HI there, I've noticed this thread hasn't had much activity in a while, and we're reaching the end of July. Has there been any progress on the blackbox rehaul yet?

The short answer is YES.

But it's summer, guys :) Mojmir needs some time yet :)

Hey, just wanted to say I'm really looking forward to the possibility of being able to use Blackbox as a stable shell for Win10.  Seems the version of bbzero I've managed to get functioning has intermittent and random crashing, although it's difficult to say where the conflict is happening as I'm not running on a clean system.  Thanks for all your hard work, mojmir and all other programmers who've contributed.  I appreciate your efforts.

I think the real question is who attaches a network cable to an internet connected router with XP ;)

I'd just like to know what functionality anyone else thinks BB needs for XP? It seems mostly feature-complete, although I think the various config utilities could be better consolidated.  I just want it to run on Win 10 and up going forward as necessary.  ;)

also hyped for the W10 bb rehaul as I can not run on any other version of Windows (for realtime low-latency performance, the W10 kernel is unbeatable), besides it would take 4x12h to reinstall all my programs

This is good to hear. Although, I still can't convince myself to use W10, with it's forced updates and telemetry. I'm still on Win 8.1 64 bit. Will this new version be compatible with Win 8.1 too?

 

PS. I haven't been here for quite some time.... Hi everyone :) Nice to see things still cooking here :)

Hi Liquid,

 

the forced updates can't be cancelled, only delayed up to one year. But the telemetry can be stopped. There are several programs out there that can do that. One them that I use myself is "Destroy Windows 10 Spying". Sounds rather archaic but it does what it says. Might be worth a try, maybe in a virtual machine for testing first :)

A year? I didn't realize that. But that would only be for W10 Pro, wouldn't it? I have 2 PC's (one with home and one with pro). I use one only for music and art. I'm thinking of keeping that one offline wherever possible.

 

Thanks for the tip. I downloaded DWS :)

Hi Liquid,

 

as far as I'm concerned delaying updates in Win10 works on all versions. It's been a bit since I read about it but when I searched for it recently I found out there are several ways of delaying or even deactivating updates, like:

https://www.guidingt...tes-windows-10/

 

Though I stick to recommending to install updates when they're out because many of them are security fixes which are very important. Keeping your windows computer offline is a quite smart method of staying out of trouble with viruses etc. But this way you got to download and install updates yourself.

 

Anyway, I don't want to make this a Windows-Update-Thread so enough of it :)

 

@Mew:

... since what? :)

tbh there is an even EASIER way to disable (and re-enable updates) then GPedit or metering.  (that said I would wholeheartedly suggest metering if you have to pay for internet in remote locations, guided my husband on this methodology and it worked well but could interfere with other windows apps so I wouldn't recommend it for everyone)

 

Just, 

win+r

services.msc

Disable Windows Update Service

 

Should stop it straight up in its track(did for me), giving you control over when you want to update.  ((Echo))That said i'de suggest updating, especially once an update has been out for a bit.  A little extra e-safety from patches goes a long way.((Echo))  OOSU is a good way to figure out if any telemetry is re-enabled with update, as it'll actively tell you windows changed a setting when loading.

 

 

 

On topic, been about a year since the first post.  Updates would be nice! Even a "been too damn busy" post would help quell the beast within.

Thanks, molecube. I checked out that link.

And thanks, Ritz. I do, in fact, have a limited data allowance. I keep windows updated, but I manually install security only updates, from the MS catalogue. And of course defender updates (on Win 8.1).

I downloaded OOSU. Thanks for that. I'm slowly gathering some nice tools to protect myself from... an OS :unsure:

 

Yes, a little update on how things are progressing would be much appreciated... and groovy, in a far out and happening way
