<Rick> No, I've been too broke lately to go out and do something like that!

<Bayer A.User> @rick: Lately it seems i've been doing more LOWTECH(leaking plumbing) than anything else. But this aint a home improvement website....Haha

<Rick> Microsoft is supposed to be having another Bug Bash starting next week. It should be interesting since most of the 19H1 series of builds have had stability issues where things almost work, but don't.
Jan 17, 2019 17:58:17 GMT -6
<Rick> Whatever Microsoft is changing to the code base is breaking drivers, simple functions that have always worked before now don't, builds having chronic update problems going between builds is on the rise again, forcing the need for more clean installs.

<Rick> One would think most of this stuff should have been solved a long time ago for Windows 10, but the problems just seem to keep coming back, manifesting itself to be worse now than it was before.

<Bayer A.User> Pulled the trigger on FeatureUpdate v1803. Six hours of updates&Reboots and the end result was.....Failed to install Error 0x8024200d !shit, i didn't really want it anyway

<Bayer A.User> BTW,currently at 16299.192 v1709. We shall see how that works. If it scrambles my cable tv picture again I SWEAR TA GAWD THAT HDD GETS WIPED AND LINUX INSTALLED !

<Rick> Yeah, Windows 10 isn't very good at playing video files. No issues with Linux or Windows 7 on the same system.

<Bayer A.User> Microsoft and Nike apparently have the same business model

<Rick> Call me stubborn, but I am finally ready to give up on testing Windows 10. Going along with each new iteration, it has become more and more obstinate about getting installed onto a given system while chewing up more and more resources in doing so.

<Rick> With Windows 7 soon losing support according to Microsoft, I see there has been a lot more activity on YouTube where people are seriously looking at, and reviewing alternative OS's to use instead of Windows..

<Rick> I compromised, I gave up on testing Windows 10 and went out and installed something much more stable called Windows 8.1!
Aug 4, 2019 19:03:02 GMT -6
<Bayer A.User> Can't argue with you Rick, Stable n fully supported for a few more years. 8.1 has it's own hijinks though if one doesn't have a touchscreen. Not nearly as much fun as 7

<Rick> I was on the preview program for Windows 8 way back when. It was okay, but I had lost interest in it very quickly when the Pro edition had a known bug in it that can crash a system upon setup. I was so lucky to be one of those.
Aug 11, 2019 22:11:24 GMT -6
<Rick> As for installing Windows 8.1, it is my backup plan., but Windows 7 is still my main OS.

<einzweidrei> Wow. Does anyone come on here anymore. I've been away so long that I forgot my logon info and had to make a new profile. I'll check the board later, but looks like it's deserted. -Michael (OG Admin)

<Rick> Yes, I've been checking in every now and then, but you are right, it's been very quiet here.
