I run a home network with several pc's in a rural area with shit internet access. There isn't a word in the dictionary that defines the level of hatred and contempt I hold for Microsoft and their perpetual updates half of which don't install and have to be re-downloaded often several times to the detriment of my fucking bandwidth, time, and patience.

One gets well acquainted with the Microsoft management module in Microsoft to desperately grasp a smidgen of control of this monstrosity called Windows. The ill-worded plucky comments that accompany updates serves only to add to the exasperation. No, I don't give a fuck about how great your update is and I see nothing beneficial in the constant 'newness' because your products largely suck and quit fucking acting as I have all the goddamn time in the world to FUCKING not turn my fucking pc off just so you can install more Microsoft surveillance and bloat onto my systems, you Redmond turd.

So, what was the question again? Replacing Windows? Every single fucking day. One day I will leap.

Get a cheap laptop and put linux mint on it. Fuck around with it and enjoy.

I installed windows with bootcamp one time, because of some windows-only games, but the malware it attracted made me uninstall it. It's been garbage for almost 35 years now, and that's not about to change. As far as the people who use it, what can you say?

Windows LTSB is what I jumped to after Microsoft's failed updates bootlooped my machine. The fuckers.
