  1. OP's not concerned about the economical effects, they care about PC prices and PC hardware, they had a another post within 10 minutes of this one asking if they would get the virus from parts made in China. If the question was "what effect is the virus going to have on the world economy and distribution of all products manufactured in china" then i wouldn't have an issue. I take issue with people (not just OP, because there has been a number of posts on this forum) that are immediately concerned about the virus because it might impact PC prices. EDIT: fuck it, i'm out, I'm not going to get into another argument about this Virus...
  2. it's not about hysteria, it's about basic human decency. If the response to a virus outbreak anywhere in the world is "muh PC prices" then i think your priorities are very much in the wrong order. I'm not telling OP to go over to China and solve the virus, i'm saying "don't be disrespectful to those suffering"
  3. ...seriously? There's a deadly virus spreading throughout China and filtering though to other countries, over a 1500 people have died in less than a month and almost 70,000 infected (probably more), and you're concerned about PC prices?
  4. same here, no issues. downloaded and installed last night
  5. I game on external hard drives
  6. The SpaceX Falcon 9 Heavy Not a Flamethrower
  7. Elon Musk’s Starlink plan approved for Australia I have been waiting for this news for a long time. As most people probably dont know, Australian internet speeds are terrible and no where near where a first world country should be . The NBN (national broadband network) has been plagued with issues and gone hugely over budget since it was first attempted to be rolled out. This could be the solution I really hope this gets rolled out, because it will then put real pressure on ISPs that they have not had any real competition for way too long. A complete refusal from multiple groups in Australia to do anything about the internet infastucture might now start taking note when they start to see people moving away from the ancient ADSL that is seen as "enough" by people who live in big cities with 100mbps speeds, when most of the country is paying big money for 25mbps if they are lucky. all the way down to 5mbps if they're unlucky, but still paying the same amount. and to shit existing satellite internet for those people that just get the middle finger https://www.news.com.au/technology/science/space/elon-musks-starlink-plan-approved-for-australia/news-story/d99545976931ea4bf4a5f394ec6e885d
  8. if price doesn't matter. as of right now 9900k is king. 9700k is right up there as well. Though the 10700k is going to steal the crown whenever that gets released
  9. Some windows 7 users are becoming as insufferable as Linux users


    thread/comment/discussion about Windows 10: *exists*


    User: "I have no input, but I just want everyone to know that I use Windows 7/Linux *smug*

      the most I do is *laughs in linux* comments when it is a real dumpster fire.

      using linux is the pc community equivalent of being gay, because you absolutely HAVE to exclaim your sexuality and your OS every time it’s opportune to do so

      I'm with will4623. I don't like to seek validation from peers in the tools I use but if I can use a stereotype against myself for the sake of spreading laughter I'll gladly act like a fool for a post or two.

  10. actual line speed? no. Resolving speed? depends.
  11. i know it's just a render....but where is the PSU?
  12. TheyDidn'tTellPeople at that point it doesn't matter what their reason is. No body is going to experience slow downs of their phone and think "my battery is getting old and they are slowing down my phone to save it". again, to drive the point home; They didn't tell people, so as far as i'm concerned, they did it with the intention that most people wouldn't know the real reason for the slowdown and spend money on a new phone.
  13. exactly my thought. every publisher is going to have their own streaming service, exactly like we have every movie studio having their own streaming service. and all of them will fail because people will just buy the games they want instead of having 10 subscriptions to game streaming services which all still are terrible experiences.
  14. certainly looks like it. it's like the windows version of chromeOS
  15. Blue. Just like my house. da ba dee da ba dye.
  16. Use what ever does want you want at what ever price your comfortable paying. Ignore brand always
  17. i'm literally doing what other linux users have told other people to do. just because you have been unlucky doesn't mean everyone has. it's a matter of the vocal minority. i'm also not saying these problems don't exist or that you didn't experience these issues. they don't exist for me and therefore are not an issue for me and therefore not a reason for me to ditch windows. Does this mean that I didn't have these problems because you didn't? no. You had issues with Windows that i don't. i had issues with Linux that you don't still speculation. if they are as unobtrusive as they are for me now, then i don't care. Linux is not for me, i'll be sticking with Windows.
  18. i doubt that, given how many people and industries use it, if there is a new OS, it will be updated to work with it. everything, network issues (to the point it would crash my router the moment I connected it via ethernet), software crashing, Repos that apparently fixed things that didn't, hardware acceleration h264 decoding refusing to work regardless of which VAAPI version i install. If i googled any kind of problem i was having, the answer would either be massive number of repos to install and CLI commands to run that i had no idea what they were doing "elitists" berating people for being "stupid" because "it's such a basic thing that you should already know" outdated instructions instructions for a different distro then being told they should not be using the distro they are and to switch to their preferred one. and here's where we have the crux of the issues and where you and i differ Never had a broken update never had an issue with updates interrupting anything i do. never had an update break software or hardware. the part i've accepted and mitigate as best i can. Never needed to or wanted to downgrade to 7, 8 or 8.1. speculation at best for the consumer version of windows I've never noticed ads (with the exception of the "pre-installed" things like candy crush, which is part of my W10 setup list to remove), which means they are non-intrusive.. Simply put, Linux is not for me.
  19. or if you decline, they just put a pop-up over the entire page to say "if you dont accept, we cannot (read: won't) show you this content"
  20. It won't expire because it's not a subscription/cloud-based software. The key will always work. I also use Windows 10 given that most of the time spend on my desktop will be gaming, it would be wildly inefficient to restart the computer every time i want to play a game, then if i take a break for an hour or so, restart into linux, do what ever, restart again to then start playing again. Linux is not worth the hassle for me. Trust me, i've tried multiple times to even move just my laptop (not a gaming machine) to Linux and eventually reverted back to Windows because of all the issues it was facing. We're in different situations though. Going by your post history you have a massive dislike for Microsoft and a complete aversion to Windows. I don't. As i said in a previous post, i know what i'm giving up to stay with windows and have accepted that, i do what i can to minimize the risk, but i would be giving up a LOT more if i moved to Linux.
