    MDL is a very good site for the subject matter that it covers. That linked thread there runs to a mere 112 pages, tho' . . . .

    I have a colleague who did upgrade to Windows 10 yesterday,everything went smoothly and free.If it fails, the last method is to uninstall the old version and then install a new Windows 10.But I do nt recommend using the last method. It s less than a last resort, or do nt make any dangerous attempts.

    Can reuse Windows 7 key from dead PC or laptop for fresh Windows 10 installation.
    I have done it on 2 PC. In one system, I installed Windows 10 Home and I activated it with Windows 7 Pro key from a dead laptop.
    It automatically upgraded to Pro.

    It's funny, I just bought an Ice Lake laptop and putting together a QSV comparison with these new processors and was going to write about this switch, because Win 10 has less than enthused me as it comes preinstalled on the laptop I bought.

    I will be posting the QSV test this weekend, I think people will be surprised.

    I recently applied O&O ShutUp 10 (with a fairly rigorous selection for turning things OFF) to one of my Win 10 boxes. Bye-bye Cortana ! I hope this put the kibosh on all of the important privacy nasties, but that may turn out to be more of an article of faith, unless I gain some major skills with Wireshark. Despite various published doomsday warnings about using this, Spybot Anti-Beacon, or other solutions of that type, three weeks in there have been no signs of any bad consequences. As to what MS likes to tout as "security", I've always found that to be overblown. (And I've trod some dark alleys on the Internet . . . .) I'm going to apply this regimen to a couple other Win 10 boxes, and try to regain control over updates that I may not want. But, in case they take this OS in even more unacceptable directions, I've already disconnected a couple XP boxes from the outside world, can still resort to that for Win 7 or 10 should it become necessary, and Linux Mint 20 is starting to look like more of a plausible alternative than many of the various distros I've taken a quick look at over the years. The main issue there is that most of the specialty apps we like and use here on VH run just peachy on 7, but maybe with diminishing returns after that. Emulation has limitations.

    Bashing Windows 10 is fun 😇

    Windows 10 users are grumpy over forced updates and unwanted apps

    from another forum: a possible signpost pointing towards the future of Windows ?

    https://www.zdnet.com/article/linux-based-windows-makes-perfect-sense/

    I think this is a bit of a stretch, at least in terms of its happening anytime real soon.
    But it is interesting.
