Windows 10: Customers petition to demand changes to Windows 10 update practices
What you fail to understand is I'm not having any issues with Win10. And I chose not to use a VM, period. I don't see the need and I don't plan on using one now or in the future.

And what you are likely missing is what VMs can do for you even when you already have the physical install running. You can test many things on a VM without effect on the host OS! VMs are not just about being able to run other versions or OSs but trying things out without seeing the physical install trashed in any way!
It's also a good way to screen for potential malwares loaded into downloads at first sight since you can always nuke the entire VM off of the system with a fast right click before anything spreads if something does get flagged! The tests here however are mostly for taking notes on changes seen between builds while not jumping to replace what is on a drive already. The VMs saw five builds while the 10240 physical installs saw the upgrade to the TH2.
Ah,., again I don't need to use a VM. I've been testing OS's for many years and by now I think I know what I'm doing.

But you win.. here's you cookie.
Why do you think I always keep a second OS drive for looks? When outgrowing XP years back and one newer board no longer supporting 98SE I kept on as the second OS I eventually started keeping a distro on the second until getting into the need for more local storage as well as having a test drive available as the builds themselves as well as hard drive capacities increased over the years.
When I first started out 50mb, 80mb, 100mb, 500mb drives like the one on the second desktop where the common and the 16gb Maxtor was the new thing. I heard complaints from an engineer who at the time complained large drives were too "brittle"! Had a 200mb drive in the old IBM x386 there with 16mb of memory. Now that 16mb is replaced by 16gb in contrast!
I went from 200mb to a pair of 2tb storage drives added along with a pair of 1tb OS drives that may eventually be replaced by the two 2tb when those get replaced by 4 or 5tb size drives! I still have extra space to put on another OS as well! Once I found I had time to get back into testing the 10 builds that first TP VM was already expired and wouldn't even fire up.
The newer VMs allows for trying things out on even a daily basis without the need for a new fresh physical drive type install daily. Maybe that will make more sense to you as why the VMs? And I can still be tending to other things without the main being down for a physical to see something tried out or a new VM set up which is called multitasking things. As for VMs those are simply optional there.
For the last time I don't care what you do and why you do it. I've worked with computers in one form or another since 1979 and I don't need you to tell me what to do at this stage of my life.
So,, again.. you win. Have a cookie:

I just upgraded to Win 10 (RTM build). I have disabled the AV (Defender, why did they go back to the old name?) real time protection because I do not run it, never did and have never gotten a virus (and I've had a computer for 30 years).
Just wondering if anyone else had a Language Pack pending in updates that doesn't actually do anything? Mine's been sitting here for over 24 hours now and doesn't download, it's not a problem as I don't really care for the update but 1) I don't know...
