OMG you guys weren't kidding. Windows 10 sucks. I finally understand why no one uses it anymore. I heard the Linux brand is very good.

    @intromatt You should be prepared for the fact that libre office does not have nearly as many features as microsoft office. You could try to ms office up with wine though.

    One day, probably when I get a Raspberry Pi.

    @jhh2450 i have a windows 10 laptop at home and at work...between them i've had about 5 BSOD events in 2 years. I am as puzzeled as your are.

    I also have a Linux laptop that hasn't crashed once in the same 2 years so...that's something. 😋

    I haven't either.

    They probably installed a new driver or something.

    This post is a fuckin' joke. Thinking that I would actually use Libre Office is borderline insulting. I have shit to do.

    I need PowerPoint, I need Outlook!! This is a joke post and you guys are driving me to alcoholism with your comments. I run Windows 10 Insider's on FastRing on 6 different machines here....I have not seen a BSOD on any of them, ever...I actually had to Google a screenshot to see what it looks like.....@ThaOneDude

    Even with obscure drivers..it's still a 1 in 100 chance Windows will actually crash with a BSOD.

    If it does it will revert back after a reboot.

    @ThaOneDude It works great though, everyone where I work uses it and it works perfectly fine!

    @ThaOneDude I think the best alternative in Linux today is WPS Office, it has so many features as MS Office, as far as I know
  • 0
    Or you can stop struggling and pay the $5/month and buy Office365. It's the bargain of earth...especially considering OneDrive and all the awesome apps you get. Why always look for alternatives when the real thing is incredibly inexpensive and works/is compatible with everything (let's also consider how much your time is worth when you have to waste time fiddllllling with Libre and WPS...ugh)@pomodoroDev

    @intromatt first because I took five minutes to setup WPS, in my old install, because today I use only Google Docs and finally because I am not from USA/Canada and $5 when converted to my currency is a money which a simple spreadsheet and text editor that fills my storage with tons of unnecessary GBs isn't worth it.
  • 0
    I think that even in Bulgaria, $5/month that saves you so much grief and time is well worth it. Ohhh and Google docs is junk. I'll never understand this open source reasoning "sure I can drive a BMW for a few fucks but I'll take the donkey instead because it's free and I have to prove a non-existent point to some Internet people" reasoning. @pomodoroDev
  • 0
    @intromatt but I don't loose time, neither money! Ok if for you Google Docs is junkye but it fit my needs... And if I don't need a BMW to get where I want, simple I am not gonna use it, Keep It Simple Stupid... But that's only the way I go for the world

    Yeah, folk keep telling me that, but..

    In practice, I find when it goes pear shaped, the only practical solution is a total fresh install, again !

    Though I have managed to get it working from such wonders as, no visible screen due to driver issue..

    Which also knackers the dual boot option if you don't turn off this:

    > Windows 10: Disable the GUI
    > Boot Screen

    I found W10 a right pig to install, and keep happy.

    I only had to reinstall it a few dozen times over a period of 2 years, to get it stable today.. (Crosses fingers..)

    I have never seen anything like this before, not one thing you wrote makes sense. I have been in IT for 24 years and today can install Windows 10 off a USB drive in about 10-12 minutes on a modern system. You're clearly doing something wrong or using broken hardware. Reinstall 'few dozen times over a period of 2 years' - I am starting to think computers may not be your forte. @Nanos

    @intromatt Lol, I actually just set my wallpaper on my Linux distro as a BSOD, just 2 days ago for the sake of irony. It looks so similar!

    OMG that's awesome. For the sake of irony I am gonna install Gimp and LibreOffice on my Windows 10 laptop...it's gonnaaa be hilarious going back into the mid 1990s.. @noobxgenesis

    31 years here. :-)

    That's peachy.

    Now try doing it on a system that doesn't let you install from USB. :-)

    > You're clearly doing something

    Think driver issues.

    Think, its really really hard to find a piece of hardware whose drivers either work perfectly, or work with a new OS (Like W10 for example..)

    Really I'm not !

    I can have it working perfectly, then a windows update comes along and totally screws it up.

    Update your video driver, totally screws it up..

    Install Visual Studio, totally messes it up..

    I can provide links if you want. :-)

    But I usually find no one bothers to read them..

    Most people I find turn their machine on for 5 minutes a day, and say it works fine.

    Me, I use it all day.

    Here is an example of the kind of issues I come across:

    https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/F...

    Not a problem in Linux I imagine..

    Now if you (Or anyone!) knows of a software windows fix for the above problem, I'd be really impressed !
  • 0
    Wouldn't upgrading from an almost 20 year old OS fix this issue. I'm assuming, and please correct me if I'm wrong, this isn't an issue on Windows 10? @Nanos
  • 0
    I never have any of these issues and I use Visual Studio and the SQL management studio daily...both of these apps along with a dozen others run on my PC 24/7...and my computer is old, vintage... I'm trying, really trying to make Windows crash and even though I'm running Insider's Fast (essentially a beta OS).. I cannot make it BSOD.. @Nanos

    Strange on windows rant everybody says windows sucks, switch to linux... On linux rant they start to ask about driver/sw/hw/configurations problems and tell how to fix it... So i guess switch to linux comments didn't help

    P. S.
    No one? All the market share desktop os stats must be wrong

    Having multiple monitors is really cool and helpful, but it makes it even more depressing when you have a BSOD...
