This pack restores everything that was cut from 8.1 and fixes literally every issue 8.1 has, turning it into an enhanced 7 with better native driver support (and, anecdotally, better stability). But has full Vulkan support. In fact, the only reason 8.1 doesn't have DX12 is because Microsoft is being a strawberry and isolating it to Windows 10, hoping to force more people onto their new shitty OS, and thus, backing my argument even more of people being forced to use it instead of it being an OS people actually want to install, like XP or 7. Except it doesn't matter because drivers made for 7 work flawlessly in 8.1. Also, MILLIONS of people still use 8.1. All Nvidia would have to do is copypaste the driver code for 8.1, but they are so insanely lazy and/or incompetent that not only will they not allow the install by default, they hardcoded the drivers to instantly error out with a Code 43 even if you force-install them. And you know what, even IF they had to do a bit more work to get it working, are you really gonna sit here and tell me that Nvidia is so poor and strung out for money that they can't afford one or two devs to copypaste and fix up a few errors with the driver code to make it work for a major Windows OS iteration? What, are they outsourcing all their driver development to some Indian sweatshop who can't even make a Hello World program? Oh yes there freaking is. 7 and 8.1 all use up MUCH less resources while having the same damn functionality, pretty much. And that's WITHOUT any optimizing on 7 and 8.1's part, running them straight out of the box. Doesn't matter if it's been fine with you. Everyone else has had massive issues. And if that wasn't enough to convince you, here's a damn former Microsoft engineer explaining why Windows 10 updates are crap-tier compared to how they were in the past. I'm very happy for you, but some of us want full control of the computers we ourselves bought or built. Why? Also, Microsoft took it out and literally never replaced it with anything. That's your opinion and also irrelevant because regardless of whether you liked it or not, Microsoft clearly stripped them out and tried to sell it back to consumers. - On almost every metric that matters to consumers and enterprise, 10 is awful. I think the only reason people are saying otherwise is because they feel they don't have a choice and need to rationalize, saying "It's not that bad," when yes, it really is that bad, yes, it is unacceptable, and yes, we can and should expect much better from Microsoft. They've shown us many times in the past that they can make some absolute quality software that excels by leaps and bounds.
