People L O V E Windows 10, /g/. Why don't you love it. It's the best OS. Ok? Please install Windows 10 CERTIFIED by Microsoft.
I have tried it, it's more annoying to use and the new features that seem interesting aren't well implemented. I rather stick to my Windows 7 that doesn't have the telemetry or "windows 10 forcefully installer".
As my main OS I've been liking Hackintosh way more.
Let me remind you that Microsoft asks more money on their Microsoft licensed hardware, just look at a Surface Book compres to a Macbook and ontop of that ask money for their software, since they are a software company. Apple gives out their productivity bundle for free, Microsoft requires you to pay for a subscription or pay a large amount for a single version. On top of that OS X is free (including updates), Windows still costs money, only the upgrade to Windows 10 is free until the 29th of July.
>This is not plausible. I'm an active consultant with over 40 years in the field, and have a wide range of contacts both in business and personal use. I know nobody who has voluntarily upgraded to Windows 10; several have inadvertently done so, and are universal in their complaints about problems with peripheral and especially update problems. Many, once they are apprised of the intrusive nature of Microsoft's snooping, and the potential for advertising embedded in the OS, are outraged.
>The underlying engine may be sound--it appears so--but until Microsoft fixes their update and security policies, I'm advising everyone to wait until the last possible moment to make the decision to move to Windows 10.
If you say so OP
M$ is pretty developer friendly now that they offer Visual Studio for free for small companies.
A legit copy used to be pretty damn costly.
And they recently enabled sideloding for WP
OS X is also something I've been wanting to get my hands on for some time, I have used windows and am using Arch Linux right now. I tried hackintosh-zone on my laptop, but there were no kext files available for my wifi and sound card. But I'm getting a Macbook soon. And yeah, there are plenty of good things about OS X, but what makes it really intriguing for me is that it's based on Unix, so I could experiment with that on OS X instead of just GNU/Linux.
Windows has been a pain for me its an unfinished OS, here's some tibits from a clean install I did
Issue #1: CPU locked at 2.5ghz (mobile chip fyi) and I cannot edit the CPU governor via power settings E.I. maximum and minimum state options do not show up anywhere in the advance settings to change this, works on my desktop and worked with 8.1 on my laptop but is missing in 8.1
Issue #2: CPU hyper threading/turbo boost not working, again on my laptop both are enabled in the bios and working in Linux but are absent in Windows 10 which is REALLY weird, googling this will not bring the issue that I'm having due to google thinking I want to disable it in bios or something
Issue #3: right clicking the task bar application icons text and icons missing, so you know when you right click firefox or windows explorer or even steam icon on the task bar a bunch up option pop up in a context menu? well the text and icons will be missing at times and its really frustrating since I have to manually restart explorer.exe.
Windows 8.1 had NON of these problems, nor should shit like this be present
The boot up is faster because it's a hybrid hibernation. The programs and services get killed like normal, but the base system goes into hibernation
Yes, but Windows 10 is arguably better than Windows 8.1, especially when comparing the points he mentioned
DX12 will/does bring some amazing shit tho
>much better file copy dialog
Oh boy a new file copy dialog, I must upgrade now, goodbye privacy
Windows 10 is also rguibly worse than 8.1. 10 is even less consistent, telemetry and updates which can not be disabled. The only pro that I can think of is that they brought back the "Previous Versions" tab in file properties. The start menu is a joke compared to 7's (just as bad as 8's, only not fullscreen, with broken search also botnet integration).
The "Settings app" is complete garbage and they tied it to everything throughout the OS. In W8 you only have to use Control Panel.
no games yet. irrelevant
>faster boot up
too many variables to consider this objectively true
>much better task manager
>using the default task manager
>much better file copy dialog
kek seriously? what kind of totally super important information does it display?
>Pull up writing panel.
>Post what it thinks you wrote.
8.1 would be god tier if it had these following things from Win 10.
-Skinny Window borders
-Black theme with white text
-Scroll window while not being focused
-Non-metro start though I don't mind the metro one that much
Windows 10 runs quite well on my HTPC and it runs much better on my tablet than Windows 8 ever did. Still running Windows 7 on my desktop though since I just haven't bothered to upgrade it yet.
Thinking about getting a Lumia 950 as well so I can have Microsoft cocks in all my holes.
>mainly use PC for gayming
>can't update W7 to reserve a W10 update because telemetry spyware shit
>soon I'll be forced onto W10 one way or another
What do? Should I just install Linux on my uni laptop and do anything I'm not comfortable with doing on Windows on there?
Just built my first gaming/HTPC and I have to say, I love it. It's still shit compared to OSX, but getting it installed was easy (compared to other versions) and on a SSD, this thing boots and loads games faster than my PS4.
Would I use it for anything other than movies, music, and games? Fuck no.
If you install Linux in the same machine it has access to the windows partition. So moving your files on the same drive is no problem).
For Linux you can try the most popular ones
*buntu flavor. But if you want to use Ubuntu then you have to remove the amazon bloat that tracks you (will be removed from unity in Ubuntu 16.04).
Also you can try opensuse, Linux mint and many others(Debian, there is so much to chose from). Most of /g/ aspies will hate you for not using arch but don't pay attention to them.
>Work systems harrassing me to upgrade to Windows 10
>The forensic software/hardware we use has issues with Windows 10
Fuck off, Microsoft.
Windows 10 is a buggy mess but at least it's more stable than 8 but not as reliable as 7 I think it's under rated and will be treated like vista hopefully 11 comes out soon and removes kebabnet
THIS THREAD IS RELEVANT TO ME
I just got a new harddrive (samsung 850 evo) and I need to install an operating system on it. I tried pirating windows 7 with daz but couldn't get updates to work and I'm pretty sure those .iso files have viruses. At this point, it's either spend $141.95 on windows 7 home premium, go for windows 10, or try to pirate again.
inb4huuuuuuuur why don't you just code why aren't you coding right now hurrr i have an engineering degree hurrr
Not trying to be an ass, but why not just try Linux (depending on your OS needs, of course), and run things through a VM or Wine/PlayOnLinux? If some things you absolutely must have (such as work related things), then stick to windows. But yeah, I suggest reading a little bit about things, and if it's because of "vidya gaymez", Linux has more than 5 games, and you can run most windows only games through wine. Plus, you could always dual boot. I myself am just running Arch Linux, no windows on my machine, but I'm thinking of getting a secondary computer (mac book), and running OS X and maybe bootcamp with windows.
Buy a licence off eBay ? Pretty sure there are a few that come with the CD. If you have students nearby you can also ask them to download a ISO from dreamspark.
Also what this anon said. >>52455512
How the hell you debloat this shit? my uncle updated from windows 8 to windows 10 on his sony vaio laptop and it's slow as fuck a pain in the ass literally a piece of shit, takes 5 minutes to boot and there's nothing installed except stock sony vaio software. My aids ridden windows xp in 2004 was faster, for fuck's sake.
Is there an official debloating infograph for windows 10 yet? or any complete guides at all?
I'm gonna be honest, I don't understand all the hate between the OS's. I use Arch Linux instead of windows because I just prefer it, but I did like using the Windows 10 preview iso's, but it just wasn't for me. OS X, Windows, GNU/Linux, they're all good, but some are better for others. I'm currently trying to get a macbook so I can try out OS X and put homebrew on it, and then maybe bootcamp windows on it, but on my main machine, I use Arch Linux, no windows to be found on it. I really just don't understand why you have to hate it. Most of the time too, it happens to be personal preference. They all have their pros and cons.
