  1. when Aero Glass starts it'll iirc open a windows to tell you the machine ID, otherwise, check the logs.
  2. simple: microsoft can see when people are writing malware and do something against them :-P
  3. talking about hilarious junk, I dont even want to remember how many failed attempts the 2018-01 update had before I said "screw it" and axed the update service. i really need to install win8 again on my laptop.
  4. well it certainly wouldnt make the updates faster if they would make everything with a new image and so on. small patches that ideally dont even need a reboot are the best, especially for security, because users who dont want to reboot still can get the update, although while the upgrade system may be annoying it does have its merits, especially considering that you dont need to DL a metric f-ton of patches just because you havent touched the PC in a few months but just get the image and run the upgrade, also you wont have all the patches lying around so you could potentially save space (well if MS would make a lot of their apps removable it would be even better.
  5. well generally speaking all the big build updates are essentially upgrade installation (in the same way of win7->10 upgrade) which are basically the novemberupdate aka 1511, the annoversary update 1607 or so, the creators Update aka 1703 and the Fall Creators Update (1709 iirc) and obviously all those that will be coming about every half year.
  6. honestly with the control panel I prefer the old style as well since it makes it easier to find stuff for me since I know where what is and I dont need or want the extra step of going through the categories. also for example the mouse setting is big and easy to see in the normal icon sorting, but when going into the categories it became in the category hardware and sound a small text link below printers and devices, easy to miss especially since you dont expect it to be a sub link because they are normally more for parts of the list item. The Device manager is in the same position. also where you you check for the keyboard, probably also hardware, but guess what, no it's not even in there
  7. well the point of him is to say that his upgrading is gone WTF. and well I think it's certainly intresting reading all the fails of w10.
  8. well yeah I know win2k pretty much as NT because it always said something as "based on NT" or whatever on the school PCs. and this doesnt change that you REALLY shouldnt use these to go into the web. you aint getting an antivirus anywhere, and the browser is also old as f. I mean IE6 on XP isnt even doing TLS1.0, and SSL3 is definitely off the list coz the internet has something against dogs (/s) although it wouldnt even surprise me if win2k would even fly without SSL3 and only use SSL2, but apparently that is like an ocean, very easy to drown in, unless you have something to keep yourself up with (which usually isnt the case in the ocean) well jokes about the naming of security problems aside, anyone with an IQ above room temperature (just to be sure, I mean in Celsius) should see that it isnt wise to use win2k or even older on the internet.
  9. but WTF Windows NT users now surfing in the web?
  10. what about 7? aside from the fact that it has an input method for tablets I dont remember much tablet specific there.
  11. the machine ID is something it will tell you when you start your PC up or you can also check it in the log file.
  12. well the donation itself is valid. but you need to get a new key file. usually you have depending on how much you donated, multiple slots to you so it's even less of a hassle. the only thing you have to remind is that when you deactivate your old slot, you can npot use that slot for 30 days.
  13. well the UAC can be annoying, but it can also be helpful. but when you dont get ALL your rights after confirming the UAC prompt, then it's junk. in linux it's more or less the same with sudo. unless you say "do it as admin" the application won't get admin (except you are logged in as root, which is basically the same as the system administrator account in windows) in XP when just using the PC in a single user way you wouldnt even notice an application wants admin, which can raise some red flags if you even remotely know what you are doing.
  14. well at least I use an aero style from deviantart Aero Glass 8 for Win 8/8.1 Final plus UxStyle http://uxstyle.com/builds/UxStyle_sep23_x86_x64_possibly_bugged.zip and to top it off, of course Aero Glass by bigmuscle here. http://glass8.eu/ that's basically my style set, and then I use things like classic shell to get the start menu back, http://www.classicshell.net/ modern mix for the few occasions I want to try apps https://www.stardock.com/products/modernmix/ and some other stuff I have to look up.
  15. well honestly some small features (e.g. win+x and win+screenshot-button) make w8.1 really nice to use as soon as you axed things like metro into oblivion.
