What was the last time Windows actually broke that isn't some obscure bug nobody but vir/g/ins are aware of?
Windows 10 has been the smoothest experience ever for every tech illiterate out there. It's install and go.

>> No.71044770

That time when Windows 10 erased your documents.

>> No.71044788

You mean Windows NT? Besides, if windows breaks yourself you better hope you have a direct solution. Most of the time fixing a windows installation involves booting up a recovery disk to access the terminal. And then you have to deal with the horrors of the windows subsystem. It's a miracle that linux, as complicated as it is, is even able to be understood unlike the enigmatic complexity of windows, whose own developers have long forgotten the mechanisms of. In fact many bugs on Linux are fixed by the users. A task that wouldn't be possible if not for it's simplicity.

>What was the last time Windows actually broke that isn't some obscure bug nobody but vir/g/ins are aware of?
Not the guy you are responding to, but last time I installed Windows 10 (about 2 years ago), it would immediately after installation download and install Windows updates, which included a broken update for my Ethernet NIC, which made Windows shit itself on the next reboot and I had no network connectivity whatsoever. The solution was to take the computer offline and reinstall Windows, disable updates and only then bring it online. Me and the sysadmin eventually figured out a way to blacklist that particular update. AFAIK there were never a fix for the broken Ethernet driver update, at least for around a year. I've changed job since and haven't used Windows since, so I don't know if it was finally fixed.

>> No.71045046

Sure, but at the very least all linux users are the kind of people who can install their own OS. On Windows that's maybe a quarter of users, and I'm being generous here.

>what was the last time windows actually broke that isn't some obscure bug nobody but vir/g/ins are aware of?
oh, so it's OK if windows sometimes breaks? lmao
>windows 10 has been the smoothest experience
not for me, no. At least, compared to linux
here's my experience:
- explorer.exe crashes when opening folder of many pictures on NVMe SSD (works fine on linux)
- if it doesn't crash, lags, like opening on HDD
- install updates; reboot few times
- want to shut down computer? nope, install updates first
god forbid you'll use windows 10 with hdd (disk usage 100%)
or using windows 10 with slow internet (downloads updates or features whenever it wants)
I'd say, that only reason (for me) to use windows is video games, it's smoother than linux (because some games doesn't work on wine stable or as intended), even then I have random game crashes

windows is shit, if you disagree, you don't really belong on /g/ (mind the sticky); >>>/v/ is more your audience, buddy.

>> No.71045508

>explorer.exe crashes when opening folder of many pictures on NVMe SSD
no it doesnt
>if it doesnt crash, lags like opening on HDD
i never had windows crash or lag on me
>install updates
If you decide to ignore every single update and stack them up a year later they will take time to install with an HDD
>want to shut down computer? nope install updates first
You have the option to shut down your pc without installing an update first
>god forbid you'll use windows 10 with hdd (disk usage 100%)
yes this is a legit issue with windows 10 and it can be fixed by using an SSD
>using windows 10 with slow internet (downloads updates or features whenever it wants)
uhhh no it doesnt is windows, how can slow internet make it windows 10 go autistic?
I'd say, that only reason (for me) to use windows is video games, it's smoother than linux (because some games doesn't work on wine stable or as intended), even then I have random game crashes
I never had a game crash on me but yeah windows supports any and every kind of software natively while linux needs emulators like wine and virtual machines for software that it doesnt support

For me it was a couple of days ago when I plugged my phone into a USB3.0 extension card in my laptop, which instantly made it bluescreen. Before that, it was about a year ago when I did a clean install of 10, and it picked the wrong sound driver out of the 2 that were supposedly compatible. I could switch it in device manager and have it work for a while, until it was reset by updates. Eventually it got fixed after reinstalling the whole OS.

Windows 10 breaks frequently but people don't specifically attribute it to win10 when it does, just 'random computer stuff'. When you use Linux you've specifically gone out of your way to install it and you're hyper aware of what's happening. With windows you're mentally turned off because you've used it your whole life. Look into baby duck syndrome - it's just to do with how people interprate user experiances, not the products themselves.

I have only identified a handful of instances where Linux "shits itself":

A. The end user did something retarded without realizing it.
B. Nvidia drivers can be a pain, and updates can make things go a little wonky. This is more on Nvidia for not following a single standard on Linux.
C. On occasion, updates on a rolling release distro can screw something up.

So, in other words, use hardware that's well supported by the OS, use a stable distribution, and don't be a retard.
