    So why don't I give a rat's tail about Win 11? :censored:

    I'm baffled how someone could actually be excited about a new WINDOWS release. It's like being excited to get a new strain of herpes.

    How to edit DNSAPI.dll in Windows 10 to remove hard-coded telemetry domains?

    If whitelisting is so trivial and Windows doesn't check the file integrity, it means that any malware can whitelist themselves using this dll very easily :)

    Looking for recomendations on a replacement headphone cable

    Get a cordial cable from a pro shop. They're cheap but robust. The so called high-end cables are 99% snake oil. It's funny how the entire music production pipeline is done with pro gear and then somehow magically a high-end power cord to an amp "improves" the sound quality by 1000 dollars worth...

    Why Microsoft Why?

    Say what? Mac gives you a selection of drives in a simpliest possible form to choose. It couldn't get easyer than that. You can easily even install and boot from USB, something Windows can't do. Same goes for linux.

    Why Microsoft Why?

    ADDS, IIS and Exchange are popular mostly with small busineses that aren't able to make informed decisions. And even though you "get to choose" the drive to install on, Windows will still place the boot sector to a drive of it's own choosing transparently to the user.

    Except Valve has announced that it will run the latest blockbuster games fluently.

    Win 11 pro's? con's? opinions?

    Not for a millisecond. I inherently distrust all things Microsoft. Except my Precision Pro 1 joystick. That thing is indestructable.

    Win 11 pro's? con's? opinions?

    Windows 10 was supposed to be the last windows. Shows just how much you can trust Microsoft.

    Why Microsoft Why?

    I have worked on server hardware but that's a decade or more ago. Back then there weren't embedded flash drives. Yes, you configure the raid naturally but having an OS install that doesn't let you choose what disk to use is just blatantly dumb. That means that in order to install the OS you'd...

    You're correct, my memory is failing.

    Windows 11 reveal coming June 24th

    Well, clicking a link might break their windows so that fear is not completely uncalled for.

    Need help installing AMD drivers

    Just a sidenote, the open source driver is what's recommended to use on AMD gpu's. The pro driver is meant for workstations and the open source driver works better for games generally.

    Upgrade from Mint 20.1 to 20.2 Uma ???

    Ubuntu has 6main choices for interface. Gnome, Mate, KDE, Cinnamon, XFCE, LXDE etc. so I really fail to understand what's your issue with the interface.

    Windows 11 reveal coming June 24th

    Adobe products have been proven to be more of a liability than anything else. If you look forward you will cut your dependency on that company.

    How to edit DNSAPI.dll in Windows 10 to remove hard-coded telemetry domains?

    It's a terminal emulator also in linux. The main thing is that it's built in and behaves like a proper terminal unlike PuTTY with it's messy GUI.

    How to edit DNSAPI.dll in Windows 10 to remove hard-coded telemetry domains?

    It's called 'Terminal' in OSX. Remember that OSX is just a fork of minix. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terminal_(macOS) Used to be bash but now OSX switched to zsh.

    How to edit DNSAPI.dll in Windows 10 to remove hard-coded telemetry domains?

    Heh, you only need PuTTY if you use Windows ;) Macs, linuxes and BSD:s have a proper terminal installed out-of-the-box.

    What exactly does Mint do that Ubuntu doesn't? Crashing more is the only thing that comes to mind.

    Need help installing AMD drivers

    You're supposed to switch the $DRIVER to the name of your actual driver to run the command. Of course you can assign the name to the variable $DRIVER also but that would make zero sense.

    How to edit DNSAPI.dll in Windows 10 to remove hard-coded telemetry domains?

    The far easyest way to get rid of the telemetry is to switch to using linux. Keep your Windows for games (which it's only good for) and live your daily life on linux.

    That's hilarious. Because you know, everyone likes pulling drives off their servers to install shit.

    Nuforce uDAC5 driver

    Hopefully that fixes your problem but exactly this sort of user behavior is the reason why so many Windows computers are infected. Installing a driver from an unknown source is about as risky as it gets. Only positive side is that IIRC Windows won't let you use unsigned drivers in a 64-bit...

    DRM has ruined Resident Evil Village on PC

    The right thing to do would be to release a DRM free release when support ends. It wouldn't cost much.

    DRM has ruined Resident Evil Village on PC

    That's why I don't trust any Windows computer. Different applications can modify the OS silently and permanently without the user even realizing what happens.

    Win 11 pro's? con's? opinions?

    Direct storage is another DX10. Overhype, too complicated to be fully benefited from and artificially limited to a certain Windows version. Most likely only a handful of games will support it for the coming couple of years. The amount of consumers with cutting edge hardware is too small to...

    Why Microsoft Why?

    The point is that the installer completely hides everything from the user. It's just a horrible design.

    Why Microsoft Why?

    No it was an installer error to not let the user decide which disk is used for install. Period.

    Why Microsoft Why?

    Quite ridiculous how antiquated the setup procedure still is. Like returning to Win95 times.

    Headphones - audio in game; knowing where your enemy is? (How does a USB Headset work to let you know where what you are hearing is in the gamespace?

    The biggest limitation to headphone listening is the mismatch between the audio direction and head direction. The brain relies on really small cues of micro head movements when determining the direction of sounds and if you turn your head without the sound moving logically with it, the brain...

    Are Games Smoother / More Responsive on Linux?

    Windows is never better. You taint your computer lol. Ok ok, I use Windows10 for gaming also - but I don't trust that machine for anything else than Steam / Origin games. I don't browse the internet or God forbid, do banking with it.

    Unmountable Flash Drive, CHS Mismatch

    Ah, you were using NTFS. NTFS-fuse / NTFS-3G are not totally reliable, they're more of a band-aid to help dealing with Windows. IIRC ntfs-fuse documentation recommended to avoid writing using it. Having said that I haven't had such problems personally so could it be possible that there's...
