Mine came with my computer.
Dude have you even tried a web search? It is never hard to find info on how to set up a pirated OS.
If it is too hard for you to find and use then maybe you are better off using a free OS.

I thought Nuwindows was free but it comes packed with MS adware

 No.229514

You can download it for free off of mircosoft's website. You can find keys to fully activate it online, there are generic keys meant to be used by businesses to activate large numbers of computers I think. I don't remember where I got it from though. Not that it matters, as the free version does little to hinder you.

The only hardware I've had not work was made to be 7 defunct on purpose. It was an Xbox controller 2 years ago. Many new hardware that doesn't fall under the wide scope of simple USB I/O and therefore actually depends on drivers will usually have a Win7 version, but it often relies on a fully updated system which can be a bitch to get on a pirated OS as Microsoft keeps burying their support pack downloads ever deeper under Win10 propaganda.

Windows 7 keys could be used to "upgrade" to Win 8 during the beta, so maybe he's confused. 8, 8.1, and 10 are all the same brand of garbage anyway

You can transfer a windows 10 key from one computer to another but it turns off windows on the pc you take it from

Or you can download an installer from Microsoft’s website and buy a key on eBay for 2 bucks. Mine worked

Just to be sure, you can suspend wlms.exe at startup, and it will never ask for license.

I got my Win10 from TPB a couple weeks ago and it's fine. Preactivated and updates without issue. It is still Win10 though so it is a virus on its own

Not him but literally in this day and age half of my torrents never start downloading and they never upload at all.

Since, like him, the days of isohunt, I've not even hardly bothered with torrenting. I direct download most things. I direct downloaded win98 this past month with directx to go with it and such just in case I get bored, and win98 has direct downloads on emulator sites now days.

….but anyway….. p2p is dogshit. I tried to post on zeronet. Didn't work. I tried to watch a video on bitchute… didn't work.

Everything is just getting more and more dogshit over time. I don't care if it's "just me" because I'm still not the only one even if it is.

It is strongly likely your ISP is blocking P2P activity.

 No.233739

>>233619
yeah without a vpn i can't really torrent. in the good old days it was great but now i'll be sent letters. i think companies seed popular content and log all the p2p connections, and using the law they force isps to hand over info on the IPs they log, and then you get send notices from some fucking company you never heard of. that is what seems to happen to me anyway. i don't trust vpn companies though so basically i don't bother with any of that shit anymore

i remember you used to be able to download win7 from official digitalriver or digitalocean website. you didn't need to even fully activate it, you could just modify some environment variable and disable some services and it would let you continue using it unactivated without issue. they've succeeded in making win10 such a clusterfuck i'm terrified what the next iteration of windows will become

Do the retards refusing to progress claiming it's a spyware realize that win7 will no longer get security updates which will expose them to more serious risks?

ISPs are legally obligated to spy on you and report your activity if it is piracy etc. VPN providers rely on protecting your data for their business model. At least you could just use the VPN for torrents, it doesn't seem logically sound not to

>implying Linux is as usable
It will never be. Installing from the source code is too much a pain in the ass and games, even old emulators, work better for windows. That and linux died once systemd infected everything. They're not even free anymore, the normal distros.

I recently tried out lakka and it's psx couldn't even load img files nor iso, just bin and cue. Then it has trouble with snes games and other things it shouldn't. Linux is a joke. Trying to install things even with network connections is a pain in the ass and then shit like lakka can't run a n64 game on a 32 bit pc, yet project 64 can on some old laptop with windows 7 or xp.

It's such shit. Also the government funds linux. Who would you trust more? The government or just corrupt rich guys? One might serve you but the other blatantly is just to control you.

>>233777
Also, my point was they don't look. They can't afford to. Unless someone's money gets fucked with too hard, then (((they))) force attention to be PAID.

Also no one is going to go fully autistic and enter numbers into urls. No one would know them. Even if they did you NEED to search.

>implying Linux is as usable
It is right now much better for everything a typical person does except gaming. All you talked about was gaming.

> Also the government funds linux. Who would you trust more?

W10 is literally proven to include NSA spyware. It admits to very invasive surveillance of users: read the terms and conditions. You can't even see what code is in there. There is no question that linux is more trustworthy as nerds and security researchers all around the world read and write the code.

If you're a very heavy gamer that doesnt care about convenience in other tasks, security or privacy then sure just use windows, otherwise you should dual boot at least

You mean I get to choose to use a small list of slightly worse version of better software or choose to use damn near any software ever created in the past 30 years?
Like about 100 programs or literally millions.
All that can be easily installed through a installer that requires like 4 or 5 clicks.
I have a disk folder around here somewhere that has more programs in it from the 90s and early 00s that has more programs that are more useful to me then the whole library of linux programs available.

i've always found linux programs to be much better. Command line programs are always more powerful. There are many things that are easy to do in linux with free programs while you have to pay for windows programs that do less. All free windows programs are full of ads and spyware. Windows appeals to incompetent normals, so so does the software. Looking through malware filled sites to do some basic video editing or whatever is unbearable

So what you are saying is you can't download programs without fucking up unless someone basicly does it for you. And that you don't know about what is out there nor care about using things that have way more functionality.
Yet you call windows users the incompetent ones.

BTW, I can't think of a single program that can be run in linux that can't be run in windows.
However I can think of dozens of programs that can be run in windows but can't be run in linux.

You vastly underestimate how much development there is for linux. Most programmers use it, it is much easier to develop for, and it appeals to open source developers, so the software available is excellent

Don't project. I know how to get water and food. Those water cleaning devices cost like twenty usd and can filter hundreds of thousands of gallons of water from any random river. Do you think it will run out of water?

Then there's food. Acorns are the same nutrition as peanuts. Bums live on peanut butter often. You just need to wash out the tannins and such.

I have solar panels and extra battereis and everything for my little win7 laptop and enough lentils and rice to sink a ship. I'll be the only one out there laughing my fucking ass off. ANdroid users have me on their lack of needing wattage but again, the apk files generally no one has without internet access. Probably becuase it's programmed by Linux users. Only win7 will win in this sort of shitfest. Can they have apk? Yes. can you have the software on linux to install from the source code? Yes. Will people actually? PSH I doubt it. If they do they'll be too autistimal to survive.

i dont even use linux. the overwhelming majority of dumb users probably just use their internet browser only. i actually had to teach my older sister a few days ago how downloading/installing programs even works for windows. she's had windows desktop computers for i dont know how long, over 12 years. it seems silly but a lot of people don't even know where programs go when they are downloaded. they think that is the installation process because they are used to smartphones i guess now where you click one button.

The only way you can say that is by counting android phones and cash registers as computers to artificially inflate the numbers.

 No.233982

One of the main reasons I see why linux sucks is that linux developers have this shitty convention OF NOT INCLUDING dynamic libraries with downloadable executables.

Imagine you were on windows, you downloaded some app and the app was like: "hey bro, you don't have this .dll fike. I don'ŧ care where you get this .dll file from and I don't care. Get this .dll file, or you won't run this app."

It's ridiculous, but this is what happends on linux.
I'm not talking about packages. I'm talking about 3rd party linux software, downloadable from internet. You download app and the app is like "missing .so file", "go fuck urself"

 No.233983

By the way, I'm using deepin linux.
I also use windows for reverse engineering games with IDA pro.
I found cracked IDA pro with both x86 and x64 decompilers on windows, but not on linux. So that's why I use windows. On windows, I can run IDA pro. On linux, I can'ŧ. For now. If any wizard has IDA pro for linux, please post it here
