By non genuine do you mean pirated windows or just everything besides windows?

If you mean all operating systems guess I chose a faulty source
http://www.techradar.com/us/news/software/operating-systems/windows-10-release-date-price-news-and-features-1029245

Otherwise, microsoft released a rumor that non genuine users will still be non genuine even through the upgrade (which im not sure how they will do considering they can only check off the windows certificate which is either faked or avoided completely with pirated software).

Was talking about pirated windows.

All those tech news sites got confused, I don't know why.

You literally didn't understand the info everywhere.

Windows 10 Isn't free. you can upgrade but you won't get any updates if you are on a non genuine windows.

And even if you have a legitimate windows, eventually you will have to pay for updates. Most users can't see through that "Free" cloak.

They always take things apart to rate its repairability.
Macs were the worse to repair. Especially their laptops. One of the reasons i won't choose Apple computers.

No i'm not a windows fan boy. I actually prefer Linux over windows.

I like taking laptops and computers apart then putting them back together that's why i dont like macs.

They are literally hard to repair

I tried to get them as close as possible: hard drive rpm, white case, fancy apple sticker, etc. I still ended up making the custom build way better because of the upgradibility and dual GPU support (along with a decent GPU)

all a matter of preferences and neither system is inherently better than the other.

One cool feature I like about Mac is that Macintosh can run both Mac OS and Windows without going through a lot of stuff ^_^

And by "without going through alot of stuff" you mean setup a hackintosh and pirate either one.

Nope, if you actually check, its basically the same as a windows system. it just uses UEFI and a custom MoBo

Thats only it. Mac is just overpriced.
I can say that most mac apps has a windows counterpart.

Why the heck would i buy a system with overpriced OS which is actually from BSD?

Most Mac Apps can actually run on BSD or Linux with little work

Yes indeed. I also want to add that these two are totally different in what you plan to do with your computer

Mac - Development, and just creating things.

Windows - The ideal place for gaming.

The fact that you can now compile ObjCand ObjC++ on Linux using Clang
Linux is a much better option for developers actually.

+ Its easier to sell windows software than Mac software.
If you see enterprises, most of them uses windows. most of the companies hire C# programmers because of ASP.NET.

I know i disabled my updates, but that updates has to deal with bugs and security.
It's actually good that an OS gets updates regularly if you didn't know.

I already used almost Every well known OS (Well not every Linux Distro though) and I still find mac at the bottom of my list.
Some people say they like it because it doesnt lag. it was stupid, because mac os actually uses more ram (thus leaving less ram for apps) than windows.

Mac OS is just one crap full of Eye Candy

Mac hard drives really suck. I have a 500 GB one and I only have 44 GB left, I don't even download that many things.
My specs are pretty bad too, I could get a cheaper PC with better specs than that.
I'm planning on getting an Asus laptop from the ROG series. :)

One thing I really like about desktops is how you can crossfire GPUs', Overclock CPU and GPU, and much much more.

I personally love Desktops, and laptops are like you said on the go.

PS Nvidia is better because you can use it for GPU rendering in Blender.

Over the year I am going to improve some stuff, get DDR5 Ram, 8 GB, and then I am going to replace my power supply and my GPU

You see I bought this computer and I got really scammed.

I have a Gefore GT610 1gb GPU, which is total garbage. The GPU is really supported for HD movies, not so for gaming. Idk about my CPU, I might get a Intel I5 or I7 but I still haven't decided.

Idk which GPU to get, I really like GTX and all that stuff but I am trying to find one with a low Watt needed, so I can overclock it.

Windows 7 is just a really innovative software that I find easy to use. The new Windows interference and controls just seem too much for me at the moment.

However, if I was to get a new computer, I would buy one that has that latest Windows software installed just for a glimpse of how it works. Just joking. I can just go to Best Buy to try it. xD

Low watt? Gtx750ti. Runs entirely off motherboard power, no PSU slot needed. $130.

Gt610 is best for its buck like the Gt630, not meant for gaming, but runs better than most integrated for its price. Can still run things like csgo lowest settings though.
DDR5 Desktop RAM doesn't exist, I think you mean GPU RAM GDDR5, which isn't the same thing.
