IT'S OVER, MICROSOFT IS FINISHED & BANKRUPT
>>
>200+Mil Windows 10 users and counting
>Bankrupt
They will never die.
>>
It's like they want me to switch to Apple.

Windows 10 is a giant turd.
>>
Who the fuck would build a new computer and install a 7 year old OS on it?
>>
>>52446366
Me fuck 10 going to 7 or 8

>>52446281
Does support just mean warranty/technical support or does it mean compatibility? That'd the real question.

>>52446389

Looks like people will have to upgrade to Spyware OS earlier than expected.

Wh-What about Linux, desu?
>>
>>52446419
you can't be serious
>>
>>52446425
I am.

Been running linux for over 2 years now.

Nice to actually feel my computer's power in use.

MicroShaft can fuck off.
>>
>>52446451
I've been using linux on some machines since 2006.

It's not something I'd trust my main desktop to.
>>
>>52446281
So this means what like hasewell and lower can't use 10? Games are no longer being supported on lower gen?
>>
>>52446486

Manjaro on the laptop for stability. Need this thing for school.

Vanilla arch on the development kernels for the desktop at home because i enjoy it.
>>
>>52446486
It means new CPUs can only use Windows 10 and up

I'm assuming this doesn't apply to non-Windows OS'
>>
>>52446281
Microsoft: "Hey Intel, Qualcomm, AMD, you know what, guys? We kind of need your help a bit. Windows 10 is a disaster and we have a feeling that a majority of the sane users will want to cling to a stable operating system that is under their control until the last moment in 2023. We don't want that. But we have an idea. Let's force people who buy new hardware to use our newest OS if they want to use Windows. Make that new silicon you're working on only compatible with Windows 10 and make sure it doesn't run on earlier versions of Windows. That way we'll save all of us some headaches."
>>
>>52446397
What you just said is literally my only concern
>>
>>52446397
I hope it doesn't mean what i think...
>>
>>52446281
All this means is that they won't bother making native drivers for them. As long as the manufacturer keeps releasing their own drivers (and they function fine), you will be set.

>This PC is compatible
>It's fast, familiar, and more secure
>Your files will be right where you left them
>It has built-in free anti-virus protection

Why wouldn't you upgrade? Upgrade now, or start download and upgrade later!

That's the thing, Linux is for people who enjoy computers. Normal people hate computers unless it's in the form of a phone or tablet. Microsoft is just killing off the little that remains of the PC platform as far as average Joe is concerned.

>>52446998
It's pretty spooky how much MS has been pushing Windows 10. The only other time MS was this aggressive was when Windows 95 came out. The big difference is that the PC market was booming back then, and today it's basically dead to anyone who isn't an enthusiast.
>>
>>52446281
Now really, how would they do that?

Wouldn't for that they would need to mess with motherboard BIOS?
Inject malware in the old windows versions to dont support new skylake CPUs?

Secureboot/UEFI, if you ever had a pre-built you know those things are shit
