programs like groove music, most programs memory leak frequently, can't change basic functionality of an operating system like bootloader or login manager, DLL files, bad UI decisions, half ass integration of the metro UI, frequently phones home to microsoft servers for no particular reason no matter your servers, syncs with local time, powershell is mediocre in comparison to other shells out there.

here's some nitpicking for you >gnome 3 is atrocious and a tablet focused UI forced onto desktops >kde 4 and 5 are unstable, bloated POS coded by a bunch of amateurs >gtk doesn't support file thumbnails in the file picker to this day >lxde and pcmanfm main developer is a botnet chinese "programmer" >linux has terrible audio and graphic support >xfce is a relic of a bygone era >linux has no good desktop environments anymore >systemd
>>52319553 >deceiving yourself this much so you can justify using a botnet os to play more games
>powershell, which is superior kek >oneget kek >zero proof https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PRISM_(surveillance_program) >like linux doesn't get any this desu >gnome to this day still not supporting thumbnail support in its file picker if only there were some way to change your file manager or desktop environment
>>52319675 Unity is great. Jackd is more fully-featured and lower-latency than any free Windows solution. NVIDIA drivers for desktop machines are just as good on Linux as on Windows - in fact there have been instances where certain driver features are available on Linux but not on Windows. For all the hype against it, systemd hasn't caused me any problems.
Agreed that KDE 4.x is unstable (haven't tried 5), PCManFM is unpolished, and XFCE is worthless.
