NateAsbestos: Aquapope: XP Pro - that's the good stuff.Actually, I should bite the bullet and see what Linux is all about and if it's more hassle than it's worth.Jesus man, upgrade to SOMETHING! Vista is an improvement over XP at this point
stampylives: good thing you didn't link one of the many reputable sites reporting this, and instead gave the us a link to someplace called testosteronepit.com. i mean, when people want credible news and see some crap like businessinsider.com, they always think, "gee, this would seem a lot more reasonable if the site sounded like a url from dick enhancement spam."
StoPPeRmobile: Whatthefark: I remember hearing about this with Windows 98\2000.Yep, it took a while but it happened like many of us said.
cman: uber humper: cman: AdamK: so at what point do companies start dropping windows because it's to blame for corporate sabotage and spying? i mean governments love probing individual people but as soon as there's a $ loss to all of this then time to throw it all out the windowAnd replace it with what?Linux is a joke and Apple is expensive as shiat, and not everyone can make a hackintoshWe're stuck with itHave you used in Linux distros latley? What's the joke about it? The majority of the web is running on it right now, along with about 1/3 1/2 smart phones.Yes I have used it recently. Its still a joke. Until Linux has uniformity then Linux will be a joke.Android is based on Linux, but guess what? Its uniformity amongst devices, which can be problematic, isn't as bad as trying to fix an Ubuntu problem with instructions for Arch Linux.
corq: WTFDYW: HAd to purchase a new computer. Windows7 install would have cost me a bunch more money. Went ahead and bit Windows8 figuring I'd get used to it.I did not get used to it. It blows dog. I will NEVER like this shiat.Ubuntu/Mint/Xubuntu/Lubuntu - LibreOffice and Steam for linux, if you have to have games. USB stick and a 20 minute download of the bootdisk is your best friend. PS4 is right around the corner if you find you still hate gaming under linux...If you need to remote to a windows PC elsewhere, there are RDP/VNC clients and Juniper/CIsco/Citrix vpn clients for linux for most work environments you might have to reach from home./Windows-free home network over 5 years now
IdBeCrazyIf: Arsten: Run tpmadmin.msc and click "Turn TPM Off" in the action list. You need the password (Check your owners manuals), but it disables the hardware. Some BIOSes have an option to turn it off.I always figured there had to be a way to turn it off since there is also an option for it in group policy. If group policy can change it in an enterprise environment then it should be available to the home user as well, albeit through esoteric means at times.uber humper: Switch to Linux is not a huge one, just do it.I've been dragging my feet because I'm addicted to MechWarrior Online
sno man: IdBeCrazyIf: sno man: IdBeCrazyIf: Everyone does realize that this trusted platform has existed since Vista correct?Except you could turn it off before the failed abortion that is 8.I haven't looked but I was under the impression that it is enabled by default but can if needed still be disabled since in rare instances you could brick your motherboard using it.I'm no expert, but do have a fair bit of experience with various versions of windows and I haven't found the off switch yet...
