With all the needless GNU/Linux trolling going around this board, I thought it was a good idea to make a thread where people can actually post cool things about an operating system they actually use, and yes, most of us use Windows 10, while Linux is just a shitty meme around here.
So, I'll start
>faster boot times >better performance in games >cool and sleek UI design
If you're on the internet in 2016 you are already being spied upon by everyone.
I only wish W10 Mobile was as good as desktop W10.
That said, all the bullshit I see posted about the OS is just that: bullshit. Hell, I've gotten more into the development side of things with it because it's just so fucking easy to manage now.
Got none of those, no idea what the fuck you did wrong
>Windows 10, while Linux is just a shitty meme around here.
You seem to forget that Cred Forums is different from all PC users.
And, if it's gonna be anything, it'd be Windows 7. I fucking love Windows 7 and I'll stick with it for as long as programs fail to support Linux.
>inb4 spyware So. What do you use to manage the telemetry issues? Did you get the new update?
>>faster boot times My boot times are the same on 7, 8.1, and 10 on my SSD. >>better performance in games Maybe by 2-3 frames, in my case anyway. >>cool and sleek UI design Subjective. I don't care for how inconsistent the UI feels, and this is coming from someone who uses 8.1.
That said, I find LTSB to be the only good version of 10. The rest are just shit.
Just bought an SSD today and installed Win10 for the first time. Any tips, anything i should be aware of ?
Turn it off You tard.. its like show suggestions in start or something.. just Google it

10 rupees have been deposited in your designated shilling account pajeet. Now go fuck yourself
Hey you douchebag at Microsoft that decided to keep trying to put Windows 10 on my fucking computer... GO Fuck Yourself! I hope you get fucking testicular cancer and your balls fall off! I'm tired of removing your fucking windows 10 installer (KB3035583), Hiding the update, Fucking removing the 6 FUCKING GIGS OF CRAP YOU INSTALLED ON MY HARDDRIVE WITHOUT MY PERMISSION, YOU PIECE OF COW SHIT! ONLY TO HAVE IT FUCKING REINSTALL ITSELF EVERY COUPLE OF WEEKS! WHAT THE FUCK?????? IF I WANTED YOUR FUCKING BLOATED ASS GARBAGE SPY INFESTED NSA LOVING FUCKING PIECE OF FAT SHIT OPERATING SYSTEM, I'D FUCKING INSTALL IT MYSELF. I DON'T NEED YOU TO KEEP TRYING TO PUSH IT ON ME SO YOU CAN BACKDOOR MY FUCKING I7 ANYMORE THAT IT ALREADY IS YOU WORTHLESS EXCUSE FOR A FUCKING COMPANY. Do you see where I'm coming from? - Sincerely, Every computer user that has any fucking common sense.
The standard mail signature is so classy. I also like how it tries to force you to use an outlook email address.
Like what? Can I manage UX (ie choosing a static picture for the picture icon in my start menu rather than a slideshow)
I was, August 2015, happy that I could upgrade to Windows 10. Everything was OK for 2 weeks. Then shit hit the fan. Taskbar not loading, Start Menu not working, sound drivers failing. So I decided to reinstall it before I would need it for Uni. I managed to tweak it so that almost everything was OK. It was kind of slow, but good enough. 3 months later, had to change the sound driver AGAIN. 3 months after that, sound driver randomly fails 4 times in the same hour, start menu stops working and, after I restarted it, the fucking taskbar wouldn't load AGAIN. I have managed to fix this shit with a restart, because no tweaks could fix this shit. So, with all the hatred in my heart, I say FUCK MICROSOFT AND FUCK WINDOWS 10 AND FUCK THE ASSHOLES WHO ARE SUPPOSED TO PATCH THIS SHIT, BUT INSTEAD THEY UPDATE PIECE OF SHIT CORTANA. If this fucking behaviour continues, I am reverting back to Windows 8.1. At least that was an OS that you could actually fucking work on without having to use half an hour trying to fix shit. Fuck Windows 10.
Windows 10 told me I needed to recover my outlook account, so i opted to have them send me a code by email. I received a 3 digit code and entered it to recover my account. No good, you need a 4 digit code they said. Requested a new code and got a 4 digit code, entered the code and was told I needed a 5 digit code. I thought about continuing to see how high they would go but I don't need an outlook account so I gave up.
Straight into the trash it goes
>inb4 spyware OH, well, when you say it like that, I guess I'll just forget about it or ignore it.
You stupid piece of shit.
All versions of Windows are proprietary, meaning they don't respect your rights as a user of their software. Not only does Windows have the potential to be malware/spyware (because it's proprietary), it's been straight up proven IS malware/spyware MULTIPLE TIMES.
- They have unrestricted access to your data - They have a universal backdoor to install updates to alter your computer however they please - When bugs are discovered, info is given to the NSA before the bug is fixed - A myriad more issues could be listed and who knows what we don't know about
But I guess it's worth it to be controlled and spied on in order to play video games.
>how do you manage spying
You pirate the LTSB Enterprise edition, then shut it down completely using group policy editor.
Sure, you don't get the latest updates (only security for the most part) but it's like "vanilla" Win10, which I like
BOTNET O T N E T
FECES H I T
Windows 10 is a fucking toy OS for cellphone faggots.
Hey Ritchard, i heard you sacked a tranny. Good job mate.
would you rather use os x or win10 :^)
I plan to install Windows 10 on my desktop for gaming, DVD/BR rips, video editing, etc once I get either a decent laptop with Linux or MacOS or just buy a Mac Mini for literally anything else I use a computer for.
Who has problems with Youtube page on M. Edge? Site keep freezing on me
I like receiving notifications from my phone and being able to respond from it. I know third parties are able to do this is bretty neato. And btw, Skype can now send SMSs as well.
Just a question, why can't we talk about anything Windows related on here without Linux users derailing everything with their irrelevant software?
I know the "pajeet" thing is satire and all, but it stopped being funny a while ago. Now it's just racist. You can stop already.
So I've been using OSX for the past for years for iOS Unity3D game development. I bought a new laptop but I'm still debating over what OS to install. I don't really want a Hackintosh as I'm not interested in OSX anymore, plus I'm moving away from iOS development and doing more general stuff.
It's between Ubuntu and Win10 for me. I really want to give Win10 a shot, because now Bash is available through the Windows subsystem for Linux. However, I'm a heavy vim user and I really like keyboard oriented user interfaces. That's why i was really looking forward to a WM like AwesomeWM or i3. What are my alternatives on Win10? The most promising things thus far are the following two;
Honestly, I just want something that works well, and allows me a really good keyboard driven windowing experience. Bonus points for something that allows me to open and easily switch to my favorite applications.
As for the latter, would I be able to get AwesomeWM running with that? I was using Hammerspoon on OSX, which also has a lua scripting interface, and I really enjoyed that.
I bet all the gril fokin luv u at uni m8, how many times have you even made eye contact with another person?
>Win10 appreciation No one appreciates your useless trash Rajeesh.
shut up, OP.
Take your shekels and go
Found nothing wrong with it even till now
Until recently I believed all these microsoft shills are just some troll wannabe Cred Forums kiddies but I was completely Wrong.
Microsoft has been deploying Evangelists to support developers since a long time.
Although a leaked document explicitly mentions that they are not here to support developers, they are here to shill microsoft and undermine  other companies.
These are not just trolls. These are professional shills.
Ditch Microsoft products
Don't be fooled my Microshills. They never cared for the users. Their latest strategy is to compete with google for mass surveillance with built in spyware. Data is the most valuable good in the next century and Microsoft is trying really hard to become the monarch.
Is anyone getting massive disk usage spikes and poor performance in general after the last updates? Man, it was fine before, but now even opening the start menu lags. And don't get me started on games performance.
Why are they fucking it all up?
They know that no matter how bad Windows 10 becomes, it will still be a far superior desktop OS than GNU/Linux can ever hope to become. This triggers them.
Came to post this, clicking the start button now gives me a split second of lag and the loading icon appears. Wtf did they do
I'm a lifelong diehard Windows user who recently started to dual boot with Ubuntu. I even made a thread about it not long ago. And now Windows just feels shit and slow to me.
I don't need an operating system that babysits me. I know how to fucking manage my computer myself without having a million background processes.
What is the least offensive way to install Windows 10 on my computer? I want to play Windows 10 games but I don't want OneDrive, I don't want that shitty fucking start menu with ads, I just want a working operating system.
>cool and sleek UI design This is the one thing that irks me about Win10 than anything else. It's fucking disgusting iPhone shit for the facebook/tablet generation. And you can't even switch to a proper decent-looking professional theme without modding the system into an unreliable mess.
Install Win 10 Enterprise LTSB. It's windows 10 without cortana, the app store (or whatever it's called) and some more stuff. If you want it just to play games and windows programs, it's the perfect choice for both virtual and physical machines. Wouldn't use it as my main OS tho.
Don't you still have to do some cleaning?
Well, yeah, but it's still the least bad windows 10 version.
>>faster boot times Compared to what? It's the same as Windows 7 and 8. >>better performance in games Actually worse for DX9 games like CSGO, pretty much the same for the rest. >>cool and sleek UI design Subjective, but I think it's ugly. 8 looks the best.
Why in the everloving fuck can I not disable stickycorners for mouse movement across multiple monitors in win10?
apparently there was a registry workaround to disable it in win8 but no longer
Silverware is usually stainless steel that is mostly nonmagnetic. TRIGGERED AS FUCK
fuck off sukhdeep
>most of us use Windows 10 Wait, winfags on this board actually believe this?
Doesn't every "what OS are you using" poll always show the opposite?
no, only indians believe it. most of us who aren't gaymer babbies from Cred Forums still use 7.
i fell for the ubuntu meme 2-3 years ago, downloaded it, installed, opened, computer don't recognize speakers, fine i'll find how to solve this on mozilla, no internet connection, ubuntu didn't recognize wtf knows what probably wifi card, fine i'll connect it via LAN and see, it works, open mozzila, can't see vids because no adobe flash player ends up i have to install something like 81264712365710 different programs just to see a monkey eating its on shit on yt. Fuck this shit, linux is really for mongoloid people
I wonder if anyone checked all the internet connections of Win10 LTSB to check if Win10 really doesn't send telemetry.
Windows 10 is a massive fucking turd. I upgraded my windows machine and >WiFi doesn't work >Search bar won't work >Fucking Nvidia drivers won't work
Steaming piece of shit got overwritten by Windows 7 straight away
HEY GUIZ LOOK AT ME, LOOK HOW SMART I AM, I HATE WIN 10 AHAHAHAH WIN 10 IS SHIT ISNT IT? IT REALLY IS LOLOLOL I LOVE GNU LINUX XD XD WATCHING PORN AND BROWSING FACEBOOK IS SO MUCH BETTER WITH LINUX XDXDXD AHAHAH LOLOLOL POOR LOSERS USING WIN10 LOL JUST PLEB AHAHAH LOL LOOK I'M REALLY SMART HOLY FUCK WOZ I WANT TO DUDUDUDU YOUR ASS MAN HOLY FUCK FUCK WIN10
But it's slower since the update
>You will never be this autistic Kill yourself, neckbeard
What? If it ain't silver it ain't silverware. There's plenty of silver-plated stainless steel cutlery though, and stainless steel is ferromagnetic is fuck since it's like 95% iron.
