He didn't say Windows 7 will become unusable, just that using the Internet will be risky (true) and you won't be able to upgrade your hardware in the long run (also true).
Lack of security updates generally just means your network services could get fucked (generally not a huge issue for home users behind NAT firewalls, but you could be more vulnerable if you need port forwarding for gaming), and you could get fucked by new holes in the way the OS handles data from the Internet (for example, possibility for something like fonts or a JPEG to become an attack vector because of vulnerabilities in the OS facilities).
The only real criticisms I can offer about the video are unnecessary FUD about automatic updates (seriously guys, just install them as soon as you're not busy instead of deferring them for several weeks, or use wifi and turn on mobile data restrictions), and no mention of dual booting (e.g. use Linux or Windows 10 for web browsing and Windows 7 for legacy applications).

Most of the issues from windows update stems from the fact no one shuts down there damn PC and updates decide to pile up when patch Tuesday hits
My PC gets shut down every night and when updates do come around they take as a MAX maybe 30 secs to install on shutdown and startup, I’m never intruded on about updates with the only exception being the security patch for the exploit that wannacry took advantage of

If you plan on using old a old windows version you have to put in the effort to harden the system. The extra updates even if installed manually. Making a custom install disk with non-essentials windows services removed, and remove not make invisible internet explorer, media player, etc. to reduce your attack surface. Having a image/media/web viewer that doesn't use system codecs and is updated, even if you have to compile yourself. Restrictions/policies on what executables can run, emet too. There's so much. Not trying to shill Linux or win 10, I use 8.1 and have been researching what it would take as a option to safely run a old os with internet access.
Example: I remember a kernel vulnerability involving font rendering, I think that was windows, if you don't have a security update for that and your browser uses system font rendering, you're out of luck.

>Have second monitor
If you accidentally have the taskbar on the side of your screen so that it would be in the middle of the two displays, then switch to "extend this display", Windows crashes. Doesn't let you fix it or move the taskbar or anything, it just fucking crashes. Start bar stops working, taskbar starts glitching out, nothing opens anymore, it crashes.

>mfw I haven't installed any update on my W7 main machine for at least 4 years

>> No.70134493

The main issue is: Windows is proprietary, closed-source software, which GREATLY hinders progress in such efforts. If a maker of proprietary software stops supporting a product or won't implement the fixes you want/need, you're SCREWED.

Learn about software freedom: https://www.fsf.org/about/what-is-free-software https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_software

If Windows was free as in freedom software, like GNU/Linux, someone could just fork Windows 7 and continue their own development of it, or take Windows 10 and turn it into the OS everyone wants. Of course, this probably won't happen anytime soon.

My suggestion: switch to GNU/Linux. There is also BSD and other libre operating systems such as Plan 9/9front that may interest some enthusiasts. Unless you critically rely on some piece of proprietary software that has no alternative (most people don't), you really should make the switch. Operating systems, of all things, should not be proprietary in this day and age.

>> No.70138683

The more I use Windows 10 (and I used it for a while) the more problems I see, to be honest. And this is not like other people who get BSODs or a slower system, anything like that. I just mean generally, it's not a good system. It gets to a point where it's stable and without me noticing it updated and now there's an issue here or there. Or I try to do something that I used to do years ago, and it's suddenly giving me issues and wasting my fucking time.

Example: I'm into gay ming. Or at least I play games ocassionally and my hardware is nothing to be proud of for games (i5 4460 + rx 570 8gb) but I've always wanted to have a system that actually took advantage of that. That didn't fall behind just because. I thought 10 would be it, newer software is better tailored to work on that piece of trash w10 is, so might as well. The issue is, now there's this update that does affect me because of my haswell processor, taking away that fucking benefit and perhaps even getting worse.

Another thing that I have had problems with, and it requires fixing every fucking time I reinstall is drivers. Sound drivers for instance. I have to enable MSI support and install newer drivers than what windows update provides, but I have to get them from a different vendor. Otherwise the sound stutters every now and then or there's some weird crackling. I don't know why it happens now, but curiously enough it happens on 2 different motherboards with the same integrated sound card. Or the 360 gamepad. I have 2 of these, one official and another one 3rd party and the windows 10 drivers for them cause an annoying bug where the gamepad will start vibrating randomly and never stopping until I disconnect it and connect it again. Solution? Use Windows 7 drivers for the 360 controller on Windows 10. 2009 drivers. Old shit that supposedly, by googling, give BSODs but to me actually fucking work without having that bug. And I have to manually install and pick those.

Not all. The gaylo collection and some unsubstantial trash like crackdown 3 or forza horizon don't work on 7. Other games run about 10 to 15% worse, like GTA V. There's a few other games that needed to be updated to run proper on Windows 7 and 8.1. I remember when SFV came out (another trashy game to be fair) and that game would stutter like mad, stopping visuals for several seconds every time, if played on 7 or 8.1 on windowed mode, but played totally fine on 10. Back then, that is.

It doesn't even matter anymore though, because MS is in the process of further patching their system in order to make things "more secure" and worse for performance to the point where 7 will still be a better option.

windows 10 is great if installed on an SSD and if it has no programs running, other than chrome and the game you are playing. When I am done with my work I will often boot into windows to play video games. It's basically like Xbox for PC, highly recommended

If you have to mention disassembly, you have never done it in your life.

It's not an option with a project this big, which is also protected under copyright law and patents which will nail you if you attempt to distribute decompiled code.
