I remember people saying home users should be buying Windows 10 Pro in the first place if they want to tweak their settings.
lol

Does that excuse work now?

It's a much better build than Home or Pro, especially with the newest anniversary builds. They have added a ton of new features and fixed more bugs than I could count. It's very polished compared to the 1511_10586 (non insider preview) build that most people use.

All those thousands of beta testers M$py fired have been replaced by millions of Home and Pro users.

Once again, I agree that MS is using some very shady practices lately but my point still stands for those wanting to use W10 regardless of this. Use the Enterprise edition if some of the restrictions they have added to Pro bother you. Until they start encroaching on Enterprise builds, I will continue to use it. And I don't see them ever doing that for enterprise. Way too much potential money lost if they piss off their enterprise customers. There are no downsides that I can find for using Enterprise, only more options and stability. This is somewhat off-topic so I'll leave it be. I just wanted to put it out there for those that haven't tried 10 yet and want to or any that use it already and want an unrestricted version. The final Anniversary build is due out in a few days so it would be a good time for anyone wanting to test out 10 for the first time or revisit it if they didn't like the initial release. It has changed by a HUGE amount since 1511. And go Enterprise, of course.

I totally agree, if I ever use Win Spy it will be Enterprise. I definitely won't Win LOL (Home) or Win Fail (Pro).

I'm looking forward to that free upgrade period finally ending.

DX 12 isn't worth this. Not even close to being a fair trade off. It seems like these changes are gimping win 10 users more than 8 and 7. I thought they'd wait a day or two after the close off before throwing their captives under the bus.

How does one get his hands on a copy of the enterprise edition?

Gaming companies do support Linux. Deep Silver, Codemasters, Paradox Interactive, Square Enix, Relic Entertainment, 2K Games are the biggest ones.

It's a chicken or the egg scenario. Many gaming publishers don't release linux games because of it's limited market, but people are reluctant to switch to linux because there isn't enough games.

Maybe I should reword it differently. Which one do you think I can get the wife to adopt with least resistance? biggrin.gif

Zorin would be your best bet

Well this is also the OSX approach.
The OS keeps being updated, even big changes from 9 to 10 and soon MacOS, but overall you are tied to the same OS overall. You get updated as you move along.
Windows will be the same. Even if they bring out windows 11, it will be basically just an update to windows 10. And since everything is under automatic updates, and since MS are trying to disable the option to self-control it, you will get updated as time goes by.
