  1. Past hour
  2. sad part is.. there will be nerds actually buying this.
  3. Lol. Ubuntu is the only distro that tries to look better in the Linux world. Mint is so 2000's. You haven’t tried too many distros then. There is nothing particularly great about how Ubuntu looks. Ubuntu is actually one of the ugliest looking distros I've seen. Back in the day when I started messing around with Linux, it was Ubuntu 8.04 that was the latest and I really liked that Gnome 2.x UI with the bar on top and bottom and you had the freedom to move it all to just one bar and place it wherever you want. Since Ubuntu updated its desktop environment to Unity or whatever it's call
  4. That's just stupid to require internet on home edition, there are TONS of home users that don't have internet access at home
  5. Microsoft needs to stop with this BS with required connection and account thing. It's dumb and annoying. I don't want to connect my entire computer to the stupid account. I only do it for the Microsoft Store and that's as far as I'll go.
  6. Requiring internet during installation would be epic fail, as Windows 11 can't ship with Ethernet or WiFi adapter drivers for future PCs with new components... I don't think you will be able to buy a PC with Home preinstalled that doesn't have a supported driver. Places like HP and Dell have agreements with Microsoft for hardware support. I have bought plenty of new hardware components that didn't have the correct driver for Windows yet, but that is on the hardware maker, not Microsoft. I mainly thought self-assembled desktops, but this could also include some custom laptops from smalle

    A $4,999 RTX 3090 has just been released by COLORFUL

    Jesus Christ, when will this stupidity stop?
  8. The bank won't let me remortgage my house, so I'll have to pass.
  9. I remember when the advice was to not have a connection during Windows install as your PC could be owned before you got to the post-install desktop...

  11. A $4,999 RTX 3090 has just been released by COLORFUL by Sayan Sen COLORFUL today has officially unveiled the most expensive, the biggest, the baddest RTX 3090.

  16. Given that the network driver loadout provided in the .wim can never be complete for all past and future hardware, it's an unrealistic expectation for a fresh install to a blank disk. I could see it being an OOBE flag that would be on by default and thus active for OEM preinstalls, and only Microsoft would set the online account requirements during OOBE to off for .iso installation packages downloaded with the USB media tool or MSDN. I don't like or agree with it, but it wouldn't surprise me. Could still just be a bug though. I'm sure Windows 11 will have plenty of those. Awful lot they're

  19. Are they kidding? You can't set up a Windows 11 install without internet?? Then again they pulled this crap with Xbox
  20. Great find indeed. Let's hope this bypass remains in place for the RTM.
  21. Great find, Warwagon! I really hope this is just because it's not an official release. They can't really expect everyone to have an Internet connection for the setup, can they?
  22. Windows 11 Home requires internet to complete setup, but there's a workaround by Abhay Venkatesh A Windows 11 ISO leaked to the web earlier this week, bringing the ability for enthusiasts to try out the upcoming OS from Microsoft and get an early look at the changes, including some cool new wallpapers. In the few days that the build has been out, users have been giving the OS a spin and finding some quirks in it. One such interesting – and surprising – aspect was found by our reader Adam (warwagon) relating to the Windows 11 Home Out-of-box experience (OOBE) process. The Redmond firm has
