Windows 7 is based on the same kernal as Vista - it is effecitively Vista service pack 3. Vista was fine after service pack 2 - main issue was the inadequate minimum hardware specifications MS suggested originally. If they had been honest and went with 2GB memory minimum and a dual core cpu then people's first impressions would not have been so bad. Obviously though MS would have suffered as the OEM channels would want the latest OS even with hardware it was not suitable for.
Agree, I'm still running Vista on a dual boot machine along with Win10. Vista was just ahead of its time, while Win10, with its putting things where you can't find them and all that telemetry (solved with ShutUp10), was a step backwards.

That's the normal behavior of Linux users. They cram the system with their FOOBAR crap, insane visuals, but only open up tomboy to keep writing lame stuff. And also, they dream thinking they're playing any game at 60fps.

So what's up? What you're waiting to jump to linux if you don't use anything windows is providing you?


Linpack users eat Benihaha.

Reading their evangelism over an operating system just makes me want to ditch it even deeper than I have, unfortunately I need it for python.

Cheers from Brazil-jungle country.

Cheers back!

...most programs and games only work on Windows. Is it wasn't for that, I would gladly change to Linux.

Recompile everythings!!

If you lov4d linux as much as you say you love linux you'd leave now and never come back.

Picture how bad IE would still be without FF. Welcome to Windows 10. I will forgive googles shenanigans if they give us a alternative OS! Copying FF with Chrome was nice... Step up. Squash Windows give us a gaming OS.
 
I still can't get build 1909 to work so why should I bother with this release. 3 times I've tried to upgrade and my computer slows right down to almost a stop.
They should be getting rid of all rhe bugs before they punt these updates out to the public.

Wait... are they finally fixing how stupidly broken search has been since forever??? Not going to hold my breath but search has been a colossal failure for so long I thought it was tradition.

Then your doing something wrong or your running really old unsupported software that ties into windows. Where I work I've already pushed half the machines to 1909 and no problems, sample size about 3000

They need to stop forcing default apps back to the shitty ones that Win 10 "recommends" when they push these large system updates. As someone in IT it creates a lot of busy work when 100s of PCs have their default browser and PDF viewer set back to Edge, WHICH NO ONE USES.

Why don't you have group policy setup?

It's funny watching Microsoft slowly re-introduce all the Windows 7 features. Just think of the time and effort they could have saved by sticking with a common sense UI paradigm. Heck, they should really go all the way back to Vista and bring back the classic start menu option and sidebar. That's where they peaked and even they know it.
I actually liked Vista. Of course it was also far passed the time when it was universally panned for being a resource hog. The main difference in my case was that I bought it in 2009 for a new build on a dual-core PC at 2.4 GHz per core and later upgraded the CPU to a quad core at 3.0 GHz per core. So by the time Windows 7 was released, I didn't think of Vista as that bad of an OS, and didn't feel the need for the upgrade and nor did I want to spend any more money. Vista was just was too much for the current hardware at it's time of release. You could say that it was a financial decision and it kind of was.

IMO, Windows 7 was just window dressing of Vista, but was readily accepted because hardware had caught up by that time and people just assumed that 7 was better. I would say that most all software and drivers for Vista were also designed for 7. So there you go. I was one of the rare few to use Vista as a primary and for a duration and skipped 7.

Your comment will be disregarded simply for mentioning Windows Vista.
I used Vista from 2009 until 2013 when Microsoft dropped support, There wasn't anything wrong with it. 7 was just window dressed version of Vista. Software and drivers were interchangeable. Vista only got a bad rap because of when it was released. You needed at least a dual-core to run it, just like 7.

I don't understand why is so freakin' hard for Microsoft to make a modular Windows. Just make a BASE Windows without any bloatware on it then add modules that can be installed or uninstalled individually. Currently after I install Windows on a computer I own, I need to manually remove all Windows features I know I will never use, stop indexing service that is totally useless to me, uninstall windows games, etc.. There is no need to have all crap installed on a machine that needs to do only 3-4 specific tasks, or on one that will rely on totally different programs and never use Microsoft sh**.

They mention sandbox. It worked great when released but broke after an update. Tried everything suggested but never got it working again. I hope this update will finally fix the issue

Expect for new bugs. postpone the feature updates to max 365 days so that you dont get windows 10 buggy updates.

It was a new feature I was anxious to have. The update was fine except it broke the new sandbox! I always do an image backup prior to large updates and can put it back any time but I decided to live with it.
