  2. It collects heaps even apps that you open that has not reliance to Microsoft (telemetry). I have even disabled this using 0 and 0 shut up.

  3. The only thing stopping me from removing windows is Adobe products especially photoshop. When Adobe provides support to linux, good bye windows.

  4. Man….that's an empty video. Linux have so much to offer and you not even show a bit about Linux. Why you made this video? Make it again and show the beauty about Linux like an example Linux Mint that is my favorite…… Or let's say Ubuntu and many many more. I still keep Linux Mint 9 in my DVDs package plus other. That's so shameful that you make a video about one the best OS in the world and you don't show nothing. Wow………………………………………………………………………………………….

  5. I switched to Mint yesterday, it's fun to learn new things but as a gamer I do notice some frame drops and slowdowns that I didn't on Win10 though I am certain it will get better due to Steam.

  6. A couple of problems Linux has in breaking into the mainstream are that there are so many various distributions and even in the same one there can be any number of shells. It is too fractured at the moment.

    Second would be that all too often you need to go to the command line. Now that's not much of an issue for me but for most people they simply just want to use a GUI.

  7. Chris, nice vid, quite enjoyed the genuine "rolls eyes"
    A few thoughts,
    •The Windows Telemetry stalls.
    All the more scary knowing how efficiently, what commands can do Ja!
    •Did you ever do the 8/10 alpha or beta thing?
    Windows Should be well, explicitly amazing & enjoyable to use.
    But LAYERlayerLAYERED AF.
    • lastly ever use AV, circa 3.5" days?
    AV used to clean infections & fix issues. ACTUALLY IMMUNIZE
    – lol, I even saw the AV writers go to dodgey sites and d/l and clean & run with no issue, freaking midi music playing number display exe's <- so to speak 😉

    Seems privacy and free choice are not allowed in certain OS's.

  8. Steve Jobs once said to Bill Gates that Apple OS is the best operating system (between Windows and Mac OS). Gates replied "Windows doesn't have to be" (the best, since I've got all these contracts with IBM PC clone makers and thus will dominate the market). This was basically true at the time and obviously Gates took this idea to heart by being OK with producing a significantly inferior product ever since. I rationalized moving to 7 since it was about as close to an intuitive OS as Msft had put out only to watch them scrap it and sabotage it for 10. On a scale of 10 to the worst mess posing as an OS it is properly named. One note about the virus issue; I consider W10 itself to be a virus.

  9. Have you experienced the abomination that is Windows 10 "S mode" yet? Coworker brought in his home laptop recently with S mode because he was having problems with the WiFi card. The big thing about S mode is it requires all apps to be vetted through the Windows Store in order to run… this includes drivers (pretty sure you can see where this is going lol). Oh, and to disable S Mode, you have to go through the store and of course it requires Internet… FYI: if you run in to such a situation, try using a USB wireless card or tether it to your phone for Internet 😉

  10. agree with your explanations of cortana and homegroups and workgroups.. it suxxxxxxxxxxxxxx 🙁
    and its soooo tideous to even disable that bytch cortana T_T 🙁
    and about package management, I have windows 7 and windows 10, and i have to use them
    not that i want to use, but yeah I can see the differences on everyday usage.. the only difference between
    windows 7 and 10 on they work is just 10 – 20%
    Mann, also about anti virus, i dont know why do they even implement it still,

    like in today's day, there's ransomewares, cryptowares and what not.. and
    this shitfender does nothing just sits there does some scan on system on random times
    and uses ur resources and what do u get after the 30-40 min scan? nothing >.<
    annnnnnnnnnnnd yet, I have to use windows, Just wish there comes out some good OS
    in market that is just genuine to use and doesnt just have blue symbol of genuine OS

  11. Ever since Steve died, macOS has become buggy as hell!!! While Windows looks better and better.

  12. Like you I started using Windows 3.11 and used most all versions up to and including Windows 10 64b. I still use an older version of Windows Server and a Windows 10 laptop. Otherwise all my desktops now are either Ubuntu or Linux Mint. I try to avoid using Windows as much as possible these days.

  13. I began using Linux in the mid to late 90's I think Red Hat 3 or 4 was my first distro, I am no expert, but agree Windows is generally inferior. I presently run 1 x Win 10 PC and 4 other Linux systems, I rarely use the Windows machine, despite it being a powerful touchscreen model.

  14. *Other could be *nix based systems but also any device that connects to the internet- like Android/Chrome. Linux is about 2%. Also Windows is part of Linux coding and vice-versa. The world has moved on and MS & Windows has moved with it. Also Ubuntu uses tracking and it is the most popular Linux desktop environment. Garbled arguments, they should charge for it followed by the statement that they don't really anyway (which is true unless you are business and enterprise).

    You can disable Edge in Background Apps and don't have to use it- the list of misguided moaning.

  15. yeah they waste all their money developing shitt like cortana but take away visuals so you have to live with you pc looking like garbage as well as working like it? why dont they spend the money to at least fix security and networking what the f#@# are they thinking?

  16. "While Microsoft is known for many things, it is best known for Windows – and for years, rumors have swirled for years that major parts of the operating system were developed in Israel, something the company has confirmed although it has never specified just which components of Windows are “Israeli.” Gates, who does know, wasn’t telling either, but he was “very happy” to wish the Microsoft Israel R&D center a happy 25th anniversary.'

  17. "Microsoft Israel has long been credited for contributing significantly to the development of major parts of the Windows software  as well as its IT security and telecommunications technologies."

  18. Advising windows 10 users in another of your videos to download and install an executable and speaking out against windows for allowing such freedom is a bad look.

  19. In your first chart, the "Unknown" could also be people turning off the default windows options for tracking (I think many of these have been disabled by default as of 8.1)… it explains why it is in sync with the decrease of windows numbers starting around windows 8.

    Another defense for the virus situation is also the fact that most windows users ignore the warnings about running as admin or running untrusted apps and just do it anyway. When you get millions of people doing this, it's going to seem a lot worse than linux users who are more likely to be computer savvy (because you need to be to run linux). This is why windows added defender, because they know the vast majority of their user base is incompetent when it comes to computers.

    But I do agree that the network sharing has always been tedious and fiddly, and Cortana is cancer.

  21. Just installed Win10 Pro Workstation, first opening of the start menu, full of cartoon looking game BS including candy crush. Yep, that is what I want on a professional workstation – children's games. M$ has lost its collective mind.

  22. if you have two computers you can have windows on the stronger one and stream steam with steam inhome and hamachi to linux ez peasy and play anywhere

  23. I’m dual booting Windows and Linux. I can’t give up on Windows just yet because I’m still in college and some programs like 3ds Max, Cantasia or Rational Rose are not on Linux (I can’t replace any of them because they or their file extensions are required for my studying right now)
    So when the summer vacation hits I’ll mess around with Linux or maybe even Hackintosh on my laptop

  24. The rise in Linux adoption is because more and more data sci / info sys folks are switching to Linux / open source in order to have complete control of their analytics. The biggest issue in data sci is bias. Bias can be created by the user when they overfit their data and create erroneous results, or by something going on in the tools they're using that they don't know about. When you use a closed-source tool, OS, etc.. you're essentially adding a "black box" to your process. You have no idea if that black box is doing something to create bias in your neural network, algorithm, etc. Only way to be sure is to use open source where you can validate all the code and be sure. Or, you run a bunch of AI test runs on the closed-source black box to see if you notice any kind of pattern of bias coming out the other end. (You can create simulations to test what's going on in black boxes.. essentially it's like sending in a bunch of blind mice into a dark cave.. you can't see what's going on inside, but you can see what they look like going in and what they look like coming out, and if you can collect enough outputs you can start to get an idea of what the black box might be doing.. and determine if it has bias). Since that's a PITA in and of itself, it's easier to just install something open source, like Linux, Python / Scikit / R, etc and just go to town knowing the code is there for you to scrutinize if you want. Data sci has been cornered by Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Facebook (big companies) for a while now, but more college grads are going into data sci and more companies are wanting data scientists to take their analytics to the next level. And, they're willing to do what it takes to get these folks up and running… and that includes shifting over to using open source tools for a data science lab to let the sci folks go nuts.

  25. I like Linux, but game on Windows. Also, a lot of tech industry still revolves around Windows. So, I keep up with Windows. But, MS keeps pissing me off more and more with Windows every chance they get. They got rid of QA folks and push more and more testing on end-users and inside program users. They recently made it if you manually click on the "check for updates" button they opted you into early release program to test their shit without warning you at all. (!) For a while, every major update that came out would simply reset everything you had previously setup or changed on your system. (Major piss points for forcing me to go through all my setups again). They telemetry keeps getting turned on again and again, and each time they seem to find some way to force it to stay on. They've neutered Pro editions of Windows to be a joke (Group Policy editor hardly works, and after dicking aroudn you realize Pro is just Home edition but with a few bells and whistles to still give you a pat on the head and make you feel like you're in control when you're not). I've had issues with the Window Store freezing up one PC which I've submitted bug reports about and nothing has been done. Because of the shoddy way MS updates Windows these days, every time an update comes out, it seems like it fixes 2 things and breaks something else. (EG: last update, it seemed like right-clicking to create a new folder took forever for the "make new…" menu to open. After this recent update, when you click on the start menu, it takes forever to list the program icons. Just dumb shit keeps changing each time the system updates.)

  26. Good video.
    Windows 10 is absolute garbage, I'm still on Windows 7 and I'm going to stay for the next few years, Its great OS and even thou its support life ends in a year you can still comfortably run it for the next few years.
    Talking windows not been secure at one point of not receiving patches and such, having windows 10 is more dangerous than anything else.
    You right, maybe not next month or year but MS will see soon enough the biggest decline in their profits and will lose ton of market shares and who knows maybe good buy MS unless they will make drastic turn around and stop the nonsense.

  27. On my X2700 AMD; 32GB DDR4; 1TB Samsung NVMe; and a Nvidia 2080ti. I installed Windows 10 Pro 64bit 1809 from a WDS Server in about 6mins. I'm at the desktop at in 11mins. Post to Desktop is around 13 Seconds. Run nothing but AAA game titles. I also run most of all Adobe Suite Software for work dealing with 4k Video development and editing. I guess i would use Linux but the tools and games i use are windows only… Also Office 365 has worked out great for my company. Integration of Onedrive into Office 365 as almost wiped out our old File Server.
