    I suspect they forgot to write it in the BIOS/UEFI firmware or they’re just too cheap.

    The security measures might have something to do with keylogging issues.

    Also, you can't use ALT Codes without the Numeric Keypad.

    I personally don't. It was exhausting to go from Preview to Preview build of Windows 8 as it was every six or so months; literally upheaving and doing a clean install every six months from Developer to Consumer to Release Preview and RTM trial then to final RTM. I've now ran my single install of Windows 8 for almost a year.

    The way Windows 10 is going, it's too rapid pace release to be somewhat stable enough to use, the latest build is kind of hit and miss in stability. Windows 8 for me was uber stable even from DP. Windows 10 has been a bit more buggy, but that's because MAJOR new features are being built.

    Yesterday I Macrium Imaged my Windows 7 partition to external, then deleted it and recovered the space into TP. I hadn't been back to Windows 7 since early October.
