Search - "winblows"
An engineer was working on a windows server. Needed to partition something so typed 'part' in the windows search thingy (windows 10).
Few results found:
Part time working
Engineer: Jesus fucking Christ I just want the FUCKING partitioner, windows what the actual fuck.26
I'm really tired of the comments like "Winblows" or "iShit" or "MicroShit."
Like cool. You don't like a company's product. Congratulations! You're entitled to your own opinion. But try to be less obnoxious it about it please and thanks!19
It would be pretty fucking cool if you listed what information is needed in the fields you fucking cock sucker.10
Unpopular opinion, but I cringe every time someone writes Winblows, Micro$oft, or anything like that35
TLDR: In defense of Powershell - the rant:
I don’t get the Powershell hate.
You don’t hate a screwdriver for not being able to turn a nut, you just *don’t use a screwdriver to turn a nut*
Once you recognize what the tool is good for and you don’t try to use it like Bash, it’s wildly powerful, and satisfying to use in a way Cmd.exe never was.
Cygwin or a Linux Subsystem can only go so far on a Windows computer. You’re dealing with two fundamentally different OS architectures. It makes sense you’d need different tools.
And like it or not, Microsoft owns the non-tech-user desktop , corners the non-tech server business market, and Active Directory is THE tool for managing Windows desktops on a large scale - So Wanblows is not going away anytime soon.
Automation without some weird ass sysVol batch login script is finally possible. Anyone who knows .Net classes can leverage their methods from directly within Powershell. Remote management of headless Windows servers is now a reality. If you have an Office 365 Exchange server you can literally Powershell remote to it for management, just like your favorite cloud hosted Linux distribution.
No one said Windows is a better OS, but an object based shell on an object based OS *makes sense*. It’s useful for its environment. Let it be.11
So my local job center had me convert my LaTeX CV into Word format, as apparently PDF is to techy for them.8
Average linux developer: writes completely fast, optimized code that compiles the first time all via the terminal. He doesn't care.
Also average linux developer: decides to call it Winblows instead of Windows in an attempt to get more people to use linux. He feels like a genius.25
When will Linux shall triumph over the desktop market?
I hate to see games and software being developed only for Winblows and MacPrison.
Why don't some company make a normie-friendly distro and heavily support it, same as Google did with Android, but for desktops?11
I fucking hate the Safari browser to death.
This piece of disk space waste is 50% of the reason why I have to spend hours to find out what the fuck is incorrectly displaying or not working on W.I.P. websites.
The other 50% is Edge, IE <=11 and Firefucks.
Just for piss smelling Safari, I need to either run a VM with Crapple OS X for debugging or borrow a Crapbook from $randomPerson.
Is it fucking not possible to compile Safari blowser to run on Linux or Winblows?
Eventhough I'm disgusted about Google and its privacy and data mining policies, Chrome is the most decent browser there is on the whole digital world. It only happens extremely rarely that something is not working/displaying as expected during development.
Most browser developers seem to be useless pubes eaters and like to shower with curd soap.13
You know what's worse than fixing websites in IE?
Fixing websites in safari for winblows.
What the fuck?
My Witcher 3 save state has vanished.
I didn't delete that!
What the actual fuck?
All I want for Christmas is.... for Windows 10 search bar to respond and work in a reasonable amount of time and not suck so much.3
Fuck android studio updates, fuck OpenGL libraries, fuck nvidia graphics on Linux, fuck it all to hell.
These bullshit updates keep breaking stuff in apps, and then the emulator itself gets broken somehow, then I need to run a bullshit shell script I found on some esoteric Arch Linux forum to symlink OpenGL .so libraries on my Linux machine every time I update because fucking OpenGL and nvidia crappy drivers on Linux, which also broke my xrandr configs and segfaulted the xfce4-display app.
Seriously that's horseshit. Linux will never ever ever break through the glass ceiling and become idiot-proof non-tech user friendly like the botnets Winblows and macPrison.7
Windows asks to update. I say no and 10min later i get this casual update continuing.
Glad i have a say in life8
Ever since I installed Winblows 10 Anniversary edition, my laptop is slower to boot and bluescreens once a week.
Windows: if your system is fast and reliable, don't worry, we'll fix that for you.4
There’s no reason to keep using Windows. Don’t buy games that don’t offer a Linux version. Don’t take jobs that require you use Windows. Eventually as people refuse, businesses will follow or lose out 😁😁😁25
Anyone else stuck with Winblows for the moment and want a killer minimal wallpaper? I made this yesterday and I'm pretty happy with it.
Best: completely switching to (void)-Linux and leaving winblows behind me in the dirt.
Worst: everything else1
FUCK FUCK FUCK Windows share feature
just fuck it !
and fuck the people who made it!!!44
ok calm mode on
I had to copy a 30 gb file from my computer to my sister's one, and since the largest pendrive I have is 8gb, and I'm just lazy to split the file into parts, I thought it would be a great idea to copy it over LAN. (tldr: it's not)
Right click on file and share it with everyone = fail
Enable network discovery in sharing settings = still fail
Ohh, right, I just forgot it, disable firewall, it usually solves everything = still fail (2)
Google the problem and try every possible solution = still fking fail
Ok, when last time I had the same problem, I made a homegroup and it worked.
Let's enable it on my Win10 = it's missing
After some googling: "We removed the home group feature from Windows 10, because why not and we would be fired if the change log was empty."
Ok, fuck it.
Download a portable FTP server.
Create an account.
OMG. This weekend, there is Rainbow Six Siege free to play on Steam. I have a desktop PC, but I can't get it to work. Tried Ubi support, but they give shit. So...I was hoping, I could finally try this crap game on my laptop. And here we go...
Normally, I use Linux. Only Linux, because Windows 10 on my laptop is extremely fucking painful. I knew it's going to be torture to install that game on it, but whatever.
OK, firstly, I was surprised, that Windows booted in just about 1 minute. I was like wtf just happened. Everything seemed to be fine and working. I downloaded uPlay, installed it and tried to install the game. Just to be clear, this rant is written from Linux again. And why?
Because FUCKING WINBLOWS desides to FUCKING UPDATE WIFI DRIVERS. 1 minute - internet works, second fucking minute - WIFI IS FUCKING DOWN. Thanks fucking pussy Gates. I really like you. And use this crap daily. Holy shit I would die...2
I sometimes forget windows is absolute shit. Then I get to work with one and remember. Specially since microshit has actually banned my email (because I didn't give it my mew phone number it's sulking like a creepy stalker) and so I can't even properly log the fuck in into a machine I was using a few years back. 😐
If someone makes a windows rip off that could properly deal with .exe files, count me a customer. (in future tho. I haven't got money for shit rn)8
Have a Dell desktop that was running Windows 11. Someone tried to revert to Windows 10. Now it will not even post. Anybody experience something this drastic?
I suspect it tried to do some kind of misguided firmware update in the process.14
Game sound coming from speakers and system sound coming from headphones , another reason why winblows , headphones are set as default audio output device. Winblows !!!!!3
Last night i sat down at 6pm to free up some disk space on /boot, because i didnt properly size it months ago on first installation.
5:20am i close my laptop with a fresh install, and no more WinBlows.
Didnt set out to do it, but Im not mad that it happened.
To the people who so blindly hate apple: Name my other choices...
Winblows is a bloated system with no real package manager, i can't stop their endless updates, it gets viruses so easily, that you have to install an antivirus, and i hate their flat design, and linux is for haX0r kids who wanna look cool, it's just not practical for personal use.11
Yes Microsoft I clearly want a fucking Korean Windows iso after entering in my English product key from England on a page written in English. Absolute fucking garbage just microshaft continuing to force us onto winblows 104
Why does WinBlows have to take an eternity to boot back up after an update !?
Does anyone here know an article or something detailing how to debloat this fkin OS? I just wanna play Steam games. Everything else is almost extra.16
I have a Windows 10 installation on my laptop...
A few weeks back my father bought an SSD for his Lenovo ThinkPad T500. Problem was - I couldn't install Windows on that laptop due to legacy BIOS (the T500 is old but gold). My solution was that I put the SSD into my eSATA portable HDD / SSD rack, and I installed Windows to the SSD on my laptop. It worked, but now, when I boot up my laptop it always asks which Windows do I want to boot up (only one Windows is present - the other throws an error). I switched the defaults, and now it boots up fine, but that choice really slows down my usually fast SSD boot (it has a 10 second timer before automatically chosing the default option).
How can I reconfigure it?
Or is it only possible by a clean install?4
Found the Intelligence windows uses for update
if user.working() == True:
windows should be renamed to winblows2
For those who keep complaining about winblows and microshit, just know that windows is highly customizable (registry).
Look here for some tips: https://howtogeek.com/howto/37920/...
It's for win 7 but many should still work for win 104
A single fucking NuGet package is missing in release mode. That’s the only goddamn explanation I have and it makes no sense. Why the FUCK does ACR.UserDialogs only get compiled in Debug mode?!
God I fucking HATE UWP.1
So I decided to install windows 10 and I'll use it for quite some time. I want to make it as usable as possible.
So, does any of you know how to permanently remove all those shit apps that pop up in my start menu?
And how to remove Cortana and Edge?
I'll be thankful for any help D:1
