I got both win 7 and 8.1 in a VM.
8.1 after the proper setup is smoother for whatever reason.

I tried 10 and it was crap, still got it in a VM just for the sake of it but it kinda sucks considering all the work I had to put on it to disable shit while 8 took me like 15 minutes to set everything and not just the telemetry shit.

I hope the next windows is more in line with 7 and 8.1 but that's probably never going to happen. On the bright side PCIe pass-through is not that hard although the most stable on requires you to waste double the shekelz in the gpu area.

Yep. Running both 7 and 8.1 on parallels, 8.1 is smooth, 7 ain't. 7 just has shitty memory management as well. 8.1 is better designed for toasters because they tried to sell many of those in the shape of fucking tablets.
>>
>>63368768
Running both in a VM, 7 with classic or basic theme seems the smoothest.

Honestly, how is Windows 8.1?
I know it had a real bad rap in the beginning, but is it a good alternative for somebody who needs good Hi-DPI support but doesn't want Windows 10?
>>
>>63369581
Literally make a VM, Download the iso, install, then install classic shell and give it a try.
>>
>>63369581
Yeah. Hell on W10 you get some blurry shit with a few applications on high DPI. It's a pretty decent system and most of the shit it got bad rap for was shit before it was patched or the start menu.

What's /g/'s current solution to updates?

Update, but try to disable the telemetry?

or

Installing updates until the rollups, and then using the security only updates from

Didn't Microsoft say that Windows 10 was the last proper Windows release and that they were switching to a rolling release model?

I still use Windows 7 on my home PC. Works fine for games and browsing. The latest software is still designed to be Win7 compatible so I see no reason to "upgrade" to a newer OS with a shittier UI just yet.

8.1 is my favorite if 7, 8.x, and 10. it feels better optimized for whatever reason and is typically a bit faster than 10. it has a few quirks such as edge of screen hotspots for multiple programs which may take some time to get used to, but once you do everything is piss easy to do. 8.1 just werks.

still wish i could continue to use windows 2000, though

Install Windows 8.1, then install Classic Shell.

I just downgraded to Windows 7 a few days ago since the latest update on Windows 10 hiked up my main disk usage to 100% every time I was online.

I love Windows 7, it's super zippy without all the telemetry running 24/7.

Screen tearing while scrolling is a little irksome tho.
