windows users beware: changes to win 7 / 8.x updates
Isn't that just dandy...
Appreciate the heads-up!
Hm. If there's an auto install in the updates, I'll probably go bare. If there's a description that lets me decide if I want it or not, I might be less apt to squall. Hm, again.
Thanks for that update @sec_monkey - I've bought my last copy of Windows - I'll keep one machine Windows so I can continue to use Windows only apps, but everything else is going Linux.
Well, that's a problem.... Yes, it just might be a good time to start the move to Linux...
Sounds like I need to get moving to get the last of the data I want off of the only remaining Windoze platform in the house.
DistroWatch.com: Put the fun back into computing. Use Linux, BSD.
OSX is still fun for me...
Could run Win 7 inside Oracle VM box (on top of Linux) if you must still have it for certain apps. Microbarf can keep their updates.
I prefer to run ALL MicroSquash OSs in a Virtual Machine.... By doing this is I get a Virus, or whatever, I can just dump that VM and bring back a Previous Backup, and continue On... without ever compromising my Base OS....
That's what I do also. Only one computer has windows installed as a bootable OS. The rest use Linux with Oracle VM if Windows is needed.
