How old are we talking? I decomissioned the first PC I bought with my own money a couple years ago (Q6600-based). It served me 6-7 years before I upgraded, and would still be fine for basic web browsing, office docs, etc.

I've had my gaming PC hooked up to my living room TV for so long that I finally broke down a couple weeks ago and got the old one out of storage to go at my desk. It's still fine for most things I do, although I forgot how much mechanical HDD's suck.

Hey /g/

This was asked last night; no anon, you're safe. Don't over think it. You can be as low as XP and it could be a pirated copy and no one would know the difference because you're going to a newer version that is free. Also, don't waste your time. There are so many back doors from the NSA watching people on Windows 10, do you want to be watched too? I would hope not. Stay on 8 and down. It's your best option.

I have to say, I found myself with some spare time this evening and started researching about these privacy/botnet stuff on Win10, found a bunch of alarming stuff from 2015. Then later I read a few updates on certain articles that showed the evidence people like CheesusCrust provided was kind of flawed and inconclusive, etc. Then I found this article which kind of made me curious to see if it was really that bad or if it was mostly sensationalism.

Looking for a website... it was an archive of all plaintext documents, mostly from 80s/90s usenet posts and shit like that. Mostly tech related stuff.

The website looked like a 15 yo script kiddie wrote it (green on black monospace text) but a lot of the docs on there were interesting and insightful. (see pic for example of this silly aesthetic)

I remember one doc from the mid 90s in particular - talked about how harmful it was that websites were requiring users to use their real names.

My personal opinion on any of that:
Linux is eh. It's not great but it's not bad either.
/g/ will tell you linux over windows because muh open source and non-freeware. Who fucking cares any more. It's not like you're getting in the code any ways so saying that means nothing. That's basically the only reason to use linux. I would say maybe if you have a netbook and wanna slap an OS on it, go with mint.

At that rate, get tablet or a thinkpad. Put W7 on the Pad. I'd rather work with something that doesn't need to be constantly updated VS something that's fine the way it is or gets them once a month at best.

After upgrading to Windows 10 on my Desktop, I've noticed an extremely weird phenomena. I'm hoping someone can clarify.

I have a GTX 760 with 2GB of VRAM. I play games quite a bit, I have MSI Afterburner and RivaTuner working the way I like to show a toggleable on-screen display of temp and usage % info on my CPU, GPU, and how much RAM and VRAM are being used.

So I was extremely surprised now that I booted up XCOM 2 again to test out how it'd work under Win10, to discover that not only did it run way better, I noticed that my VRAM indicator (MEM1)...was way above my 2GB hardware limit? it's sitting at 3184 MB of usage right now.

How the fuck is this even possible?
RAM usage is the same as before, yet my VRAM is somehow showing a value that its hardware couldn't possibly deliver. But the game feels undeniably smoother.

What kind of black magic is this?
