7 because I don't want to be stuck in the woods with someone elses computer. Also 7 has the good version of paint.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 3 weeks ago

Hm, nobody addressed the fact that Windows 7 is outdated and has known vulnerabilities. The idea of this question was to see whether people would rather be spied on by Microsoft or by unknown strangers.

Spied on in the woods without an internet connection?

I pressed X to doubt so hard that my phone screen cracked.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 3 weeks ago

I dunno, if I'd built a shelter, 1 or 2 windows would be enough I think.

[-] [email protected] 9 points 3 weeks ago

What the hell do I need Windows for if I'm stuck in the woods??

[-] [email protected] 3 points 3 weeks ago

I don't know about you, but my Outlook on survival while being an Explorer would definitely rise. I'd say I would Excell at the task at hand if I'd be pushed to the Edge like that, mark my Word!

This made me chuckle!

Def 7, it was the first OS used at work that turned invisible.. It didn't need constant defragging, optimizing or registry hacks like 98, 2000 or XP used to. It was a workhorse.

That said, I haven't used 11 yet. My company just announced that this year all PCs will stay on 10 for the foreseeable future.

[-] [email protected] 4 points 3 weeks ago

Depends, assuming a fresh install, can you even create account on win11 without internet access? Last i checked, it wont let you start with local account and requires MS account.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 3 weeks ago

Yes, Windows 11 N or using a Rufus modified version.

Mine doesn't have a Microsoft account.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 3 weeks ago

Apparently you can, during setup there is a window of 11 milliseconds during which you need to press a combination of 11 keys so you're allowed to create a local account. The procedure only costs 11€ per try too

[-] [email protected] 5 points 4 weeks ago

11 easily. Not everyone hates. It personally I think it's worth it for AutoHDR alone. And the simplified start menu makes a lot of sense once you put the start button back where it goes and block ads in the menu.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 3 weeks ago

Windows, the only OS you must hit the start button in order to halt it

[-] [email protected] 4 points 4 weeks ago

Windows 7 got Solitaire so probably that

[-] [email protected] 10 points 4 weeks ago

Windows 11. Because Windows 7 ate Windows 9.

[-] [email protected] 8 points 4 weeks ago

11, so that when I outrun the bear, it'll be 11 who dies, while 7 is waiting for me at home

[-] [email protected] 5 points 4 weeks ago

You'd be screwed with 11, please connect me to the internet to login to your account. So I'll take 7.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 4 weeks ago

I'm not sure what I'm gonna do with a computer in the woods but I guess Windows 7 if I have to pick between those.

[-] [email protected] 13 points 4 weeks ago

Neither. I go into the woods to unplug.

[-] [email protected] 4 points 4 weeks ago* (last edited 4 weeks ago)

I go there to get bitten by mosquitos.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 4 weeks ago

Mom: We have mosquitoes at home.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 4 weeks ago

I would prefer a REAL girlfriend to a square headed girlfriend. Stuck. In the woods.

[-] [email protected] 5 points 4 weeks ago

Since the woods has not internet, 11. No ads, no tracking. Do need the old context menus and a few things before I head out though.

[-] [email protected] 4 points 4 weeks ago

Sorry, but you can't even log in without Internet.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 3 weeks ago

Really? LOL

I'm on Windows for work but I login to a Linux box to do any work within the first five minutes

[-] [email protected] 4 points 4 weeks ago* (last edited 4 weeks ago)

Grew up on windows 7. It was all I needed and was perfect. I don't need anything else. I didn't even want 10 but 10 is...ok I guess. I def don't want 11 though.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 4 weeks ago

Duh, I'd rather be stuck with Vista.

But since it's not even an option, I would choose Windows 7 by default. Although 8.1 wasn't really THAT bad, I just think it will be treated exactly the same as 7 in terms of software support, similarly to how programs dropped support for Vista at the same time they did for XP.

[-] [email protected] 8 points 4 weeks ago

I am already in the woods on Windows 7

[-] [email protected] 4 points 4 weeks ago
[-] [email protected] 12 points 4 weeks ago

Win 7, because I can use it as bargain to trade with locals who help me to get out of the forest and back to civilisation. No one would be interested in Win 11 so that choice is obvious.
