    Anyway... so I entered a Win 10 Pro key on Pro Edu and got activated as Pro.... then tried to get Pro Edu back by change key .. but nada - it changes to Pro Education but can't activate "can't contact the activation server" ... so Attachment 188463
    I haven't got an iso or a Pro Edu key:

    I have upgraded PRO to EDU and ENT with MSDN keys - always works out ok.

    It's not official --- MSDN won't have it (see the key here to unlock it...)

    It is official and available to subscribers. Sign in to your Visual Studio subscription (former MSDN) at https://my.visualstudio.com and download either Consumer Editions or Business Editions ISO, both contain Pro Education:

    No, I just checked. There are all they keys I will ever need for any W10 edition but not for Pro Education.

    WSL does not work on 17666. Must be the mark of the devil. Here's the error from trying to install Debian GNU/Linux

    Installing, this may take a few minutes...
    Installation successful!
    Please create a default UNIX user account. The username does not need to match your Windows username.
    For more information visit: Linux User Account and Permissions | Microsoft Docs
    Enter new UNIX username: marty
    The I/O operation has been aborted because of either a thread exit or an application request.

    Other distros fail with no text - just a blinking cursor. Ubuntu 18.04 has been added. Thought I was OK when the feature installed without blowing up the machine -hah. Guess I'll report on the Feedback Hub and get a gold star or whatever.

    Maybe the next build won't be as buggy.

    PS Hyper-V is not working either. I will put in the RS4 GA tomorrow.

    Yeah, I guess it needs a local activation server. I don't think it can be activated via MS servers.
