Search - "no windows"
Installed Linux on an old windows laptop. This is my conversation 5 minutes ago...
Wife: "Have how you got internet?"
Me: "What do you mean, it has a wireless adapter built in?"
Wife: "But it's not Windows?"
Me: "Pass my phone, this is going on devRant"
Wife: "Please no, not again"25
First new job impression;
Me: you use Ubuntu as well? Nearly everyone does Linux here I see!
Me: So no windows?
CW: nahh, we want stuff that's fixable if it gets fucked. *mentions some things about windows*
Other co-worker: (obviously referring to windows) hey no swearing in here!
I like it there!35
"Sticky Notes have been updated. Restart now or later?"
Really Windows, really?
Sticky notes update requires restart..16
> *walking to school*
> *headphones on, music on*
> Kid wants to ask me something
> *takes off headphones*
"You're good with custom ROMs right?"
"Uuuh... Well, perhaps"
"Is it possible to install Windows on a Samsung tablet?"
> NO YOU DENSE MOTHERFUCKER
> *puts headphones back on*35
A conversation with our network/system admin.
Me : Can I install linux on my computer, windows is slow and terrible.
Him : No, if you use anything but Windows in this company, you will be fired for bypassing our security protocols. Its written in your contract.
Me : *boots up my Macbook*13
Windows 10 once again held my computer at ransom! When it finally came around after the update, all it really seem to do is place Edge back on my task bar. No... Bad Microsoft, I don't use or want Edge.6
There are only two reasons you should use Windows:
1. You are developing for Windows.
2. You cannot live without a game which still has no Linux support.
However, the right thing to do is refuse all contracts on Windows development and quit playing games that have no Linux port.24
Me and my father at breakfast.
Me: Do you wanna play Russian Roulette?
Father: I boot up Windows every day. I already live the risky life.3
QA just asked me, why does the website look so ugly and no CSS is working on Internet Explorer
I'm lucky I'm not the web dev lol
FUCK OFF WINDOWS. I NEED TO WORK BECAUSE MY DEADLINE IS COMING BUT NO, THE FUCKING WINDOWS DECIDED TO FUCKING UPDATE. I DON'T WANT AN UPDATE RIGHT NOW, YOU FUCKING PIECE OF SOFTWARE. I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR 1 HOUR TO GET TO 35%. 🖕🖕🖕🖕29
A: Hey look! I have a brand new computer!
B: Oh, so you use Linux?
A: No, I use Windows.
B: Than it's not your computer.15
Me: "Delete this folder"
Windows: "Oki, done."
Me: "How is it still there, F5. Still there! Hey, you forgot to delete this one file. Fix it."
Windows: "Requires permissions."
Me: "Eh, it was my file, but here you are, my admin credentials."
Windows: "None shall pass."
Me: "Wtf, this is my computer. Who owns this file?"
Windows: "No one."
Me: "What do you mean? Oh, time for your reboot pills, ms. Wandows."
Windows: "Noooooo... ... ... Welcome."
Me: "Ha, the file is gone. Glorious victory."
Windows: "It's just a flash wound."

After switching between Fedora, Ubuntu, Debian, Manjaro, Antergos and a dozen WM's I've settled for Arch on the desktop.
Took me over a week of trial and error, but it's worth the pain for the level of control you get.
Switching to Linux reminded me much of trying to find out if I liked text editors or IDE's more when I first started programming. I changed tools every day before I settled.
Screenshots of course. Now to actually get back to my JDBC projects before I start obsessing over how to get all my apps on the terminal. :D13
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.51
The new version of the (unofficial) client for Windows 10 mobile is now available! 😁
devRant unofficial (previously devFeed) has been updated to v18.104.22.168 and came out of beta! Over 40 changes since v0.9.10.0 beta.
For those who think that no one uses Windows 10 mobile, the latest version has been downloaded 460+ times! 😉40
That awesome feeling of closing all the tabs after debugging a server for 32 hours with no sleep.
By now i've seen ~40 of the 220 blue screen codes that windows has available...
Gotta catch em all!4
So. My grandma (280 km away) gave me a call.
Grandma: "Hiii. I have a problem with my PC."
Me thinking "ok. Just an ordinary tech support call from granny..."
Me: "Ok. What's the issue?"
Grandma: "Windows tells me there is no space left on drive F, non-stop"
Me: "As far as I know there is no drive F on your PC"
Grandma: "Would you be so kind to have a look?"
I agreed to log on via team viewer.
To cut an already long story short, there was this April Update which sent a bug all around the globe.
This bug exposed an internal drive Windows uses to do its Windows stuff - whatever it is.
Regularly these kind of drives are hidden from users eyes...
I finally solved it by applying a rollback on Windows.
The update is gone and with the next update there will be a fix from May to hide this drives again.
I do you scare grandparents all around the globe?!??12
Windows 10 Native SSH client inside CMD is crazy nice, no more putty... given its a windows feature and all!
(Hidden in additional features if any one is interested, will need a reboot to work)17
I like my windows phone I got from work. It gives me no reason to even look at it when I'm not working.2
I just set up a Win10 VM. We have now officially reached the point where it is easier to install Linux than Windows.3
Me: Open terminal on current folder
Me: Copy path of current folder
Me: Delete this desktop icon (Delete key)
Me: Lets move this icon to trash
Mac: Alrighty then, delete application.
Man i will have a hard time getting used to this, Windows had its cons but these small things made my life easier.20
- Hey it's lunch time!
- Yeah let me push these changes...
- No! You'll do it later.
- But, it will take 2 minutes!
- NO! WE'RE HAVING LUNCH NOW.
Windows crashes ._.3
*me using Windows 10, doing nothing special*
Windows: *MEEEEP* Goodbye. Here, take this random bluescreen. *Restarts*
*10 minutes later*
Windows: You know what? I like these bluescreens and I have so many varieties of them. Here take another random one. *Windows doing this 5 times in a row, no fix works*
Me: Fine... I'll reset my PC.
Windows: A full wipe and fresh install? Nah, I would like to not wipe properly so there will still be some data left. *Bsod right after "fresh" install*
Me: Man... I guess I'll check my drives and ram.
Drives: We are working fine! :)
Ram: *checking...* Oh yeah, there is some hardware problem...
Me: Pls no... I don't have any money...
Ram: I'll show you exactly what's wrong as soon as I finish checking...
Ram: Here you g-
Windows: *MEEEEP* Nah, I'm sure you don't wanna see this memory report... Let's just crash right now. :)
Me: *raging inside* ._.
Me: I'll take care of it tomorrow...15
- I'm forced to do dev on Windows with no admin because security
- We receive patches to critical systems from outside company on FTP secured with password "asd123" and install them without reading because fuck security2
Friend: you really should give Windows another chance, it's really not that bad.
Me: are you in possession of the only Windows computer that doesn't blue screen whenever there's a strong breeze outside?
Friend: No ... That does happen every now and then.
Me: So what's great about it then?
Friend: Look at this cool wallpaper, it's a slideshow of pictures of my kids.
Me: ... stop talking to me immediately ... and sit over there.16
Stupid tech guy: "You should use Windows, it's bettter"
Me: "No i quit Windows and use Linux"
At the end of the day he updates Windows and got a BSOD...
I laughed and walked off8
HW issue causing blue screens? Windows' fault.
Driver bug? Windows' fault.
A program crashing? Windows' fault.
"Forced" updates you could've turned off? Windows' fault.
You have no common sense? Windows' fault.
Your girlfriend leaving you? Windows' fault.
Let's blame Windows because I got nothing else to blame.28
Hi update for your PC is available do you want to upgrade?
Ok your update will start in 10 minutes 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭6
*sees everybody saying how great Linux is*
*Tries deepin OS*
*Keyboard backlight not working *
*Searches YouTube for a fix*
*Fixes the Backlight*
*Screen resolution set to 800*600 by defualt (monitor 1920*1080)*
*Grub decides there is no need for a windows entry*

*Learns the lesson*
*Ooh OS X seems nice*
One of my older servers just went down. It's been hacked. How do I know this you ask? Is it mining bitcoin?
No - windows event viewer has no errors in the logs for the last 48 hours.6
Does anyone else hate the screens after you're done updating Windows 10. "Hi, we've updated your computer"
Like no shit Windows I just spent 4 hours waiting for you to finish updating and 5 restarts later.8
Yesterday I installed windows on the laptop of my parents. I thought no biggie I'm just going to do something else while it installs. AND THEN IT STARTS TALKING. WTF!!!
Also it said I can turn the voice of BUT THE FUCKING BUTTON DIDN'T WORK.
I hate windows.8
Sometimes I feel like people here bitch about Windows and Microsoft when half of their issues aren't even Windows/Microsoft's fault. 🤷🏻♂️🤷🏻♂️
There's no way to prove it, but it's basically someone who has their mind made up that Windows is shit, therefore it points out every single thing, especially the trivial shit, that's wrong.
(I'm the same way with iOS/MacOS lol)11
Yesterday: "11 updates available"
*Didn't install them to avoid the restart notification*
Today: "No updates available"
My brother: “There’s no way you can remove games from my computer!”
Me: “Oh really?”
Bro: “Yes! I got password on Windows!”
He didn’t knew I had remote control setup on my PC... So I hid games on his PC6
Skype, on my laptop, updated the other day. It was like: 'Oh hey we're downloading skype for windows 10!', and I was like 'oh yeah? cool! ... wait, I'm not on Windows 10 WAIT WHAT ARE YOU DOING NO WAIT NO STOP'
And now it doesn't work. Yay!3
Windows you absolute bitch. No prompt, nothing. Just started updating in the middle of my unsaved homework.32
Just saw a blue screen of death In the top of a taxi cab. Had no idea these kind of signs were running Windows. Why are so many companies buying licenses for Windows when they could so easily use Linux ?21
Taught my whole team that you can enter cmd/bash commands directly into windows explorer in the location bar.
No point in opening git bash to just clone a repo or open cmd just to run a php server.8
New windows update,
Do you wanna Enable Speech assistant?
Do you want to be tracked?
Me, HELL NO!
Do you want a special ID that we can give you better ads?
Me, WTF WINDOWS!
Let's have a real debate.
Not Linux vs Windows vs Mac.
Not Vim vs Emacs.
Not ASP.NET vs Spring Frameworks.
CHARACTER LIMIT. 80, 100, or 120+ and WHY.27
I don't use Windows
I don't use MacOS
I have no Apple products
I don't do PHP
I don't do Ruby
And I'm still doing great!
See, it's possible to be happy and do great at the same time:)12
If your npm/yarn config breaks on windows clap your hands
If your npm/yarn config breaks on windows clap your hands
Express generator doesn't work, and sass will up and break because there is no support for windows clap your hands
Sigh.......das it...i am bringing the mac or one of my Linux machines tomorrow........11
I have a Kali Linux VM running on my Windows machine. I decide to try and exploit the Windows machine (THAT THE VM WAS RUNNING ON) because of a vulnerability with smb that requires NO user interaction. I decided to make my computer shoot its own legs and I thought "Hey, this is gonna be fine."
Aaaaand the whole system crashed on me.3
Windows 10 update: no more wifi, no more trackpad, 60MB more RAM usage when idle.
Dear Developers at Microsoft,
Why the FUCK does windows try to update EVERY TIME I boot my VM even though it fails EVERY FUCKING TIME? Can't it fucking learn that it's fucking broken and doesn't work? No? OK...7
Me: Enables USB debugging, plugs in phone
ADB: Doesnt see phone
Windows: Doesnt have drivers
Me: Downloads drivers
Me: Tells windows to use drivers
Me: Tells windows where drivers are
Windows: Naaah no drivers there20
Just updated to the latest insider build for Windows 10.. left PC unattended and came back later and it was ready... no BSODs, no random crashes, no issues, nothing... it just works as expected...
I can hear Linux fanatics screaming after reading this 😂
FUCK all this Windows stereotypes BS going on here16
hey guys found some cool trick for windows users
in file explorer if you type "cmd" in the address bar, it opens cmd with the directory set to the current directory14
I didn't download that fucking 56MB Skype Installation File just to get this message:
"Please install Skype from the Windows Store for better Performance."
NO I WANTED TO INSTALL THE OLD SKYPE NOT THIS BUGGY PIECE OF SHIT!2
That's how computers look in our school (with main focus on science)...
This white line at the top on Spotify Windows desktop app is triggering me. And no it's not my screen.7
I don't want to come off as a linux-elitist but it's simply amazing how much easier my job is on linux. A good example recently was setting up some libraries for a C++ program I was writing to show to my class. Most of them were using Windows and visual studio, took about 15 minutes to download all the headers and libs, and show them how to configure a VS solution to link them. Not too big a deal but on linux, it only took about 30 seconds to pacman and gcc -l the lib. Little things like that keep me interested in linux as a dev tool.14
My biggest hurdle:
Having to install Windows because some old application only runs on Windows.
No, i do not want to sign in.
I AM SURE
Installer: How about signing in?
Edit: Now it asks me about privacy options. As if i even had a choice..12
Dear Windows users: instead of upgrade to Windows 10, why don't you downgrade to Dos? It appears to have less issues.7
I seriously do not understand the rants against Windows.
I love Windows 10 (got as free upgrade from MS), and have no issues with MacOS or Linux OS. I use them as well but do all serious work on Windows.
All my life, I have worked on business / commercial side and picked up Web development in last couple of years. I started using computers on DOS in 1992, and shifted to Windows 3.0 in 1995. There was no Mac or MacOS back then.
For serious work, I purchased a old Dell Precision M4700 workstation grade laptop with quad-core i7, at throwaway price, got 32GB RAM, 2.4TB (1x2 TB + 400gb) of SSD on super sale online, and installed it myself. It easily supports dual 4k monitors.
Git-bash on windows allows all the necessary linux command line on windows. Though not tried, Windows 10 allows embedded Ubunutu with linux terminal. Web development tools like - VSCode, git, github / bitbucket clients, NVM/Node, React / Redux / Webpack / Gatsby / Jest, REST clients, GraphQL client and server, Graph Server, Chrome PWA / Chrome Dev Tools, http/Websocket/WebRTC interception, Google Firebase SDKs, AWS sdks, cloud utilities, CI/CD tools work flawlessly. Windows even has its own package manager for applications.31
Well, I guess all the Linux folks are going to know what I am talking about. Do you know this feeling (Yes, you know. Don't tell me anything.) when you use Linux and nobody else uses Linux in your Work/School. And these people come to you and say.
Stupid people : Oh! You use Linux. That's bullshit!
Me : No it's not. It doesn't do 24/7 updates like Windows.
Stupid people : No, Linux is bullshit you don't have money for Windows. And Linux can't run professional Applications.
Unfortunately there is no medicine that cures dumbness. Just saying ...
I'd rather stay not dumb like these people instead of buying another Windows license.24
Today a classmate that I was telling about Linux (he was like no its useless I don't need it I like windows) have tried Linux at home and he like it so much that he installed it on his PC and deleted windows. Well he said he should listen to me the first time and he would be happy few months before.
Well I'm not telling you bullshit about stuff.3
They really need to improve the algorithm that is searching for things in Windows Explorer. Literally:
Windows: *Searching for files in Downloads*
Me: I just typed .mp4, what is taking so long!?
Windows: *No results.*4
ditched windows for good 2 months ago. never been happier!
"I really miss unexpected and time consuming OS updates!"
- no one ever10
It's bloody 2019 and the navigation bars on smartphones are still on top. There's no denying that Windows phones did get some things right. I miss them.36
Since december Windows keeps telling me that my IT administrator wants to scan my items when I build something in Visual Studio.
We have no IT administrator.
The illuminati are controlling my anti virus software3
Won the 2nd prize in a Microsoft hosted hackathon. No for Windows but they really have good cognitive services. Used Azure vision api, one of the good ocr service available.2
Wtf windows I leave my computer for 30 fucking minutes and you just initiate an update. No confirmation box that I want to shut down my entire computer for an hour. Fuck you windows15
It says "There was no battery found."
This laptop was not connected to a power adapter, but Windows also said that there is no battery. Did I missed the update where Microsoft implemented magic wireless energy?7
Windows 10 just notified me that my laptop battery is at 6% and shut it down immediately. No warning before that.3

> maybe not even install windows on shiny new laptop?

Why only with Debian and not with literally any other flavor of Linux I've tried, which are all Debian variants?
If Adobe would just release their products on Linux I would literally have no reason to ever use Windows again...11
Windows: No internet connection.
Me: Runs troubleshooter.
Windows: Problem found and resolved: Default Gateway Server is not available
Me: Wait.. since when can windows fix user input?!
Windows: Still no internet connection4
Actually I'm pleasantly surprised about Windows' stability nowadays. It's capable for running for up to a week with no stability issues, whereas systemd on the other hand.. let's just say that my Arch containers could do better right now.
Data mining aside, damn man.. Microsoft is improving for once! Is this the so-many'th unusable/somewhat stable switch? I mean, it's not like we haven't seen that happen yet! Windows 98, shit! Windows 2000, kinda alright! Windows Me, shit! Windows XP, kinda alright! Windows Vista, oh don't even get me started on that pile of garbage! Windows 7, again kinda okay! Windows 8, WHERE THE FUCK DID THAT START MENU GO YOU MOTHERFUCKERS?!!! Windows 10, well at least that Start menu got fixed. Then it got into some severe QA issues, which now seem to have gotten somewhat fixed again.
I'm starting to see a pattern here! 🤔13
devRant competition - can you convince someone that you're hacking?
Windows (Linux is too easy)
You must use genuine windows command line and the following commands:
color 0a (if this isn't supported in your windows os, you can change it in properties)
The point of this is to see how easily you can convince someone you're hacking/doing something malicious. No prize or anything, I just want to see how ignorant those muggles are.8
Tried installing docker on windows today (for an experiment) and after it finally installs and goes to start up i get the hyper-v required, installing will prevent virtualbox from working.
Yea... FUCK NO! There goes that idea 😡4
I hate people who dog on wsl
Windows subsystem Linux
I use it. It has been wonderful. No problems that Google couldn't fix. Always a patch or an update.
And I can use Windows just fine.
No dual boot needed, no bullshit wine needed, no having to do without Photoshop
There,.. I'm out of the closet
My uncle showed me how to use it ok mom and dad
I'm starting a wsl parade who's in10
was working on a passion project, looking at the clock periodically. was surprised a couple of times that it's still before 12 but kept on working. it wasn't. its 3 am. windows' clock was stuck. i have to get up in 4 hours. fml.3
Well done Google, well done.
I think you should really work on your password checking algorithm, or it may look as though as you are **purposefully** are trying to make it as easy as possible to hack your users' accounts. Well done.
I just typed in one word. ONE FRACKING WORD. The word is, you're going to love it, Buddhism. Wow. Apparently no computer can guess an EIGHT LETTER WORD that starts with a capitol letter.23
When an application leaves a context menu item floating on top of all other Windows and you have no idea which process is the culprit!9
Let's play "Count the operating systems in my household"! I'll start:
- Windows 10 Pro on 1tb drive in desktop
- Windows 10 Enterprise VM on desktop
- Ubuntu 18 VM on desktop
- Ubuntu WSL on desktop
- Ubuntu 18 on seconds drive in desktop
- Manjaro on Cheap laptop
- Manjaro on old, expensive laptop
- Windows 10 Pro on new expensive laptop
- Windows 10 Enterprise VM on new expensive laptop
Just realized I have no dual booters :o20
Windows 10 wants to ruin my life by consuming almost 70% of memory for itself from 4 gigs.
No application is running and still consuming that much of memory. Now I just hate the updates of windows 10 pro.
Any suggestions to get rid of this situation?30
github security flaw affects mac os and linux... no windows, and no MS didn't take over github yet
Just had someone try to tell me that Windows programs are more stable in WINE than in Windows. Haha no.6
Tested a site in edge browser but it kept crashing the browser. No idea why the site was crashing. Other sites worked fine. How did I fix it?
Company switched some users from windows 7 to windows 10 overnight. Installation failed for most of the Dev team.
- No admin access
- Files missing
- Programs missing
Result : we can't work :/5
Switching to macOS was an entry to paradise.
I go to Windows only to play Call of Duty. It’s crap and always will be.
P.S no comments on Linux.8
Windows: would you like to update?
Me: no not rn I'm currently on battery and traveling, let me just quickly restart.
Windows: Okay I'll install the latest updates for you.
Me: oh FFS11
There is to much hate in the world already without hating on Windows because you are a Linux user, or vice Versa.
All I'm reading is windows is shit! Linux is for supreme devs.
More to life than hate! Respect each other's skills. Skills are like race all are unique and no one race is superior and don't discriminate because of skills.41
I love Docker... but i absolutely fucking hate Docker for Windows.
No matter what I fucking do after a couple of hours messing around i find the "its a known limitation on Docker for Windows..." FUCK YOU14
Biggest thing that pisses me off about windows 10 is the fact that they do not give two shits about wasting your internet, and they try to hide everything in obscure split settings, set updates to happen at a specific time sure but did your dumb ass remember to disable downloading app updates in the store? Probably not.
Heck how about we preload apps for you because you are on mobile aren't you, we know it is a desktop but we would really love to be the next android so here you go have apps all the apps.
Instead of being the foundation for things you actually intend to install we want to also give you a sample fucking 200 level tower that will take forever to demolish so you can start building the cozy cottage you do want.
I am digressing , but final thought is just that Windows can be a 1gb install since the rest of the shit is what fucktards that use a Samsung S8 just to facebook want.
11.1/11.4 GB of RAM is being eaten open on boot, even though I just rebooted. Almost half of my swap is in use too. WTF! Windows is no help in explaining it either...SO ANNOYING!19
Windows asks to update. I say no and 10min later i get this casual update continuing.
Glad i have a say in life8
Enjoying my new dev environment already.
This is a real install alongside my existing windows install. Surprisingly enough, windows has in no way complained about Arch!12
My non dev friend called me in middle of night for getting shortcut virus removed! I would have blasted 🔫 him but I felt pity on the guy as I know that he is poor with tech stuff
Any he had only windows, so I Google up solution and replied back to him.
He asked where to put it. I told him in cmd. He is like what so I told him to press win+r then in that type d and "black" 🏴 window will appear. Type in that.
guess what he typed exactly as mentioned in the reply and didn't replace the drive name properly .😑
I told him to put proper drive and saw that he missed spaces so l told him that he missed space 😤 and he put only one space and it still had problem so I had to explain it in weirdest was possible( shown in fig 1.1 had been writing report and figure gave yo be mentioned with number 😅)
Finally. It was all done! Well some pf my cs ( !counter strike but computer science friend) are worse then this can't use teminal or even connect to WiFi (wpa-enterprise @ college with mschap v2 and peap auth which is crackable using twin tower and brute force) properly, do I guess it not BA's that this guy cry to get rid of shortcut virus (virus > wifi setup) 😬
Finally I feel relived after ranting 😪5
Finally dumped windows from my tower/gaming rig!!!
I'm now running Ubuntu Budgie and Windows 10 inside a qemu/kvm VM with gpu passthrough. That way I have almost-native performance and no additional setup effort for installing games.7
I'm switching companies. Gonna have to use Windows, grr. No Linux for development machines. :(
How do you guys keep yourself productive in Windows? I honestly can't in its bare state.
Best idea, for now, is just using a VM on top of Windows and ignore the Host OS.15
That moment when u buy an extra SSD so you can have windows to play some random MMOs with your friends and that bitch tries to sneak your Linux's boot priority.
No Windows, u're just here to play some games. No u can't boot everytime. Only linux can do that. Thank's but I don't even want a browser on you, I already have all the .exe files I need.2
Good morning windows. As you can see spotify is installed and running but windows search says "no results"
Why windows is always so stupid.11
Stupid piece of legacy shit needing to silent print without the dialogs in IE on windows 10.
this is proving to be a thing of nightmares.
this has worked for years but no windows need to block this “for security”
windows and security - i would laugh but this is going to keep me awake at night.1
Holy Shit! I had no idea legit Windows 10 Pro was available for mere $25 !!
I've been living in a cave all this time. On all other sites, it costs ~ $200
Go play asia if you need one.17
I am forced to use IDE and Text Editor against my will.
I hate eclipse, but what to do, Salesforce support that IDE only, although VSCode has one plugin for that, but it's not the best,
Why I hate Eclipse you ask?
1. Null pointers
2. No Emmet
3. No Autcomplete
4. Runs like shit on Windows 10 (See my last rant for windows 10)
5. no pretty print extensions/plugins for isml
For my personal projects I am forced to work on Sublime because again VSCode decided to drop
1. Syntax Highlighting
(Fuck you for hating php)11
One of my colleagues tried upgrading his Windows 7 laptop to Windows 10... he had multiple issues getting the installer to run but got past it after a couple of hours troubleshooting.
He left for lunch when it got to 81% installed, and got back an hour later to find "Something Happened" proudly displaying on-screen.
He clicked 'okay' and it just started rolling back to Windows 7 with no explanation as to what happened, or even any error codes!
As helpful as always!5
I'm making a telegram bot to allow printing and scanning for my roommates that have Windows and since printer and scanner are prehistoric there are no drivers that work with Windows higher than XP.
I'm looking for more ideas on features for bot.18
Looking at a file with no extention in the Windows file explorer... the file type is listed as "file"... no shit!3
I had a dream that I was dual-booting Linux and Windows together 😨.
Thank God it was just a dream.2
I like developing on windows. Like many people here I got into development at home starting as a hobby when I was in school so there were things I still did on my computer that Linux wasn't really appropriate for.
I've made the jump to Linux in the past but found that it was awkward and annoying when I needed to do something on my windows. And I hate doing Dev out of a VM. So I've just got used to using windows at home.
And honestly, I don't know what's happening to everyone who keeps getting broken Windows updates. I think I've had 2 in living memory.
It's in no way perfect but what is? I don't use Windows servers, just for when I'm at home.
Oh god! Why did I change to Ubuntu!!! This machine is running hotter and slower!!! Battery drains faster than ever!
There's no going back to windows 10... looking back, I love windows 10 despite its faults :')
Did anyone else experience the same? First thing I'm doing in the morning is install arch linux18
Windows update time..
Can't, error 0x8024a105
No problem, I'll google that !
First answer in the list:
In the recent Windows 10 update, the error code 0x8024a105 appeared and the update stopped.
How to repair?
Edited by hugeB, 15 March 2017 - 05:46 AM.
Fantastic you solved it, how....10
Fuck windows, fuck macOS, fuck php, fuck nodejs, fuck this, fuck that....
With all the bashing over everything, I think I’ll go back to VB6... at least no ones hating on that!4
Me - sits down to code
Windows - need to install small update
Me - skip
Windows - HELL NO UPDATE
6 hours later.......
Fuck you Windows 10, WMI Porvider host taking 22% of an i7 CPU for no reason.
Doesn't matter what PC you have, Windows will fuck it up, whatever it takes13
Me: *tries to deactivate windows 10 feedback*
Windows: nope *turns it back on*
Me: *Feels sorry for shitty quality*2
Today I woke up and my old Windows 7 desktop welcomed me with a fresh Windows 10 installation. I'm still trying to figure out who did it because it wasn't me or my wife. I only remember saying no multiple times to the upgrade request. At least I don't notice it being any slower.10
Ran Windows RAM diagnostic tools because I was too lazy to get my Linux USB-stick. Ran for 20 minutes, restarted - "There are hardware problems present."
NO SHIT. No info how many errors, no log file mentioned, no code or anything. Something happened. How retarded can a diagnostic tool be?
Guess laziness gets you punished immediately...1
Well paid java dev. But the HW/SW-Stack is awful.
Monitor: single 1600x1024
5yr old notebook, old i5, magnetic hdd
Forced to use windows 7
No maven server
No CI server
SVN but no git
Eclipse, no intelliJ
No sonar server
There are days where I just can't take it anymore.11
Found this on the big ass advert screen outside my cinema. The Dino represents my feelings very well to that exact message 😂2
How many of us would like windows phone to be back. Its an awesome os, no lag, almost has all the apps(i am watching netflix on it) and the best build quality.18
tl;dr version: I now hate Windows.
I installed Ubuntu in dual boot on my PC and I was sceptical.
After one month everything is working perfectly. I'm loving this OS although I still am not an expert, and I doubt I'll ever go back to Windows.
Now. Today at school we were drawing using a CAD software and, for no reason at all, Windows crashed. This is not a terrible thing, as I usually save often, but this time it also corrupted the file and I had to start from scratch again!
Why Windows, why?4
WTF!!!!!!!!!! THIS ONE IS NASTY!!!!! CANT GET THE POPU TO GO AWAY NO MATTER WHAT AND CANT SWITCH WINDOWS....UGH................. All my open tabs.....16
I bought a corporate refurb HP desktop to use to replace a rpi3 in an IoT project I was working on. It came with Windows 10 on it. It has an ethernet port on it, which is what I prefer, but Windows 10 couldn't see it. So I installed Debian and everything worked perfectly, with no driver config.
New DPO (Data protection officer): "Everybody must have an antivirus installed. You have an antivirus"
Me:"No, at the moment. I use Linux. I could install one to detect Windows virus"6
Installed windows 10 in a virtual machine, fresh install no updates.
"Windows, what are you playing at we both know you are lying, how many updates do you have?"
"Away and install them NOW so that you don't reboot on me when I'm doing something important, ok?"
Remember, windows update rules should be like bathroom breaks on a long car journey, everyone goes before you leave and only when you stop for gas
Been using linux for over 10 years, just got so-called-fast-no-windows-defender-no-bloatware-completely-revamped-clean-and-resource-efficient Windows 10 Lite poromotion by 3 close friends. we are now enemies.
IT description of remote access tool on IT wiki page:
"Support for latest Mac and Windows release"
Also same page:
"macOS Mojave is not yet supported (...) Please do not upgraded until instructed"
Coding along, frustrated already, need to restart computer to test something.
Of course im running on Windows and then I realize I have no restart opinion, the only one that exists is "update and restart"
My Win 10 stopped updating 2 months ago. "Windows update database error" it says. No fix worked, the only thing to do (according to Microsoft assistance) is to reinstall the whole system. Only because i clicked on "postpone" to the last one.
I really miss Windows 7...4
Waiting 15+ minutes while Windows "indexes" a folder just so I can see the contents reminds me of why I dislike Windows as an OS so much.
This is a senseless operation that is of no benefit to the user.5
Wondering what the hell is Windows doing when there is no processes yet still lags on keyboard input.2
Windows Update prompted me to install the 1809 update for Windows 10 recently.
I left the machine for a while and came back to find it frozen at a completely blank screen.
It eventually restarted...and got stuck in a continual loop where the Windows logo would flash for a second and then instantly restart again.
The restart occurred so early in the boot process that I couldn’t even get it into recovery mode or do anything with it to fix it.
So I had no choice but to reinstall Windows from scratch and reinstall and restore all my software and files. Took about 7 hours.
First rant guys!
I'm a .net and PHP developer and love visual studio. I also hate windows 10 and it's stupid surprise reboots. Twice I switched to Linux mint but returned to windows because of the IDE. Been on VS (with PHP tools) for too long and nothing on Linux comes close to VS not to mention the lack of .net 4.6 (no mono) on Linux. M$ make Visual Studio 2015 cross platform!9
Windows: restarting in 10 seconds
Me: probably just a bug or something like that *click OK button*
10 seconds later
Me: it's no a bug! IT'S NOT A BUG! let me save my stuff
(I don't now why windows did that it made some kind of update without warning except for the 10 seconds and then I had some problem s like I couldn't connect to a SQL server and the computer was super slow)6
How Mark Zuckerberg tells Bill Gates that his company is retarded.
Whatsapp works with M$ Edge 13+
DOWNLOAD THE LATEST VERSION OF WINDOWS 10 or use Google Chrome, Firefox... 😂😂😂 -- No. you can't just download M$ Efge 13+ it won't work7
Working with calculator(Core 2 Duo) after using 4th gen i7....
Oh just forgot to tell...
Calculator had windows 10 with no search working.
From Multitasking to ↣ ..…2
yeah I am a software engineer.
yea I am a programmer too.
yeah I am behind my laptop all the time..
but no I don't want to fix your computer.
I have no interest in changing your windows, installing antivirus on your pc and so on..
just understand it , God damn these shit people :(
Ever since installing Windows 7 a month ago it always showed the wrong time on the clock, no matter what I did.
Yesterday the trial period ran out and suddenly the clock works perfectly.
Just an update : never fucking install windows 7 on a new desktop without first reading , fucking piece of shit won’t detect my SSD , tried different solution over the Internet to no success, after 3 hours of nerve wrecking debugging I read a post on the Internet that “some”(not sure which) versions of windows just don’t detect an SSD,
Finally done by installing windows 10,
But nooooooo will windows let me die in peace, noooooooo
Every fucking time I restart my PC “ windows is installing updates
I mean fuck you , how fucking many bugs do you squash in a day.
Probably some engineer at Microsoft will be “ oops o dropped a donut on my keyboard, let just press ctrl + z” to undo changes and upload , lol “8
When windows decides to force you to update when shutting down, like no problem, not like I have a fucking deadline or anything.1
On the positive note, I just installed win 10 on my PC, so I can finally play some MMO with my gf with more than 30 seconds per frame. Needless to say, my first installs were Msys2 and gvim :)
PS, any suggestions on a free casual MMO we could play together? I was thinking about TERA, but not set on anything yet.17
Windows 10 doesn't to let me use my wifi.
No way to solve it.
Is this a new Windows feature?11
I'm ashamed of it, but I want to share my tifu-story:
My colleague asked me if I could rename his windows user name because he married and changed his last name. I changed it in the Active Directory, but he got some problems when he wants to log on. On every startup his old name appears. Simpliest task. Let me google that.
Easy going, let me just change this registry entry. Reboot. Old behaviour. Okay, I changed some of the other entries. Reboot. Yeah, his new name appears. But wait a moment. Windows just nulled his entire user profile and deleted all the data. "oh, haha you have a backup, right?" - "no, I saved everything on the desktop, all my work is gone!"
But at the end, the boss was mad at HIM, because he doesn't used the file server or any backup system.
i am not a smart man5
Fall Creators Update did some changes to Bash on Windows, first they renamed it to WSL(Windows Subsystem for Linux) and now you can have multiple distros on it.
They also added it to Windows Server.
I have no idea why people would use Windows Server, but I guess that if you are forced to use it, you can now use Linux utilities on it, so woot? I guess.5
Man I fucking love debugging Windows applications... OpenVPN dun shit the bed because the management interface is locked (on the Windows client I presume?) - so poke that error message into the Gargler along with "openvpn windows"... First result, OpenVPN forums. Excellent. ... Some dickhead in the forums: "this is the wrong forum, this is for Access-Server users, and you the user MUST have terminated the process".
Come fucking on! If only I could replace this fucking device with a proper OS already (and no I can't). Windows itself being a clusterfuck is one thing but the goddamn support around it. Atrocious!4
So a month ago, my uncle gave me a Windows PC tower, so I would experience the wonders of Windows, since I am a Mac main and Linux secondary user. Today it requested to do an update, so I did.
An hour later: Everything is gone. EVERYTHING.
No OS, no files, nothing! What the fuck!? I was setting the damn thing up so I could USE it, not LOSE it!10
I don't generally agree with the death sentence, but maaaybe it should be allowed specifically for the person who created the current iteration of Windows Update. Just got woken up by a video playing on my computer, which happened because Windows fucking Update thought it was a good time to reboot for no reason.
Docker y u no mounting volumes on Windows anymore...?
World y u use Windows at all?
Note to self, y u no problem-solving instead of devrant posting?8
I am amazed. My laptop died due to lack of electricity (no battery), but Windows still managed to prepare update and forces me to install it when I turned it back on. And of course it requires multiple restarts.1
if Microsoft no longer supports Windows 7 and I don't have a legit copy anyway, why is it always updating.
i boot into Windows once every 3 months to play sumn on steam or just remind myself of the suffering that I once knew, and there's always all these updates.4
Gotta love it when your client tells his whole company that they can contact you for any question related to computers. I'm a fucking developer and no first level Microsoft Windows support.2
You know what, I think the USA government just had a Windows Update, oh no wait, their versions of Windows are too old, they ain’t attacked by MS anymore.
one of the disadvantages of not using windows is no blue screen, another one is high learning rate.6
My windows defender has gone out of the window.
Now whenever i open windows security app, it shows a blank page.
There's is no tray process running and I can't find any service too.
I know it's a huge virus attack.
Can anyone suggest some methods to know what is causing this problem?
This has happened once before. That time i used DISM and checked windows files integrity. It replaced corrupted ones and then windows worked fine.
This time i want to know the cause.
I wanna root it out and rip it apart.15
Dark theme tip for windows users
Use magnifying glass set it to 100% then options invert colors. You'll get everything dark themed now but no missing stuff like you would get from a high contrast dark theme.5
Permanently moved from Windows now.
Office Laptop: Ubuntu 18.04
Personal Laptop: Debian 10.0 (Cinnamon)12
My phone just died. Got a new phone on recommendation of friends and flash Jolla on it. The OS is super nice but the "Android support" doesnt work. No lastpass, no netflix, no prime, signal works half, no banking app.
I really need my windows phone back. It just worked without issues. After two android phones and now a Jolla in about two years im kinda done with all this shit.15
No better way to start a work day than ubuntu randomly deciding that it can't connect to a wired connetion that worked yesterday and works perfectly on windows....3
Got tired of Windows 10 giving me BSODs
Tried fixing it (previous rant)
Decided to get rid of it
Purged Windows 10 along with Mint for good
Booted Solus (It's awesome)
Installation failed - Input/Output error(5)
Maybe ISO got corrupted
Downloaded ISO again (painfully slowly)
Booted to Login screen
Incorrect username/password (shit)
Tried again x times (absolutely correct username and password, I'm sure)
Booted from the same USB again
Format and Install (again)
Installation failed - Input/Output error(5)
I'm not sure what's going wrong here..
My laptop is soulless right now..9
Anyone run Linux as there daily driver? (Work or Personal) Why do you use it? For me its because I am techliterate and I need a OS that meets my needs.9
Ahhhhh, no better feeling than a fresh windows installation... Now to hate myself and reinstall Visual Studio and Android Studio...
*Sits in the corner and cries*
Battle of titans:
Me vs Windows Update.
No, this time not about automatic restarts interrupting my work because I've postponed "important" updates for far too long.
Well, technically I lied.
Last evening windows force rebooted to install updates. OK then, I'll go home. This morning I saw windows update frozen at some percentage.
This evening I've got 3 forced restarts in 5 minutes. Only notepad++ with an opened and unsaved document saved my life.
Apparently, windows update follows a simple logic:
if(user.IsUsingComputer && lastUpgradeAttempt.HasFailedWithTotalFreeze && versionUpgrade.CanInstallOnlyWithFreshWindowsInstallation)
Seriosly. Why am I forced to install an update only to see it lock up the entire computer and rollback after I intervene? Last time I had this issue only reinstalling windows helped, which costs about 2 days. Excluding one day to try suggested solutions, remove drivers, av scanner, etc.
Is it really that hard to implement logic like:
Wasted 2 hours configuring smtp on this Windows box. I hate when clients choose the OS with no relevance to the language.2
Why do windows users keep installing those bloated anti viruses and firewalls that just slow the hack of their system when windows essentials is enough with near to no impact
Those are the same people that got their system full with malware4
I have stopped Windows updates in my laptop. But no windows has to do some shit in order to maintain its reputation. Every 10 min I get this pop up.9
One day i had to show something to a friend on windows(on a macbook). So logged in, shared hotspot and finished what i had and when i shut down, it said Getting Windows ready(or whatever the message was).. i thought as why that was but i closed the mac having no time.. later checked my mobile data where i see that windows ate 1.2gb updating windows without any notification or something..
I think you should think well before sharing your hotspot on some weirdo OS🤔3
That feeling when Linux has better support for image formats... 😂
I've tried to open ARW files on Windows all day, no luck. Works 'out of the box' on my Antergos system.2
I bought a new pc and am excited about using it, but, Windows wouldn't be Windows if its installation went flawlessly. Facking Windows.
For 4 evenings I've been trying to get Windows 7 installed on it, and it just fails with the sooooo helpful error message 😑 It's missing a driver for a cd/dvd drive but of course it won't specify which, or where to get it. Moreover, I don't even have a facking cd/dvd drive!! Moronic Windows. (I'm (trying to) install via usb). For fuck sake
I tried everything Google had to offer, but to no avail. Now I am just stuck. Silently sitting there... Not coming up with solutions.
I also don't have another laptop or anything so for every idea/attempt I have to go to friends to get it. It just pisses me off. FACKING Windows12
Dear Docker for Windows I know you exist to make devs on Windows life easier. But DEAR GOD, with all the firewall/group policy problems..you have been the pain of my existence during this short time developing on Windows.
Literally have a countdown on the time left until I get to no longer do a rain dance for my development environment to work.2
Every Morning I wake up with a subtle headache. It’s not as bad as with a hangover but still like a dehydration headache. I drink like 3 - 4 Liters of Water per day though so it can’t be that.
Any ideas on how to fix this? It makes getting up just even harder than it already is..27
What is windows actually looking for when it's "looking for a solution", it's like a kid trying their hardest to spell a word. There's a chance it'll work, but realistically there is no hope.1
Wait since when has the default windows IIS tools allowed for custom subdomains on localhost?!
So I've been swapping out all my code for no reason...1
Windows 7 as work PC
I like listen to music, but i hate windows mediaplayer to setup
Wrot vbscript to play my music
No need of setup windows mediaplayer or other software... I like to have it far far away, no window nothing what can disturbe me while work💪🎧1
That moment when the bluetooth headset has a better connection (no stuttering) to your android phone in the other room than to the windows pc right in front of you...7
Recently I wondered why so many people complained about Windows 10. I had no issues, no crashes, and no bluescreens. Everything was fine.
Then the "anniversary update" installed. After days of restoring partitions, reinstalling, boot repairs and blue screens I realized Windows 10 is now incompatible with my PC.
Well, good thing MS extended support for Windows 7...
I swear, I started yesterday windows once for some guilty gaming. ONCE
Tried to connect Bluetooth headset
-> BSOD on the first try. Fuckn os can't handle shit
Works second time.
*Finish gaming business*
Want to shut down windows
"oh, I can only shutdown if I install your fucking update? Well fuck me pls no delet pingu partition
Next day. Pingu is alive. Wanna connect headphones.
* Connection: yes
* Connection: yes
Fuckn ok, does it still work in windows?
Spoiler: fucking no! Very cool. I didn't there would be a better waste of time than gaming, but windows always fund a way to fuck you shit up.
Windows vista was less of a pain, windows 7 a nice memory and this is just an abortion fucking kept alive for the proving god that human can create a better hell for people than lucifer could ever imagine.
Way to go windows, I appreciate MacOS now1
Microsoft Teams logic when using it from Chrome on Linux:
Wanna have a team call with multiple people? Sure no problem, proceed.
Wanna have a direct call with one person? Hell no, we don't do that here!
Also lets just ignore the fact that you are actually running Google Chrome, you should really try out Windows and Edge.1
Today after 6 years I used windows in my cousin's laptop for the first time... I felt really bad for the people still using windows..
Tried to fix a dll problem in her system and still no idea how to fix that shit...
Great job Microsoft...11
For those of you who want something comparable to the full Dark themes people have used on Linux for years here's a high contrast windows theme that doesn't look like garbage. I'm absolutely in love with it and will never go back. It's my favorite theme since the Windows classic theme. Also it's just a theme profile, so no worries about modding files or installing some malware infested theme manager.
Figuring out how to install Ruby on windows, is this real life? Or is this just fantasy, caught in a landslide? No escape from reality.3
New customer calling me to change all admin password on all server and Nas and some router/wifi ap for an unknown reason.
Customer: I have so many windows servers and nas'es...
Me arriving on site: just one qnap Nas... no windows server. 👍🏻🦄
Because my new computer has had no internet connection yet, windows couldn't install drivers to display any resolution above 1024x768.
That looks silly on my 1920x1200 screen.5
I once used some Windows theme hack in Windows 7 to be able to get a dark background in Explorer.
As a side-effect, Microsoft Word shows me the same dark background as well for its documents even though I didn't tell it to. I didn't mind, though...
But now the fun part: When I wanted to print out the document, it prints with that same dark background... seriously, is this shit hardcoded in?! No wonder you couldn't get a proper dark theme with Windows 7!
(I hope Windows 10 full dark theme won't have this weird issue!)3
I hate Windows.
It says, that there is no chrome.exe instacne, but there is one which is in a dead state and I can't start chrome...4
Ha! I remember now why I picked windows over ubuntu as environment for developing, I can install simultaneously apps in Windows meanwhile in Ubuntu cannot because something gets locked! And FFS the drivers! And also there's no simple way to do simple things like install and get a desktop icon without having to touch some scripts! I mean WTF!10
So I want to boot to no-failure mode on windows 10 to reinstall my video driver...
Start menu > Settings > Security and Update > Restore > Advanced start > Reboot now > Fix > Advanced settings > Settings (yes settings submenu after advanced settings one) > Reboot (total: 9 clicks)
Computer: Press F4 to boot to no failure mode
Me: *Press F4*
Me: *Waits 5 seconds*
Me: *Press F4*
Me: *Is confused*
Me: *Looks at keyboard*
Keyboard: *Is not powered*
FUCK YOU MICROSOFT !!!
*Reboot to normal mode...*
Win+R "msconfig" > Boot > Minimal > "Would you like to reboot your computer now" > Yes
*Reboot to no-failure mode*
EAT THAT PIECE OF SHIT !5
How to install windows, when there is no network boot support, no USB and you are on Linux?
I did it through vmware, just ran using the current hdd.2
Thought I'd give Windows a try from that rant: https://devrant.com/rants/2002967/...
Typical windows, no biggie...1
Yesterday: Enjoying my VFIO machine running on Ubuntu. Windows nastiness confined to a VM, full performance graphics. Heaven.
Today: Take a system update. Systemd hanging on boot. No console output because systemd helpfully prevents all that from showing. AARGH!1
Hey fellas, I have a question about Windows and Linux.
I love Ubuntu on my Laptop and since gaming is no prio at this time I'd like to install Linux on my Rig.
I want to install Linux on a separate drive and unplug my Windows drive so Linux can boot alone without selection at Bootmanager.
However, I'd like the possibility that Bootmanager will let me choose if I plug the Windows drive back in (just in case I'm really in need of Windows).
Is it possible?5
Nothing prepares you for Windows deciding your program as a virus for all your thousands of users and having no idea why.
It wasn’t virus related at all. It needed a new signing with an updated certificate. Did the error say anything like that? Hell no .
How the heck does nvram magically forget your boot entries while your system is up...
Worst reboot of windows I've experienced in a long time, ugh.
The boot/*.efi files are still present but no entries in the menu...
I feel like crying because I couldn't configure ERPNext on windows (Virtual Box). Damn thing showed this error "Already Registered, There were problems" and redirect me to homepage.
Hate this when there are no error codes or no proper documentation.
Tried every possible solution in past 4~5 hours. I'll sleep3
I mistakenly denied while installing virtualbox's driver install dialogue which was set to remember settings, now no option to clear fcking INF cache in windows 10.
Customer: "no obligation quote: upgrading 20 pc from ME to XP."
Sales dept.: "what? Lol?" *incredibly expensive ME to Windows 10 upgrade service quote*
So I use 4 differents setups in my life nowadays
My main PC at my home, which is on Windows 7
My PC at work, which is on Windows 8.1
My Cloud PC for gaming and video editing, on Windows 10
My travelling PC, which is on Ubuntu.
The Ubuntu, it's okay, no problem. But trust me, that's a real pain in the ass to switch from one OS to another.4
You know why there is no sharp, non-blurry weirdass image of these Windows Update screens? Cus they actually don't take very long and in your shaking senseless windows hate you gotta pull up the camera asap to get a picture of it, after you missed it last time.3
So, I recently switched from a windows laptop (XPS 13) to a macbook pro and my friend has been bugging me about whether I'll ever go back. He is a wannabe frontend developer and wants a windows laptop. No matter what I tell him, he seems to have tunnel vision. What are your thoughts on this? And what is your personal experience with Windows vs Apple for development?
(Pls don't kill me, it's my first post on devrant, thnx)16
That Moment when you struggle to get your Webpack config running on Windows, while it's works perfectly on linux.
And after hours of asking Google for help, which brings you no step further, it suddenly starts working. WTF??3
never run yaourt -Syu --aur without checking the upgrade list.
reboot-> system doesn't boot -> F**k
reboot (runlevel 3)
discover that nvidia-beta and nvidia-utils mismatch version.
fix it editing pkgbuild of nvidia-beta to install lastest version.
Results: succesfully wasted 25minutes.4
Of course another one of my non Apple computers bit the dust for absolutely no other reason than time.
Sigh...this is why I prefer to keep my windows computers on the desktop level, custom level.
Fucking windows crapped out on me. I'd entirely removed Ubuntu from my main of so I could game more and then Windows decides to just fucking die. No recovery possible. No repairing. No CMD. Stuck in an endless "attempting to repair loop".
Please, Windows. I love playing games and your software share is better but this whole bullshit of not letting me access stuff or fix errors is just such a ballache.
LET ME FIX MY SHIT!2
Why is there no easier way to write an installer for windows app with WiX Toolset than writing everything myself in XML? Wtf!?2
Why tf is there no option for opening new windows as a modal dialog in asp.net from code behind. Tired of that shit.2
So I was in the train station today. And the time table for the trains wasn't working. I also need to mention the fact that it displayed a "Your program is no responding" window. A very special window. A Windows Server 2008 kind of window. No wonder they're never on time.1
Why can't windows just leave my fucking scrolling settings alone when I update.... And no, I don't want to use onedrive. Ever.
Witchcraft is what windows update is. Turned my C:\ drive partition to RAW during an upgrade. I had to start over, no files...nothing. I was shaved bald. It was a sad night.
Today is one of those days where I realize there are hundreds of free APIs and tools to make something amazing and revolutionary, but you can't think of anything that isn't already done or is too advanced for an indie developer. Seriously, I watched Microsoft's Connect event keynotes and demos for these easy and amazing structures, but not a single app idea comes to mind. 😐
If I'm going to make a profit and a good resume, somethings needs to happen.
Windows store is so scuffed lul, I wanted to play sea of thieves so I downloaded the game on the Windows store since it is the only place you can get it for PC. But when I go to install it windows says "error, sea of thieves could not be downloaded at this time try again later" so I try again and again then finally I turn to the sea of thieves Reddit for some help and it turns out a lot of people have had the same issue with the exact same error code! But you will never guess what the solution is no no go ahead guess... You have to click the retry install button again and as soon as you press it YOU HAVE TO RESTART YOUR SYSTEM... WELL DONE WINDOWS YOU HAVE WON THE AWARD FOR THE MOST SCUFFED SOFTWARE STORE!
I could work from home sometimes, the coworkers would be cool but focused, new tech would be encouraged and pms would defend devs against crappy clients, oh and no windows allowed, yeah I dont like sunlight (like linus house)
It seems like now I can ssh into a Windows machine and use the glorious cmd!
- no (gnu/)linux user2
Windows 10 you piece of shit, no sound again in my headphones, tried everything, reinstalling drivers, headphones work perfectly in other devices or through my docking station4
What are you doing today?
Oh just rererereinstalling windows. Not even a little upset. Not like I'm in the middle of a *swearword* boot camp. Not like I'm supposed to be coding a conservative 8-10 hours a day. Nbd. This is my favorite way to spend time.1
npm you dank pile of shit!
After updating npm I get "Maximum call stack size exceeded" when I use npm install --no-bin-links as usual.
After searching a solution for this shit it seams like the npm devs fucked around with the --no-bin-links option, since this nasty error message vanishes if one downgrade npm.
These goddamn assholes.
Keep your filthy fingers off this option, since it is essentially for windows devs!11
I spent the whole day of yesterday trying to install the windows anniversary update after a clean Windows installation. Every time i tried to update it would go through 30% completion and then... BSOD, claiming that i didnt had a boot device. WUT? Anyway, after 5h of research and no success, i created a bootable usb installer and tried to install Windows 10 Education (which is my license). After the 1st restart... Error: Windows could not complete the installation. OH GOD WHY ME? After another hour i figured it out. Somehow i needed to install the version Windows Home and after the installation update to Student. DAMN WHAT A DAY...2
No I love them all equally... 😂😂😂😂 ... Ok they are mostly all shit , with security holes, features that don't exist but should, terrible docs .... The worst ones , mainly by Microsoft ie, windows 10 updates , windows servers.... But apple ... Fuck them ... Google .... Manipulating barstards ....
There is good software just you usually have to go through the shit to get them, I mean people normally use ie through lack of knowledge , so educate!
Wasted 8 hours today trying to convince Windows to boot.
Yesterday I deleted two unused partitions. Today no OS booted up. Guess what, diskpart (think parted for Windows) reindexes GPT partitions on any modification. So when I deleted partition #1, my EFI System Partition, previously #2, became #1. But UEFI was still trying to boot from partition #2.
Linux booted after recreating UEFI boot entry. 1 minute job, no tools required. Windows, though... Bootrec /rebuildbcd failed, bcdedit failed, recreating ESP from scratch failed spectacularly. Finally I made a clean install just to get proper ESP and restored OS from backup.
Dammit, Windows. Why do you have to make things that hard.5
just had a bluescreen in win 10 killing my newest project and reducing it to ashes😡
for no reason
not even an error code
fuck windows and its update policies. my laptop is way slower and more instable since the new fall update. it killed some software i had to reinstall and ms changed the options for advertisement again. ive had enough of windows
im finally switching over to Linux and im going to bann win 10 on a vm
Curse windows nested folder path length and filename limit...can create it no problem but try to move or rename and the path is too long...
Even Plop Manager won't let me boot from USB. I have no CDROM with enough space to get.... Linux mint. I am stuck with Windows. Happy holidays !1
So I was installing ubuntu alongside windows in dual boot.
The installer had some problems while partitioning the disk, so I did it manually using GParted. Then the installer had some problems while installing GRUB.
Now I got to know that my windows partition has been corrupted and ubuntu isn't installing.
My fully functional laptop is now reduced to metal crap with no OS being able to boot. Fuck Ubunu. Fuck Linux. -_-4
You may find his funny, bt do answer it honestly, as a Unity dev,I have been using windows for past 3 years cause I have no option,now my question is
WHY SHOULD I USE UBUNTU ?
Plz state the benefits over windows.

I just made the switch from Windows to MacOS.
After a couple of days working i couldnt believe how efficent ive become!
Even though i am pissed that there is no SD-Card reader.1
Just finished upgrading my company to windows 10 and latest Mac OS. The company opened a new bank account and the required hardware works ONLY on Windows 7 and no virtual machines...
(first day at Command line)
yes :) no destination..because Windows user algorithm
first ctrl+c then ctrl+v
took 2 hrs to figure out what's wrong
Spent more time than I am willing to admit debugging a Windows service, had a space between the ; and the next path on the %PATH% environmental variable. Powershell called the executable with no problem.
Windows updates is a huge bitch.
Gotta do some tests on a code, it's already past 5 pm, bit in a rush. But windows updates said no.
Huge fuck you!4
I blame developers for Windows epidemic. If no one develop for windows, there will be no software for that shit, and there for, there will be no user for that shit.11
Windows Remote Desktop Connection for ALL of our VMs. No VPNs whatsoever. If an employee wants to connect to work from home, we have to set up RDP on their PC. 😐🔫4
Well the one reason I still had windows on my PC seems no longer relevant as Windows BSOD's everytime I try gaming so...
Goodbye windows. I knew thee well...5
Desperately waiting to get a new Mac air so I can stop using this ancient windows PC. "Microsoft Windows - This application stopped working. Do you want to close it?" honestly *eye roll*^∞
I guess they fixed it now but who else grew tired of Windows 10 repeatedly asking you to make Edge your default browser every few days after you've already told it NO for the nth time...5
Hm.... it looks like i need to upgrade to the Cloud and maybe UWP/Electron.... as desktop-only apps (WPF) and the desktop itself will soon be no more...
Daughters fancy new insulin pump:
Rant 1 - works with Safari and IE, no Chrome support - that takes some skills
Rant 2 - Wife's laptop is Windows 10 - sync website identifies the operating system as "Windows NT" (unless a typo and they meant Windows TeN)
Rant 3 - syncing data - "next" button wants you to re-set up the device (from scratch) - "finish" button (on the same screen) actually syncs the data - did they do an UX training?1
Office 365 sucks if you want to connect a 3rd party service to your Windows Outlook. Will not read my calendar or let me sync unless I move everything to Outlook.com. No way I'm doing that.2
Currently the only good tooling for c# is on windows. Things are looking optimistic with .net core, but it's no where close to what's available on windows.2
Microsoft ends support for Windows 7
Support for Windows 7 ended this week which means that security or software updates will no longer be provided by Microsoft.
Windows 7 will continue to run however it will be more vulnerable to viruses and malware. The best way to remain secure is to use the latest operating system available.
Microsoft have a dedicated webpage for user questions, next steps and detailed advice. 👇
Yet another Windows 10 rant:
Since hibernation is broken (just locks the screen), I put my computer to sleep and went to bed. After a few minutes, IT STARTS UP.
So I disable hybrid sleep, wake timers, Update, etc. Same thing.
I try again... This time, it starts up too, but DOESN'T EVEN RESTORE!!
And this is a month-old install with latest update and no fishy drivers.
Windows really does hate me.2
The no of times you type exit when you're inside a tmux inside ssh inside bash inside command prompt inside windows is too damn high.
Windows o is almost dying and it already has a strong candidate for its replacement, which of course is Android.
2 minutes waiting for apps to show up in the launcher, no clue what's causing these slowdowns6
i compiled an app on mingw on linux, for windows using qt4, when trying to run it on windows it crashes with no understandable error, i installed wine and tried to run it there, got a proper error message, it was missing dlls
before someone tells me, i know i need a debugger, I'm just hello worlding around to check that i have all headers and libs in place on both linux native and mingw
I'm planning to buy Dell XPS 15" latest model in the near future and will do a triple boot: windows, Ubuntu and Hackintosh. I hope that is possible.
Also I hope the latest 2018 15" macbook pro will have no touch bar, no butterfly keyboard, no dongle life. But that's just a fantasy so I'm excited for Dell XPS
Ok, so I watched Glass just now (yea) and as far as I can tell NO ONE uses Windows in the movie - only Linux and Mac. So:
1. Is it some kind of sick "glass but no windows" joke?
2. I couldn't find what distros they use but I think it's some Debian-based MacOS-skinned system for Joseph Dunn's computer and some Arch-looking system for the control room. The laptop for in the opening scene probably uses some Windows-looking atrocity but I can't say exactly what it is (might as well be a MacBook, judging from the keyboard). Can anyone with a sharp eye confirm this?4
I am actually programming in C# and i learned programming with this language, but my problem is that visual c# have mandy dependencies and i need a language which run on a windows 7 as on a windows 10 machine but with no dependencies to any DotNet-Framework oder any special DLL's is there a language for this?13
Now the problem arises on how to remote control a linux machine with the i3 window manager. (With gui)
Teamviewer sends the windows key as the alt key and now no shortcuts work ...2
was submitting college assignment minutes before the deadline, opened laptop and boom!
"Your PC will restart several times during windows update 37% complete"
guess what Windows is not the answer, it is the question "NO" is the answer.
Only in Windows does turning the power off on my monitor mean to make it my primary monitor and show login screen there. I swear they'll never get this shit right.
I'm forced to turn it on/off so windows can figure out what kind of signal to send it.
Partially blame my questionable hdmi switch. No issues with MacOS and Linux though.
I love linux because i dont have to forced to do frickin update like windows did.
Because i have an experience after update linux mint i cant even start the main GUI program. After boot only show blank console. It seem linux update broke the compatibility between my graphics card.
At least now i dont have to update because thats an option. The output of update is not different than windows.there is a chance you broke your OS.
But the struggle is when i need to install new app in linux. Sometimes need more than hour to find out why it doesnt work from the first time.
Any help here?
So this start from the office. In the office i usually use low spec laptop that work slowly. Then i found this IDE called rapidclipse. Its very promising with GUI builder and can build cross platform mobile app using only java built on top vaadin framework.
When i use it on low spec laptop hackintosh at office it work well although it take more time than other kind of eclipse and i dont need to install any kind of app again, just download-install-create new project-run on tomcat-work well.
Then i go to home to try this new tool , IMO my low spec PC still have more power to run something than old hackintosh. Because usually i use android studio with no problem. In the old hackintosh it went too long to build gradle only.
Then i install rapidclipse, then run desktop shortcut. Then it said i need to install correct java to use correct JavaFX.
After search on SO they said i must install jdk from oracle.
Ok so i got openjdk in my linux.wtf what is the different idk but dont have time to find out.
I install jdk from oracle.
Than finally can open the rapidclipse.
Wow , this gonna be fun.
Then create new project. Just a new project.
So im waiting. I see the progress at 10%. But still no increment on that.
I switch to other app for several minutes.
Then when switched back th app still at 10% and now is at no responding state. So i force close.
After that open rapidclipse again.
The previous new project can be opened. Yay, i think.
But so many error there. Omg.
So i create new project again.
But, but, i just repeated the first error then close again then try it again for several time. But still same output.
After an hour, i give up.
But still, why , just why it work like this. No error or whatsoever.
Back later i have a problem like this on different app.
I have troubles running docker and daemon on ubuntu linux cli installed on windows 10, tried to solve all possible mistakes but no result. Windows is a bullshit, Ubuntu linux cli for windows is not fully fledged.8
I got a new babe today, Lenovo Yoga 550, i7, 256 SSD...hw do u advice I utilize.. should i partition and have windows OS and my sweet Ubuntu & Arch linux(s) on d base or just vm them on windows..cuz honestly if not for few wares, i hv no business with windows..pls advice.3
Win7 Task manager: 7 slack.exe processes running after shutting down app. Force closes 1 process, revives itself. 16 chrome.exe processes running after closing chrome. 8 node.exe running when no more node apps running.. Jesus christ, clean up after yourself Windows.. No wonder virtual box complained about not enough memory to run Windows 10 image because I have to test my web app on Edge browser..1
It's funny that I still somehow think that windows can do anything but crash itself at this point, so I'm playing an fps, and get an error message that complains about driver failure, so I go to device manager and try to update nvidia drivers, windows as always says that my driver is the newest available, so I check the nvidia website, newest version released literally last Tuesday so I think to check device manager again, date of nvidia newest driver: 05/03/2019, date of windows' "newest" driver's install: 13/08/2018... glad to know that windows keeps my computer up to date.1
Windows update been 27% done for a veery long tim... Ah... Now it was don... No, just restarted... 30% now... Hrmf... Not just annoying, it taunts me as well!
