I've looked at this and it seems like it would be awesome if it was further along in development. Would be a nice thing to dual boot in case I end up switching to 10 (damn it Killer Instinct why do you tempt me) and something doesn't work in it.

regarding Win10-only games, you will probably get compatibility layers allowing to run them on Windows 7 or whatever, for example Vulkan wrappers that emulate DX12...

- Windows 7 (Home Premium) SP1, x86 on Fujitsu tablet (which needs a new HDD)
- Windows 10 on WinBook TW802 (I've been using it a lot less since it got 10, funny coincidence)
- Raspbian Wheezy on Raspberry Pi B+ (replaced Optiplex, does the job just fine)
- Android 5.1.1 on Moto G (main mobile device)
- Android 6.0.1 on Nexus 7 (tablets hell yeah)
- Arch Linux (feat. openbox+tint2) on Raspberry Pi 3 (secondary desktop)

I still use too many different things help
(though I guess it's not as bad as it was before, somehow)

The Fujitsu tablet was mostly for anything that required pen input (such as drawing) but it's kinda down for the count right now since I suspect the HDD is failing - it feels far slower at even basic operations than it used to.
(I wonder how that thing would react to Windows 10 updates being offered...? It's too old for 8.1)

Oh shit, I actually have a Windows 10 laptop now. Having 8GB of RAM and an SSD, the speed difference is noticeable.

It's not my main one though since it was given by school.
Everything is still here on this 8 year old laptop.

- Windows 7 (PC)
- Windows 3.11 (DOSBox)
- Lubuntu (VirtualBox)
- Windows XP (VirtualBox)
- Windows 2000 (VirtualPC)
- Windows 10 (VMware)

I'm kind of a madman with this lol

And then I recently installed Debian on a old Compaq PC at work for later use (and had to really learn how to Linux because it didn't have any graphical interface, worked my way to install it).

My OSes are literally always changing, so here's an update.

Laptop: Windows XP and Lubuntu (separate hard drives, have to swap em out)
Desktop #1: Windows 95 and 9front
Desktop #2: Lubuntu (also a dead copy of Windows XP)
Desktop #3: Windows XP
Desktop #4: Windows XP & *cough*Windows 7 (again have to swap out the hard drives, XP is more in use though)
Raspberry Pi: Unsuprisingly, Lubuntu. Thinking of putting 9front on it, if not that then just standard Plan 9.
Random Floppy Disk: MEOS (one of those "Micro OSes")

All are on actual hardware, never cared much for VM's

I've always heard Arch was a total pain in the ass to upgrade and the result was often "just reinstall a new version". Has that changed?


Right now I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 (I think? the laptop at home might be 17.04) but I'd like to try out one of the other flavors like Xubuntu or Mint for better window managers and no compiz.

Update to my OSes: Replace Tamaki's Mac OS X 10.4.11 with 10.5.8, then add a 15" PowerBook G4 called Rin that's also running OSX 10.5.8.

Rin still needs some parts and whatnot (she has an amazing keyboard right now...) but once fixed, I'd like to promote her to "Main Systems" probably replacing Kyouko (Dell Latitude C640).

I've converted to Linux, apparently.
Took me a decade, but here we are.
I miss Windows 8.1, honestly, but with the way Windows 10 has been going, uh. Might as well do what I did in 2012 with Windows XP->7 and just get the move over with.
