Sure, not the OEM crap. Difficult put possible Cool, depends on the software. It's unbelievable what some people abandon/throw away.

And many EULA clauses can legally be ignored here in the EU, regarding transference of software property. Not that I really care that much.

Enforcement of anti-piracy laws in my country is not strong, though there are some prison sentences from time to time. The sentence is usually a few months.

According to this link http://globalstudy.bsa.org/2016/downloads/studies/BSA_GSS_US.pdf we have 39% pirate software around here, same as global average. We are pretty average, I guess Smile

And nice abandonware link, thanks. Some stuff there is quite valuable, like Borland Delphi 4.0 which includes the Borland win32 help files, they are not obsolete yet and contain an excellent explanation of the win32 API, as it was in 1998 (well, the core functions are the same). Very useful for beginners.

Windows 10 is f@^#ing awesome Revo!

It's the next evilutionary step in the Windows mash up cycle; Windows 8 (possibly 8.1 now after the anniversary update) makes babies with Windows XP (maybe sp1). It will be progressively developed though, so I look forward to forward thinking and the potential for catastrophic inoperability in the future. It does exist to make me look like an asshole --like I need help with that, my own mother hates me. LMAO.

Love ya Revo --nice ARMs; get it? Cause of the Arm development stuff, please don't hit me. Wink

Okay, awesome at what? I find it a small amount prettier than older versions, but I wouldn't call that awesome. It sure is awesome at being annoying though with all those animations everywhere. Another thing I suspect it is awesome at is spying. With MS having root access the awesomeness of personal data collection is a thing to be awed by. Wink Hehe, sorry, perhaps that is not what you were meaning by awesome?

http://windowsreport.com/partition-disappears-windows-10-anniversary-update/
Lucky for me, I planned to do the update this weekend. Now, I guess I would have to wait and see!
I did the update yesterday. The partition issue persists. One of the hidden partitions (for recovery purposes) on my HDD becomes mounted, i.e., it gets assigned a drive letter. Yet, the drive letter of the mounted partition is not shown in Disk Management. M$ is actually doing a great job! Sigh! Mad

Wink
Having been offline for over two months, my Windows 10 laptop got updated a couple of days ago. The partition issue has been fixed. And the Windows Hello feature has been reinstated, which allows other sign in options such as PIN and fingerprint. Unfortunately, the feature seems to work only when the computer is online. So, at the end of the day, I need to sign in with my password even though my laptop has a fingerprint sensor. Sigh! Mad

Although this is not actually a Windows 10 issue, the fingerprint thing is really dumb IMO. With a password the user has the option to share it (if needed for some reason), and the option to not share it according to their own choice. But with fingerprints this choice is no longer available. Fingerprints are not secret. You leave them everywhere. Fingerprints can be duplicated without your knowledge. You can also be forced to use them to unlock whatever they protect by courts or thugs. You also cannot change your fingerprints; if they ever become compromised there is no way to rescind them.

You are probably right on this.

But my point is that such a feature should be available offline. In fact, it did when I first upgraded the OS of my laptop from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. Later updates, however, withheld the feature. Now, the feature is available again but does not work when the computer is offline. That drives me crazy! Mad

If Win10 did everything offline then how would MS monitor you?

Maybe I should be. Somehow I think they wouldn't be very happy with me.

But nevermind, once you have been successfully been assimilated into the hive mind of MS control you'll feel much happier about them making sure everything you do is recorded online and analysed for opportunities to exploit you. Hehe

Native English speakers would say:

"I don't think they would be very happy with me."

It seems that English is actually your second language.

No, I did not. How could someone with a memory similar to that of an elephant forget that thread?

For your information, I did not take part in that thread.

Prettier??? I find it completely horrendous IMO, especially the top of the window area (the titlebar I think it is called). Chrome is the same way (regardless of window manager even on Linux), this mobile design is an eyesore and kills fast functionality, it feels as if all windows are "inactive" because of that whiteness. Don't forget some of the checkboxes in Win10 are replaced with that mobile bullshit "slider" which is only on or off, taking up more space for zero reason (because a checkbox is so hard to read or tap, right?).

Personally I have a special bond with the classic windows theme. Which is why I never used any Windows above 8, but especially 10, in terms of design only (ignoring all the other issues). Only Win10 I will ever use is in a temporary VM if any apps will require it (but only if it's a temporary thing), because I despise it.

I use the classic Win NT/2000 theme on Linux too, as close as possible to the original. I find it very functional and pleasing to the eye if the background is made somewhat greyish instead of the normal white. Plus I grew up with it so we have a bond I suppose. Razz

So one of the reasons I switched to Linux awhile ago was because of design indeed. I mean I had to customize Linux to look like the classic windows theme, too, but at least it gave me that opportunity. I couldn't find that with Windows 10 and I can't really be bothered to look for it, considering how many issues it has.

One thing is for sure, I'm at war with the retarded mobile "design" Mad

Can win10 read toe print? I am curious. If it can then there is an added security feature for you. I mean, who would have thought that? Your horribly smelly feet can open a window? That's BIOSECURITY my friends! Very Happy

Actually I also use the Win2k classic theme because I find it less space wasting and more functional at a glance. But it is not a "pretty" theme. It is a plain theme, which is all I need.
