Windows 10: Why you should NOT upgrade...


Recommended Posts

TBH, I've grown tired of this thread since the first post. I don't know what motivation and agenda people have to prevent people from using the OS of their choice. It's ridiculous, and defining for some people's attitude these days. And, when I have to read then that people should use Linux instead, I have to laugh hard. Because I have 8 years of experience running Ubuntu on several machines.

It's as if people need to invent dozens of alternative religions these days. And smite all non-believers.

Maybe I'm naive but I always associate Linux with WINE and virtual machines.  If someone "switches" to Linux as their grand-daddy OS, that doesn't mean they are giving up Windows, it just means they can shove Windows into the corner and use it how and when they want, in a confined environment.  After all, this is how Microsoft have been treating us, so why not us treat Windows the same way.

Dragging these companies through the mud in the press with bad PR is the best way for consumers to fight back. Sometimes it even works!



Additionally, they haven't a shred of respect for consumers, so we have the duty to treat them just the same.



I already converted mom to Linux. No, it's not a religious thing, I just don't feel like letting corporations fuck me sideways, and worse, being expected to personally help them do it!

Things of a religious nature tend to be unproven scientifically. Nobody can say for sure whether a god exists and is watching over us. We can, however, say for sure that these companies are just out to lie, cheat, and screw us over in as many ways as they can for another five cents, as the evidence is all around us.

Web browsers collecting the user's hardware IDs, is especially evil. That said, this behavior isn't unexpected. Quite the opposite, in fact.

Them: "Good luck clearing your web browsing history when we already collected it and associated it with the unique characteristics of the hardware in your computer!" (insert evil laughter here)

Much like with any self-respecting rapist, these big corporations do not take "NO" for an answer.


You WILL have Bing integrated into your start menu. We WILL collect any text strings you type in there. If you take steps to stop this behavior, then we will change the way the system works internally via updates so that your registry tweaks (which only exist to placate our large business customers) no longer disable said functionality.

      Bachelor Mapping Challenge!
      The girlfriend will be away to her mum's place for almost a week, which means more mapping time for me! I'm planning a speed build. Hope it will go my way
      I'm starting by downloading 2.11. Don't know if I'm going to use any fancy new stuff. Just want to crack those itching map muscles that has gone dry and dead since almost a year's worth of no-mapping

      The cool part of Canonical's Snap, is that my machine can now ray-trace an entire (simple) scene faster than it takes the web browser to start!

      Fm idea (braindump)
      "Experience the life of a mission builder"
      Esentially there are finnished elements placed somewhere in storage in the game and you have to place them in the correct places, build some walls here and there, add guard routes, give them their correct speech lines, etc. Decorate the places.. all in-game. lots of fun.. 😉
      If you do it right in the end you can play the mission.
      (would be even cooler if a thief-ai could play the mission, making it some kind of tower-defence game)
      This first started as an idea for an aquarium builder mission where-in you have to fill an empty aquarium with sand, waterplants, castles water and swimming fish. But above idea is more fun.

      Dear ChatGPT, What are The Builders in the Dark Mod?
      The Builders is a popular game mode in the video game community called "Dark Mod," which is a fan-made tribute to the classic "Thief" series of stealth games. In this game mode, players assume the role of builders who construct structures in a dark and ominous environment while trying to avoid detection by patrolling guards.
      The Builders game mode is unique in that it offers players the opportunity to create and design their own levels using the in-game tools and resources provided. Players can experiment with different building materials, construct intricate traps and puzzles, and create their own unique gameplay experiences.
      While The Builders game mode is not an official part of the Dark Mod, it has become one of the most popular and well-loved aspects of the game, thanks to its emphasis on creativity, strategy, and stealth.
      You guys did not know that, did you?
