    With all the loopholes, potholes, and sink holes in Windows 10, there is no way in heck, that I want that thing running on my PC as my everyday OS. I do have copies of it running on several laptops, for testing purposes, so I can learn how to make it safer, and more user friendly, for my customers, but it will never run on my main PC. That's just a fact of life!

    Cheers Mates!
    May I ask what other OS you run that doesn't harvest data.

    Given the respect I feel for TM's astute self, I'm wondering which issues pose concern. I have not noticed any. Although I do run the Insider versions of Win 10 in partitions separate from my main systems.

    There was no poll option for "kept on some, not on others", but that's my position.

    • It seems like a great update for my former 8.1 tablets. My house is now officially "Windows 8 free" which feels like I've finally exorcised some evil spirit.
    • I'll also keep it on my HTPC as some modern apps are reasonably well suited for that purpose.
    • I have an old cedar trail tablet that is stuck on Windows 7 unless a decent unofficial driver is ever released for the GMA3600 series graphics adapters.
    • I also have an old Pentium-M laptop that seems to struggle with Windows 10 far more than it ever did with Windows 7 - I'm not really sure why, possibly Windows 10 is heavily multi-core optimized? I guess I'll be restoring my Windows 7 backup for that.
    • My work laptop and desktop will be remaining on Windows 7. I have a few apps which I know are not Windows 8x/10 compatible, but the real reason is that these systems are simply too important to be messing with. I have Windows 10 installed on a second disk on my desktop if I ever need it for some Windows 10-only thing, and have done the upgrade on a cloned disk for my laptop just so the free license is registered.

    It's always better to stay with latest technology. There is an irritation for Windows 10 Home users - compulsory Windows Update, which I have overcome by tweaking the Registry. I am sure this will be rectified in later versions.

    Not so sure. Tech companies are now very sensitive to being blamed for security-related incidents; doubt MS will back off on that. Also most who get to support users or a multitude of systems find the infinite hardware/software/settings/tweaks and downright user booboos disconcerting - there's a strong incentive to push back against version diversity. Chrome and Firefox both are strongly biased to force updates, for example.

    I think a setting "only download only install this time window" would be enough, as it's the diversion of resources and in the case of reboots, time, that actually inconvenience me. Updates, at least from MS, rarely out-right break anything, at least on the systems here

    Also, I've never had any issue with getting MS to at least TRY to do something, when some particular update DOES break something. I've even seen them take in, validate, and publish user-created work-arounds and even once, a patch.

    And, if one can live with WIFI only, no Ethernet, there IS a 'metered connection' setting that can be used to block the updates. http://lifehacker.com/enable-metered...tes-1723316525 For PRO versions, there's also gpedit http://www.guidingtech.com/48828/del...es-windows-10/

    Perhaps we can persuade MS to include gpedit for HOME versions also...
