so windows just rape upgraded my pc to windows 10, how fucked am I?
You done goof'd fam
Windows 10 killed my hard drive last month for their shitty early build because it's not perfect, lots of people are experiencing this issue, at least 60% of victims got their hard drive data corrupted after upgrading to Windows 10.
Rip your laptop
Did someone say raep?
>Hating on mac when all you do is browse /b/
>Not running Gentoo
>Windows and Mac plebs being retards
Enjoy your backdoors and bloatware idiots.
It's better than being a windows cuck and agreeing to let the NSA steal your info. Plus, I can switch to Arch, ubuntu, fedora, etc, when ever I want. You're stuck with Microshit 10.
For normal users, it's not absolutely terrible. They've made some normal tasks extremely difficult though. I should never have to use cmd and powershell to fix Microsoft edge and other core apps which break regularly. Likewise, try editing your remembered wifi networks. Install Linux or hope you never have to do anything but browse and make PowerPoints.
Windows 10 actually gave a boost in fps for gaming, runs a lot smoother than 7 or 8.1 for me personally, I enjoy it. That being said, download spybot anti-beacon, the privacy concerns with 10 are real and if you don't block their access they really cross the line on privacy.
Ubuntu and mint are the equivalent of tourist distros.
Gentoo just sucks.
Arch is fine for advanced users.
Nothing makes for a more stable system or server than good old deb though. And there's a reason mint, Kali, and ubuntu are all built from Debian...
Funny how we've gone from simple and smooth like XP was and now we've got "not the bad" forced down our throats. People are just so damn complacent that they just bend over and take it.
actually, you're fucked.
>windows 10 = hybrid win7 with win 8.1, shake, pick out the fuzzy parts and go.
i installed 10 about 2 weeks after i bought my new 8.1, never regreted it, but i did have to mess with the reporting features to limit what gets reported back, as well as disabling Edge because it (like IE always has been) was just too fucking slow.
otherwise some nice features that only newer comps can deal with.
you're about 25% fucked for a week or so. if you know what you're doing.
BTW, what OS vers. were you running before the "rape"?
learn how to control panel faggot
i have all that shit turned off.
XP was smooth, but these days it's like putting your grand dad in a veyron. fun, but a waste of potential.
win8 and 8.1 showed definite evidence of having been designed by committee, as well as some serious security problems. win10 addresses these bugs, but you have to be computer savvy to understand what to turn off and what not to. if you aren't, get some smarts.
otherwise go buy a Mac, and never know how badly screwed over you are.
i'm actually trying to start to use edge more for simple browsing because it turns out chrome is a huge ass memory hog / battery drain for my laptop. it has it's uses if you just need to browse, although it's lack of adblock is just horrible.
I have never had any problems with win10. I personally think it is a great upgrade. I don't understand all the hate against it. But cortana is kinda useless unless you don't know how to search for files your self.
I just read most of this thread and realized that most of the people in it are autists who don't know scratch about computer software.
Listen up OP. This is the reason why you are fucked. Windows 10 is actually better performance vise than any other OS,but theres a catch. It is mandatory that your PC sends information about EVERY site you visit and everything you install and do on your PC to Windows. You can't turn it off or go around it. So yeah,kiss your privacy good bye and get arrested for pirating (if you live in USA)...
Depends, did it upgrade from 7 or 8?
7 you're fucked, unless you game, in which case you have DirectX12 support
8 you're in for a treat a treat that is a better tasting dick in your mouth, because 10 is like a less autistic cousin of 8, with a smoother daily routine
Windows sold out in like the me edition.
>If you ever thought you had privacy....
I know I have privacy. Windows 7 is the last relatively tolerable OS if you know how to use it. Windows XP and ME are god tier (I still use them on my backup PC's, fucking undetectable)
If I'm going to run an outdated version of Windows, I'm going to run the real best version of Windows.
Did you mod it or using the vanilla?
Best Buy employee here.
If you're going to live with it, disagree to everything except the EULA during initial boot. Then, from within Win10, perform a full factory reset after backing up your important stuff.
Personally, I'm loving Win10. It's their best yet, and even I had my doubts. I was a holdout from 7.
If you hate it, you're able to revert to your previous version of Windows from within Win10.
Awesome. I've still got two W2k machines running. Both old machines with little memory, but needed to run specialized hardware. W2k is so lightweight it's perfect.
Would never let them on the net though, and someday would like to put on TinyXP.
XP is the shit for sure, and would stick with that for life, but the hardware to run it is getting pretty old and slow.
Now stuck with some modern machines which I'm intentionally keeping Win 7 as long as I can. Seen way to much BS with 10 at work to ever let that happen.
Vanilla + the latest UURollup which came out in November 2014. That gets me the current Firefox, everything else is either current (qBittorrent) or just using an old version (VLC)
Built a PC over pissmass. Got win7 for thirty bucks on Black Friday and immediately upgraded to win10. No complaints so far everything's fast and works and it's got the old desktop I remember without too much of the win8 and beyond bullshit.
Use real words, you dumb faggot nigger
>you mean with. win10 actually gets rid of all the bullshit bells and whistles
You mean it has some bells and whistles and gives your entire system content to microsoft in the form of the biggest spyware operation in cooperation with NSA, FBI who funded 10.
There was a reason it was "free to upgrade"
DUDE, IT HAPPENED TO ME TOO THE OTHER DAY! ATLEAST WE HAVE A COMMONALITY OF BEING RAPE UPGRADED BY WINDOWS.
i turned off automatic updates on my win8, and removed the windows icon that asks you to upgrade every day
fuck the police
Happened to me while I was nearly done with the Main Easter Egg in BO3 Zombies. Had been playing for 3-4 hours at the time. Don't think I've ever been as angry with a company as at that time tbh
>i turned off automatic updates on my win8, and removed the windows icon that asks you to upgrade every day
I stay on VPN, and only use my neighbor's wif - (rotate between 2 neighbors, and working on a 3rd w/wireshark)
Hosts file and kaspersky blocks all microsoft websites. Took me a minute to input them all.
There are multiple websites that show you what to turn off, and gpedit settings (if you have pro)
Use a host file, use website blocking capabilities of hosts file. Block them in your router as well.
All the urls and IPs to block are available online. Some lists are more complete than others, and microsoft changes them all the time, so check frequently. Yes, it's work.. sort of like playing whack-a-mole, but it's fun if you're OCD and autistic
This happened to me less than a week ago.
When it gives you the EULA agreement decline and it will go back to whatever windows you had before.
Then disable windows updates.
Windows 2000 was really the best microsoft ever made, no shit.
XP was not built on 2000 like they said it was
Video editing on 2000 is smooth as silk.
It is about as close to Apple OS as it can be in smoothness and stability.
windows 10 is gangster, this video will prove it
>XP was not built on 2000 like they said it was
Yes, it is.
2000 and XP are both based on the NT kernel. Except XP pulled some of the family-friendly things that ME had (which was 9x/dos-based kernel) like updated windows media player/screensavers/etc
Once you upgrade just do fresh install of 10 if it "breaks your hard drive" and I'm pretty sure it will work fine. The likelihood of an OS upgrade completely bricking your HDD is slimmer than an Ethiopian long distance runner.
I never had a decent experience with XP for very long. I had no trouble or necessity to reload win2k. I could actually fix win98.
Windows ME was born broken.
I know a lot of people were crazy about XP, but I just didn't have that great of an experience with it.
No, I use the dozens of tiles that vomit themselves across my desktop every time I open the start menu.
How else am I gonna use calculator.exe if it's not represented by a gigantic rectangle?
Computer science professor from NSU agreed with me that Winxp was not an evolution of win2k.
We both could have been wrong, but we both had nothing but tiring experiences with xp.
Put it on your taskbar for one click opening. I use calculator a lot, and run multiple instances of it going all over if I'm working on something a little bit complex and don't feel like making a spreadsheet.
To get multiple calculators, you have to click only on the exe - not a shortcut. Opening a cmd prompt or run bar just seems tiresome.
So long as you're familiar with installing win 2k, all you need are the links this guy has in the video description. You can follow the video for how to get Firefox working.
Cortana is always running, always sending data. The only way to stop Cortana or any of the windows 10 features from sending back data on the most basic level is to disconnect from the internet. Windows 10 is made to be always online.
Honestly, I saw kernel parts and it looked the same. However, it was just unstable for me. this was not the same for everyone
I always built my own computers, so hardware may have been an issue. I didn't pay for quality anti-malware, but honestly back then there wasn't any. The price you paid for quality anti-malware was a 10-30% load on your resources back then. Hell, Norton was a virus to me. It constantly bugged you, you still got malware and spyware, it slowed your computer down when you needed all your resources...
Computing and malware control has come a long way since then, honestly. I've learned better ways of stopping malware too.
Anyone ever get their browser home page jacked? Remember search.com or whatever the hell it was? It would literally come the fuck out of no where.
when I had it. no matter what I did, my computer would wake up on its own late at night. It was freaky. I changed to "no automatic updates". I changed the hardware properties not to allow the keyboard or lan properties to wake the computer. Still it would wake up and run for awhile at night. Fuck 10.
I think they collect the entire contents of your computer, over and over, as often as necessary to keep their copy of the content of your drives updated. You cannot have a copy of the contents of your computer though. It is for subpoena, marketing shit to you, and antiterrorism is at the bottom of the list.
