Why is Mint so fucking comfy?
I always come back to it after distro hopping for a while. It's like Windows XP on steroids, it just werks, it looks beautiful, the forums are helpful, and it's 11 times faster than Windows 11 on my machine (5600X, 16Gb, RX6800, B550). Even many emulators and games work better on it than Windows.
Only thing that comes close is Zorin tbqh, everything else is fucking retarded, from KDE which crashes and has a million fucking bugs, to everything Gnome that works like a retardo version of Android.

For everyone who is not fully autistic, Mint is the best desktop OS by far.

Shamiko Edition

Users of all levels are welcome.
Share Windows tools, utilities, tips & tricks.

FAQ:
>How do I activate Windows?
https://github.com/luzea9903/winactivate/releases
HWID mimics OEM activation to generate a permanent legitimate license.
(Does not work on VL editions, avoid VL editions unless you enjoy having to deal with KMS breaking)

>>Which version should I install?
>Home/Pro
Comes preinstalled with bloatware apps like games, music, news, weather, etc.
>Education/Workstation/Enterprise
Comes with basic system apps.
>LTSC/IoT LTSC
Comes with Win32 system apps, no MS Store, no feature updates, security updates only.
If you need MS Store, run this in cmd: wsreset -i
There are no compatibility differences between different Windows versions.

>LTSC or IoT LTSC?
LTSC (VL) gets 5 years support (KMS only).
IoT LTSC gets 10 years support (HWID only).

>Do I even need IoT LTSC?
W10 Home/Pro/Edu/WS/Ent editions are all EoL in 10/2025 (2027 for LTSC) whereas IoT LTSC will be supported until 2032.

>How do I activate Office?
https://rentry.org/fwt#kms_vl_all-by-abbodi1406
Installs a tiny KMS server emulator on your PC for activation. Not ideal as KMS trips AV sometimes and deactivates, but it's the only choice for Office. Alternatively, just use MS Office online through your browser since it's completley free. As a last resort, you can try Open/Libre Office and set it to save as Office file formats only.

>Where can I get the ISOs?
>Where do I get Office?
>Can I change edition post-install?
Read the paste: https://rentry.org/fwt
>Is Optimize-Offline worth it?
No.
>Should I debloat?
Only if you understand everything that you're going to be intentionally breaking.
If something doesn't work later, you probably broke it with some debloat memescript.

>Installation for retards:
https://rentry.org/windows_for_retards

>Is Windows 11 good?
>Should I upgrade?
Not yet.

>B-b-b-but muh Windows 7!
