          When Bill Gates walks into the office, do you bend over or do you get on your knees?

          Paraphrased from the Windows 10 wikipedia article,

          At the 2015 Ignite conference, Microsoft employee Jerry Nixon stated that Windows 10 would be the "last version of Windows", a statement reflecting the company's intent to apply the software as a service business model to Windows, with new versions and updates to be released over an indefinite period.[56][57][58] In 2021, however, Microsoft announced that Windows 10 would be succeeded on compatible hardware by Windows 11–and that Windows 10 support will end on October 14, 2025, marking a departure from what had been dubbed "Windows as a service".

          Jerry Nixon not only wasn't in the systems division, let alone on the Windows team, and his comments at Ignite were immediately disavowed by MS management. He's was a "developer evangelist" - basically, an ad man. And when Windows 10 was RTM in July 2015, the EOL page said October 2025 - it never said anything else, Microsoft as a business never said anything else, and imagine being an autistic basement dweller who gets this fricking asshurt over these facts, and that your entire worldview is based on ignoring them.

          This is an object lesson in why you're worthless failures, and always will be.

      it's true, this is the explanation they gave for skipping windows 9

      if they aren't going to stick to the plan of copying OSX which I dont even think is called OSX anymore, but whatever -- if they're off script, they need to go back and release Windows 9 before continuing to 12.

      Alternatively they can make it a sub-version of windows 11, and call it Windows 9/11 or something like that.

    distros versions does not mean anything is really going to be noticeably different, just minor things here and there -- to get real change you typically need to start using different/new software and if you don't like it then you just don't use it

    And people do get outraged when an existing DE does major changes, e.g. forked gnome2.

    Easy, when Gnome 3 happened and people hated it, you had the option to use a Gnome 2 fork or just switch to a completely different DE altogether, when MS strays further away from the perfection that was XP's desktop, you're fricked, and the desktop is just one aspect of an OS, if you start listing under the hood systems it becomes worse

            i also am a C++ programmer (although i use the latest cutting edge version) and am starting to dabble in some ASM here an there (extended x86 and RDNA2 GPU ASM) and although windows does provide tools for that style of development they're much more of a pain in the ass to use
            even as part of a normal windows dev workflow depending on your dependencies you'll frequently have to use linux/unix projects either through WSL or MSYS2/mingw64

            i switched to linux full time after AMD's CUDA clone officially came out on windows and they revealed it'd be missing like half the libraries (and then after looking through the headers, was also missing a lot of the features)
            been very happy with it

            also frick msbuild, frick MSVC, and frick intellisense (why would you even use a third party clone of your own compiler as a code completion engine?)

    The difference is that LTS or stable distros, like RHEL, Debian, Ubuntu LTS, etc. essentially have zero bugs, even on release. Every new release of Windows is a complete fricking mess until they come out with the next major version - by which time, you're already being pushed hard to UPDOOOOT.

  19. 1 month ago

    Incremental updates are one thing. Revamping the whole thing is another. Also, there are options between rolling release, fast release and long term release between Linux distributions we can choose from according to our needs. And even the rolling release ones do not look different after each update unless we change something major.

    There is also the matter of hardware deprecation. Windows Vista got its reputation from its high requirements (above what Microsoft listed as minimum requirements, particularly RAM). Windows 10 was a resource hog with its many "features" that are only of interest to Microsoft, not the user. Windows 11 is notorious for axing processor support. Wonder what Windows 12 will force upon the user.

    For that matter, Debian still offers x86 32bit support.

    Linux distros don't change everything (Design, logic) and don't force you new super important functions(tm) down your throat. Usually it's just the same thing but with newer software.

    If you're getting an update for Linux, it's probably going to be something that you actually want/need, something that makes the OS better. If you're getting an update for Windows, you're not getting any new functionality or content, all it's doing is wasting your time. Win10 was supposed to be the final fricking Windows version for a reason, because their users don't like computers. They don't want new updates, they want a functional fricking OS so that they can play Candy Crush and jerk off.
