RE: The official unpopular opinions thread
That's certainly an unpopular opinion. It took me a while to realize that nowhere in the thread rules was there any requirement that the opinions had to be our own
True, but that one is my own.
RE: Wondows 10 Craters' Pupdate
If the rest of the computer is old enough, there's probably still a benefit and even if there isn't it's not slowing things down.
I'd say that if the rest of the computer is old enough to slow things down it shouldn't be running Windows 10 in the first place, because I'm unsure if it'd be comfortable to use.
Actually, what would be the minimum system requirements for comfortable everyday usage? Because I'm pretty sure it isn't the minimum requirements listed by Microsoft based off previous experiences with computers on the low end of system requirements.
I've found 10 to be about equal to 8, and slightly lower than 7, actually.
Although hardware configuration matters a lot, and older hardware configs will have serious driver and performance problems. Also some configurations will be significantly better on 7 than 10.

@boomzilla I wanted to upvote your post, but have this instead:

Let's see if I remember I posted this screenshot a year from now.

The previous image was only downloaded by 2 IPs before it was deleted, both admins.
RE: Windows store for win32 apps
How does "Tivoization", which by the way is probably the stupidiest term the open source community has ever come up with, address the scenario in this post? AFAIK that only applies to devices that have some form of DRM in their firmware to prevent new code from being added.
Again: what does this have to do with the scenario in the OP?
Oh hey, I see you've met Lucas1...
RE: The Official Status Thread
What's the alternative?
No idea, but because that was happening, it crashed the entire stack so badly I was off in la-la land wondering why it couldn't find DLL files and crap when the issue was actually along the lines of "bad command line parameter was specified".
Something something checked exceptions...

RE: Censor sensitive information in screenshots
It is, because if you post someone's username (or alternatively, post a notification, screenshot of a notification, etc) of someone's username, you publish the fact that they're on Team Mafia (or whatever team they're on). That's a bad thing since it basically ruins the game. I'm assuming this happened here, somehow? Ben's looking for a way to fix that issue...
Okay, then this is a much more narrow focused than I thought.
Yeah. It also extends to other stuff - mostly someone accidentally posting a screenshot of the Lounge or other stuff, since that actually has doxxy stuff that could ruin more than just an online text-based RPG...
