I retired from IBM in 1991 after 34 years. I happen to be a good example of why some folks think IBM stands for I Been Moved. I have not yet scanned all the Replies in this thread but am heartened to see some folks with similar backgrounds. I began my "techie" career thanks to the USN who schooled me in computers used in shipboard Fire Control. Nothing to do with fires, but positions large guns to fire at land targets, other ships and aircraft. Joined IBM after 4 fun years with USN and then enjoyed many different career paths e.g., servicing mainframes, marketing, development, research and management. I currently "play" with my old Dell laptop and a Lenovo desktop. I started with one of the early IBM PCs in '81 and stayed mostly with PC vs Apple since I focus mostly on the technology and not the end user aspect. Both of my current systems are running W-10 Insider Preview Build 14295, one Home and one Pro. The desktop does most of the heavy lifting, MS Office, music and photo organization, email and maintenance of a website hosted elsewhere. The laptop has little of it's own on it but lets me work in my LazY Boy while watching TV. I use Clouds to share data between the two and use a stand alone NAS box for backup.
I like Windows 10 over 7 and 8.1 because I believe it begins transitioning to and from many device types, and interfaces. Hopefully one day we will be able to enjoy a single system that works across all computers with common interfaces.
I have two questions for anyone:
How do you enter more than one system in the profile?
And, if I replace my laptop with a new one, can I "move" my Win 10 Pro system over to it? The replacement system may be a laptop/tablet but would most likely have Win 10 Home on it from the vendor. I enjoy the "Insider" program and the Pro copy of 10 and would like to keep them. I have no problem losing any personalization or data on the old laptop.
