IT'S OVER, MICROSOFT IS FINISHED & BANKRUPT
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.
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."
>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.
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.
