Windows 10 is the most aids system I've ever used. I installed it for hardware compatibility and was promised by /g/ it wouldn't be that bad. Serves me right for listening to a bunch of phoneposting normie retards. They say 11 is even worse and I physically cannot fathom how. I'm just going to get a secondary drive and put some distro on it and use that for everything non windows required.
Dilate harder. Microsoft will cover the bills.

Only if you understand everything that you're going to be intentionally breaking.

>How do I activate?
HWID mimics OEM activation to generate a permanent legitimate license.
(Does not work on VL editions, avoid VL editions unless you enjoy having to deal with KMS breaking and Windows unactivating)

>>Which version should I get?
Comes preinstalled with bloatware apps like games, music, news, weather, etc.
Comes with system apps.
Comes with nothing, no apps, not even MS Store
Search LTSC-Add-MicrosoftStore if you need it.
There are no compatibility differences between versions, all programs/drivers will work on all versions of Windows.

LTSC meant for corporate PCs with 5 years security updates (KMS only).
IoT LTSC meant for retail/medical/etc PCs with 10 years security updates (HWID only).

>Do I even need LTSC?
W10 Home/Pro/Edu/WS/Ent editions are all EoL in 10/2025 (2027 for LTSC) whereas IoT LTSC will be supported until 2032.

I use GNU/Linux on a daily basis, but I disagree with this sentiment completely. A lot of people simply prefer Windows, and that can be the case for a variety of different reasons, with the main one definitely being compatibility and the ease to set everything up. Also, a lot of people need to use Windows due to their work, a lot of software out there doesn't support GNU/Linux at all, and sometimes it's software which is required for someone to work for a specific company or even their states, as much as I do like Wine, I have to admit it'd be a lie to say it always works, far from it. Our Windows brothers belong here on this board just as much as us.
My desktop is running windows, but im typing on a linux laptop.
idk if ill ever buy another version of windows. Once my desktop starts giving me issues or MS drops support of windows 10, im moving to linux full time. Hopefully by then the fabled year of the linux desktop will be in full swing
what other Windows distros do you niggas know of? Ameliorated is nice but AtlasOS looks about the same in spyware reduction but with a bigger security tradeoff for performance. are there any others?

XP Black Edition.
>Can't even log in to certain editions without signing into your MicroCock account
whats the point in pretending you're retarded
Is Atlas open source? If so, then all you have to do is read through the build scripts. Ameliorated is the only custom ISO I know of where the build process is completely open source and well documented.
it is https://github.com/Atlas-OS/
it doesn't have documentation yet though, its "coming soon".
Building custom Windows ISOs is not insanely time consuming, so there's no reason not to try out different methods yourself. For the time being though, Ameliorated is the only version of Windows after 8.1 that I would ever put on a machine that I own.
It can be if your machine is a shitbox (a problem a lot of /g/ has): DISM (which every single one of these customisation tools are ultimately built on) likes lots of CPU power for the final WIM compression step.

Are you really comparing countless millions of dollars to globohomo causes every year, and internal promotion and affirmative action practices at a multibillion dollar international corporation to fucking problem haired retards that maintain some independent Linux distributions? Because the rest of the IT and dev world is pozzed as fuck no matter where you go. You're not supporting shit when you boot up a GNU/Linux distribution. You are supporting straight up satanic globohomo faggotry when you boot into windows, whether you bought it or not (your data is more valuable to them than your money). You're either a shill, or completely brainraped beyond repair. The most notorious pedophiles have used Windows and Mac btw. GNU/Linux and BSD users get bagged for based stuff, like honor killings and spousal murders. Hell, ISIS uses fucking Gentoo. Get wrecked glowfaggot.

It’s this simple. If you use Linux/GNU you have to justify your choice. I do not. I’ve used many different OS and in 2022 Window 10 meets all my needs.
Linux is a schizophrenic mess made from badly fitting pieces crudely sewn together. Also the package manager model of software distribution sucks, your are an eternal slave to the ever rolling present.
How rude, when a literal schizophrenic came up with a more coherent OS than Linux.

Windows 8.1 is still supported. There are a couple of Windows 7 editions that are too. AME is easily built, or downloaded if you're lazy. For everyone else there is Linux, OS X, and even BSD. If you're using a vanilla Microsoft ISO of Win10 or 11, then you're either a Redmond employee, or you have down syndrome, because everything I mentioned above is objectively more private, more flexible, and offers significantly better performance. Seethe more.
