    Definitely get 10

    Going to keep running it as a VM until release and just testing/looking at the new features, as soon as it available to buy (is that the right word if its free?) I will be upgrading my 8.1

    Hi there

    Actually an interesting and AFAIK not illegal way will be to get an update for a W7 VM and then clone the updated VM. I wonder though if one then did a V2P (Virtual to Physical) conversion to a REAL machine would it activate successfully !!!!

    I'll have to try this at the appropriate time.

    I'll certainly update my 8.1 machine(s) -- can't see any reason to keep 8.1 if W10 works OK as it seems to be doing now.

    Cheers

    I think you are just polluting your system. Codec packs are terrible.

    How do you play anything on Windows without them?
    I have not installed a single third party codec pack in years on any of my Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 computers. I have never had an audio or video file which could not be played with VLC Player out of the box without any additional codecs.

    Among other softwares I'm using:

    CorelDRAW X7 x64
    x7 has also been reported as a security flaw make sure you get the patch if and when it's released,
    Corel software vulnerabilities let attackers execute malicious code on - Windows 7 Help Forums

    On another note if I did need a special codec.. I would also use vlc media player,
    Fortunately wmp plays all my files and I don't even need vlc

    I can't recall if I ever had playback problems after I started using W7.

    OTOH, VLC updates regularly break other functions/tools in the program itself.
    VLC v2.0.8 was the last version that worked 100% for the purposes I use it for.

    I assume that you don't have any media using MKV or FLAC.

    Hi,
    None that I know of,
    I do have 1 breaking bad series via iTunes that won't play but I've seen it a hundred times so there's no priority on it,
    Not sure if vlc would play it or not ?
    Cheers.

    VLC


    I just stumbled upon this article:
    Vulnerabilities have been discovered in some versions of the popular VLC media player which may allow a cyberattacker to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code.
    ZDNet - Charlie Osborne
    VLC vulnerabilities exposed | ZDNet

    The comments on that article seem to indicate that it isn't a VLC issue, but related to some dll (libavcodec_plugin).
