I have windows gaming rig and various older systems, for gaming or things in forced to use windows for… but have not liked any system since 7

I daily drive Mac laptops and reboot once or twice a year… maybe. Love the stability. Bought my wife a M1 and it is rock solid, sips resources, and blazing fast. It’s quite amazing.

I’ve played with several Linux distros and like the OS but don’t like using Linux apps vs Mac apps. I actually like to use Linux to partition/format my windows systems.

im guessing cortana will take a good 1-2Tbs in the new Windows


Who uses Cortana ?
It uses little to no resources.


Actually it can use up to a gig of ram and it will slow down games huge... depending on usage

I only reboot my Windows 10 home computer because of the updates, otherwise it's always on, and has been since I bought it, 13 years ago.

My boss does the same with her Windows 10 work computer.

From my personal experience, stability depends on a great part on the hardware and drivers, followed by third party software stability.

Windows 11 is such a disaster it should be dubbed Windows 9-11.

The amount of performance hogging crap in this so-called OS is staggering.

You can remove some of the bloatware using 3rd party tools, such as Windows Debloater, found here:
github.com...
(Works with Windows 9-11 too)

And if you are still using old mechanical drives, you probably noticed how your HDD is getting raped when you start up the OS. Here is a video demonstrating how to fix that:

This is also true for users with SSD drives.

Also if you are not a gamer, dont miss
distrowatch.com...
All the latest Linux distributions. Mint recommended.

My son’s gaming laptop needs restarting several times a week. Our desktop needs rebooted almost daily.

Same computer with Linux never needs restarted and feels twice as fast subjectively.

I’ve never seen a computer with windows as stable as you claim.

So mondo cuddos for knowing how to eliminate all the problems plaguing most windows systems. I know such masters exist tweaking there systems.

I humbly bow to your windows mastery. :bow:

Don't forget maintenance for those better parts -- such as keeping it dust-free at the vents, replacing any fans with wear, and re-application of the thermal paste to the CPU. It's a bit of a pain in the butt for some tower/laptop housing designs for people to get to the CPU, but after that's tackled, it's a simple task of remove old paste, clean, reapply, reassemble.

The problem (and I think by industry design, disposable goods & all) is most people have no idea this really IS a critical thing to keep up on. The paste does dry out after a while, and when that's dried out, it's no good for heat dissipation anymore, and hello overheating and slowdown issues.

I didn't tweak it much, I only disable the services I don't need. And I always choose stable hardware. The first computer I had that never needed to be rebooted was one I made myself in which I installed Windows 2000 Server (originally it had Windows 95, so you can see this was many years ago). That computer was so stable that I was able to add and remove the network card with the computer on without any problems.

One thing I didn't mention is that my computers are all desktop towers, as I prefer that format. Some years ago I even saw a CPU maker's (I think it was AMD) guide for CPU use and they didn't recommend using the CPU on "horizontal" towers (I don't know what to call them), as those did not have enough air circulation to cool the CPU.

PS: in all these years I never tried a Windows/Linux dual boot system, as I never find a need for Linux strong enough to install a dual boot system instead of just using a virtual machine when I need access to a Linux system.

I don’t dual boot.

I put Linux on a separate hard disk then change the startup order in the bios.

This way there is never a conflict.

Linux never locks up or needs restart.

Never had your luck with windows system. They all need rebooting weekly or more often.

My most stable window system was oddly enough a Windows Vista Dell very high end laptop. Only had to restart it a couple times a month. I find this highly ironic as almost everyone hated Vista and had problems.

Only problem I had was when I was hospitalized the VA lowered the bed and crushed my laptop which they had put underneath. They paid it out and I bought Mac laptops from thereon until I bought this Gaming laptop for my son.

All my macs almost never need rebooting.

That's better, but I can't do it, as I don't have any free space for more disks on my computer.
