outgoing/incoming network traffic
all sites you visit
all software you have installed
the contents of your drives
filenames of files you access
image hashes
That's just a small sampling

Reminder that Microsoft was one of the first companies to 'volunteer' for PRISM which is the NSA's program that gives companies like Microsoft the illusion of choice on how they will be sharing all their customer data with the NSA. They either cooperate or they just get their shit rooted and the data siphoned off behind their back.

I like it but making it impossible to not download updates automatically unless you completely cripple the Update service and having that shitty Windows Defender on at all times is so fucking annoying.
It is possible to get rid of both of that but it's so stupidly hidden.

Also disable the hybrid boot shit immediately. From my experience it's about as fast as doing a regular boot on an SSD but it gets stuck in a bootloop a lot.

So all in all, if you're on Win7 still then don't bother updating until 2021.
There's just not a whole lot that Win10 does better.

I got pro, set updates to at least a month delay and installed one of those third party background spying blockers.

If there isn't a single program/game you want to play that is Windows 10 only, then there's no reason to switch.

Jayden Russell

I've had zero issues using Win10, there have been no intrusive updates and turning off all the extra bullshit makes it feel like the standard Win7 experience. Don't know what's happening under the hood, though

Ayden Long
Ayden Long

I'm not looking forward to the day W7 support is dropped. New CPU's supposedly being W10 only is total horse shit. I don't want to have to deal with Linux and other /g/arbage but I will never let windows 10 touch my PC

Jose Stewart

Windows 10 bricked my computer so I'd argue no

Caleb Martin

It's ok, just get Spybot Antibeacon to deactivate their spyware shit.

Brody Ramirez

yes and no. It's good when it works. It keeps disabling system restore so when i run into an issue, i don't have a restore point. Also the memory leaks are fucking terrible

Xavier Rodriguez
Xavier Rodriguez

Unless you're a power user and know how to block network traffic and disable services, you haven't turned off shit. All of the options regarding telemetry and tracking are placebo, they actually do nothing and all data is still collected and sent to MS.

And even if you go through all that trouble, it's still no guarantee that you've de-jewed your system, updates can undo your tweaks (like turning auto updates back on without any notice) and even if you block telemetry and data collection, W10 seems to have fallbacks that still aren't understoof fully to ensure it can still phone completely bypassing your network blocks

It's just not worth it. At least with Win7 you can completely de-jew it with no way for M$ to re-jew it unless you allow it. W10 completely disregards the user and decides things for you.

Robert Anderson
Robert Anderson

you fucking FAGGOT
Why the FUCK would you say something so fucking GAY?

Jose Cruz

Is there a text guide or video on how to secure Win7 like you say? I don't know exactly what de-jew means or how Win7 tracks you so I don't know what to search for

Some of the telemetry was backported to 7 after 8/10 came out. You need to avoid installing certain updates.

Easton Rivera
Easton Rivera

Absolutely not.
t: been using W10 pro machine for the past month. It's just endless suffering.

John Rivera
John Rivera

Spybot anti-beacon is the easiest way. Otherwise, research which updates include telemetry and uninstall them.

Caleb Perry
Caleb Perry

Some of the telemetry was backported to 7 after 8/10 came out. You need to avoid installing certain updates.
Which fortunately is very easy in W7's case, and can be retro-actively removed even.
I've personally kept all MS updates fully disabled for years now.

inb4 "b-but muh security vulnerabilities!!"
3rd party AV + firewall + Malwarebytes + up to date browsers with uBlock & NoScript + some common sense = I'm fucking fine.

Andrew Bell

turn off w10 "without updating"
updates anyways
takes an hour updating
reboots into black screen
system diagnose
system repair
repair failed, no recovery-point found
set up recovery-usb stick
recovery failed
have to wipe hdd and reinstall
thanks win10

Nolan Jackson

I've personally kept all MS updates fully disabled for years now.
Same here.
Although I don't use anything extra
only use Windows to play games and do everything else in Lunix.

Like windows 7 isn't doing that also. You don't really have a choice about being watched anymore.

Appreciate it but fuck my dumbass assumed they forced you to update since it happens on restart/shut down with no menu. Uninstalling those and installing Spybot.

absolutely no performance comparisons, especially in system resource usage and gaming performance
useless.

Jeremiah Butler

But it doesn't, just get a lan monitor to watch traffic if you are that paranoid, I've only ever blocked a few random IPs that seemed to be owned by microsoft accessing my network for no discernible reason (all automatic updates and online services turned off of course).

It will never be good. Unless Microsoft removes the botnet and bloatware from their OS, but we know it will never happen.

nope. Its getting worse. Cant use my calculator, because some updates didn't install. Microsoft is anal discretion

this is complete bullshit, cortana can't be turned off, the accumulator runs 1 h less than with windows xp installed running on the same machine. And viewing a website in a modern browser takes a pentium 9000

Does it still block pirated games and software, or was that a ruse?

i don't even know how to turn on cortana lol. probably better that way

Bentley Diaz

i heard it worse with creators update
i always close the "review you settings" pop up twice a day so it doesnt update

Cameron Myers
Cameron Myers

No. If anything, it's getting worse. It's got this stupid thing now where it keeps whatever you've got open when you shut down, and opens it back up when you next turn on your PC.

Stupid homogenised tablet bullshit operating system.

Gabriel Lee

That's bullshit. I've had no issues with anything I've pirated.

I've pirated about 20 games this year, so no, it's bullshit. Just playing through Tokyo Xanadu now, in fact.

Adam Gonzalez

No.
Even when it becomes the only Windows option by virtue of having support dropped for prior versions it will still be better to run Linux instead and run anything that needs it on a VM with 7.

Andrew Collins
Andrew Collins

No. It makes games like Dark Souls III have micro stutter. Only upgrade if you have a VR Headset, otherwise definitely stay on Windows 7.

Hudson Roberts

Thanks, thought I heard it on /g/ and other sites.

Stopped using 10 recently due to lack of control. I do a lot with audio recording and to use most of my gear I have to make registry edits. Do you know how long it takes to do registry edits for thirty pieces of hardware after every update? (around a week). I'm either downgrading to 7 or switching completely to mac and linux. Might be a great OS for gaming. BUT you literally gotta suck at life and do nothing else but play games and facebook.

Luis Jones
Luis Jones

VM
dual boot you dingus

Joshua Gonzalez

Can't you export those reg settings to a file so all you have to do next update is to execute the reg file?

Before the lastest update, my computer took about 20 seconds to reach the logon screen. Now it takes almost 3 minutes. What the everloving fuck.

Austin Wilson

is that feature only on embedded version? why they put that on 10?

I'd rather confine Windows to a VM with GPU passthrough.

Mason Wilson

Same. That's why I did .
My laptop doesn't even ever see a windows partition again. Virtualbox runs way better than a native install

Elijah Rivera
Elijah Rivera

Most recent update moved a lot of perfectly functional control panel features(i.e. the ability to set application associations for filetypes) to the shitty settings option and made it so they don't work anymore, so no.

Linux is currently the best it's ever been while windows keeps going downhill.
I've been saying this for a long time, but the only thing that is going to crash windows is microsoft themselves.

Jacob Williams

every fucking update, it's like it gets even more useless.

Exactly this. If you don't support GNU ("Linux") then you are contributing to the downfall of everything good in this world. Don't pollute your machine with Windows spyware.

No, MacOS isn't any better.

install Linux on my old computer
works okay
definitely need time to learn what things you need to set for your computer specifically

try on new computer that came with windows 10
tons of issues trying to get it to install properly
After like 20 failed attempts at installing different distros, and the internal SSD being read-only, I think I am just going to give up.

Daniel Lopez
Daniel Lopez

internal SSD being read-only
is this real

Luke Campbell

Nope, and it will never be good, because no game company in their right mind would use directx12 over vulkan because they're the same thing only one is proprietary and locked to win10 only.
Protip, something being "just as good as win7" does not count as a positive, it only removes negatives.
Win10 has zero positives.
Even the muh malware angle is just shilling because microsoft legally has to patch zerodays mostly because businesses and the government aren't as stupid as your average consumer and they still use win7

Jacob Diaz
Jacob Diaz

Linux couldn't access it for whatever reason.

Jack Flores
Jack Flores

After the latest updates? No. I mean, yeah, it is better than Android and MAC OS, but it pales in comparison to Windows 7. Of course, I have heard Linux Mint / Cinnamon is a good middle ground, but as for me, I am sticking to 7.

Christopher Davis
Christopher Davis

It's pretty good. Shame I can't turn off desktop composition though.

Did you have a partition that was formatted right? Linux can't boot off NTFS filesystem

Easton Lee

I have a Windows 10 netbook, which isn't fully supported by Linux yet(no sound for one)
The irony is, that since the Fall creators update, it "seems" it isn't supported by Windows either.

Elijah Gomez
Elijah Gomez

Garbage tier. Too bad many programs now demand win 10. Nothing better than fucking up some programs with every update, adding random pointless shit that I have to remove and always having to deal with the risk that during a presentation win will take its time to update.

Jeremiah Richardson
Jeremiah Richardson

What's the new computer? I remember there being some Windows 10 systems recently shipping with a purposefully defective disk controller to block installing Linux.

They ultimately released an update, but you had to get it from the vendor's website manually.
Wouldn't surprise me at all if Microsoft is still pulling this shit.

Linux works best on systems built to run Linux.

Wyatt Fisher

Linux lists the SSD and can read from it, but it won't let me install there or move any files onto it from Linux. Aka, can't write to it.

Jose Evans

Is it formatted with some goofy non-standard file system, or did you use gparted to make it EXT4?

Brandon Lee

The last time non-indie developers started to care about GNU/Linux, Microsoft dumped piles of money on them to stop.

The beauty of getting them onto SDL+Vulkan though is they don't have to care about GNU/Linux, they just have to not take the bait of locking themselves into Windows 10 and remember that Windows 7 and Android/Linux both support SDL and Vulkan.
