    Windows 11: What the hell is Microsoft thinking? (RANT)

    I am predicting this now: Windows 11 will be the worst Microsoft OS since Vista and 8, and it's all because of 11's stupid requirements. Really Microsoft what the hell are you thinking, cutting off all processors made before 2017 all based on stupid requirements no one asked for. TPM is a joke...

    Windows 10, Version 1903, 19H1, May 2019 Update SuperThread

    The biggest lie ever told laduies and gentilemen! I have had nothing but pain and agony trying to install windows 10 1903. It is frankly a garbage update from a garbage company. I run a tight ship so no this is no user error issue as I keep my system up to date. My issues i am placing full...

    The user friendly Linux list 2019

    Eh there is such thing as too vanilla though, I actually like some chocolate in the mix :D And sometimes i prefer the more chocolate approach. Like what Ubuntu has done to gnome shell, turned it from a crappy iphone interface and made it into a semi less crappy iphone interface.

    The user friendly Linux list 2019

    KDE neon is nice and I have played around with it. My only issue is that its very bare bones even compared to kubuntu and kubuntu is already vanilla. I mean yeah its KDE's own distro and yes its meant to be vanilla but i actually like a mix of apps.

    Vivaldi: the new kid on the block

    In recent years it seems like nearly every browser under the sun has become a clone of google chrome in some form or fashion. From Opera,to Maxthon, to Edge to even Firefox looking more like chrome then it does its own browser. Its attack of the chrome clones and its gotten very stale and...

    Windows 7 ANTI VIRUS

    Antivirus clients do come in handy, but really the best antivirus client is the person behind the computer. Never download things you dont know about, do your homework and research on what software to install, and beware of emails with odd attachments even from someone you know. Avoid strange...

    Upgraded to win 10 july no 1511 yet

    I personally just had a nightmare experience with this update, for me the only way to get it to work was a fresh install. I even tried the media creation tool, my system was a wreck.

    I want to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 (Not Clean install)

    It should upgrade rather than fresh install, however do be cautious and back everything up. Failures do happen so backing up all your data (the OS included!) is a recommended step.
