Literally No Reason To Not Use Windows 10 Anonymous 11/14/2020 (Sat) 02:06:04 [Preview] No. 14460
>IT'S B-BLOATED!!!!1!
And you're telling me you can't afford a $200 PC from the past 5 years that will run it seamlessly? Sell your 15 year old Thinkpads that can't even into AVX or non-fixed pipeline GPUs.
>SECURITY RISK!1!!!!1!
Have you anything to hide? No one cares about you. You aren't developing anything significant. You aren't a threat to the current ecosystem. You aren't a terrorist/spy/lone-wolf actor. FVEY has better places to spend its resources on. You're already being watched with facial recognition, Low-Earth orbit imagery satellites, and backbone-level deep-packet inspection.
You can disable the telemetry in settings. Go a step further too and get the Enterprise edition with minimal software preinstalled.
>BROKEN AND BUGGY1!!1!
In the beginning? Sure, but now its quite stable, and you'll be hardpressed to come across any problems. Linux, on the other hand, presents you with hours of work, ranging from broken audio to missing files to a lack of hardware and application support.
>NON-FREE!11!!1!
You're paying for consistent updates and almost full support for any and every application in existence. The user experience and interface is only beaten by Mac OS from Apple, and is lightyears ahead of anything Linux could bring to the table.
You don't take advantage of FOSS. You've never looked into the software to determine how it works.
>MICROSOFT IS SHITTY COMPANY11!!!!!1!
And Stallman is a foot-eating pedophile. Separate the art from the artist.
>NON-CUSTOMIZABLE!1!!1!
Windows is utilitarian with a focus on getting shit done. It won't waste your time with hundreds of customizable options and features. It just works. Imagine spending 10 minutes writing assembly code every time you wanted to use your microwave. The people who use windows only care about the applications inside of it, not stupid crap like sub-pixel rendering and kernel parameters.
>NORMALFAG1!!!!!11!
Your elitism is nothing. "Normal" people are happy, fulfilled, and have their heads on straight. You on the other hand have spent countless hours behind a screen, posting on strictly anonymous websites, angry about the state of the world and how you're so much better than everyone else.
>FUCK YOU!1!!!1!
No.

There is literally no reason to use Linux. It had its purpose, but the functions it can perform are now but a subset of the functions Windows can perform.

Make the switch.

The last good version of Windows was when you had to start it from DOS by typing "win". That's because it was optional, and you could just use plain DOS if you wanted. And that's what I did, just as I now run Linux without X.

lol, why would I waste money on a new PC if mine works just fine on a usable OS?
Also $200 is too expensive for something I don't need, sorry iToddler, I wasn't born rich.

>>14524
Agree, I would even go as far as using Vista or 8 instead of 10 because of how terrible it is.

I never got this argument, you are basically just admitting that you have no need for more powerful hardware. My main workstation has a Ryzen 9, gtx 3080, and 64G ram. I run gentoo, and I even find myself running out of ram depending on my workload.
>I would even go as far as using Vista or 8
>I would use VISTA over 10
Again, you are only sharing that you don't actually use your computer for anything productive. Lol.

Look, I get that your x220 is perfectly fine for web "development", web browsing, irc, simple hobby programming, etc. But why do you larp online in /tech/ communities when you clearly don't even like computers?

literally the only reason to use windows is games. But games are good enough on Linux so there is no reason to use Windows 10.

linux/bsd you can run on literally anything. not windows.
>Sell your 15 year old Thinkpads
the good ones aren't even 10 years old yet.
>Have you anything to hide?
Yes.
>windows is quite stable
I've had crashes and bugs on windows more times than I can count. I've never had linux crash on me, and I use rolling release distros.
>Linux, on the other hand, presents you with hours of work
Linux just works dude, ever tried linux mint or debian? Easy install and configuration. Ubuntu is coming out with a new installer too.
>broken audio
you're right that linux audio is a mess.
>a lack of hardware and application support
wrong there. more hardware and applications work with linux than windows by FAR. you have no idea the amount of software out there for linux, it seems. Also there's wine for practical windows applications. Meanwhile on windows you have to literally virtualize a linux instance to get applications working. LOL
> You're paying for consistent updates and almost full support for any and every application in existence
I'm sorry, but last I checked I couldn't run most of the stuff I use on linux in windows. also I use linux free and I get regular updates to my kernel.
> The user experience and interface is only beaten by Mac OS from Apple, and is lightyears ahead of anything Linux could bring to the table.
you're going to look at pic related and say linux doesn't come close? you must have down syndrome.
> Stallman is a foot-eating pedophile. Separate the art from the artist.
Code isn't art. Stallman isn't linux. Microsoft is windows. Next.
> It won't waste your time with hundreds of customizable options and features. It just works.
Wasting my time with having the ability to tailor an operating system to exactly the way I want it? If someone has a preference for their workstation on windows they're SOL. The idea of being customizable isn't that everyone HAS to customize their pc to exactly the way they want it to, it's that those who want to have the choice. retard.
>The people who use windows only care about the applications inside of it, not stupid crap like sub-pixel rendering and kernel parameters.
I use linux and I don't care about that shit either. Don't have to.
>"Normal" people are happy, fulfilled, and have their heads on straight. You on the other hand have spent countless hours behind a screen, posting on strictly anonymous websites, angry about the state of the world and how you're so much better than everyone else.
I'm happy, I spend countless hours behind my screen, and I've never recommended linux/bsd to anyone.
>There is literally no reason to use Linux. It had its purpose, but the functions it can perform are now but a subset of the functions Windows can perform.
The purpose of linux is freedom and power, something you don't get with windows. Also 99% of servers run linux/bsd, how could linux be useless if it's a superior server OS?
>Make the switch.
no.

Cyberpunk 2077 is now running on Linux in Wine using Proton DirectX emulation with Vulkan underneath. Literally no reason to ever buy any Microsoft product ever again.

Tell your employer to get fucked, OP. Microsoft is universally hated because they were and still are predatory assholes, and now that Microsoft is technically irrelevant, it's time for them to live off their retirement savings until they die.

There have been a number of good reasons in the form of software developed by many companies other than microsoft that did really cool things but wouldn't run on anything other platform. Although I've got a fleet of Linux boxes, I keep a Windows machine or two around because they're still the only practical way I can run high end content creation toys. The work of others is what kept microsoft viable all these years. Too bad they never understood that and persisted in seeing everybody that developed reasons to use their shitty OS as enemies.

That's just an ANSI from textfiles.com, so you can grab them from there if you want.
Here's something cool though: 8086tiny. It's an emulator that supports text mode output. It translates CGA text mode video memory ops to the equivalent ANSI terminal escape sequences. So with any decent terminal (that allows you to load a Codepage 437 font) you can play old school DOS text games without needing any kind of graphics device at all. So here is ZZT running on my Linux terminal.
I tried running it in a GNU Screen session, and that works too, but sometimes the characters aren't aligned exactly right. I guess that's just expecting too much, so instead I run it on a bare tty.
