Is Windows 10 worth using now? by GrahamBlanningdale.ffl - Tue, 26 Dec 2017 00:24:15 EST ID:Xzx53TiG No.121495 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

So my hard drive has been fucking up lately so I bought a new one and I'll need to do a fresh install of an OS, I've been using Windows 7 and I like it, but I was wondering if it's a good time to upgrade to Windows 10 yet? I haven't really been keeping up to date with changes they've been making, so if someone could tell me the benefits and the negatives of switching to W10 that'd be real good. Also is it still necessary to change settings to better your privacy while using Win10, if so can someone give me some hints on how to do that. Cheers!

if you really, truly care about privacy, then no, Windows 10 is never going to be good. It's technically possible to remove and disable all (or most of) the tracking, but it's still there.

I hate win 10 for the most part. As person said updates may or 'will' reset your setings. Win 7 pro is
stable. You can save windows 7 to 40 45 ggigs. And save the rest of the HD for storage, point
your media there, torrents etc.

If windows happens to fail, you can reinstall windows and the saved media partition is still there, Hopefullyy though.,

If linux. windows install first ,then a linux distribution after is easiest. For a 'dual boot' scenerio.

https://spout.ussg.indiana.edu/linux/pclinuxos/pclinuxos/live-cd/community/ best in my opinion is
pclinuxos64-kde5-darkstar-2017.11.iso, burn ISO to DVD, then can run it from DVD drive to see if you like it enought to install it. It is minmal, so install from repository, like firefox, etc.

I knew I was gonna get a lot of people saying to install Linux, I tried LInux yeeeears ago, and to be fair it's probably gotten a lot better since I used it, but it was very different and I'm so used to Windows I really don't feel like learning a different type of operating system.

I installed Windows 10 when it first became free (quickly uninstalled it because it sucked) and there was a program that I downloaded that did all the privacy fixes for you, but I can't remember what it is, so if someone could point me in the direction for that.

Because it was suggested so much, I will give Linux another try though. Hopefully I can boot it from a USB though because I don't want to hook my DVD drive up lol

So I've installed it, done all the settings to my liking, installed my programs and I'm absolutely loving it, it's so smooth, nice looking and easy to use and customize. Hard to believe how much it's improved since 2015, when I first used it was very unstable and I was immediately put off by it. I got constant crashes and since installing this one haven't even had a slight hiccup. I've found all the privacy settings I want to turn off easy to find in the settings, so I'm happy.

Try linux mint, it feels a lot like windows in the important parts and is easy to learn. I use it and it's pretty fun. The fact alone that updates don't require a restart of 30min is great

Well adobe sells classes and crap and people lots of people make a living off teaching their apps. So they are intentionally complicated so you can’t just figure them out. You have to fork out tons for the app then tons more for the training. Because Adobe (appname) is “used by businesses and professionals” and people put up with it because they need it on the resume.

It’s all just to make money.

Hey /tech/
I'll be taking my A+ Certification Tests here shortly, and I'm having a bit of test anxiety. I'm currently working a pretty crappy job and I have a promise of a better new job as soon as I'm certified, but the tests are expensive and I could really only scrape enough money together for one shot at the tests.

If any of you are A+ certified and have any advice or words of wisdom I would really appreciate it.

A+ is a junk cert and the test is entirely multiple choice trivia. If you take a practice test and pass comfortably then don't worry about it. If you think you need to improve your score, cramming is a perfectly valid way to regurgitate trivia.

It's just a clever little way that these companies figured out how to squeeze even more money out of computer graduates.

Sup /tech/

I'm not sure if this is a subject better suited for you or /vg/ but hopefully some of you can share some experiences.

So basically I have used the Razer Goliathus Speed mouse pad for about 2 years. Although it's a great pad, I was really having issues with friction under my mouse (yes I would periodically clean the mat but it never seemed as smooth as it once was) so at the suggestion of my friend, I decided to try out a hard mouse mat.

I ended up getting the Corsair MM600 and for the most part, I like it. My problems with friction are obviously gone and I feel like flick shots are a lot easier. Pixel accuracy is still a bit difficult but I've had the pad for almost a week and am hoping I just adjust to it.

I do have one issue though, I tend to sometimes spin out (point at the sky) or the tracking will stop short on big swipes. I've read that sometimes the sensor can't keep up with fast movements, however this is a Logitech G Pro mouse I'm using. I also have used the surface tuning in the software (the hard pad preset seems the best).

I would like to know if anyone here has had similar experiences and if the problems went away after awhile (maybe breaking the pad in or something). I really don't want to stop using the pad but it is fucking me over a bit in FPS games like Siege or Overwatch.

Thank you.

Well I changed the feet and you were right, my aim definitely feels better now and the problem has almost completely gone. I still had a few issues, but I have a theory that the problem is me with the way I swipe my mouse and going to a lower lift-off distance. I'm thinking with the higher lift-off distance I was still turning because I was lifting off the pad early. I'm going to keep it low though and just adjust to it.

Thanks for all the help.

From my understanding, Meltdown has already been patched out of pretty much all OSs and Spectre is soon to follow (though the patch will supposedly come with a performance hit due to how it will impact speculative compute).

Just ride it out until it's patched. Spectre effects every x86 processor made by AMD and Intel over the past decade so there really isn't a lot you can do to be proactive about it besides taking your device offline until it's safe.

I have to use windows 10. It's a Surface Pro that I use for contract work. Anyway, I've been very happy with the EPIC Chromium browser so far, but it has essentially no supported addons and the https redirect function doesn't seem to work on many pages. For example, https everywhere used to always work on 420chan in Firefox, but SSL doesn't work with EPIC.

Is there any way (or any firewall you know of) that forces Windows 10 to only allow SSL connections for http traffic?

Also, I highly recommend EPIC as far as DNS leaks and free proxies go. Seems to work flawlessly so far with pretty good streaming speeds and no leaks from any flash /HTML5 / java shit.

You can use a firewall to block HTTP and maybe block all unencrypted traffic but it's going to look to your applications like a dead connection. Also, all privacy/security browsers except for TBB are for suckers. I don't know why you would run a proprietary Chromium build made by some Indian company, but I would highly recommend that you stop making recommendations.

Okay so can you tell me what is broken here?

I was playing some games on my desktop, suddenly the monitor goes blank and white. Teamspeak is still working though so i assume it's the monitor.

I restarted and it was still white as soon as i turned on the monitor with no monitor splash screen, I tired multiple cables etc. I also connected a laptop to the monitor and i only got the white screen again.

I grabbed an old TV which has VGA / HDMI input, and tried to connect the pc to that instead however although the TV recognises something is attached there is no display only a black screen. I connected a laptop to this TV via HDMI and then VGA and both displayed perfectly fine.

Have i somehow fried both the monitor and the PC? I mean teamspeak was still working after the screen died but the fact that i cant get any image out of the PC on a separate display is concerning me.

Sorry for the shit thread, i'm just a bit frustrated.

I was going to reseat the graphics card but i figured since the monitor seems fucked anyway that probably wont fix anything.

Monitor just displays white screen when disconnected from everything and won't show up any brightness / contrast options and doesnt come up with "no signal".

Anyway i was thinking power surge myself but surely the PC would have crashed instead of just ruining my card?

Never mind think i've fixed it, it was an old TV and looks like its VGA input is damaged so that's why there was no display with that cable.

I just got a picture up using a different HDMI cable than the one i was using.

So looks like a faulty port and a bad cable was causing my confusion.
I guess the monitor just decided to take a shit and die, only bought it on the 1st so i'll just get it replaced.

Thanks for giving suggestions though man
