    No, I had no issues with switching to Windows Vista and to Windows 8.1. I would update if it wasn't literally for the risk of me losing my files. They are getting too careless and I don't see the point in risking right now, but no previous version of Windows deleted my files, and I'm one of those few people who hated Windows XP and actually liked Windows Vista.

    I don't feel like they made any real changes to warrant switching yet, and reinstalling Windows would waste too much time for me, as I have everything setup in a specific way, and I'm still paranoid about Windows randomly deleting my data. I would rather stick to this version, until I know for sure that the new release is okay. It can't really hurt to wait, I'm already on Windows 10, so I'm not missing out on much. I feel like I'm more productive by not switching every month to a whole new version of Windows, I really wish Microsoft could do yearly updates instead, maybe even every two years. I don't care how long it takes them to be honest, but so far the latest updates have been pretty dissapointing for me, and it just caused some unecessary stress if anything.

    I'm too scared to switch, so I'll probably be sticking with 1709 for as long as I can.
  4. I mean the Source Engine was still as painful to use just as I remember it.

    I don't think it's about greed. To me it feels like there's no real focus at the moment, people are just sorta getting bored of doing any serious work, so they just start slapping on some new features to keep things more exciting. Biggest downside is, that the user is the one who suffers the most from all the "excitement". I just think Windows is trying too hard to be cool, it needs to focus more on being boring, and usable, and to not fucking delete my data when I update the system. I mean, you know they reached a new low, when that's the main feature I want them to work on.
  9. That doesn't seem very efficient, MR. EFFICIENT.

    New Windows 10 updates are no longer tested in house. The entire QA department is pretty much gone. I'm lying actually, but it doesn't feel too far off from the truth. I can't come up with a reason as to why they would do these updates so hastily. I like to immagine that it's just management being a pain in the ass. Nobody is that incompetent, god I hope so. People do have a natural tedency to try their best, and to at least try to do well, when working on something as complicated as a whole operating system. You'd think these people would have higher quality standards by default either way. If the Linux kernel released updates like these, they would become the laughing stock of all open source communities. Earlier versions of Windows 10 might ironically be more stable than newer releases. Even the LTSB release might be better in some cases. Anything closer to the Windows 7 / Windows 8 / Windows 8.1 versions should be stable enough. New Windows 10 releases are downright scary to update to. Yeah, that's where it got to. Windows 10 is SCARY. I should be scared of Linux, not of Windows. High School should be scary, not Windows. What are you doing Microsoft? It almost feels like you want to fail. Doesn't even feel like anybody is even trying anymore. Is Windows that much of a tangled mess by now? What the hell is going on. I would expect better from a trillion dollar company. Sorry guys, Microsoft is a struggling indie start up, they still didn't figure it out. THEY NEED MORE TIME GUYS, THEY ARE STILL FIGURING IT OUT Also RIP BeechCraft118's data. I'm not an expert, but what the fuck are they doing? This is downright appalling. I don't know, maybe I'm stupid, maybe I'm just crazy. It's not that I don't want to switch, but I'd have to give up a ton of good stuff, which only literally exists on Windows. I would glady jump ship if someone made a Windows 10 clone. I mean I actually like Windows, I want Windows to do well, so their behaviour makes this whole thing even worse to me at least. This is just beyond me either way, this is such a clusterfuck of stupid. I don't know, I just don't get it. I'm not even angry or anything, just... mildly annoyed. But man it really feels like they don't want to do anything well at all. Man I would give everything, if they could just, stop making updates for even ten years. Just remake the whole operating system, if things are THAT BAD, I don't care. JUST STOP UPDATING WINDOWS, WE HAVE A REASONABLE AMOUNT OF UPDATES, I'M STUFFEd, I DON'T NEED MORE, I DON'T WANT MORE, FOR THE LOVE OF GO- aaAAAAAAAAA (don't worry, it's just a joke, my pc didn't update, THANK GOD - but still, my stress level would explode if I ever saw that ever again)

    That's easy, just lobotomize the writing permissions to the updates folder. Updates be gone forever. C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution I wish I could be joking. I even checked the Windows update logs. It keeps trying to update, but it can't save the update data, so the update fails forever, and forever. Here's proof that I'm NOT supposed to be on this version, yet here I am. I've never seen anyone posting this solution, I feel like I'm the only one who truly figured out how to actually turn off updates, anything else is hogwash and does nothing at all, Windows can just override it. Oh I'm sorry, I took away your system write permissions? (works as a bonus joke for Linux users I guess) Fuck you Microsoft. YOU CAN'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO. "You could just use linux, durr." I ALREADY AM SHUT UP, but I need Windows... for things. You know those parasites, who have a "live with me or die alone" thing to everything? That's what using Windows feels like. If you are wondering, "Why would you ever disable Windows updates, THEY ARE PERFECTLY WELL MADE UPDATES, THEY CLEARLY ALWAYS TEST THEM, SO STOP BEING A NON CONFORMIST AND GET IN LINE" Yep. I'm sure that won't happen ever again.

    Maybe if we are lucky someone worked on a revival already. Without all that Pay to Win crap in it. I never liked the "wall hack" mechanic either.

    Oops, sorry for ruining the match. I wasn't really sure how to do against all the dragons though. If we do this again, we need proper voice chat though, as it's too difficult to coordinate with the stream, it was very quiet. TOO MANY DRAGONS I did a couple of suicide attacks with Ross, but we weren't ready for those. RIP ORCS. I would be up for StarCraft 2 next, it's Free to Play (100%). Anyway GG all. Might be a bit too hardcore though, but I'd be up for it as an experiment.

    Freeman got buff from all that running and jumping he did in Black Mesa.
  15. I think it's the end of an era though.
