Windows is botnet.
>but it has other cool things
Yeah, but it's botnet.
>but you can turn the botnet off
Yeah, but the fact that there even is botnet to turn off tho.

Linux is superior for this reason.

Windows 10 will still track you despite turning those features off. Literally the only way around this is to block communication between Microsoft's servers and your PC is via the router which breaks Windows.

i'm typing this from linux, so i like it, but besides ubuntu, which is also botnet, no distro is ready for the stupidity of the lowest common denominator. i just spent 2 hours yesterday trying to get my server to transfer data at 1gbps, despite it already using the correct driver, and the fix was to remove and install the same driver. it's buggy, and its annoying, and as such, windows is easier.

Oh noes, I have 24 cores on Linux but my mouse is not even lagging.
When will Linux catch up to this great Windows-feature?

Seriously? Why didn't you try install Linux yet?

>>61422752
this, also linux runs older games perfectly fine, you couldnt play starcraft 1 without glitches (they have patched is recently now its fine..)
>>
>>61421792
Lol it's true. The irony is they could always dual boot or at the least boot into a USB drive with Linux on it with persistent storage. The whole "it's hard argument" is becoming worse by the day.

What is GPU passthrough. Also fuck off back to /v/

>>61421925
Forget the fact Windows 7 is backdoored, it's still the most vulnerable, bug-ridden OS, and they expect you to pay for it. The fact something completely free and developed by a community of neckbeards works better, and provides more safety and privacy than a bug-ridden mess of an OS like Windows is ridiculous. I kinda wish Windows was better because at least then it wouldn't be so completely fucked up.

TW:Warhammer
Planetary Annihilation
Both of these run better on Linux than Win 10 (That is to say, they run at all) and have official Linux releases to boot. There was an "upgrade" to Win10 about a year ago that borked my computer which previously played TW just fine. I was bitching all last week about it. I though my GPU was end of life/ fragged but it still ran Witcher 3 just fine. Basically anything offpiste or tricky Win can't handle. Thats just me and my hardware. And many other people.
>Inb4 it works for me
Thats great and I'm happy for you. But some of us are having real problems that just didn't exist before Win10 and its "features" came along.
I was told when I bought my PC that I wouldn't get the best from my rig new chips thats why it only shipped with win10. But Win7 users are enjoying games a lot more than us Win10 cucks. This was supposed to be the generation where we P.C master race BTFO console pesants forever but thats not the way it turned out thanks to Micros**t and its obsession with data collection. If it isn't on their list of tailored for titles they do not give a fuck. I blame Nvidia partly but they can never be worthy of the level of contempt reserved for Microsoft and its system breaking ways.
