  1. Is that picture for real? Smilies?
  2. Three months ago. About the notebooks: Do Intel core i-6000 CPUs work without a fuss with Windows 8.1, still? I remember Microsoft's fear mongering that they would stop support for newer processors on 7 and 8. I am a bit out of the loop, because the last months I haven't dabbled in all this at all.
  3. So, after a long hiatus, I am back. Missed something important? By the way, need some advice: What new notebook model works with Windows 8.1 without any fuss? Price range is mid tier.
  4. Very fitting though. Ninjas were spies, saboteurs and murderers. Windows 10 spies on you, sabotages your settings and killed the Windows franchise.
  5. I don't know.. Enterprise might be safe, but so was Pro until recently. Who would have thought they would remove group policy settings there to force ads with an forced update?! So anything goes now. Microsoft behaves literally like a villain. I would stay away from Windows 10. It's just too much of an liability. The forced change to the group policy settings was the final evidence. There's just about nothing they stop at. Even I didn't think they would go THIS far. I guess their telemetry showed that more than enough people used gpedit to stop their crap, that's why they have done this. If users find a way to circumvent that, they will patch something in to circumvent the users again. Too crazy of an OS to use.
  6. Woah. And this (together with unkillable Cortana) is coming AFTER the terror of GWX comes to an end, and despite Windows 10 not reaching it's one billion goal. Imagine that! One would think they would go this ultra-agressive after reaching their goals at least and having everyone in the basket - but they are moving into full cyber-bully activity now. Imagine their behavior if they will really reach the one-billion goal! Holy heck! This will be literal cyber-terrorism on the users. You just have to avoid Windows 10. There is no any other way around it. The signs are clear.
  7. W10 is the malware in this case. Just like ransomware encrypting files. It’s amazing that this piece of s*** OS called Windows 10 will apparenty cost real money in every case in August. It must be the first time adware costing real substantial money. All this crap would only be bearable if this POS would be completely free of cost in all cases. Fitting out a whole office/household with Windows for free, with no prior licenses, and getting app recommendations, office ads, crapware resets and privacy issues in return? Worth thinking about. Getting all that AND paying money for each license? F...
  8. Age-ism is the dumbest bias ever. Another evidence that tech-smart doesn't mean wise. Unlike other biases, you WILL experience your own bias too. 100%. It's laying the groundwork for your own demise. Especially crazy when it's about middle agers (40-50). If you're in your 20s or early 30s you're voluntary shortening your own productive life span to a tiny amount. That's just colossally peabrained. Especially given the fact that the average lifespan still increases. Every twentysomething being able to count two and two together should get it how self-harming that is. I did when I was twentysomething. There's just no excuse to be this stupid.
  9. FFS! So I’ve made an ISO, re-installed Windows 10 “clean” (whatever that means given this OS) and removed some of Windows 10’s own crapware (Get Office, Skype Video, some other built-in apps). Then I ran Windows Update. After Windows Update ran, those things which I have de-installed before (right-click on tile, de-install option) reappeared again! WHAT A CRAPWARE POS! I am really angry. Realplayer had more respect for the users than this. Now it seems some crapware icons are stuck as well somehow, because the entry for “Skype Video” won’t go away, despite de-installing it again. Microsoft was grilled in court over Netscape, yet they go scot free with this malware?! WTF? This isn’t an OS, it’s crapware disguising as one. I have a really bad feeling handing out that thing to my acquaintance. What a POS Windows 10 is. The Asus crapware was bad, but at least it won’t re-install itself after Windows Update ran. No amount of shill can excuse this s***. They should be brought to court over this “OS”. It’s worse than Android regarding respect by far, and it isn’t even truly free of cost despite being adware. Not to mention their malware-tactics to spread this garbage. The hate really enflames when you actually have to use it. EDIT: OK, the stuck crapware icons are gone now, I've also wanted to remove Cortana from the start menu completely, but there is no "delete" option in the all-apps menu when you right-click on something! What the hell?! I was able to delete everything in that sub-menu in W7. Again, what a CRAP POS. So Angry.
  10. UH, just had a first-hand experience how Windows 10 looks like for the costumer. It’s really the LAST CRAP. Using it on a VM is bad enough, but, some acquaintance brought in his newest Asus laptop for me to configure it as lean as possible. It had W10 on it. DANG. Of course, Windows 10 itself bombards you with stupid messages every time: Cortana, “Wi-Fi Optimization”, something about one drive and a whole lot of other crap. Not to mention the forced updgrades (the first shutdown took two hours or so because of them!) That’s bad enough in itself, yet there is also a TON of crapware from Asus installed on it as well! So in addition to the W10 crap messages, you also get a s***ton of BS side-popups from the “Asus cloud”, the Asus product registration McAfee, Avast (yes, it had them both: LiveSafe from McAfee, Secureline from Avast), drop box, some stupid apps and God knows what else. Then suddenly a full screen program called the “Asus Giftbox” popped up, which got stuck or something, because only the task manager was able to remove it (the application itself didn’t react to inputs). Of course, the laptop was crawling. Crapware is nothing new on Windows PCs, but because this time Windows 10 itself behaves like crapware, you have DOUBLE CRAPWARE. I tried the built-in Windows 10 system restorer, it took hours and restored of course the full of crap installation. And of course, there is no Windows 10 DVD or USB stick included for a (semi-) crap-free re-installation. BLERGH. Had to make a ISO myself. The experience was HORRIBLE. Much more so than in the past with W7 crapware. And then they are wondering why PC sales stagnate!
  11. I am still not sure whether the update situation on W7 is malice or incompetence. Breaking Windows Update on 7 could be just another form of “FU” to the userbase for not upgrading to 10, BUT, GWX is delivered through it and that’s something they obviously don’t want to break.
  12. I have some fully updated W7 systems here (including GWX nag, but disabled through registry) and the never-update option is still here. I wouldn't be surprised if NuMS would get this low though.
  13. NuMS freaks helped me to understand the human condition better, no seriously. Freetard fanatism was bad (I am talking about real harcore Linuxers), bad at least there was the whole utopian vision behind it of free software yada yada. With NuMicrosoft though – there is absolutely nothing behind it. No philosophical framework or belief system or politics or ideology or anything. It’s literally just a corporation getting greedy and pretty much criminal using malware tactics. And yet, you can still find cheerleaders for this! How can anyone getting passionate about a small group of billionaires and millionaires (MS board) f****** up their customers with malware? MAN! Seriously. It’s one of the most f***ed up things I’ve ever seen in terms of group-dynamics. The same enablers who are enthusiastic about MS malware are ironically also the ones who are usually on execution mode regarding smalltime hackers, pirates, malware authors etc. I guess malwaring a botnet is a tragedy, malwaring the entire Windows userbase is a statistic. Hypocritical scumtard bootlickers.
  14. Just like they boast about W10 marketshare spikes after forced GWX "accidents".
  15. Wow, Microsoft's downward spiral is unstoppable. After a LONG time I posted a pretty tame GWX-b***h on their C9 forum yesterday. They deleted it today. I asked why and they deleted that question too. That forum was full of shills and stuff but it was very free. During the W8 days far more enflamable stuff was posted there without the admins running amok, despite some of the shills calling for bans. Well, at least their forums are now completely aligned with their protofascist W10 product policy. It's a complete a-hole company from start to finish now.
