Should I update to Windows 10? It's the last month when it's available for free. I've heard a lot of bad stuff about it and I like Windows 7 a lot and got used to it, but then again, in a few years I'll probably have to get it anyway since new games etc. will not be compatible with 7, and then I'll regret not getting it for free when I could. Unless they'll release another one by then...

what does taht mean, subscription based? I've got it, they can't decide to make me pay for something I already have, can they?

Also, how do you know that?

dont update your current system, do a fresh install and update that. way less chances of breaking something.

a week ago i'd say give it a go, but 2 days ago i started having .dll problems, and windows 10 won't fix the corrupted files, so i'll have to get a new os. guess who's going back to windows 7..

Do you game OP? If you do and have decent hardware then you are shooting yourself in the foot by not getting 10.
If your hardware is roughly 5 years older or more then stick with what you've got.

Personal I paid £20 for a key online and used the win10 pro x64 iso from Microsoft.

I did try the win 10 upgrade from windows 7 when it was first offered but I blue screened so reinstalled 7. This time around though I just used the iso to do a fresh install, fuck upgrading every again. I'd only recommend a clean install.

Windows 7 is getting support until 2020 anon, no need to upgrade unless you really like being spied on and having less control over your OS

Dual boot. Either make a seperate partition for Windows 10 or grab a spare, cheap 500gb minimum HDD and copy your Windows 7 to that then upgrade to 10, that's what I did.

That's the question.
Direct X 12 brof
You'll see noticeable frame rate gains just from upgrading to 10.

My computer auto updated while I was asleep because I forgot to cancel it. And I love windows 10. Turn off the Cortina bullshit and it's just like 7....but better.

I agree.

But that doesn't mean we're gonna have much choice in the future.

They're already forcing the upgrade on people who blocked it - my wife included.

"noticible gains"

hahahahahahahahaahaaa

It won't m,ake your shitty hardware any better faggot, and it's well documented that most games run worse on 10, plus it uninstalls some programs when it updates itself, oh and you can't turn that off either.
you literally have to block multiple ports through your router to stop it sending information back to microsoft every day. It is just straight up bad.

If you're the type of person that is OK with malware like practices being performed by your OS then by all means go ahead, but please never breed.

Why the actual fuck would they do that. Dual booting GNU/linux and windows makes sense. But just a win7-8/10 dual boot is retarded. And gay. And probably has a nigger less than a 2nd cousin away in their family tree.
>>
>>692445793
you should install a real operating system for men, GNU/Linux.
windows is for manlets. no point in arguing whether win10 or win7 is better, as they both suck. good luck sending your data to microsoft so they can masturbate.
and comparing GNU/Linux to windows is like comparing lego to lego duplo, so don't even bother.
>>
Win 7 bruh why the ask
>>
>>692449238
yeah or just stay on 7, you're not going to have any security issues unless you're severely retarded with your daily computer use.

You can remove all of the windows 10 upgrade files from 7 easily and make sure it never tries to pull that shit where it downloads and updates things without your permission on you again - something you cannot do with windows 10

No, I recently had a big issue with Windows 10.
Out of the blue it stopped working properly, Start menu, Cortana, basically all Windows' Apps, Sound and WiFi were not working.
Reinstalled without losing files twice and did nothing, ran powershell commands, dos commands and nothing.
Took me 2 days to make partitions to save my files and reinstall completely Windows.
I regret upgrading.

8.1 and 10 have improved memory handling and are therefore more stable. SSD-based systems received some love in 8, so everything runs snappier.

How about more like $20 monthly to use office after an initial free trial period. Or $5 monthly to get back your screen real estate from ads when you try to play games. And none of this is addressing the real issue here. The fact that the nsa has a direct line to all of your information. The fact that Microsoft will scan your system for anything it deems illegal (movies, games, software, pictures) and reports to big brother. Without any kind of warrant. Know why they don't get a warrant? They don't need one. It's in the eula that you're giving them your permission to do so.

Win10 is a decent OS if you don't mind Microsoft knowing literally everything about you and showing ads.
But then, you don't care that Google already does both, so maybe this will be fine too.
Other than that it's just another Windows.
Win10 starts up really fast, if that's a selling point for you. Takes literally 10 seconds to start a computer. It's fantastic.
The downside of the OS is that not everything is compatible with Win10. Not yet anyway.
The choice to upgrade is yours, but these are the pros and cons.

interface is the only noticeable difference.
but even then its not even a big deal. when 8.1 got rid of the start button i just downloaded a third party start button and everything was back to normal. people who complain are idiots. 10.1 kinda brought the start button back though. i dont use that weird screen that looks like a tablet interface. i think thats pretty dumb. and its not like were forced to use it or anything. again, people who complain are dumb.

Not OP, but I have the exact same question.

For some reason nothing works on 64-bit after getting a new primary HDD. I probably fucked something up and now I'm at the point of getting a fresh new install. I have a brand new game-PC, do I install Win 7 again or "upgrade" to Win 10, because DirectX12?

>>692452992
Dude there is next to nothing that requires dx12. Stick with 7. I didn't realize potatoes could use computers. Good for you potato. Good for you.
>>
>>692445793
Use Windows backup (built into 7) to create a backup image to an external HDD. Upgrade to Windows 10. After confirming activation, restore your backup image. There, now whenever you really do want to upgrade, your hardware has been fingerprinted and Windows 10 will activate whenever you install it later (unless you replace motherboard or something). That's how the upgrade activations work. "Digital entitlement" they call it.

Not true. My opinion is that 7 is more convenient and if you're running decent hardware the speed difference is negligible. What's not up for debate though is that you are paid by Microsoft to advertise their products on forums and message boards and that you get a but of change each time you mention win10 and it's 'merits'. Oh and you worship beef for some fucking reason. And shit in the streets.

Windows 10 is basically a functional windows 8/8.1 that reverts back to the usual windows layout.

You can restore your OS back within 31 days of installing Windows 10. I went from win7 to win10. Haven't regretted it, haven't gone back. The whole "tracking your info" stuff is.... bullshit? I mean... it's true. But not for why they make it seem. It's basically the same permissions your smartphone has... they want their little digital assistant to "learn" about you to better help you. You can turn that shit off. They're not like big brothering your ass. I had a little fun with Cortana, made the bitch sing for me and shit.... but it got old after like 3 minutes.

Listen. Nerds argue and debate all the god damn time. They can talk you into intel or AMD depending on who you're listening too. Just try it yourself and if you dont like it just go back.

Also Microsoft is considering making it free to upgrade too for literally everybody at some point, for free. They're trying to tout it as their latest, greatest, universal OS.

I know what it's like to be used to an OS. I took forever to move from XP. Shit just worked. But eventually that shits going to stop working and become dated and stop being supported. It's time to move on. It's time to not get left behind.

I have Windows 10 and haven't had any of the technical problems that people have complained about, and if you've used Facebook or Google in the past 10 years, people have been "spying" (read: collecting data for adware) on you since then anyway. I would stick with 7 anyway, though, because it isn't much better to be honest. Thinking that they're selling your shit to lizard people or the CIA is just a reddit meme. No one cares what your porn preferences are.

Thank you for the feedback. Nice to get a decent answer for once from someone on here. The only real reason I haven't upgraded to 10 was because of all the horror stories i've heard. Mostly MS spying on you, collecting information, seeing everything you do, etc. The WORST I do is download loli shit (its not real) but it's sketchy at best. Don't feel like the FBI showing up at my door for cartoon porn, ya know? That's really all that's holding me back, that and like I said, i've heard people say 10 sucks.

Well I have used 10 Pro for a while and it's really really bad and unstable piece of shit if you do anything else with your computer than play games. For gaming it's ok but not good.

Win 8.1 is shit but more stable than 10 but would not want to use it for anything work related. For gaming it's actually best option until 10 becones more stable.

Win 8 is retarded and nobody should use that shit.

Win 7 Pro is the best option still because it's all rounder and you can do anything with it and it's the most stable and secure windows at the moment.

Win XP... well only if you do not use the computer online and / or play retro games.

Having said that all, I use Windows 7 for most of the stuff Windows related and anything else that does not require windows I use Manjaro or some other Linux distribution. Just think what you want and need and make your pick.

Actually no. The weird part about me downloading Loli is that I like it, but the real thing makes me sick. I genuinely get sick at the thought of it. So no, I really won't move to more sketchy shit. I fully admit that I like the cartoon loli stuff though. But still, I don't really know all the laws about it. So as I said, it's sketchy at best.

You do have a point, no windows offer privacy. So if it was an issue, i'd already be fucked. I very well may just go for 10 and try it out. I keep hearing about people saying it crashes and people having DLL problems. That shit freaks me out too.. so... I dunno.

Listen you're just going to get this "pajeet" meme on 4chan.

The basis for the "spying" rumor comes from two things that people took too far.

>Windows 10 cloud

Basically with win10 you have the option of participating in this cloud software shit where they'll gather non personal information from your computer to see what features you're using, how you're using them, etc... They spend a lot of time and money developing these things and they like to know which ones were worth their effort basically. Regardless, most people turn this feature off.

>Cortana

Cortana can learn your location and where you work to check for traffic, the weather, etc.... This information is stored in Cortana's memory (same with siri etc...) so their product can seem more useful to you the more you use it.

Cortana can also be turned off.

Aside from these two features, which are optional, it's basically a cross between the good parts of win7 and win8.1 (what little their was).

But yeah as I said it's optional. Give it a shot, see how it works, and switch back if it's not for you. Nothing but loonies on 4chan. I mean are you really going to trust the opinion of people on a website where you can see gore, child porn, trump, and ylyl threads full of banana pictures? This website is a joke that occasionally spouts useful info.

As for the loli thing..... pic related. We're more alike than you originally thought, and yet so very different. (been using win10 for a year, if they mind my shota and torrenting they havent said a god damn thing about it)

Ok so what you likely saw was a screen cap when they advertised the free upgrade if you upgrade in the first year of it's life span.

"Windows 10, free upgrade for the first year". Basically it means...

>If you download it within the first year it's free forever.

Some people thought it meant

>If you download it within the first year it's free until the monthly subscriptions kick in!

It's a misunderstanding that turned into a rumor that is currently being used as troll fodder.

Here is Microsofts response to the initial confusion.
There's been a lot of talk about Windows 10 being a free upgrade. For many customers, that will be true for the first year. So let's confirm the details:

Microsoft will offer a free upgrade to Windows 10 for qualified Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8.1 devices in the first year. After the first year, upgrades will be paid via boxed product and VL Upgrades.
Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 7 Home Basic and Home Premium devices upgrade to Windows 10 Home
Windows 8/8.1 Pro and Windows 7 Professional and Ultimate devices upgrade to Windows 10 Pro
If upgraded within the first 12 months following launch, the device will receive ongoing Windows 10 updates for free for the life of that device
Excludes Windows Enterprise and RT devices
The free Windows 10 upgrade is delivered through Windows Update; domain-joined machines can manually get the update via Windows Update. The upgrade cannot be deployed through WSUS.

Actually, one woman sued MS recently, and won $10k, because they did just that. She got an unwanted Win-10 upgrade.

I suspect as Win-7 reaches EoL MS will become more aggressive in pushing Win-10.

However - Win-10, or some newer version, will come whether you want it or not simply because MS will kill Win-7 and provide no more updates. Just like good old XP

9 was skipped for poor version checking regarding 95/98 vs others, basically "does the Windows version start with a 9? Do this" would trigger if it was just a 9, and could cause alot of issues with legacy software. That's my understanding at least.

I'm on a phone.

Nah dude not too inconvenient at all. Removable storage makes it pretty simple. Plus I don't download new games that often so don't have to worry about it that often. And I find that of the 100s of games I have I usually come back to the same 4 or 5

Eventually all new games will require Win-10 or above. How many of the really good games today run on Win-98 or Win-XP?

Yes, you can stubbornly stay on a non-networked blind, crippled and retarded Win-7 PC until your hardware melts down. And there's nothing wrong with that. I pull up my VM of Win-98 and run some old games for shits and giggles now and again myself, but I don't live in Win-98 out of blind stubbornness in the belief if I bury my head (PC) in the sand it will stop progress.

However *EVENTUALLY* most new software will bypass your dinosaur PC and refuse to run on it.

I game plenty. I deal with Aspbergers which makes it more comfortable to me to only have to deal with npc's anyways.

Who cares, you can just watch let's plays

When that day comes I'll accept that to play AAA titles it might have to be through a console and my computers will be for work and older games only, which I'm actually pretty ok with

They've found files hidden in the core win10 system that are there for the sole purpose of handling subscription based upgrades. Want that new security patch so your machine doesn't become a Russian bitcoin miner? Gotta pay up. It's basically like a small business owner paying off the local gang for 'protection'

Explains a lot. I actually have friends online to game with, so your system wouldn't work for me. But I get it.

If you want windows 10 just torrent it like everyone else and use Rufus to make a usb drive the windows installer. I do this every time I fuck it up or etc. Also I use Win7 Ultimate and after 3 months of w10 I'm sticking with 7 thank you. 8.1 is actually better...
>>
>>692459549
it's not hidden,
you don't know it's for the sole purpose of upgrading subscriptions. It might order pizza as well.
You don't know what the subscriptions are about at all.
Might be for integrating office/onedrive/skype/MSDN or whatnot subscriptions into windows somehow.

>>692458982
fair enough.

these threads are always an uphill battle until all the knee-jerk MS-hate hiveminds and shitposters run out of steam.

then there's a glimpse of reason and the realisation that windows is quite alright for its purpose, whichever iteration.

>If upgraded within the first 12 months following launch, the device will receive ongoing Windows 10 updates for free for the life of that device

So, the Win10 updates won't be free for late upgraders
>>
I have win 10 since march and everything worked until now so i would suggest it since it is a lot faster than win 7
>>
>>692460900
i wonder if w10 will allow full system upgrades like they used to with other versions. don't want to find myself having to pay for it after building a new pc later this year.

you used to be able to get a new build activated by calling MS, no problem.
