    Also what is forgotten is that if Skylake/Win10-Only takes hold, there will also be other competing OSs that can run on Skylake. But who knows what Windows 10 will even be like in five or so years. Heck, I might even like it. Vista, 8, XP and 2000: I hated all of them at one time or another. You tend to come around to things in time.

    With all due respect, why are you posting and seeking advice on a Windows 10 forum?
    well because you guys on the win 10 forums would know most about the OS (presumably) and could offer insight and advice as to how bad/deep/entrenched the data logging and mining is

    obviously linux/mac os isn't known for gaming, but that's wasn't what i started the topic with

    pls dont let win 10 be your identity, discussing it and its issues shouldnt be held as an attack unto your person

    There aren't any issues to worry about, especially once you get comfortable, remove the tinfoil hat, and go on enjoying your computer for the intended uses you have for it.

    I agree.. this is speculating on what will happen 5 years from now. Right now I just want to use my PC do get things done and have fun.

    I'd be extremely surprised to see how Microsoft could possibly restrict older Windows versions running on newer CPUs. Generally, there are no compatibility issues amongst processors and operating systems - they're all x64 nowadays and I don't see that changing any time soon. There are sometimes issues with chipset drivers but there isn't really a CPU driver per se. There's usually a way to make it work. I wouldn't be concerned about it. Eventually, yes, Windows 7 will be a security risk and there won't be a way to plug all the holes. At work, it's absolutely forbidden to run Windows XP on our network - it's too susceptible to malware. Eventually, you'd find applications don't work with Windows 7, drivers would be very difficult to find, compatibility would be the biggest issue, not the CPU.
