I mean, who wants to sit through this screen:

I for one welcome security updates and bug fixes. CraftOS in the last official release is laughably broken.

Should we tell him about how Linux is better than CraftOS?

I have a Ubuntu emulator, but it is super slow. There are also virtual Linux installations on c9.io, but they only have 5 gigs, and are also slow

I have an Ubuntu VM through Virtualbox, it is very fast. I have allocated 4 cores and 11 GB of RAM to it though, so that probably helps.

I also use VBox. It's certainly faster than my windows emulator, but it is still slow.

I use an Intel i5 processer with 7.87 GB RAM. My system is a bit out of date, but it has a large disk drive, with ~900GB, as well as an additional 30GB drive

Saying "I use an Intel i5 processor" is like saying "I drive a Volkswagen". There are i5s that are worse than other i3s, or better than i7s.

Based on the (limited) info you've given us, I'm guessing you have a Windows laptop, likely running Windows 10 Home edition, which does not include virtualization features such as Hyper-V. It's also possible your hardware doesn't support virtualization extensions (or it's disabled in the BIOS) which would further contribute to poor performance.

Hyper-V is a Windows feature and wouldn't be enabled in the BIOS.

You're right, it's not in my BIOs

Hmm, I thought I had to enable something in my BIOs because 64-bit guest OS's wouldn't work, but whatever it is, the option disappeared

I don't remember which option I enabled

EDIT: Hyper-V is not a windows feature either, otherwise it would be here:

Witch version of Windows 8.1?
Probably the same thing, you need a proffesional version.

Oh, CraftOS is now definitely better than Windows. At one point earlier today my computer showed a mostly black screen with a message I cant remember but it was something like "System initialization error: could not log in" and after a reboot it was fine but that was annoying4

EDIT: While I myself did not take an image of this, I found one online

I mean, you can hack both quite similarly.

CraftOS - Simply put a floppy disk into the computer. Hacked. GG.

Windows - Create bootable Windows USB, boot from it, open CMD, replace Sticky Keys with CMD, reboot, press Shift 5 times on login screen. Hacked. GG.
