I've switched to Windows 10 N. Almost feels like an optimized Windows 2000 - my favorite experience with Windows.

Windows 10 N is for European use. As a US citizen, you may have violated the Patriot Act by using it!

I'm past the age of reason. Which means I can freely choose the social control structures I align myself with. Currently, I have a predisposition to diversity in all forms - beyond rational justification. Despite the bias of locality I feel no nationalistic pride - wherever I am, I endeavor to improve the general situation. This ambiguity has the effect of me being shunned both internally and externally. Yet, I persevere.

What I said was meant to be a joke. The Patriot Act is not even about patriotism -- it is mainly about legalizing the uses of telephone tapping and other forms of surveillance to intercept and obstruct terrorist activities.

BTW, bro, you should seriously consider switching to a career in literary writing.

It's okay YONG, it speaks more about me than any reflection on you. I understand your jovial nature. My verbiage is a result of reading diverse material. I fear my programming has influenced my prose and visa versa. Razz

Google's Android OS is catching Windows in terms of total internet usage across desktop, laptop, tablet and mobile combined.

Are Android devices on the rise, or are people abandoning their desktop OS for a phone OS? Wink

I have switched to Linux running on Chromebook for almost a year. So far, so good. In terms of bang for the buck, the performance is simply unbeatable.

Unfortunately, the thread-starter cannot say no to Windows 10 because most of his/her clients are currently using -- and will keep using -- Windows-based computers. He/She has no choice but to vent his/her anger and frustration here.

That is true. As the latest Chromebooks can natively support Android apps, the low-end (and even mid-range) market will pretty soon be dominated by Chrome OS & Android. Windows 10 is losing ground!

There is no guarantee that Chrome OS or Android (or whatever) will not do the same as W10. Beware what you choose. Be sure that you are okay with whatever the OS will do with your data, your files, your secrets, your keystrokes.

It goes both ways. Beware what GJ 1132b, an uninhabitable exoplanet, would bring to the table -- it might kill you.

Seriously, the Linux distro that I have been using for several months is utterly stable, and most importantly, trouble-free.

How much RAM does it use when the desktop is loaded? Approximately. (that's how I judge how much bloat it has bundled with it)

@revolution: The cool thing with Linux is that it is open-source. No, I don't mean you'll have to compile everything yourself (although you could, like if you use Gentoo). But if it's open-source it typically has many more options for system software/components, or ability to disable whatever.

Most people complain Linux landscape is too "fragmented". That does have its downsides, but that can be a great thing too. If it's fragmented, a piece of software can't be coded as if it depends on an extremely specific configuration of other software. Thus, most things are easily removed or replaced.

So if something bothers you, you can probably remove it. (if you do Google search about it, someone probably has done it already)

In Windows, you're at the mercy of MS or "hacks" discovered by people that could break whenever MS decide to.


Now, unfortunately systemd is a pile of shit because it goes against this and tries to be a monolith Sad (also it has retarded syntax for its commands/services, in my opinion)

3887 - 3499 = 388 MB
3887 - 3517 = 370 MB
3887 - 3494 = 393 MB

Taking average: (388 + 370 + 393) / 3 = 384 MB (approx)

I am aware of the open-source thing, of course. But this is not what I need. I need something that works with our stuff and our customers stuff. Linux doesn't have drivers for a large portion of the stuff so it is a no go before it has even been installed.

Sad but true. That's why I regularly update my Windows laptop and tablet -- I may still need them occasionally.
