171 days until Windows 7 goes End of Life

Isaac Hughes

171 days until Windows 7 goes End of Life. What the fuck do we do? Ignore the need for security updates and bloat up some anti-virus? Go for linux and lose half your applications and get drivers a million years late? Change to fucking MacOs?

You will never convince me to use Windows 10 bloatshit even with all the cancer turned off because there are a million and one ways Microshit aims to turn it back on. Are there enthusiasts who will maintain updates for it after the fact? What are the majority of companies avoiding Windows 10 going to do?

Video Games
Wow what a faggot

I know, but they are used for maintaining social contacts and relationships, and are generally too niche to be supported by emulation.

Some obscure applications that I could probably find a replacement for if I looked hard enough, the main complaint is hardware drivers coming late and restricting upgrade capability.

If I switched I would be running a VM or passthrough to do various things but I want something better because troubleshooting drivers and emulations is basically the same shit work as de-cancering Windows 10 every quarterly update.

Except it's not even closely as bad as you paint it to be. Just accept that things are going to change and you're gonna have to make minor sacrifices. You'll soon get used to it, and after that you'll have an OS that'll basically never go away and is better than Windows in so many respects.

Option 1. Marathon upgrade from 7 > 8 > 8.1 to retain your settings.

Option 2. Fresh install of 8.1.

Why do people pretend like Win8 doesn't exist? And that stupid start screen can easily be disabled to bring your right to the desktop on boot. Windows 8.1 will keep you up-to-date on security until the end of 2023. Hopefully by then, Microsoft backtracks on the Windows as a Service model and de-fucks Win10.

The actual problem is the drop of software support that will occur like it happened with XP in 2014. Again 7 isn't in the same situation as XP was. It's still used by at least 30-40% of Windows users and it isn't as dated as XP was.

10 wouldn't be so bad if you could disable the bloat and botnet stuff at least. I also hate how unnecessary 'complicated' the UI looks like 10 has a settings menu and a control panel at the same time.

8.1 with some Classic Shell or Open-Shell is basically like 7 but with some improvements.

The only problem with 8.1 is the lack of driver support sometimes I believe. AMD doesn't deliver any drivers for their GPUs anymore but some people claim the 7 ones work just fine as well but then again people had some issues with that as well I heard.

End of Life? What brand of crack are you smoking? I guarantee you that no one at Microsoft ever officially used that phrase.

On Jan 14, 2020, Microsoft is ending official support for Windows 7. Windows 7 will continue to work.

I am a Windows Sysadmin. Official support for Server 2003R2 ended on July 14, 2015. However, I, and my employer, still had 2003R2 servers running until some time in 2017.

You have two options:
Ignore everything and keep using win7. Pros: nothing changes
Cons: no more security updates against various exploits. Most programs will lose support over time. All new programs will not be compatible after the End of Life.
Install any non-meme Linux
Pros: the sooner you do it the faster you'll learn how to feel comfortable and do the things you did before.
Cons: Things are different -> you need to re-learn almost everything, which will take your time.

don't worry about shit because even if you time traveled a decade or two forward with your machine, it would still work, your machine isn't reliant on the current year, you just might not be able to play the newest AAA titles because they're win10 exclusive
in other words the only support you need to worry about is third party from new hardware and new software (and new games)

Office 2003
Arguably the last good offce, since 2007 introduced the ribbon. I was using 2003 until I saw a thread about some user using office 95, so I got curious:
The oldest 32bit (so it will run on modern machnes without DOSbox) office is Office for NT 4.2. It has 32 bit versions of Word 6 and Excel 5. (The included PowerPoint 4 is sadly only 16bit). To my surprise, they work perfectly fine on Windows 7, and can open ddocuments made in office 2003 without a problem. There are something missing, like WordArt in Word, but most things are pretty much the same.
The only thing I missed was using the mouse wheel for scrolling. I guess mouse wheels just weren't a thing back in the day.

I've been using W7 since it became a thing, and the last time I let a system update happen was SP1 - the whole stealth downloading W10 thing really put me off the system altogether. Not a lot of fun needing to run third-party software to make the official OS services a little less malicious.
I use W10 LTSC on my laptop due to hardware compatibility and decrappifying it was an uphill struggle I'm nowhere near ready to repeat if I ever need to upgrade or replace my desktop hardware. Honestly not too sure what I'll do if something happens and I'm forced to change. Find what'll eventually be legacy hardware to keep reinstalling W7? Maybe.

Windows 10 is an upgrade in almost every direction, the only issue is that it is Windows, and Windows spies on you and yes this is more pronounced in later versions.

But the only reason to run Windows is games and some exclusive software, which all run better on Windows 10. Why aren't you running the best version of Windows yet? If you're going to embrace the botnet do it entirely, none of this half-assed shit I see from Win7 users.

I remember using windows 7 for what felt like a million years. When it reality it was only early 2010 to mid 2012 (when I bought my samsung 830 and at the same time got windows 8) I just realized that yesterday and actually scratched my head. Didn't even realize I've used windows 10 longer than I did 7 at this point, or even 8/8.1

Why the heck does time go by so fast? It didn't when I was 19.

Windows 7 would have easily lasted mainstream wise until at least by 2026, had Microsoft not basically force everyone's hand (including OEM) with the windows 10 adoption. They didn't do this with 8, which is why 8 is a footnote now.

I didn't realize how bad the consumer version of 10 was until I upgraded someones computer. Do yourself a favor and pirate Windows 10 Enterprise and install start is back. You get control of updates and at least a sense of privacy on it.

security updates on 7/8(.1) include telemetry and spying features you retard. Just turn off windows update and use a live disk for banking

Ever since ~Millenium Edition. It's unquestionable. Remember also the Lotus 1-2-3 case, etc.
Windows has always had spyware and tremendous holes in it, dating back to Windows 1.0 and even earlier (the previews, Premier Edition, and even [MS-]DOS, you can examine the source code to iirc 1.0 and 1.1 to discover backoors on your own). It's part of its nature.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called "Linux", and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project.

There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called "Linux" distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.
