Gonna continue this thread.

Is it worth going back to Windows 7?
Currently rocking 10 like 90% of /g/ but there are certain things that are stupid.

What are some reasons to go back to Windows 7?

Yea man, something else that I liked about 7 was just how simple and clean it is.
Honestly I feel like Windows 10 seems a little bloated at times when going through the menus for example. I hate all the metro and ads and telementry spywate as well.

>>56056244
10 is just 7 with more bloat, ads, bugs, forced DWM, telemetry and DX12.

If you don't care about DX12 (it's still irrelevant right now) then you have no reason whatsoever to use 10.
Wait another year and then things might be different and 10 might actually be less shit then too.

8.1 is a legit option as well, in fact if you don't mind having DWM always on it's probably a better choice than 7 at this point.

>> No.56056631

>>56056605
I hate DX12, and I actually like Vulkan better because it supports more platforms, which is better for all of us.

i didn't like 10 because:
>control panel half-assedly split into two
>can't disable windows defender (along with updates and apparently dwm?)
>forces its "apps" on you (some can't be uninstalled, some are re-installed with updates that you can't turn off)

From what I understand, there is only one major disadvantage of Windows 7 and that is the fact that there are known memory leakage bugs - especially on 32 bit versions. Now, if you don't use 32 bit, you are fine.

OH, and also, there is a really bad memory bug on Windows 7 if you play Dragon Age Inquisition that does not exist on Windows 10. It would appear now that developers aren't being careful for their Win7 users

Not sure which -shit- software you can't run on admin mode specifically, but what I would consider important (as in, editors or the command prompt) just run fine as administrator with UAC disabled. I always disable it. Fuck, blows my mind you would want to run the calculator as an admin. Hold the fuck on, are you talking about the "app"?

Only thing I despise about 10 is forced dwm.

If you have dual monitors like me, and one is 144hz and the others are less, if you're playing a game on the 144hz and doing anything at all on the second, the game throttles down to 60hz. Only way to fix it was to disable dwm.

This. It comes completely empty and free of bloat when installed, and you can easily set up all programs you need in less than half an hour from scratch. That's what I love about win7, it can satisfy your every need. Windows 10 is a bloated cloud machine, I found it more difficult to use 10 after 7 than I did a Linux distro. Windows 10 took away everything that was good on 7. Windows 7 was a personal OS, while 10 seems more like a public forced mutation.

I don't plan on using Win10 and I'm still on Win7. I did try Win10 during Insider Preview and I have one machine left with Win10 in the house that I plan to revert back to Win7. I had a similar problem back when Vista and Win7 were becoming the thing. XP64 loaded faster than either of them but XP64 lacked drivers. Win7 reached SP1 and I switched again due to drivers. Nothing of value has been gained except driver compatibility. Win8 and Win10 are even worse than Vista so there really is no point. I can toss bblean or litestep on Win7 if I need it to look pretty. I doubt any game that supports DX12 won't do DX11 or perhaps Vulkan so everything is fine.

If by some chance I'm forced to use Win10 for gayming then I'm more likely to just switch to Linux (Manjaro likely with Cinnabuns) and use passthrough. I've already killed off MS Office in the various workplaces I help as well as home. Last step I guess???

I installed Win10 on my Dell Mini1020 (pic related). With XP, it was extremely usable. Not the fasted thing on the block and it choked on H264 video (I'm getting a hardware h426 accelerator for a few bucks soon), but good for general use and especially handy as a second laptop to manage my client's environments.

With Win7 on it, it slowed a bit but was still reasonably usable. Still, I preferred the extra speed I got from it but in order to get the Win10 update I had to be on 7...

Win10 was a steaming pile of shit on my netbook. EVERYTHING took several minutes to launch. Launching Firefox could take upwards of 2-3 minutes just to open. There was CONSTANT churning of the hard drive, there was almost never a point where the CPU wasn't pinned at 100% usage. Moving a window across the screen would cause severe performance issues.

Against my wishes both my wife and two of my kids installed Win10 on their machines (two core i3 laptops and a dual core pentium desktop). All of them have issues.

I switched my netbook back to WinXP and it's running just fine again,

How can you call it a menu when it doesn't provide access to any functionality ?
That button just shows the labels for the little icons on the left, and that's it. It's not a menu. It's just as useless and annoying as most of MS's other shitty little hamburger buttons that serve the same purpose.

Microsoft has stated that the performance on 10 should be on par or close to Win7, especially after the update that was released in Nov/Dec. (http://www.techrepublic.com/article/massive-windows-10-update-could-turbo-charge-windows-7-machines-says-microsoft/). I installed that update, my machine ran even slower. I chalked it up to maybe being 32 bit instead of 64, so I tossed Win7-64 on my netbook and did the upgrade again, then the massive update. Still ran like a constipated turtle shitting molasses.
