I'm running linux on my laptop but need Windows for some uni classes, microcontrollers and stuff like that.
Which version of Windows should I use for virtualization?
And what can I do to make windows using the less resources possible
Use windows 7
Everything else is shit or outdated and don't forget to turn the updates off.
otherwise it's going to install 20GB of patches
I'm considering upgrading a Celeron M380 (self reported mPGA479M) to a pentium M755 from a local auction website.
Is there any point in doing that, will there be any difference and possibility of installing anything newer than windows xp or at least an android if it'll work with a radeon xpress200m?
are you using it for vintage games?
I have a pentium M 755 laptop (nc8000) with 2 GB of RAM, and it's REALLY slow for today's workload. it didn't use to be. back in the days, it only had trouble playing 720p or higher H.264 video (100% CPU for 720p, and dropped frames for anything higher). everything else worked perfectly (in particular web surfing with regular browser).
windows 7 is even worse. 100% CPU use nearly all the time (even just loading notepad...), and fans really loud. room also gets hot fast... similar results on linux mint mate 18.1 x86 live CD
single core processors prior to core2 are underpowered for today's uses. upgrade, or use for lightweight vintage games. not much more.

I just hacked my comfy levels guys, this is absolutely insane. Who knew what adding a pillow and a footrest could do, now I can stay programming even when I'm tired. Comfylevels should always be a top#1 priority.
>fan gets louder the slower it goes
It's probably only more apparently louder because it either enters into a frequency range without competing noises to drown it out or your brain doesn't adapt to the more infrequent revolutions and you are more attentive to it. It's physically impossible for it to generate more db by going slower, it's all to do with your perception.
What specs can handle Madvillainy?

Look how fucking awful the website of adobe's new office is: http://whitecollarfactory.com
Should have used flash :^)

Ryzen Threadripper is such a power hog..
Why can't it be power efficient as the latest Intel HEDT offerings?
Anyone know anything about this? I found this computer at a yard sale but can't find anything about it online.
/g/ I have never owned a 16 by 9 monitor. The only time i have ever used a display was on a computer at the library or tv.
All of my monitors have either been crt's or 1280 by 1024 cheap monitors that you get from the thrift stores.
Should I buy into the modern display meme?
They're so cheap these days there's pretty much no excuse not to get one on some open box/Fry's email special/etc.
Better yet, since you're not yet tainted by "modern" shit, just get a $250 55" TV and enjoy your big screen. Don't fall for the 144hz/4k bullshit memes.
Is privatevpn a scam? I bought 15 months from them and then their entire site went down and I cant reach support or anything.
I'm thinking of buying a new computer desk and the rest of the furniture is black-brown (even though all the black/brown shit looks black)
what does /g/ think? Could I go with a better table top color?
