    I was at one time a Microsoft MVP, which then transitioned to what is now Windows Insider MVP. One perk of that was a free TechNet subscription, now know as Visual Studio Enterprise. With that comes Product Keys for pretty well every OS Microsoft ever released, and all versions of Office. If I remember correctly I have test run them all. Some were a very brief look see if I'm honest.
    Everybody has there likes and dislikes. I loved Windows 2000 and went kicking and screaming to XP. I used if for a while but honestly never really liked the experience. And that's pretty well been the trend with each new OS after it. I'm running Windows 10 but honestly find it uninspiring. It does do what I need it to do, but it's been ages since something Microsoft did it to it made me
    I dropped out of the MVP program so my free ride is over. If there is no free upgrade from 10 to 11 I'll just stay on Windows 10.

    I'm a big Raspberry Pi enthusiast. That has taken me to the Dark Side, Linux. It just kind of reminds me of my early Dos days. I can get around and usually do what I need doing but I'm a Linux Noob. On the plus side it has got me into programing in Python which for the most part nas been a lot of fun. I find it very rewarding and its keeping this old brain active.

    They gave it away, I didn't think anybody paid for it.
    It was a free upgrade if you did an upgrade form an WIn 7, or WIn 8.1 that you paid for. You also paid for it if you purchased a new pc.

    There is NO WAY Microsoft will do that.
    Yes, indeed--that is not in the cards. Man, rumors are just so wacky and irrational these days. They don't even have to make sense anymore!

    I read the article, and took it as an intentional joke.

    I'm not one of these people who use the OS as an application end in itself. The idea of just endlessly tinkering with Windows, and its auxiliary programs like Word Pad, Paint, Edge, etc., bores me silly, actually. No matter what platform I've used over the past decades, the OS for me is always primarily a gateway to the third-party software and hardware I really want to buy and run. For me, that is the chief value of an OS. Win10 does that job better than any other OS on the planet--supports more third-party software and hardware, as well as maintains a fair bit of backwards compatibility with some older programs--like 30-year-old games, for instance. I still own a few, actually. Win10 is thin (getting bulkier though) and light compared to many earlier versions of Windows and doesn't often get in my way when I'm running the software I want to run. It does the job but doesn't call attention to itself while doing its thing...but like I say, Microsoft is letting the feature-creep run amok again, and many already think it far too bloated.

    But this Win11 thing seems really goofy, so far. Seems Microsoft has to make the licensing seamless with Win10--retail versions are supported for the life of the user and OEM versions for the life of the motherboard, etc. If not, I can already see the lawsuits flying. It just seems strange.
