Microshit in their usually fucked up way always change things around and making the new OS more difficulty to use all the time, now they want you to use the search function instead of using the UI like it was designed for.


As for what people are doing there are over 200 million Windows 10 installations so far and Windows 7 market share is shrinking. So I don't think many people are downgrading, sorry.

You can try and spin that all you want, but the fact is Win 10 is a POS OS. All the Bullshit laden crap in it, the lack of features and functionality and the lame assed touch screen bullshit screens that are oversized and poorly implemented. A color scheme that looks like something ripped right out of Windows 3.1 No, sorry but win 10 is a shell of what Win 7 is that went in the opposite direction of usefulness compared to Win 7.

Spin what, your own words? Haha. Don't put it on me, I didn't come to your place and hammer that out on the keyboard, you made the claim. If there is nothing good about Windows 10 then there is nothing good about Windows 7 or Windows 8. That's because the majority of the features are exactly the same or improved. If anything Windows 10 improves on features that suffered in Windows 8. The few areas it differs in are extremely technical or new additions, most of which are optional. Performance wise its largely above either of them and peripheral support is even better.

The major problems with Windows 10 are not really related to performance or usability, they are related to privacy and I even complained about it in this thread. Some of you need to learn how opinions can be nuanced and not just OMG AMAZING or IT SUX. You can like them something while still finding fault with it and you can dislike software or a product while still admiring something it does well. I don't think Windows is perfect but it does a lot of things very well. Just like I don't think Linux is perfect but there many things I enjoy about it. The fanboy shit is really silly and immature.

You can get off the high horse right now Verno, this isn't about being a fanboy. I'm a Network Admin, and I see the OS for what it is. Users completely hate the OS. Microshit in their usually fucked up way always change things around and making the new OS more difficult to use all the time, now they want you to use the search function instead of using the UI like it was designed for.

They hide shit that was in clear sight before and make you jump through three more steps just to find it. If its such a great OS when why is it that there are so many third party pass to change the look and functionality of the OS, explain that one!

That is what drives people bat shit crazy about Mircoishit and how they do busijness. And don't get all caught up in them giving this away free and thinking this is something great this is just M$ being paranoid and so afraid of the their new OS failing that
They are giving it away free trying to lure people into using it.

If you want people to use something you don't try force feeding it down their throats. You let them discover it on their own and give it time. unlike what M$ has been doing.

Many who have used it reverted back to Win 7 because they can't stand all the Bullshit with that OS.

Then there was nothing good about Windows 7 or Windows 8 considering the huge amount of legacy code and features Windows 10 is built on.

Okay be honest, raise hands... who's still playing DarkSpore here? I almost could do the same for "who here even played it?", but I won't.

I have, we play it as the lan sessions we have at times. but yea, I have not played in ain a few months. but still that doesn't mean we would not have gone back to it. EA should be patching this game with a LAN capable patch. at least allow local lan play.

New Map? Looks like an expanded Hoth map. How is this even new? Here's a hint EA, people actually want new maps that they have not played on or look remotely similar to the ones in the game already your morons!

Game = almost dead

A developer actually told me once that getting hollywood stars to do your voicework doesn't cost as much as you'd think. Seems like a fair number of them do it for their own amusement and relatively small pay.

If I recall correctly, a few years back they re-negotiated the contracts for actors doing voice over work. I believe it was somewhere around $5000 an hour.

And those are some really well done voiced characters. Can't wait to check this out.

GTA V? You have to crouch behind objects and don't stick to walls.

There's nothing wrong with cover shooters, I happen to like them and they are a part of how the world really works. But hey, you don't have to use the cover system. But good luck trying to stay alive.

And that goes in real life too. If you are in a shoot out with someone and yes the military too while in combat. do you really think the Marines and Army just stand there shooting without using cover and concealment? If you do then your delusional.

Seems reasonable enough.

@Darks. How do you think they (or any site for that matter) should make money? Don't you think they know they've got a highly technical readership and cultivate their ads to avoid malware, like the way Blue does?

All that being said, I basically stopped reading Wired last year because the content just wasn't interesting any longer. A few times a year they do put out an excellent long form article though.

First off, by being legitimate with their ads and not plastering your screen with bullshit ads that lead to malware and spam. That would be a very good start. This is why people use ad blockers. We all got tired off of the bullshit spam.

Many of these sites have no one to blame but themselves they lost the public trust.

Here's a clue for you Wired and all the other sites who think they can't just plaster your screen with all kinds of popups that are fake and misleading bullshit riddled with spam, malware and viruses. Start putting relevant advertisements on your site that don't lead to spam and virus infected shit and then maybe we will stop using ad blocking software.

The truth is, browsing websites unprotected is like going to a whore house without a condom. Good luck with that!!

Kind of on the fence with this game, it looks really cool in that video and is something that's defiantly new from everything that's been out in recent years. I'm just not really the jungle warrior type running around with a bow and knife to kill things.

Have to see some reviews on this game before I jump in all the way.

Probably because it was all negative.

Granted, that is like 3+ years away.
