I'm not going to run most of my programs through some emulator with a large performance penalty and probably many incompatibilities. Especially when 7 exists. Be serious.. Maybe by 2025 or so there will be a Linux distro to replace Win7. But right now none of them comes close to the quality of 7.

Because normies are fucking retards and believes everything they read on facebook.

If they one day reads a post on facebook about how "Windows update is evil and destroys your computer over time", you can bet they will immediately go to control panel and turn off updates. Then 30 days later when their data is destroyed by a cryptolocker virus that was patched 14 days prior, you can be certain they will immediately blame Microsoft for not protecting them.

That is why Microsoft made updates impossible to turn off via the GUI, to protect retards from themselves.

You can't

You can go into the registry and disable it but windows updates will probably fuck your registry up at a later date making you have to do it again regardless
>>
>>62414598
Even on default settings it doesn't force restart unless you postpone updates for several weeks, and you can easily change it to not restart at all. People who say their "work" got interrupted are either shitposting or ignored the multitude of warnings they were given and didn't even bother to look at the settings. Why wouldn't you turn off or restart your computer at least once in the space of 2-3 weeks anyway? What are you doing on a desktop that can't be interrupted for weeks at a time?
>>
>>62414631
>Even on default settings it doesn't force restart unless you postpone updates for several weeks,
that just sounds like a delayed force restart
>>
>>62414643
Yes, it forces a restart after giving you a couple of weeks' worth of warnings. I didn't say it doesn't force restart at all by default. Not that it even matters as you can easily just disable reboots entirely, I had 200 days' uptime on a 10 machine before I decided to restart for something.
>>
>>62414631
>>62414643
you can delay security updates for a month and then it will *really* start forcing you with dimming your screen, showing a huge notification and forcing a restart ASAP. If you don't install them for a month you have no one to blame but yourself

Simply download an unmodified ISO via torrent or some webhost and check the SHA1sum afterwards. Even if you're on Windows there are many simple programs available to do this. Heck, even 7-Zip can check checksums IIRC

FYI:
$ sha1sum downloads/win/en_windows_10_enterprise_2016_ltsb_x64_dvd_9059483.iso 
031ed6acdc47b8f582c781b039f501d83997a1cf downloads/win/en_windows_10_enterprise_2016_ltsb_x64_dvd_9059483.iso

I'm not sure. Fortunately the 2015/2016 LTSB ISOs haven't changed at all since release so the checksums are the same as always. I searched around a few sites and this sha1 is the correct one. Unless you believe that ~all sites are talking about some modified botnetted ISO.

It needs to be a service... Legally they need to ask permission from the user before they sell collected information from the user unless it's a service that the user use. If the user owns the software and microsofts snoops, collects info and sells it then it would be like as if a hacker did it. But if it's microsoft's service then they can spy as much as they like and sell whatever they want. According to CISA ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cybersecurity_Information_Sharing_Act ) it's even legal for microsoft to sell or give away passwords, social security numbers and credit card numbers. Internet services are the only "service" where that is the case.

I suspect that it is something that was invented when NSA was not allowed to snoop as much as before due to the 4th amendment. Now they can just buy info from companies because it's legally information given freely to the company and information that the company have freely given to the NSA.

No. The difference is an operating system that isn't a service means I, the owner, get to control how and when it updates, what services it runs, when they run, and even how they run. When an OS, or anything else really, is offered as a service those privileges are removed from me, the would-be owner, and instead managed by a third party. Sure, i might be able to select the level of service i want, but in the end the administration of it is beyond my control. I do not like that something I buy with the express intent of me being the owner of it is treated as a service.
no, I didn't buy it, but that's why I do not like the idea of an OS being a service
