Windows 7 fags, thorougly btfo.also >inb4 I don't update anyway XD
FUUUUUUCKGuess I'm becoming an Arch user.
>>69314268Nooo, Goy, upgrade to Windows™ 10!
>>69314208You can't even disable or postpone updates on Windows 10 though. The number of breaking updates in the last few years has to be intentional. Microsoft just does not give a fuck anymore.
>>69314151its safer to no update. not even hacker do so much damage as microsoft
>>69314268I know you're memeing, but if this is your first experience with Linux, please don't install Arch. Just use Ubuntu or Mint.
>>69314151Werks for me :^)
Just updated yesterday my w7 pro and no issues at all.I guess only windows server version got this issues.
>>69314268arch is unironically more stable than windows 10

>>69314456>imagine being poor and having anything less than 128GiB of RAMayy lamo
>>69314483im just saying, why use windows 7 with that pc, doesnt make much sense
>>69314483Why not 256? What are you, poor goyim?
>>69314329I'm using Windows 10 (both Pro and LTSC) and both of them can delay updates, wtf are you even talking about.
Give me one good irrefutable reason to give up my windows 7 botnet.
>>69314151Imagine being a betatesting cuck.
>>69314492you're an idiot if you think so>>69314495i can't afford that mush :(

>>69314537>>tfw there won't be LTSC version for zen 2 release so I'm stuck with regular enterprisewhat a retard
>>69314329Windows 10 Pro here, I have Windows Update disabled and do my updates - when I feel like it - through the catalog. So I'm presuming you're another stupid nu-/g/ retard.
>>69314553>>69314609I thought LTSC doesn't support new hardware?
>>69314513People with stockholm syndrome can't be convinced.
>>69314629I don't think you understand what "new hardware" means, anon.
>>69314401Recommending normalfag distros is just as bad as recommending autistic distros.
Microsoft go and fire all the software testers? holy shit. Too often I'm seeing stories of updates severely breaking shit and now it's creeping back into 7. Or in this case they could be doing it on purpose to push people off of 7. Wouldn't put it past them.
>>69314658I guess you're right.
>>69314151When will people learn to stop updating. They have been the primary means of planned obsolescence for years now.
WANG7 FAGGOTS BTFO
My wifi has been cutting out randomly since I last updated
>>69314839I've been saying this since software started getting bloated. That's what you get when you put pajeets in charge.
>>69314151So, how easy is installing Debian?
>>69314151Rip network of my corp
>all of Microshit's fuckups the past half-decade plus and there are still retards that still don't keep a month or two behind in updates
>>69315695Hella easy bro
>>69314529>you're an idiot if you think soprovide him with a suitable answer, unless you have none?
>>69315782>>69315790Well, it's time to jump the ship I guess, I was planning to stay till M$ ended the support for W7 but fuck it.
>>69315835You can try Debian in VirtualBox before full install. And if you have zero experience with linux, maybe try Ubuntu or Xubuntu first
>>69316006Yeah, I was thinking about installing in a VM first but I take regular backups and most of the important files I have on my external hard drives used for storing media, I can just re-install the software I have currently or find an alternative. About Ubuntu, I'll switch to Debian sooner or later so I thought I'd cut it short and just install Debian first, thanks though.
>>69314401>Ubuntu or Mintxubuntu
>>69314483>windows needs 100GiB to workayyyy
>>69316650not OP but I've actually been trying this on an old mac computer (core2duo) I found that someone was gonna recycle (what a waste). It's good for old hardware like this isn't it
>>69316737Not him, I'm actually >>69314401 and I unironically like Xfce. Super customisable and runs fairly well,not to mention the fact that you can make it look legitimately good (in b4 >lipstick on a pig)
>>69316768Yeah so far seems alright. Not much I can do with it but I've right now just been using it for youtube/other web stuff while I have a game or something full screen and switching out of fullscreen is a bitch due to performance and stuff on my main while said game/program is full screen. It's been good for that basic thing.
>updating windowsNo thanks.
>>69314151>lol why don't you use wondoors? It just works>>69314477This is such a meme
>>69316737it's usable on bentium 3
>>69314495>Why not 256?win7 only supports 192GB
>>69316813use mpv for youtubempv $(xsel -b)
>>69316878Oh no I meant I'm using it basically a second screen to my main computer when it's running something but what does that command do?
>>69314151I wonder how it feels for Micropajeets that their own Windows 7 works flawlessly and that one can use it regardless of what Micropajeets think, say or do.By making Windows 7, they dug their own graves.
>>69316901i meant don't play yt in your browser also set PREF yt cookie to f6=8copy the urlenter the command
>>69316938But firefox is working just fine that it came with? Sorry you've kind of lost me why I should do it this way instead?
>>69316837>not learning to go into services and disabling wupdate>not writing a script to do it each time you bootThe absolute state of /g/. Its just AyyMD and Intelaviv shills here now screeching like autism elementals. No one knows a fucking thing.

>>69317118hw accl no jsno tracking etcalways the quality you wanton and onyou can bind that to a key btw
>>69317229>hw accl Speaking of which this has an old ati (pre amd?) card inside it but I can only really use default drivers so I don't know if I can take most advantage of the card due to this or do the default drivers already adjust for that?
>>69317154Why are you lying? >just disable wupdate lol And all the shit that tries to reactivate it when you're not looking. So really it's more like>disable wuauserv>disable waasmedicsvc>change group policies>set your connection to metered to stop it from auto downloading>fuck with your active hours (which can only be like 12 hours a day)>kill yourself when M$ pushes through a "super important security update" despite all this and reactivates all the services you disabled.The fact you need to do this at all is fucked up btw.
>>69317321notOP but I agree with this, why should we have to fight our OS like this to begin with is really what it comes down to. Not the fact of it being easy or hard to do, you shouldn't have to do it to begin with.
>>69314341This is sadly true
>>69314421If I ran /g/, posting this image would be an instant three-day ban. I hate this slave attention whore
>>69317305i've no idea what you have or use but it may be able to use vpdau for h264 which happens to be youbutempv --hwdec=auto --vo=vdpau
>>69317458I tried using the commands but it didnt play anything. Can't vlc also do this?
>>69317499did you give it a video to play?
>>69317524Yeah I did mpv and the url and it ended with "failed to recognize file format" I just tried doing the same thing via VLC player instead and it played the file instantly and full screen toggle seems less glitchy.
So should I uninstall this patch?
>>69317321>Why are you lying? >>just disable wupdate lol >And all the shit that tries to reactivate it when you're not looking. So really it's more like>>disable wuauserv>>disable waasmedicsvc>>change group policies>>set your connection to metered to stop it from auto downloading>>fuck with your active hours (which can only be like 12 hours a day)>>kill yourself when M$ pushes through a "super important security update" despite all this and reactivates all the services you disabled.>The fact you need to do this at all is fucked up btw.Learn to make a script, tripshitter
>>69317542>"failed to recognize file format"it could be because "$(xsel -b)" wasn't quoted?
>>69316006I recommend the other way round:- install Linux on a separate disk- install virt-manager (installs QEMU for dependencies)- dd the windows install, the whole disk- point libvirt to that image while creating a new VMThat's it, no need to dualboot if you forgot something.
>>69317637bah i had that error when i toyed with my script earlier today but don't remember what silly reason was the issue
>>69317624Still didn't seem to work honestly VLC seems to be the better option here.
>>69314151>The issues stem from the Monthly Rollup update>updatethere's your problem.DO NOT UPDATE WINDOWS 7!
>>69317321Disable updates through fucking gpedit It will never revert back after any shit >tf I upgraded from 1709 _ 1803 _ 1809 without any problems
>>69317793Do Microsoft limits your screen size too?
>>69316768I like Xfce as well. I used to run it on my Chromebook through Crouton in order to use python, R and their IDEs before you could do the Linux Beta thing.
>>69317778>Don’t update >Lmao just leave your front door open only idiots get robbed
Microsoft hates Windows 7. It represents the escape route from telemetry and forced reboot hell. They are desperate to close the exit ramp by crippling Windows 7. It's just like what they did to Windows 95 when they wanted to force Windows 98 with Internet Explorer integration.
>>69318291>leave your front door open
I turned off automatic updates long ago, this affects only normies.
>>69318332>forced reboot hell.easily fixable by disabling the correct task in task scheduler. From 1803 onwards you need to do that as user SYSTEM though, because administrator accounts no longer has rights to manage those tasks.
>>69314208Haven't updated since 2015.
>just make a script to keep the OS from breaking when M$ pushes a update broW10 sounds a lot like Linux in 2004 lmao
>>69314151>updating past SP1 WEW
>>69314151> Updating Windows
>>69322704>already using an outdated OS with poor security>then not even bothering to update itI thought this was a tech board
>zdnetWhat is this? 1993?
Don't care. I prefer operating systems that actually runs on hardware made in this decade.
Is Win10 enterprise LTSB the way to go for windows 10 versions?
>>69314151i dont even update at all. unless its in the pre-pack from digitalseven or whatever the fuck it is.
>>69314492why the fuck should i run win8 or win10? what is better then win7? outside of linux.
>>69314151time to upgrade losers
>>69321283>gets ransomware'dheh, nothing personal kid
>>69316127I love Debian and use it on loads of servers but seriously, use Ubuntu or Linux Mint
>>69314151>As Born notes, monthly rollup KB4480970 addresses a serious PowerShell flaw and adds extra mitigations for Meltdown and Spectre side-channel attacks.Average consumers will never see this shit ever.Only a few businesses will ever see these exploits used on them.
>>69323785That works until MS changes the kb number
>>69323992are there any sites to alert me of faulty of updates
>pRiVatE COMpaNieS dO beTTer updaTEs hurrClosed source fags eternally blown the fuck out.
>>69314151I had Windows 7 STARTER on an old lap top when I was a kid because my parents were too stingy to pay for the OS back then.
>>69326502It was child abuse, essentially.>>69326502
>>69323937just don't do retarded shit and you won't get ransomware
>>69314285get advanced system care, it is the antidote to microsoft's faggotry>>69314329yes you can. It's called pause.But the breaking stuff is real. I bought this laptop quite recently and everytime i restarted it, it bricked and i had to reset. The fix, of course, is to never restart but to shut down and boot up again.
>>69318332>telemetryyou can turn that off, but you'll have to check it after each update because they'll probably have turned it back on>forced restartnowhenever i get that notification i just postpone the update for a week and next week do the same thing until i actually want to update
>>69324010no but you can wait 6 month after the update is released
>>69326612>advanced system caremalware
>>69326628you cannot disable telemetry on windows 10
Why would people update Win7? I haven't in like 10 years, and it's running just fine.
>>69314492What doesn't make sense? You need to stop eating so much naan bread anon it's turning you into a prajeet
>>69314477>Disable in services>Disable in group policy>Still updatesNigger
>>69323992in this case they would change the kb number after they fix the fuckup, which is fine
>>69323401>muh securityI thought this was a tech board
>>69314421>@3.0GhzWhat the fuck? My 4770k is 3.5 stock
>>69314208At least we don't have all files in some folders like Documents deleted...
