There is nothing more pathetic. People that defend this shit are fucking faggots.

If you can afford it, you are literally better off just getting a mac at this point.

The Enterprise LTSB edition doesn't have ads, and you can disable certain dubious features.

Not really, usually only if you do something new.

I've never seen one apart from these shitpost threads. These are most likely forgeries from petty Linux dweebs.

>> No.63121565

Yes, you have an option to turn off "custom ads" It explicitly states that ny turning it off it won't use collected ads to choose more relevant ads, but the total amount will stay the same. Even a brainlet like me had to make the switch to linux

You really are a brainlet if you couldn't find this option.
The option you are talking about controls the ad content in third party applications.

They measure it in powers of 1000 so they can give you less data. It's like how ISPs measure speeds in bits instead of bytes.

I've been disabling Metro UI elements since the release of Windows 8 in 2012.
It takes me less than a minute to configure a fresh installation, so it's a non-issue.
Never paid for it either. Why is /g/ so salty?

In all honesty, DAE think manufacturers have lost their marbles?

Apple is, instead of coming up with novel sexy features (high-res screens, IRIS scanners, flexible phones, working SIRI), constantly getting stale and more confusing (Stange watches, strange beazels, copying windows hardware) while windows is trying to introduce features that dont make sense and scrapping them, like developing windows 10 as a crossplatform OS only to fire the phone division, essentially making the last 5 years of developing obsolete, and instead focusing on hardware that would only benefit a mobile subsciption-based user (sufrace, office 365).

How hard is it to make a functioning UI independent of the OS (like metro), then make a good OS independent of the underlying architecture (x86, ARM, embedded), then writing emulators so one OS can run on any device, then charging once per OS and once per software license?

We could have programmable robots by now if people would stop jerking over whoever has the better-looking icons or maps.

That’s the best way to describe upgrading from windows to Mac. Switching from regular computing to luxury computing.

This is why I'm sticking to a stripped down 8.1 with none of the telemetry adding updates.
I don't care what Microsoft tries to think of to entice me to move to 10 be it DX 12 of supposedly better 3D performance, it's just not worth it.
