Can we please stop with this whole "Is this closed source software botnet or not?"

I'm really sick of you desperate motherfuckers who want to virtue signal about caring for privacy but too apathetic to bother using FOSS. You're just looking for any major software vendor to say "we respeck ur privasea, honest" so you can just take them at face value and then shitpost like a fucking retard.

If you care about privacy, you cannot trust closed-source software. I don't care what any company say or do, if you cannot audit the source code you cannot trust the software, it really is as simple as that.

If you use closed-source software, you have to accept there is a possibility of the software working against you behind your back. Trying to argue that any closed-source piece of software respects your privacy is pure and utter delusion.

So I just got a T420 after my t400 packed up on me

The complete Pirate's guide to Windows 10.

First you need to have an activated version of Windows 7 SP1 or Windows 8.1 installed.
Windows 7 SP1 can be activated with Das Loader, Microsoft ToolKit or KMSpico.
Windows 8.1 can be activated with Microsoft ToolKit or KMSpico.

Get the Windows 10 installer/downloader at

You MUST do an upgrade install the first time, and be connected to the internet.
Microsoft no longer uses keys for activation, unless you buy your copy.
Instead Microsoft saves your activation HWID on their activation servers to verify against.

Changing motherboard changes HWID, HDDs, GPUs, RAM etc, do not.

Well it started working for me and many others by changing the language to US. They are rolling out Windows 10 in waves and apparently prioritizing "US users"
Are you telling me that I will need to reinstall Win8.1 and install all updates again before I can even start upgrade to Win10? Shit.
Does Win10 upgrade work with WMware?
No, you don't need to install any updates, just fresh install, activate, upgrade to win10
>no gaemes

Fuck you. I did change the language first and it didn't work, stop talking like you know everything.

You're on /g/ and you seriously think you can just "revoke" consent to pornographic images and that's just the end of it? No consequences from them being uploaded in the first place?

So MPC-HC with CCCP or MPV?
The entire point of photoDNA is to foil people that slightly change the image to change the hash. It can still detect illegal images even if they're slightly modified. It's a little harder then adding one pixel to let you repost a reaction image.

Windows 10; free, stable, but a few things to improve.

No, it's Flash Player's fault :^)

At least Adobe have finally admitted it needs to die.
Do you need more though? Apart from adblock ofc.

Yeah. Extension support so I can use stuff like adblock (personally I use ublock) and better, regular updates. Some transparency and ability to completely turn off the botnet would also help.

They'll do it like SSD companies did: start at 8gb or something and double capacity every year or so until it becomes a useful size.

Alright guys, let's have a friendly Linux thread. Let's stop the shitposting and unnecessary insults/bait and have a productive thread about Linux + other UNIX like operating systems (BSD, OSX, Solaris welcome). People who have questions about migrating to Linux, ask here and maybe /g/ can help. Maybe you have something tying you to Windows, but there might be some UNIX software to help. Remember:
>no bulli
>UNIX > Windows
>CLI isn't scary

Are you saying that this linux can run on a computer without windows underneath it, at all ? As in, without a boot disk, without any drivers, and without any services ?

That sounds preposterous to me.

If it were true (and I doubt it), then companies would be selling computers without a windows. This clearly is not happening, so there must be some error in your calculations. I hope you realise that windows is more than just Office ? Its a whole system that runs the computer from start to finish, and that is a very difficult thing to acheive. A lot of people dont realise this.

Microsoft just spent $9 billion and many years to create Vista, so it does not sound reasonable that some new alternative could just snap into existence overnight like that. It would take billions of dollars and a massive effort to achieve. IBM tried, and spent a huge amount of money developing OS/2 but could never keep up with Windows. Apple tried to create their own system for years, but finally gave up recently and moved to Intel and Microsoft.

Its just not possible that a freeware like the Linux could be extended to the point where it runs the entire computer from start to finish, without using some of the more critical parts of windows. Not possible.

I think you need to re-examine your assumptions.

Nice bait, made me reply, 2/10.
Mint, eOS, or Xubuntu?
I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Linux, is in fact, Windows/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, Windows plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather a free component of a fully functioning Windows system made useful by the Windows corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by Microsoft.
Many computer users run a modified version of the Windows system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, one version of Windows which is rarely used today is often called Linux, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the Windows system, developed by Microsoft.

There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the Windows operating system: the whole system is basically Windows with Linux added, or Windows/Linux. All the so-called Linux distributions are really distributions of Windows/Linux.
