That's what you get for buying games gated behind a DRM service.
The funniest thing is that they sell games which literally only work on XP without some heavy manual patching.
So basically those games are now officially lost and your temporary license void.
>>
>>420256512
In WinXP, you're limited to DX9 and older games. I can't think of any modern major games that support DX9 besides CSGO, which was made two years before XP's mainstream support was ended.

If you actually read the article it says it's because Steam uses a chromium based browser for the client (to browse the store, etc) and that is not getting any more support in those systems, if you want to blame someone blame Google, not Valve.

Some games flat out will refuse to work on modern OS due to not being coded future proof, like Return Fire or V-2000. Of course the 10 year old kids here never heard of old games and only care about the latest Babbyfield and CoD and think people compain because they are stuck in time or something.

Just go debian or manjaro linux.
Debian is easy mode, but some of the programs are a little dated, but nothing ever conflicts/crashes.
Manjaro need you to google the first few days if you have never used linux and have some basic questions.

For old games you can check Winehq before trying it to see if they are supported:
https://www.winehq.org

I used debian on a laptop for a few years and switched to full time manjaro on my main pc almost a year ago.

There are some titles that you cant run in wine, but if you really need to play every game that gets released you can always dual-boot

anyone who's working or has ever worked for the government in any sector knows how goddamn incompetent they are when it comes to literally anything. If you think they're capable of combing through the data they collect beyond the terrorist buzzwords then you're paranoid. If you still don't like it, move to a different country where their governments are somehow even more incompetent.

7 is basically just slightly shinier and faster windows XP.

8 is basically just an Apple wannabe UI reskin with tile bullshit and the start of Cortana. However at this point there are still options to use more classic stuff.

10 goes all-in on the new UI bullshit, has forced updates, bloatware similar to an out of store phone, and telemetry harder than any Windows before it.

Also like the switch from XP to Vista, there are frequent compatibility problems with stuff not working well on 10 compared to 7 and 8 due to the larger changes in architecture. That and even less ways to workaround all that shit when on Windows 10.

>7 is basically just slightly shinier and faster windows XP.
no it's not. it's faster and shinier vista, which is nothing like xp. vista was a dramatic departure from xp in enough ways that it ended up being a technical mess. a lot of that was the move to the newer driver model that broke compatibility with tons of devices until the device manufacturers put out new drivers, and some never did.

I mean I don't pay attention to this kind of shit that much, but I saw my mother and sister upgrade their laptops to Windows 10, and it looks fucking terrible.

>>420268197
while you are correct that drm means they won't be there forever for you unless valve specifically provides some recourse, dropping support for xp is not supportive evidence of that. it's just dropping support for a system that significantly less than 1% of steam's userbase uses in order to be able to actually continue developing the application using modern standards

If a game in the store runs on Windows XP why cut life support for it? There's absolutely no justifiable reason to disable the access to games as well.
With this move it's very likely that in the future support for other operating systems will get cut as well (Windows 7, early versions of Windows 10), making impossible to run certain games from a certain era anymore.

It's not a matter of wanting to block access to certain users. They just don't want to invest time trying to find solutions to keep XP support going. It's literally a waste of time and resources. A lot of companies have dropped XP support, way before Valve even. I actually didn't even know it was supported. There's nothing scummy about deciding you don't want to develop for 17 year old software anymore. Like I said, they're not going out of their way to make sure XP wont work, they're just not going to be taking it into consideration with future builds which will likely break things. Barely any games released now days support XP properly.

And what does it accomplish i know its a defeatist attitude but whata the point most people are just going to have windows 10, use shit like snapchat, have their data tracked even if they dont want too, what about 20 years down the line what if theres no more options? I have windows 7 because of all this stuff but what you me some other anons for what, so that microsoft cant look into our shit but around 100 million other people they can, we dont make a difference and really unless a thread like this pops up, no one says shit, I dont know about you but I dont run huge campaigns to close down windows 10.

I mean i get it give them an inch they'll go a mile but when 85% of people are giving them that inch what do you do, just refuse to play ball till you die? I feel silly like im a fedoralord trying to give a fucj you to big corporations when in reality they already won and I, you, and maybe everyone else in this thread without windows 10 could die and it wouldnt affect anything, it's like we have a nuclear shelter and we are the 1% but really its just waiting to die now, they'll get everyone in the future wont they?

Those cracks are on a game-to-game basis. I'm talking a fix to GFWL that allows it to by bypassed and permits people to play the single player parts of the game. Valve would face less refunds and complaints for selling these literally broken games. Save them from a call to the BBB too

What's the point of going over at 16 at this point if the most demanding thing you do on your PC is game? Also Professional comes strapped with telemetry that HP never did.

Mac is refusing to implement vulkan and is pushing metal as a graphic development api.
Metal is made more for tablet/iphone games.
You will litterally get less games than linux in the long run if devs move from dx12 to vulkan

they can't add windows 7 to this soon enough

I think 10 is fine, but they did fuck some people with that creator update in regards to nividia cards. Really fucking stupid that they had DVR set to record in the background by default.

Which version of W10 is least "phone-like" and is easier to strip the telemetry from but can still play windows store games like Forza?
>>
>>420270378
How is that an argument?

>>420258438
I would run windows 7 if I had a choice.

I own new PC hardware and the newest MSI mobos only support windows 10 so I was forced to upgrade or do some really REALLY pain-in-the-ass hackjobs to get it working on windows 7.

Fuck microsoft though, the moment an OS comes along that can play every windows game I'm leaving microsoft and never coming back to any of their services.

windows is still a huge chunk of user base. Won't happen until that drops significantly. I could probably count on one hand how many steam XP users there are still

Okay, but the real question is: when will they drop support for Windows 7? Because I don't ever plan on switching to 10. I'll switch to Debian, maybe, but that only represents a fraction of my Steam library. So then I have to ask: are they ever going to drop support for Linux? Then the wheels start turning, and I realize I don't own any of these hundreds of games, and maybe I shouldn't support their service anymore if I'm taking the long view. I have Atari 2600 games that still work. This whole license thing is dependent on something completely out of my control.

How?
If you want to make a high quality mainstream game atm you use dx12 because it gives better preformance than OpenGL.
Dx12 is windows only.
Vulkan is the new alternative to dx12 that is open source so every platform can use it.
mac/apple doent want this and would rather use metal thats made for iphone/pad.
Why would you as a dev that has one of your selling points being graphics use anything other than vulkan/dx12?
When new engines get developed some of them will use vulkan since its almost the same as dx12 and has some thing that are better cause they know what turned out to be bad in dx12.

Bigger issue is that this shows that with time they will drop older OS's from both using steam or even launching Steam games as time goes on. They won't necessarily wait this long the next time.
Their older drops of OS's were a bit over the 10 year mark, about 12 or 13 years. Windows 7 came out in 2009 so that probably only has a few more years left before Valve drops it too.
>>
>>420259850
I use win10, never had an issue with it. I keep it offline most of the time, and play whatever I want without issue. You know why it doesn't bother me? Because the telemetry really doesnt matter.
Get upset about something that matters, you NEET neckbeard.

>>420263276
Never did that.
Just remove the quicklaunch icons and install preferred replacements.

You'll forever be more btfo if you accept W10
