                      Yes, vista was really that bad... It was only overshadowed by how shitty windows 8 was.

                      Also, people aren't saying "back when LTT was good" because of your video quality or editing. it was because you tried hard, told the truth, and didn't seem like you were just for-filing contracts with sponsors. you really went in depth with the products, and showed/talked about things other channels didn't. you knew what we wanted(i remember telling friends, "if Linus endorses it, its a go." I wouldn't say that now) Now everything is just an overview. a showcase. for fun. a review like every other tech channel. you have become NCIX. When you allowed yourself to flow, back in the olden days, you were able to achieve a level of product intimacy that no other channels at the time were touching. You were a Buddha of tech knowledge. Through great effort you grew, a learned to be king of the company you built. However, now you are disconnected, and distracted by lordship. Your still a great guy, and a hard worker, but this is the old "LTT" we speak of (not the 50k cameras or whatever you think makes good content these days). I have youtube red, and i still find myself skipping through ads multiple times a video while trying to watch your newer videos. Even some of the "main body" of content in these ad riddled videos are just clever ads themselves. Then I think of how bad it must be for the people without youtube red. Maybe one day, one of your employees will follow the same path, and as a result, we will once again have a great tech channel. Until then, you do you, and keep providing for your family at all costs. RespeKt.

                                6:42 Why are you speaking about yourself in third-person? For what I believe myself to be – a normal person to boot, that seems quite a strange thing to be doing. 🙄

                                  I have never built a PC and I doubt I ever will. I have watched your videos because of you guys and just the presentation. Youre a young guy with a lot of knowledge and itd be easy to come off as a know it all but you dont, youre clear and to the point with often a lot of subtle humour. The tempo of your videos makes it really easy to grasp the more important things even if I dont really grasp all the details of the overall picture. I hope you guys continue with your success for years to come.

                                    Don't doubt. I bet in a couple of years you'll have your hands on an Intel or AMD CPU into that socket of your first ever build.

I finally upgraded last year to a whole new build save for the two gtx 1080, and come January I plan on up grading my gpu's to the RTX series.

                                                                          While I would have figured out how to build a PC without you, your guides made it all super easy and back when I didn't have a plane on what pc to build now I can pull apart any pc and be confidence that I can put it back together with ease because I started with your videos.

                                                                          Now if only I could find a channel like this for saltwater aquariums my fish tank might be as nice as my pc.
