About to wipe out linux hard drive and install Win 8.1. How fucked am I?
>>
>>52507417
The question is not "how fucked"
The question is "how cucked"
And the answer to that question is "extremely so"
>>
Why not windows 10?
>>
>>52507458
I have extremely slow DSL, and happen to have 8.1 on a usb stick. Can install that, and let 10 slowly download in the background.
>>
>>52507471
Good call.

Not at all. Unless if you want to take some files from linux.

I would install Windows 10 but some SAFE OS error keeps pooping up

nigger, a nerd built the keyboard you are currently shitposting on
go fuck your stacies or whatever, there's no shame in not being smart enough for linux
>>
>>52507555
About 12 years

Wtf op just partition the drive and have 2 os partitions and a spate partition for all your files that aren't programs like videos and pictures.

Are you still in 6th grade, nerd?
>>
Before the shitposting and name calling begins I'd like to say it'll depend on what you do on your computer OP. If all you do is play vidya then it might not be for you. Any other tasks..not really.

Unless you're attempting to bait however..
>>
>>52507417
Shut the fuck up you attention seeking dickhole cunt.

First off... You are a useless cunt.
How hard is it to use linux (Changed from windows) and not fucking tell people about your experience or how you are switching back.

I mean no one fucking cares if you failed using linux then switched back.

>Oh wait.
>This is /g/
>Home of the seekers of attention and acceptance retards.


Please tell me more about how you think your OS defines how fucking cool you are.

Just get a 30 Buck ssd and stick it in your laptop on the ODD bay or on your towers and refresh grub after installing windows there is literally no point in formating a perfectly good linux install You will regret it.
>>
>>52507523
nerd...

Nerd is a term that is said to people who have a high IQ that is applied to the tasks of those of are ether present or affected by that "nerd"

Simple said, that nerd will make more then you do in the same time you took time to insult someone with a complete primary school insult.
>>
>>52508521
He is a type of person who, when faced with limits, will turn the other way then feel like they are fucking professionally educated on their failures.
>>
>>52507417
>how
in the head
>>
>>52507417
You are not fucked. But I do suggest you return to school and get some education.

>Linux for retards
>Failed for retards
>Well god will just let you fail.

Useless.
>>
>>52507417
I hope after you see the windows icon you fucking kill yourself.

>>52507417
not 7, the best windows yet.
why no dual boot though?

just dual boot like a decent human being.
>>
>>52508496
lol wut
>>
>>52507903
Nope. Not baiting. So far, alot snappier than I would have thought on my bottom-feeder laptop. So far have not seen the Metro screen. Not bad. IE sucked though. Used it just long enough to dl Chrome.
>>
>>52507417
I'm fucking done with this linux replaced with windows.

It's like you fucking retards cannot deal with this without posting on 4chan.

Fuck off to facebook and post how smart you are while you suppress that you are retarded for failing to use linux.
>>
>>52508668
Short version

OP can't use linux
>Replaces with windows

Retarded confirmed.
>>
wew about to do the opposite
>cluttered W7 install recognized as pirated

The only thing stopping me was game compatibility, and I'm finally at a place where I feel comfortable in WINE being able to fill in any gaps where Steam doesn't cover. Skype and alt-tabbing were must-haves.

Original plan was Mint. Is this still a good idea?
>>
>>52508690
Well, I ran it fine for 12 years, contributed to FOSS projects, so yeah...
>>
>>52507417
You're ok
>>
>>52508694
OP here. Mint isn't bad, but I really have to recommend Mageia. Freaking just awesome.
>>
>>52508694
i'd suggest going with debian stable+backports or debian testing if you already have a bit of experience.
>>
>>52507417
Look at OP and his low IQ decisions.

Did you research how linux will treat? Or did you simply be retarded and switch to it without being educated.

You must be americuck with that approach. Fuck off to windows. We don't want you at the linux community.
>>
>>52508711
>lol reading comprehension
>>
>>52508707
OP mate, fuck off to windows already.

You failed to kill yourself.
>>
>>52508721
Your aggression is interesting. It says alot about you.
>>
>>52508720
Oh my fucking shit god.

Another /g/ user, who instead of using valid counter arguments, simply refers to grammar.

What a fucking shame. I thought we could do this using some level of educated responses.

I guess next time I will take time to call you a retarded until you fall to the killing self part.
>>
>>52508734
Yeah it does. Like how I want you to kill yourself and you are failing to please me.

Also you seek validation from this thread, ether from people telling you how to fix your linux issues, or to aid you into feeling better about resorting back to windows.
>>

>OP says he used it fine for 12 years
>You shitpost that he couldn't figure it out

Kill yourself.

I've only ever diddled around with Crunchbang on an old thinkpad thinking I could use it as a school laptop (battery issues and plain old speed lust made me break down and buy an ARM Chromebook), and Elementary.

Really like the looks of Cinnamon; aesthetics are half the reason I'm switching over.

>>52508707
>OP here
Why not just get a fresh install of a new distro?
Sharing a bunk with grandma and afraid she'll call the FBI if terminal pops up?
>>
>>52508757
You really suck as a troll.
>>
>>52508765
Sorry, was I meant to read comments made from this cancer thread.

Automatic assumptions is that OP is another
"Linux is shit" thread. So again, should I care. Should anyone care about you retards.
>>
>>52508785
cinnamon is nice but have you tried xfce with compton yet?
>>
>>52508786
As much dick as OP does?

I hope so. I would have one for everyday until I die.
>>
>>52508785
Because every distro I try is hard freezing my laptop after a short, but random amount of time. Still have Fedora running on my desktop flawlessly, but laptop doesn't seem to like any Linux distro since about the 3.13 kernel or so.
>>
>>52507417
You should use arch.

Then end yourself.
>>
>>52508804
OH. MY.GOD. You are just precious, pumpkin.
>>
>>52507417
Not this thread again.

How many times do you faggots need to past a linux vs windows based thread.

Use one or the other. Do you need to use 4chan as a posting site so we can be updated about how you are challenged with everyday tasks.
>>
>>52508809
Ok snookums.
>>
>>52508802
Tried XFCE through Chroot on the Chromebook; I'm sure with enough fooling around I'd be able to get the looks I want - but that's just it. I want the no-muss no-fuss.

If there are any legitimate reasons to favor another debian distro I really want to hear them so I don't get shot by doubt torpedoes halfway through the install.
>>
>>52508822
Oh you are ether gay or a gurl, ether way, who the fuck cares. You are retarded and thus cancer.
>>
>>52508846
Plz don't be mad at me senpai
>>
>>52508833
Why are you repeating things your mum says to you but now to me?

Like my trolling?
I own 98% of these comments. You think you are talking to more then two people...

I enjoy this.
I came here to remind people that their threads are trash. I do enjoy making them last longer though.
>>
>>52508840
debian doesn't really need spin offs, you can install all DEs on it except unity and you can choose between point-release, semi-rolling and rolling without issues and use it fully free or with non-free. pretty sure you can install cinnamon on debian, if you can't there's always LMDE.
>>
>>52508884
Ok baby :) You're supertrollman. You are very special.
>>
>>52508884
>then
>*than*
>>
>>52508885
FULL STEAM AHEAD
If I have any trouble at all, I'll use debian

Seems like you enjoy using Linux in general. Why not dual boot that shit?
>>
>>52508922
Yeah I am. I will consider my time more valuable when I begin to see less of these linux threads.

>Will never happen
Like your death
>>
>>52509064
Well linux fucks my shit up. I tend to ether go one OS at the same time. I also think windows has better programs.
>>
>>52509064
It doesn't seem to work right anymore. Hard lockups at some point every time I use it on my laptop.
>>
>>52509090
Well, I'll be sure to steer clear of a Master such as yourself. No one could possibly withstand you.
>>
>>52507417
Why do you go back to Windows?
>>
>>52509017
And done
We Linux now
>>
>>52510446
Check out gnome-look for some window border and button themes.
