  1. Windows is a widely used OS that is the main target for taking advantage of security flaws. This includes your programs you use on your system. It is critical to keep everything fully up-to-date to stay safe. Be behind a good, properly supported router helps as well. Windows will never restart on you from an update unless your version hits out of support, and you'll be nagged by Windows before hands. There is no surprise. If there is then you have a hardware problem, like a faulty PSU that trips. Windows Update should always be on. Expect weekly updates, mostly on Tu
  2. You know say this, but one can easily generate a unique ID with ones PC.... I mean Microsoft does it with Win10 for activation system, and Microsoft implementation is very lax. This could be strengthened to ensure uniqueness. So I don't get your point. They are using TPM to ensure that you are not in a VM, from my understanding. But this is not good move. vSphere and Hyper-V does support TPM, and other VM will clearly follow suit.
  3. You'll have no problem installing and activating Windows 10. Just install Windows 10, on the screen where it will ask for the product key pick "I don't have one" (Win7 key won't work, this is not the place. This is for Win10 keys only). Setup will resume. Once Windows 10 is installed, and you are connected online, and you check for updates and restart, go to Settings > Update & Security > Activation, and you'll see that by magic, Windows 10 is activated. If you used a local account previously instead of a Microsoft linked account, then be sure to NOT change any
  4. I got used to the grouped icons. That said, my work PC is on Win10, so I am not sure on intense multi-tasking. All I can say, is that the taskbar of Win11 (and start menu, and search panel) are all completely new code. It is missing other features as result, like drag and drop a file on an app from the task bar, or even pinning an app (any) with drag and drop. And of course, moving the task bar doesn't work. All I know is that Windows 11 interface is not done. Project name Sun Valley is actually split into 2 phases. The first one is the one will get at release which fo
  5. I'll give it a go. But to my knowledge Hi-DPI aware applications under Linux is very poor. (200% scaling, effectively quad each pixel, isn't scaling. Me too I can do the same with Windows and go "Look! 100% of applications are high-DPI aware, even this legacy Win3.1 panel!.. yea, no....) Mind you, the font is already a blurry mess under Linux, so maybe double blurry makes sharp? I meant with FreeSync enabled on one of the panels. Considering that Amazon has infinite moneys (all of them), they could have made a deal with Microsoft and get bulk volume licenses
  6. Get yourself a 27inch 4K monitor, and set the Display Scaling to 125% or 150% (these are recommended DPI values), and come back to me. Be sure to also get that monitor with AMD FreeSync support, and turn off V-Sync to really enjoy it.. I mean you would do that under Windows, normally. Nothing special here. And this is AMD we are talking about, they provide the better Linux support. Tell how video playback is with it enabled as well. I mean, under Windows you don't enable it disable it, you just enable it and forget it. Throw in a second monitor in the mix too with such display. Maybe
  7. I don't think you know what TPM does: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trusted_Platform_Module How is any of it DRM? or malware? Linux won't take off until they start address basic issues that the Linux community refuses to fix or has no interest in fixing: https://itvision.altervista.org/why.linux.is.not.ready.for.the.desktop.current.html Many of these issues have been ongoing since the 90's, where every year it was "the year of Linux on PCs".. never happened. Even Netbooks didn't help get users onboard, and might have made things worse. OEMs have tried
  8. We will see once Windows 11 is released. Windows 11 is still in development. All I can do know, is follow Microsoft documentation. I don't know their roadmap, I don't know their plans.
  9. Yes, I know nothing... really spreading miss information all days with these Microsoft doc pages all day long.... https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/enable-tpm-2-0-on-your-pc-1fd5a332-360d-4f46-a1e7-ae6b0c90645c
  10. Actually, Edge has a password manager built-in. https://blogs.windows.com/msedgedev/2016/04/12/a-world-without-passwords-windows-hello-in-microsoft-edge/
  11. Actually, TPM is great for privacy, can also be used to improve encryption of data. VM virtualization can be implemented. It was never actually been needed in the past. So only Hyper-V and vSphere support TPM at the moment
  12. Microsoft is pushing password-less logins. Windows Hello, to be it's safest, needs TPM. It's your biometrics that it needs to keep safe. VM can add TPM support. They just never did it as it wasn't a requirement. Just wait a bit, and you'll quickly see all have them.
  13. Since Win7, it syncs with the server as the user is logged in. No more waiting ages to logoff.
