I disagree. Yes it is popular to hate the OS as satan here on slashdot.
Windows 10 anniversary over 7 has:
1. Much better battery life for laptops and not just portables
2. Native wifi and NFC printing
3. Native USB 3 and USB type C drivers
4. Stable NVMe (7 is backported with 3rd party drivers that are buggy)
5. Hyper-V (A Must for any IT professional!). Yes you can run native Ubuntu and Fedora with a generation 2 VM
7. Cloud integration with azure with Azure Active Directory. Some businesses prefer this model over having an expensive IT department
8. Ink works well on MS surface and hybrids for OneNote and Sticky Notes. I own a Surface Pro 3 and yes it is a work tool for me that is ultra portable
You could not pay me to go back on Windows 7. The only good thing I have to say about Windows 7 is it is very stable and has a consistent gorgeous UI with aero. But like XP it is showing it's age with 3rd party drivers that do not work well, terrible battery life, and it does not work as well with modern hardware.
The poloris based 480x is slower than Nvidia's cheapest 1060 card for $75 more. Nvidia just released the most advanced graphics card just yesterday
Dude the new AMD Polaris just hit 2014 era benchmarks as it caught up with 9xx Nvidia technology. It is dead . Even the new 1060 low end Pascal can easily outmatch a Polaris 480x
Uhhhh you DO know there are ways to get updates other than WU, yes? That many of those make it beyond trivial to refuse the spyware updates (and if I'm not mistaken AutoPatcher doesn't include them in the first place) so that we can have Win 7/8/8.1 completely spyware free?
I have dealt with Win 10 on more PCs at the shop than I care to mention and I can say with confidence...Windows 10 is a giant piece of shit. Its buggy as fuck, its updates are more unstable than running a Linux alpha build, hell I had forgotten what BSODs even looked like until Win 10 and its "sad face of suckiness". And the new "features"? Its either designed to give MSFT more datamining or fricking more cellphone style crap. Hey MSFT? If I wanted a cellphone I'd use my smartphone, which just FYI runs Android because unlike your mobile OS it actually has apps..
There is NOTHING about the new OS that makes it worth leaving Win 7/8/8.1, hell even Windows 8 had at least one reason, which was it made a good UI for HTPCs, but 10? It sucks your bandwidth, spies on you, gives you zero control over the OS, and for what? So I can give MSFT more data on me? Fuck you MSFT, you want my data PAY ME, I'm not giving up an OS I paid $110 for so you can make free money shoving ads down my throat using MY bandwidth onto MY desktop and snatching MY data..fuck off.
This is change for the sake of change.
I expect all the changes backported into 2.6 as I do not want to use a kernel designed for teenagers and throw out perfectly good working computers and learn something new all over again
For one stop going to Indian sweatshops and finding the cheapest outsourcer with teams of no real world experience
FFS would you stop linking to ad filled link farms that just copy the first paragraph of someone elses article and just link to the damn article
> How many starving children in Africa are you willing to sacrifice for your kicks?
They have been starving since before you were born. Bleeding hearts have been bleeding over them since before you were born. When exactly is that problem going to actually get sorted out?
People should be able to feed themselves. If they are unable to do this, then this is the real problem. Giving people handouts may make make you feel superior, but they don't deal with the underlying problem.
Taxing capital gains like that is stupid. Your own retirement depends on capital gains. If you alter the tax code in this manner you're slitting your own throat.
Attempts to "punish the rich" usually end up hammering the middle class instead.
While he provided a concrete example of his point, the only thing you could manage was some recycled propaganda.
Not at all. It's far better to give a man a job than a hand out.
I have zero class envy or class hatred over this guy. The money he spent building this thing went back into the economy. It wasn't hoarded in some offshore tax haven.
If you want the world changed, there's nothing stopping you.
