1. Use Windows 10 until it dies.
2. Download Windows 11.
3. Buy a $1,000 Mac

    I kid you not when I say I'm using a 2015 gaming laptop that my brother gave me. I literally cannot upgrade to Windows 11. Maybe I might give Linux a shot.

      >I literally cannot upgrade to Windows 11
      Explain.
      I got 11 (Enterprise, not the AIDS-riddled Pro version) to run decently on a god damned ASUS A52JR laptop from 2010.
      That thing has the first DX11 chip to exist (Radeon Mobility HD5470) and a 1st gen i5, and the only thing it needed was a slight RAM bump (from 4 to 8GB) and a SSD.

        is it smooth like windows 10?

          Yes. Again, go for Enterprise, not Pro. The Pro (and obviously Home as well) are far more bloated while Enterprise is almost on par with 10 IoT.

          Do note it'll be a bit sluggish a bit until you're done installing the drivers for everything. After that it's smooth sailing, and I have ran it on quite a lot of 1st and 2nd gen Core laptops with no issues.

          btw, use Rufus to make the USB drive. IIRC it'll specifically ask you if you want to remove the stupid CPU, TPM and all the stupid checks implemented by MS.

          never gonna happen. windows 12 is just going to be windows 11 with more AI and copilot shit. the settings app won't be fixed, the taskbar will still be garbage, everything will still have dark patterns designed to make you think you need their cloud garbage. the only escape is linux. or mac if you like paying $600 for 8gb of ram modules or 256gb of nand flash.

        First gen Core i processors utilized triple channel RAM. Was this not the case for laptops?

          Nope. HM55 (and PM55) laptops were standard dual-channel, similar to the desktop H55/P55.

        it isn't a matter of processing power. i still use my original pc that i built when i was 16. windows 11 will not install on any motherboard without a tpm chip on board.

      I wish I could believe that.
      Once 70% of Windows users are on Windows 11, governments will know that they can start enforcing a TPM requirement in all devices that access the internet.
      Online games are already using Remote Attestation to check that users haven't installed kernel level cheats.
      For national security reasons, ISPs will be required to use the same technology to check that all their customers are using OSes that are up to date and receiving security support.
      If you're lucky, your government will pay for you to use a Windows 11 virtual machine hosted in the cloud, as part of a transition period during which you will be expected to buy a compliant machine.

        This post genuinely shook me. We might very well head towards that reality. Wouldn't that mean an end to Linux as well? I might just quit nearly all my contact with the internet if that actually happens. Hopefully if such a dystopia occurs, enough people will move to alternative networks.

          Linux users would be corralled into a few "approved" distros which implement the same Remote Attestation protocol.
          You will have to run the stock kernel from those distros, and not be allowed to compile in any custom modules.
          This plan has all been laid out years ago by Lennart Poettering himself.

          >Everything should be cryptographically measured, so that remote attestation is supported for as much software shipped on the OS as possible.
          >Everything should be self-updating. Today we know that software is never bug-free, and thus requires a continuous update cycle. Not only the OS itself, but also any extensions, services and apps running on it.

            Of course that homosexual is part of the push for immutable distros.

            This is why Microsoft approached him, 13 years ago, to act as their sleeper agent in the Linux community.
            They needed someone who could push a single homogenized base system across all Linux distros, so that eventually it would be able to include this Remote Attestation protocol, as required by the intelligence services.

        XP and lower contain a bunch of easter eggs which can be considered bloat

        Was forced to use Win7 for 64 bit support. But I do use the "classic" theme so everything is still a grey box. It's so comfy.

    Use Win 10 until it dies then switch to Linux
    Tried to go Win 11 last year, it killed off my OS drive because I had to do some trickery with the non-working firewall, non-working antivirus, non-working sound, etc.

    Windows 10 dies when Chrome drops support for it. MS has no say in when their OSes become deprecated anymore.
