I thought you had me on ignore list?
surprise to be sure but a welcome one.
Points finger at own head
Can't have issues with restorations, if there no restorations to be made.
Oh Windows 10 still in Beta?
*goes back to sleep*
People use system restore? Ew
Installed fine with a concluding message saying "Thank you for using the Microsoft Automatic Updater - Have a safe and productive day."
agreed ...perhaps Microsoft should release Windows 7.5 for some of us lol
My God if we had cars like this we wouldn't ever get to work.
Agreed. Seems like all these keyboard whiners could be making a lot of money with their master coding.
+1 It's probably more clown user than monkey programmer anyway.
Tell it to my new Thinkpad X1 Yoga. Intel's "drivers" for iGPU happen to love crashing on linux while waking up from suspend.
Well, we may actually blame intel. Funny as F* with my previous T450 intel's CPU had full freezes every few days due to HW bug with power management which had to be overridden by limiting power saving. Few generations newer CPU and it is GPU which causes issue for change.
For now, I found no way to prevent iGPU driver from crashing. And as it happens at wake up, it is at greeter where I can't run scripts/commands via keyboard shortcut to try restart this misbehaving driver in some more brutal way than system itself tries and fails at.
And to create process monitoring /var/log/messages for crashes would be pretty annoying as this driver crashes recoverably quite often.
And that means linux is not winner either. But for sure, it does what you tell it to do and does not stick fingers up yours to know you better.
Does this lovely update have a KB number so i can avoid it if poss.
not good, I just clean installed windows 1809 on uncles pc which is "home" I guess it going right on to "meter" connection. I think my system will stay on 1803 for time being, as I have no interest in redoing it with clean install of anything atm
To stop this crap:
gpedit.msc > Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Data Collection and Preview Builds >
"Allow Telemetry" = Enabled, "0 - Security [Enterprise Only]"
"Disable pre-release features or settings" = Disabled
Windows Components > Windows Update > Defer Windows Updates >
"Select when Feature Updates are reveived" = Enabled, "Current Branch for Business"
You can also stop any kind of windows update automation here:
taskschd.msc > Task Scheduler Library > Microsoft > Windows > UpdateOrchestrator
Disable anything you dont like the look of.
*laughs on GNU/Linux...
/oh, wait, at work, computers are running W10.
/cries in windows updates
This is working also for Home users?
Here's a clear concise article explaining the why, the how and how to recover.
Blame all the security flaws which have to be patched.
Well, at least I get to keep laughing . I'm at work writing this on a Debian install right now.
Another hosing incoming!
1903s just been released!
posted from my Antergos box from the second job place.
the only first job has Win 10, second is on the actual transition to full Linux.
We will have a Debian box with VMWare player which will virtualize a defunct XP POS which we can't get rid of, POS billing and database plus serial printer needed. But I am searching with fervor for alternatives.
For that purpose, I think Debian would be fine. Seems like one of those things where you want to just set it up and don't touch it, which Debian stable is ideal for.
Also, it seems you're going to have to double-up your search for alternatives because you might not want to be sticking with Antergos either:
But I'm sure you can just switch to Arch or Manjaro repos and you'll probably be fine.
lol not sure if the XP VM is a POS as in "point of service" or... the other one.
