Hi /g/. I have a media PC connected to my TV. It's an old Dell Optiplex with a Core 2 Duo, and 2GB of DDR2 RAM. It runs Vista just fine, but I recently bought a new wireless keyboard and trackpad combo and it comes with Windows 8 shortcuts. Should I upgrade it?

>no windows 10 pls

Why not Linux?
>>
>>51503818
because I need to run some Windows programs that are not supported on Linux.
>>
Vista is botnet free op.

I have Win 8.1 and it's pretty good.

Just make sure after you install it to never use your "microsoft account" to log in anymore. You only need to use it once, when you create your first account, I think. After you do that, disable that shit, disable the app store, log in only with your local account and it's a good OS to use.

>2GB RAM
Not sure if that's enough, though, for a PC today.

>Should I upgrade it?

Rather than downgrading to Windows 8, why not just goto microcenter and grab 2GB of DDR2 ram?

Thanks for the advice, but I live in Australia and theres no stores that sell computer parts, most of it is online and expensive as hell.

I don't give a shit about the so-called 'botnet'. Windows 10 is a ugly steaming pile of shit that was cobbled together by retarded coders. It's a massive resource hog too.
>>
Windows 10 is literally Win 8.1 with just a few changes:

- new UI, made to look like web UIs

- the botnet becomes real, it's their new business model

Win 8.1 will literally be the last decent OS from Microsoft, in which you can disable the botnet and use the rest.

Get used DDR2 ram from ebay.

>>51503762
install vista. it has none of the botnet updates 7 and 8.1 are infected with. only thing I hate about it is IE 9, but that can be avoided with firefox.
>>
Not worth it, imo. Vista uses less RAM than 7 or 8.1, I don't see any benefits for you to install them.
>>
>>51504060
You can create a local account during the initial setup

Install win8 when offline so you don't have to use a Microsoft account at all

why this? can you still update it?

>>51505449
you don't have to use one anyways. Are people really to retarded to skip microsoft account steps?
>>
>>51503762
Vista is 100% fine for another 2 years. Enjoy it while you still can

Windows 8.1 is literally windows Vista with a few changes:

- new UI, made to look like shit

- the botnet becomes real, they try forcing you to use an MS account

Win Vista will literally be the last decent OS from microsoft, which contains no botnet.
