  1. Ultimately, I'm not going to use Windows 10 though. Or 11. Windows 8.1 will be the latest Windows OS I will ever use and support unless Microsoft absolutely gets their a** in gear. After 8.1 gets too old for modern systems, I will switch to MX Linux full-time and that will be that. Hell, MX is already dual-installed on my system and runs amazingly. The only reason why I haven't switched things over entirely is purely because of laziness and because I will always have a soft spot for old (8.1 or lower) Windows OSes.
  2. Even if he didn't think it was, that was on him. We did what he wanted. Doesn't justify completely abandoning a paid product just because we paid the price he asked. And again, I don't think anyone expected him to do this forever. We all told him to open-source it so he could completely forget about it and we could continue to be able to use the application long after the site shut down. Everyone could have come out with a win here. But no, he wouldn't do that. Instead, he chose the worst possible option because who the hell knows why.
  3. Doesn't really matter. BigMuscle set the price and we paid the price he asked. To support the project. But BigMuscle isn't properly supporting the project. Or really even supporting it at all. It's like if I paid you $3 for 4 candy bars, but you only gave me 1 candy bar. Doesn't matter how little I spent or not. We agreed on a price and you didn't fulfill your end of the bargain. That's called stealing.
  4. Out of curiosity, what programs do you use that don't run on Linux? The usual Adobe suspects or... ?
  5. Well, in any case, it should be cleaned up or replaced. Seems a little silly to just leave it as it is.
  6. Google has banned almost 600 apps for pushing “disruptive” ads! Did you know that? Also, in other fresh-off-the-press news, the next major Windows 10 update could bring big changes to Cortana. I wonder what those changes will be...
  7. Honestly, the more these programs try to artificially restrict themselves to 10, the more I'm going to be switching to Linux, not 10. Linux is getting very close to where it cannot be ignored any longer, and once that happens, these stupid developers are just going to have to get with the times and accept that userbase. Hell, the driver support for Linux alone is utterly fantastic. A massive far cry from the days of yore. If Microsoft continues being a dumbass with 10, then people will slowly but surely start losing their patience and switch to Linux. And once Linux gets a decent headstart with that, Microsoft is going to have a HUGE issue trying to pull them back, and I don't care how many additions to the "Windows Sub-system for Linux" they make. Windows used to be quality software worth the hefty pricetag, but Microsoft doesn't seem so concerned with such trivial matters as 'quality' and 'user needs' anymore.
  8. Why though? I don't wanna gang up on you here, and you don't owe us anything really, but it seems really weird to just refuse to do so.
  9. @halohalo If you can't/won't release the modded drivers, please provide a tutorial on how to modify the correct files. This goes much bigger than running drivers on a somewhat older Windows 10 build. Most notably, installing Windows 7's RTX 30xx drivers into Windows 8.1 is retardedly blocked by Nvidia and will instantly show the same damn error 43 if you force-install them. No, Nvidia can't be contacted about this.
  10. Probably not. Maybe with another program I don't know about. Classic Shell MAY have an option for this, but I can't check right now since I'm not at my desktop at the moment.
  11. Like, automatically pin in the All Programs folder or in Start screen main? EDIT: Found this: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows8_1-performance/how-do-i-automatically-pin-an-application/4f2cff6d-7fc4-4448-99e3-5143c61a4fe0
  12. Oops. Sorry for repeating that. Well, at this point, I would go to Nvidia's forum, but it's complete f****** trash. Like, holy hell, they aren't even cleaning up the garbage left by spambots. All in all, my efforts to get these damn drivers working has been a great big nothing burger, and I am getting thoroughly discouraged to try any further. With this, and that Hardware Unboxed fiasco, and the forcing of customers to make online accounts just to use GeForce Experience, and the annoying telemetry, and just the mere fact that they're listing a Windows 8 category for the 30 series and haven't ever bothered to change it... I really hope AMD catches up to Nvidia, because this is some absolute dogshit support. Hell, I bet the only reason they even have Windows 7 drivers at this point is because AMD still makes Windows 7 drivers. What a joke.
  13. I have a new theory regarding how to get the 30xx display drivers to install correctly on 8.1 (assuming correct installation is the problem). Extract the Windows 7 display driver as normal, but then go into the driver files, specifically NVIDIA/(whatever your driver version number is)/Win8_Win7_64/International/Display.Driver/ and then open nv_dispi.inf. If we look at this file, we see sections that list different Windows versions corresponding to 7, 8, and 8.1, but then we see this: [NVIDIA_Devices.NTamd64.6.3] ... %NVIDIA_DEV.2188% = Section185, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_2188 %NVIDIA_DEV.21C4% = Section185, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_21C4 And then we check under our [Strings] section to see what the hell these IDs even mean: [Strings] ... NVIDIA_DEV.2188 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650" NVIDIA_DEV.21C4 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER" NVIDIA_DEV.2204 = "NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090" NVIDIA_DEV.2206 = "NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080" NVIDIA_DEV.2484 = "NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070" NVIDIA_DEV.2486 = "NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti" And we confirm that underneath our Windows 8.1 section, the entire 30xx series is missing! So, this is my theory. We simply need to add these lines to the 6.3 section (or the 6.2 section if you're running Windows 8 vanilla): %NVIDIA_DEV.2204% = Section165, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_2204 %NVIDIA_DEV.2206% = Section165, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_2206 %NVIDIA_DEV.2484% = Section165, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_2484 %NVIDIA_DEV.2486% = Section165, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_2486 After this nonsense, just save the file and run the setup.exe in the parent directory as normal and see if it will finally install the damn drivers.
  14. People say there's a lot of telemetry but most of it's just regular Windows Update. Also, I'd be very surprised if 8.0 didn't have at least some of 8.1's telemetry. You can also quite easily bypass the stupid CPU block by installing wufuc onto Windows 8.1. And easier to tweak visually, that highly depends. I was personally able to make 8.1 look like both 7 and Vista.
