Now that edge browser is being rebranded and released for windows 7, windows 8.1, and MacOS, is there any reason at all to be using windows 10 over 7? Does windows 10 have any advantages of any kind anymore?
I'm keeping 7 Indefinately for processes that require windows software. With internet access disabled. I use GNU/Linux for anything that requires online access. Soon as Audio softwares become properly Linux compatible I will switch over.
>>68817761Yes, you won't feel lonely while using Windows 10. With Windows 7, you are all alone while using your computer.

>>68817761hundreds of reasons. people still using win7 are the dumbest motherfuckers in the universe. these same dumb motherfuckers refuse to move to win10 because they're so paranoid and computer illiterate that they have no idea how to customize win10 (disabling updates, blocking telemetry etc.). win7 users seem content with slow loading, slower performance for some reason. oh well, only a year to go before these lamers are all forced onto win10. eat a fat dick, lamers.
>>68817842>Nobody uses that>Nobody uses that>Nobody cares about that>Nobody likes that
>>68817761Windows 10 does have some nice benefits over 7 like being able to mount disk images, much better file transfer window and being able to scroll on unfocused windows, but none of that seems worth upgrading for.>>68817872Is this bait?
>>68817761I could never go back to 7 because of the virtual desktops, having access to DX12 is also nice. That said I've used 10 since it released and I've like it, so I'm probably a turbo-normie by /g/ standards.
>>68817818I like being all alone.
>>68817761LTSC is bretty comfy with spying disabled and just werks but I can see sticking with 7 to be safe
Windows 10 is the best Windows yet. If you want to criticize it you have to go the freetard route and criticize it as harmful to your freedoms. For games and everything that matters, Windows 10 is Amazing.
>>68817842So nothing that I would like or use? The only way I manage to put up with using Win10 at work is tweaking the shit out of it to have a decent LH theme, Aero Glass and no retarded Ribbon
Look at all the Windows 10 shills that just showed up. They're almost as efficient as Protonmail shills.Anyone using windows 10 even with what they believe is disabled telemetry shouldn't be allowed to post on this board. Enjoy your premium data mining machine fags.
It has a lot of features, but i have concerns about privacy even with telemetry seemingly disabled. And it's still wangblows.
>>68818029perhaps it is you who are the shill, being against the greatest operating system on the planet!
It all depnds if Microsoft updates Edge for Windows 7 beyond 2020 or if we are only getting one year of updates.
>>68817761If you were using win10 because of edge, I'm not really sure what to say...
>>68818150Professional and Enterprise versions of windows 7 you can pay for updates until 2023. So whatever version of windows 7 is still supported they'll keep updating edge for.
>>68818093>the greatest operating system on the planet!Confirmed shill. When will people learn you don't get anything for free.
>>68818188Exactly my fucking pointWonder whats changed since?oh. Fuck MS and Fuck Win 10 and Fuck its shills entirely.
>>68818208If you honestly think you are more secure and less monitored using an operating system released in 2009, I lol at you sir.
>>68818188Did they ever release a statement to quell these fears? Apart from 'crazy conspiracy theorists'
>>68818263Very cute, its a shame you feel the need to criticise others and not actually contribute to your argument.
>>68818243>because telemtry and monitoring and spyware has decreased in the last decadethey just moved it to hardware dude. Ms plaing catch-up>>68818247Maybe want to read the undertitle of that pic again anon. That WAS ms making a statement.
>>68817761New features. A GUI based package manager built-in. Security updates. DX12. Support for newer CPUs. And the list goes on.
>>68818310based and redpilled.
>>68818298Care to direct to it?
>>68818310>A GUI based package manager built-inAnd that would be?
>>68818332Windows Store. lel
I assume that edge browser for windows 7 will be delivered via windows update?
>>68818332Microsoft Store. Also, I use WSL very commonly, it makes Windows less of a pain.
>>68817761Was the existence of Microsoft Edge ever a reason for you to use Windows 10 in the first place?
>>68817761>implying Edge is advantage>implying someone uses EdgeplsReal reasons to drop 7 already and move to 10:- the new cmd that can finally be maximised- it supports Linux aliases, like ls instead of dir- it finally has support for ssh- multiple desktops, really handy - notifications panel.
>>68817902>scroll on unfocused windowsOh, and also this so much
>>68817761>Using Windows 10 for EdgeAnon...To be honest though, yeah. Windows 7 is at end of life dude. Get off that sinking ship. Windows 10 is trash though. As much as I hate mac you'd be better going to it unless you are comfortable with Linux.
>>68818414It's convenient for a fresh install to only need one browser installed and any chrome extension will work with it.
It's a shame nobody is really sure about how much data harvesting is going on in Windows 10.Its obviously going to be deeply hidden in lengthy privacy policies I can't seem to find much on analysis of it apart from the European Union basically telling them to clean up their act.
>>68818441Say what you will about Microsoft, but it pales in comparison to the data logging going on in all the Linux distributions, especially Arch Linux. Wikipedia says so.
>>68818441Attach a Windows computer to a computer that patches internet to it. See what packets go where and when.
>>68818493I don't need to, my windows computer never connects to the internet. It's interesting how microsoft gives you no option to opt out of data collection.Basically released an app going, this is what we collect. Like or leave it.
>>68818542What are you hiding, anon?
>>68818582You're doing a very bad job hiding your privacy by talking about it here.
>>68818592You're doing a very poor job of shilling for Microsoft.
>>68818603I wish I were a shill for Microsoft and Arch didn't log even worse than Windows.
>>68818609I guess that's a problem for Arch users. If verified. Doesn't detract from Microsofts extensive data-logging.
>>68818638Your OS logs, too. and your firmware. and your CPU. and your router. and your email provider.Logs as far as the eyes can see.
>>68817761>edge>reason to use 10What? Who the fuck uses edge? It's not relevant for anything.
>>68818653And that's an argument for Microsoft to do so? Jesus.
>>68817761I'm a fan of LZX compression
>>68818674Yes, my child?
>>68818702You do realize the telemetry is only for solving performance issues, crashes, and errors, right?
>>68818734Of course it is. Is that why your machine gets assigned an advertising ID?
>>68818749>he doesn't use ublocklaughingpajeets.av1
>>68818734Decembers a bit late for sweet children of summer to still be up, no?
>>68818765My beard is older than you.
>>68817936Couldn't agree more
>>68818761Microshills can say what they want. I use uBlock, Im however not going to use a machine that collects so much data a continents governing body has to tell them to stop.
>>68818776my condolences. you have made a will?
>>68818792Well get to working on Linux, because it still sucks so much compared to Windows.
>>68818802Not yet, though to be fair, my beard is older than me, too. I purchased it from a carny folk.
>>68818805I already confirmed the solution in the first place. Use windows boxed off from the internet. And use Linux as a daily runner.You microshills took great offense to anything negative said about your great data harvester.
>>68818842What do when you want to play an MMO?
>>68818894But anon, it's frowned upon to grind levels by attacking the neighborhood pets.
>>68818687>he needs LZX compression for his cp
>>68818917Space savings is space savings. Coupled with a big drive it just adds up.
Does WSUS Offline with Security Only Updates disregard all updates that have telemetry, or do I still need to check to make sure it's disabled?
>>68819285It install whatever update is available/packed in.They don't worry about checking them, they only download and pack al the updates available.
>>68817761Actual reasons (that you can't achieve in Windows 7 using third party software that works better):>Windows Store apps>DirectX 12>Applications that have dropped support for Win7 APIs (as of 2018 there aren't any)And that's it. Arguably also WSL, if for some reason running a headless VM with a shared folder doesn't fit your insanely specific use case.
>>68817882>>68817990Why do you unironically prefer cucked versions of Explorer?
>>68819404Why do you unironically enjoy the taste of dick?
>>68819437But we're not talking about Apple.
>>68818399I'll biteLinux has had that for quite some time
>>68817761Just better performance, better compatibility, better security, and better UX.
>>68817761When was Edge ever a reason to use Windows 10?
>>68819404IE has built-in rss feed, Edge doesn't. It's also why I won't update Firefox after this month. Yes, I'm tech illiterate and can't extensions.
>>68817872Windows 10 literally does nothing windows 7 can't do, for me anyways... Other than delete all my files and play Russian Roulette with drivers every big update.
>>68817872not sure if bait or that much blue pilled
>>68819525The good parts of Win10 were all adopted from Linux.>scroll follows mouse cursor>multiple desktops>better console window>WSLThey are pretty nice desu, shame about the spying
>>68820425You're an idiot
