I've always used the Killer one, but I only install the driver. I've never had any problem. I use just the driver and it works like any other ethernet adapter. I tried out their software way back when I built it, and saw no reason to ever use anything other than the driver.
To be honest thank god
Killer network drivers are only good at 'killing' games and the networking stack. It's such a terribly written driver I'm shocked anyone was ever tricked into using their shlock. I've had to fix more problems with these drivers than any imaginary benefits their terribly implemented QOS garbage ever did

Without even clicking on the link, I knew it would be about low octane gas. E85 is the absolute worst for this.
Years ago, I saw a video on YouTube—since removed, it seems, though a few like it still remain—of a GTAV player deliberately brutalizing some of the game’s trans sex workers for his own amusement. In the comments, one viewer voiced these chilling words of encouragement: “You’re doing God’s work.”Did the game actually encourage him to target the trans sex workers it, or was this person doing it because they're a piece of shit? Would they be calling for removing black NPCs from the game if a white supremacist played it on YouTube and went around only killing black NPCs for his amusement?

Always ways around all that bullshit, you know...

Lmao, bethlauncher, denuvo and online pvp, seriously?

I'm not denying that Steam could operate on less than 30%, I'm pretty damn sure they can, but I'm not going to pretend to know it absolutely. I bet if Steam could operate on 1% and still make a profit, they would because I doubt anyone one else could compete with that, and then Epic would probably be suing Valve for being anti-competitive.
Can Apple, Google, Microsoft, Steam, etc. operate on less than 30%? I don't know and neither do you, so until I see data proving otherwise, I'm not going to pretend I do know and you shouldn't either.
I think I just showed that they can operate well under 30%, and it is long past time for the government to force competition in these markets.
Also, I misread Hellcinder's post as "why does Apple... deserve 30% or anything for products they don't produce?". I just noticed that of was not an or when reading the replies.

With Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo, they sell the consoles at a loss and make up for that by taking a cut from the games sales. I don't know if that's the same for Apple's phones or not.
I've been hammered quite a bit for this view, but why does Apple (Google, Microsoft, Steam, name your leach here) deserve 30% of anything for products they don't produce?
The infrastructure argument is swiss cheese also, because if you need 30% to keep yourself afloat, you're doing something very wrong.
Rather than make shit up, I actually made some effort to get an estimate of some of Valve's operating costs just now. Valve's Download Status page shows a peak rate of 5.8 Tbps in the past 48 hours. It looks like they average about 4 Tbps. I looked up prices for commercial CDNs and find prices from 4 cents to 80 cents per GB. Going with the lowest rate of 4 cents per GB means Valve would be spending an average of $20 per second to run their data centers.That was from over a year ago. That download status page now shows their 48hr peak at 14Tbps, and averaging closer to 8Tbps.

push it back to what? americans are fucking retarded and don't believe in medicine anymore; we're not getting the vaccine numbers we need to put a nail in it.

I suspected that it didn't actually uninstall, and the directories are hidden and have weird permissions on them that ignore you if you attempt to take ownership and view/delete them. I was able to use Everything, since it runs in administrator mode, and was able to find the directory and see that it didn't get removed when I uninstalled it from the store. Using Everything, I was able to get ownership of the directory and remove it.
All these things and more, are why I never buy anything from the MS Store or use Gamepass...
