  1. Okay, we're back on track with the double entendres or straight-up talking about sex. I'm (trying) to go to sleep (which took me almost 4½ hours last night ). 11pm is late enough for me. Good night, people!
  2. You might want to fix that because usually "flu" is just short for influenza. But I do agree with that. I just think that, due to the labs being overwhelmed with the large (and in terms of sports massively overzealous) amounts of tests, the flu just doesn't get any recognition. Because I find it incredibly hard to believe that the flu has been practically "eradicated" all of a sudden.
  3. Most likely not, my 970 Evo Plus system drive is also below my CPU cooler and doesn't have any issues. Not to mention that the controllers are so advanced that they'll clock down like any other CPU should it overheat. Heat killing M.2 drives is thus unlikely. Look at most laptops, for example. The SSDs usually are not under any airflow in a significantly more restricted space and still work great. After all, M.2 and such form factors were designed to be smaller and used in smaller spaces, so they can handle it. Also, once it says "NVMe SSD" it will work in an NVMe slot, the model doesn't
  4. Thank you for saying that, my neighbours are just as much ass as yours are.
  5. Damaging the slot is pretty much impossible because the B+M-Key slot means that it can take both SATA (B+M-Key) and NVMe (M-Key) drives. The NVMe drive that came with my laptop and the one I bought as a higher-capacity, higher-performance replacement are both PCIe x2 and also B+M-Key, and they fit perfectly in my desktop as well. If you were to have a B-Key only slot (M.2 SATA), which I have never seen before, you would simply be unable to install an NVMe SSD in the first place. Just like RAM, you can only install the right one as, for example, a DDR3 stick wouldn't fit in a DDR4 slot.
  6. Pretty much every device over 600 bucks has some touchscreen version and they're definitely not rare, especially since the advent of convertibles and 2-in-1 devices. Some people like them, some don't. But I'd honestly rather have the option to use it over an OS that has huge touch-friendly buttons but super small context menus that couldn't possibly be used with it, which makes OSes like macOS and a lot of Linux distributions half-assed in that aspect. What is the point of huge, touch-friendly icons but super small text boxes and context menus that can't be used with anything else than a mouse
  7. Yeah, you're flexible concerning OSes yet incapable of using the simplest UI, while using terminology that doesn't exist. "R=1 user", what is that even supposed to mean? A Google search didn't give me answers. But sure, since you're not actively using Windows 10, why cry here? You're appearing like the militant [insert minority]. "Oh, I'm a Linux user so everything about the other options is crap!" Okay. That's your opinion. Same goes for your preference for the toy-like (in my opinion, at least) Ubuntu UI. I personally don't like to use an OS where most of what you want to accomplish (li
  8. Well, I have completely re-installed Windows 10 on three different NVMe-only systems, there hasn't been "a nightmare" at all. It worked every time. That you encounter issues like the installer not finding your SSD usually has other issues at hand, like BIOS configuration and is an exception rather than the norm.
  9. I certainly don't have those issues. Not even my 74 year-old grandfather who has been using laptops since the late 90s had any issue adapting. Just like with the old control panel you can search everything, both in the Settings UWP app as well as the old Control Panel (which can, quite frankly, disappear in my opinion. Everything that's in there can be put in the UWP panel). It rather seems to me as though both you and your "many people" around you just don't want to accept the fact that Windows 7 was over 10 years ago and that, for 5 years, the clock has been ticking differently and can't ada
  10. You could keep it, but AMD systems strongly benefit from faster RAM, DDR4-2133 is among the slowest DDR4 there is (just over DDR4-1600 and DDR4-1866) and it is basically not being manufactured at that low speed anymore (at least I haven't seen such sticks in a longer time). 3200CL16/15 is basically the way to go and recommended, not to mention that they are usually not even that much more expensive than, say, 2400-2666 MHz, if at all.
  11. Maybe in your opinion, I have no issue whatsoever with the UWP interface. At least it ends the scaling issues, but it doesn't look "bad" by any means, at least in my opinion. "Windows 7 looked better!" Well, then keep using it. UWP is definitely not a "dead platform". Not to mention that I assume that the "idiot" who designed it did a way better job than you ever could. And while we're at it: Unpopular opinion time! Windows Vista's interface is more appealing to me than Windows 7, the only thing I prefer in the Windows 7 design is the usage of lighter colours while Vista was a darker-coloured
  12. Well, first of all, the Windows Registry doesn't need to be cleaned up. It is neither large in terms of size on the drive nor does it load things that it doesn't need. And "system cleanup" is a thing that Windows itself does best, it already does that really well. Given the fact that your GPU apparently doesn't get used at all since the registry mess, I would actually re-install over a stick. Completely format the drive and install Windows anew. And don't ever use stuff like CCleaner again, especially not "registry cleaners" or "system boosters/tune-up software". They do more harm than go
  13. You know that Windows 7 only had a single Service Pack? Or are you talking about the Convenience Rollup that consists of over 100 updates? What I forgot to write in my first post: For some reason, the only "under the hood" change that actually seems to happen (or is announced here) is the changed audio stack IIRC, the rest of the "big changes" is just visual this, design that. And when a huge OS like Windows has to list 90% of all changes as visual updates as a "major overhaul", Microsoft is doing something wrong. I'm sure that there are actually more important things to work on in
  14. Well, maybe he'll let you when you've become a proctologist
  15. The terms "USB" and "PCIe" and "works better" or "works not so good, but is cheaper" are not that much different in Polish. Anyway, you can use either a USB WiFi stick or a PCIe WiFi card if you want to use WiFi.
