Windows 7 can't run new hardware. If it could, I'd probably still be using it. Now I have to """learn""" stuff and """adapt"""
Fucking bullshit.

>>24392
Believe me. I learned my lesson. If it ain't broke and all that.

I don't want this thread to be about me or my retardation. What are your most recent small victories? I want to celebrate with you all.

>>24396
Did you? Is that... well, congratulations anyway!
>>24398
It can, and with less effort than doing anything on Linux.
But optimal lack of any effort is using a few years old hardware with it because absolutely nothing worth playing has been released it won't run anyway.

That's the truth. Newest game I played was battletech, the turn-based one with pronoun selections on character creation It was fun for a bit, but even on the hardest mode once you get 5 assaults every mission is piss easy. I wouldn't have upgraded from my windows 7 machine if it didn't break.

I've had issues running some cracked steam games, they crash after about a minute of running, probably a simple fix. Other than that, no problems.

Wine today is slightly less shit, with games the compability is fairly high assuming there is no fuckery going on such as rootkit levels of DRM/Anti Cheat measurement and other such niggerlicious shit. With tools however its still a mixed bag, recently I've tried to get City of Heroes ouroboro version to work as a server as its the only way to apply modifications and fucking wine dumped on me with odbc32 error, though I've tried some tools made for C&C modding such as SHP Builder and the Palette editor and they work alright. 

It's a damn bummer I can't get the server to work because I would like to make a new firearm set so that I can bug DrBrain with it.

I like Lubuntu anon to be dual booted with lakka. That's all I ever need. It's not great though. Lakka is in beta and Lubuntu has some weird video codec issues that randomly pop up that broke a fav putlocker site I use for example ergo I still use windows 7 for lack of autism and my netbook has me locked out of the bios anyway and I don't want to break it removing the cmos potentially when it might not even work to reset the password and also might fuck up the drivers to the point that the keyboard won't even respond.

I unlike OP only need what lakka and lubuntu do though, no windows pc gaming for me and lubuntu seems to even have a bitorrenting client already on it and everything you'd need. Both are light weight too. Also they sound nice together even, both L's, even Lakka and Lubuntu are both OS's, not that I've used it as I don't have a pi 3.....yet. I'm jus' sayin'.

Compatibility issues with newer shit to older shit, why did you buy newer to use with older tech? That's just stupid. Feature creeping is meant to force you to buy new things and Windows is both the gaming computer and very much not free. They want to make money, how could you not see that coming? Using linux to use windows, why not just give up on new games as they are cancerous?

I've been using Kubuntu for over half a year now, the switch from Wangblows 10 to Linoox was a bit rough, but I think it's for the better so far. Wine surprises me every time I use it, it's amazing how well Windows programs work under it (Big proprietary programs like Mixcraft 8 load up and workn perfectly, but tiny independent 8MB tools don't work for shit, funny how that works). Thinking about switching to Devuan soon to get away from systemdicks but that will take a lot of testing to make sure my shit still works.

It's only 500ish mb big so you can pair it with 700ish or 1gish big lubuntu to have lite tier OS's that can do everything you need from torrenting, video watching (maybe with lubuntu) book reading, and gaming nes/snes/gb/gbc/gba/n64/psx(even dolphin I read but not my machine) ergo it has all in all what you would need. They both can be ran on a pi 3 or an x86 machine, both have 32bit and 64 bit versions. 32 bit version lakka CANNOT use n64, but 64bit can they say. Don't use a pi zero, you will be angry at at it for having missing snes layers and gba being either slow or not working at all, psx hardly works of course at all, my pocketgo is better than that option as you end up with such form factor and not having to flip flop OS's to book read, then again the pocketgo is not on topic and has no bookmark i am aware of nor search feature as a raspbian/raspup/picore/lubuntu os probably WOULD, so if you want to have a clunky book reader that's probably not even a handheld device despite the small chip(s), anyway, lakka is okay. 

Lakka is k for x86 64bit but not really 32bit due to n64 issue. Why do this? Because downloading all of debian's packages is huge for no reason and who can even use a console anyway? Lubutnu coming with a torrenting client is why I say that one also, I failed at installing things before when playing around with a linux machine. 

Also lakka has a pretty gui, but at the same time you have to set it up in a weird way, but it's not that hard considering it has all it needs, and if not you can look up how to link a bios file. it takes some sorting through files in other words, but once you know how it's easy. 

If I recall
>load content
>click into archive
>load archive
>choose emulator
>it plays if properly mapped and if bios is properly chosen a link for
>if sound not working you can choose with right vs left a different sound driver
>with pi zero lakka refused to laod for composite, had to use nightly then broke gba
>had to try sever times to get the sound to work until realized it glitches easy if you don't KNOW to press left vs right and do something like enter it shows a keyboard you don't even want to show up and breaks to where you need a fresh install
>black globs happened when adjusting text size with zero
*shrugs* I played around with a  zero but with a dead i5 I put lubuntu on and also flash drive booted lakka on it worked just fine. Dell latitude 64bit that was. 

I hate sudo apt-get nonsense and having to be connected to a network in short, those two negate my having to worry about that. I hear debian can have everything with it but I didn't know that when I moved on to those two things. Downloading gb's of data when it could be 1.x gb is better anyway for two smaller OS's. 500 and 700/1000mb. 

....It's in beta though.....and one is light ubuntu of which ubuntu is based on debian......whatever

I like modest things. It's why I bring up my pocketgo as well as tiny SOC's you make yourself. Yes I am a neet

So it's, like, Retroarch if you're too lazy to setup Retroarch or an individual emulator, but also not too lazy to partition hard drive space and then do all of that shit? I still don't understand the appeal of a linux distribution that just emulates stuff. Does it run games better?

With how bloated and convoluted shit like retropie is and how slow retroarch was on android when I tried it it can go fuck itself honestly, though yes it is all from libretro or whatever. 

Linux being free is the only appeal. Having to copyright infringe kike-rosoft is a pain in the ass and no geek ever liked apple. 

If linux were so bad jewgle'd not have made android from it and take the world over with it. 

At the end of the day you feel less watched, or did before systemd.

Of course not, stop with the conspiracy. 
It just has huge binary blobs that you shouldn't worry about and totally don't do anything. Goes against the unix philosophy and does everything in your system, from managing files to passwords even though it shouldn't. Forces google shit on you by default. Lets processes run on your computer after you log off. And adds a bunch of vulnerabilities to your machine.
But this is all completely safe.
