Really and why and is M$ innocent? No seriously, no matter which operating system and which software, you have to take care of and adjust their security and not ONLY with 'tools'. In my opinion, Linux & BSD do this more 'simply' and efficiently, because open source.

I keep getting a bluescreen whenever I restart due to something causing ntoskrnl.exe to lock pages. How can I debug the problematic driver or process that is causing this? #windows

This is what true enshittification of Windows 11 is, unless you pirate the enterprise version.

This really shows that we need more competition. Linux is not seen as an alternative given the lack of commercial software support (e.g. lack of Adobe apps, which is used in the creative industry, etc, along with apps that only work on Windows and/or Mac).

This is why I use a Mac instead of Windows, because I don't like Windows, but I have a laptop that runs Windows to run a few apps that are Windows only. But only having two viable choices isn’t that great, likewise with iOS and Android.

If only BeOS, OS/2, etc. was still a thing, maybe it wouldn't be this bad.

Also, Windows 7 was the last “good" Windows OS until it basically turned to crap.

If you want to move people to another operating system, then create the operating system so easy that even the dumbest person on the planet is able to use it.
Like me for example.

I have no single idea why my Linux systems on my desktop and laptop constantly commit suicide.
I treat my windows such as the Linux systems equally and I'm surprised that I barely never had to kill my windows Systems but my Linux machines die constantly. I can't work like that.

Here's some ridiculous inside baseball for you: when creating an answer file for unattended installs, you have the option of using base64-encoded passwords in the XML. This is great for handling special characters and other issues. But if you don't create the answer file with Windows System Image Manager, you might miss this bananas behavior: the plaintext gets either Password or AdministratorPassword appended to it before encoding! And in fact, the installation is expecting that string to be present in the plaintext after decoding!

This is not mentioned in the Answer File reference.

In 1997, our 3-person dev team's Windows game Moon Child was released.

I initially planned a dark fairy-tale intro video for the game, and our musician Ramon Braumuller composed this soundtrack for it.
