Re: Windows 7 vs Windows 10??

Seriously: unless you've got some specialised software that is only available for Windows and has no suitable Open Source alternative, go for Linux.

For starters, you'll have a lot more space on your hard drive for more cool programs and more data. Then there's all the other advantages Linux has over Windows - better security, better file system, no forced updates, better stability etc etc etc.

Microsoft wants you to pay them to take control of your machine (this is the same company that said "If the bad guy can convince you to install his software on your machine, it's not your machine any more" in their 10 security tips).

And if you want to have any freedom at all, you have to pay more for the versions that allow you to have that freedom (rather than the "S mode" versions).

T3NZ3N is quite right, now that Win10 is looking stable and usable, sooner or later they'll expect everyone to "upgrade" to their new version.

Re: Windows 7 vs Windows 10??

OMG, with this type of reasoning, it would be the same for processors !!! biggrin

That question is not there and your answers are off topic...

Re: Windows 7 vs Windows 10??

Linux is unnecessarily troublesome to use. It's just not fun at all.

Most of the apps that run on Linux can be run on Windows, and a lot of them are Portable, etc, but a lot of them have really dated interfaces etc.

There was a discussion years, probably decades back, regarding if Linux could compete with Windows, and the result was essentially if Linux was made so that your grandmother could use it, it would take over Windows.

Unfortunately, most everyone developing for Linux and using Linux seems to have some great degree of pride in their ability, and seem to rather enjoy being in a smaller group of users, so nothing like that ever materialized, and almost nothing has been done to Linux in that regard.

The greatest thing to ever happen to Linux was back in the early 2000's when Microsoft decided that it was no longer going to allow "Pirated", or unofficial versions of WindowsXP to be used in China Anymore.

Almost every business in the entire world outside of America relies on Windows, even the creative & design studios, as Mac was impossible to get back then without going to another country.

People in China could not even buy an official version of Windows without going through some great degree of hassle, going to only a couple of major cities for it.

So when Microsoft decided to institute their Windows Black screen that suddenly stopped the computer and made the screen black, telling you to buy the real copy, 1 billion people in China were done with Microsoft, and wanted out.

China created their own Linux, which was already one of he more advanced Linus Distros available, but was all in Chinese.

When the Black Screen came, the Chinese Linux went Full-Bore under massive development from many, many thousands of developers in China racing to create a complete Windows Replacement.

When Microsoft saw what was happening, and how close they were to replacing Microsoft Windows completely, they quickly back-peddled and allowed everyone in China to use their Windows versions again, which effectively ended development for the Linux Replacement.

We were SO close to having a complete Windows Replacement Linux Build that everyone in the world could use, including the Creatives, the Office people, the business user, the casual user, the gamer, the housewife, the mother, the grand mother, the grade-schooler, etc.

I don't think anyone using Linux currently has any interest in making something like that happen. All the Linux users I know seem to think they're smarter than everyone else, and when say they use Linux it seems like they're waiting for a reaction or "oohs and aahs" or some sort of applause or something.

Linux is consigned to the netherworld of command-line users notorious for their elitism.

Linux documentation is the worst, and Linus Forums are the most vague and useless forums around, where they expect you to know to to compile your own programs and silly stuff like that, that they easily could have released already compiled, but wanted to leave it for their fellow Linux users to do, and all that sort of nonsense.

Linux users are notoriously rude and condescending and extremely unhelpful, with most of your questions answered with "you're too stupid".

So, Linux is really not a solution for most people, and there's no future in Linux. Rather than Linux coming down and reaching the masses, Linux would rather demand you drop everything you're doing and spend countless hours doing something that is not rewarding at all, a huge waste of time, and highly left-brained, which many Creative people just don;t have the patience for or interest in.

Re: Windows 7 vs Windows 10??

I prefer to close this thread because the original post was about "Windows 7 vs Windows 10", not Linux vs Windows, and it tends to attract spams that I have to moderate.
