    That's what happens when most code monkeys know and only work with C#/.NET and a bit beyond that, but are not even close to being professional at C/C++ and Assembly. Those are from completely different worlds. A lot will easily go wrong.
    Please be kind to the chimpanzees employed by Microsoft. They are trying to make the best of their limited cranial capacity.

    Not true. Forum post made by any volunteer moderator IS NOT official MS statement. And "semi-official" post written by Paul Sey was fraudulently injected into all related threads much later, anybody can see the difference between these two snapshots:

    Windows 10 suddenly deactivated - Microsoft Community
    Windows 10 suddenly deactivated - Microsoft Community

    So please don't write untrue sentences.

    Hi folks

    How is it I'm still running CENTOS 7 - with almost zero updates and an older kernel (rel 3) for almost 3 years with zero update problems -- whereas after every Windows update (and these things come out frequently) I worry if not only if the system will function OK but also what parameters have been changed so I can't guarantee that the next re-boot will work the same as the previous one.

    Please Ms forget all the Candy crush soda type apps on the menu -- provide professional users with what in Linux is now given as LTS (Long Term Support). Insider sign ups in Windows can go for leading edge stuff but there are a load of "Boring old people like me" out there who want to use Windows in a professional environment without all the clutter and have it basically functional all the time -- I think Windows 7 gave people a lot of that stability without too much bloat and accepting the fact that Windows users are a much more diverse set of users etc.

    Windows does have other issues than Linux given its user base but what's wrong in providing for a professional user base who above else need a stable predictable system -- users who want leading edge etc should be able to opt say for a re-vamped Home edition (instead of Home being a sort of "Baby Windows" edition) with the appropriate risks of stuff breaking more frequently.

    Cheers

    Exactly. Too much, too fast without enough QA.

    In my view, most of the distros are bloated and run slower, than Windows 10 on the same hardware. But at least, updates very seldom break the system, certainly, not to the level Windows 10 does on the regular basis.


    The performance of the distro depends on a number of variably, but I am not the only one who believes that Linux is getting bloated and slower:

    It's a long and funny video, but a pretty good summary for the current state of Linux...

    You need to try out Clean Linux by Intel. It's very fast. Ubuntu is ridiculously slow.

    Not my experience at all, in fact I have win 10 install (OS only, all application in second drive) circa 27 Gb, ubuntu circa 8 Gb (not so bloated after all I think), application starts much faster than in windows 10, compression decompression also, and i'm talking Ubuntu (the universally defined bloated and slow, not that I have to agree or disagree on this, I don't care).
    With linux you have an ecosystem at your fingertips, not even vaguely remotely comparable to windows 10.

    Lunduke show is a show and not something i would found my evaluation on, it may be fun to watch nothing more.

    It's strange that you find linux slow, maybe it's something I do not use and did not noticed (?)

    I've has a look at Clear Linux, slicendice, as I'm considering changing a lower end APU laptop to Linux from WinX. Thanks for then heads up as never heard of it before.

    Wonder if it will run on an AMD CPU system as it's just an OS?

    Hi, never tried "Clear", is it usable as workstation, I mean with desktop manager and application ?

    It was all downhill since WfWG 3.11
    Attachment 211762
    I do remember how exciting it was to get upgraded computers from 386 to 486! And installing WFW 3.11 from something like 6 floppies onto an 80 GB IDE hard drive.... ahhh those were the days! Dot Matrix printers running on parallel LPT ports.... RAM was measured in MB, not GB..... and processors in mhz, not ghz.

    Actually, I remember upgrading my TRS-80 from 4 KB of ram to 16 KB and level II BASIC! But I couldn't afford the expansion interface and 5.25" floppy nor any of the fancy high speed tape drives.
