    Same. I even took my work laptop and formatted and installed 10 on it.

    Windows 8.1, 8.0 and 7...NO WAY I will never ever touch those anymore, unless I absolutely must.
    I can use 7 easily enough, 8/8.1 I avoid like a plague.

    I actually keep all of my personal machines on Insider Fast ring builds. Even the backup laptop that I keep updated but have installed nothing else except Office 2016. But at least it has an SSD.

    I'm about to bring a 3 physical machine into the fold, using older hardware, including a Mechanical HD. That is gonna be sloooooooooooowwww

    I have 4 computers too, 2 servers and 2 laptops, only 1 laptop is for IP testing. Though that is my main computer. The other laptop is for sharing with family, though I mostly use that one too.
    My main desktop, on which I run my VMs, is also my gaming rig. I don't have any servers set up, though.

    I'll keep playing with IP builds as long as I am able.

    Lol @ XP - so true. I have to look things up sometimes because I've forgotten how to do things in XP....

    I don't physically boot 7 anymore, but I keep a VM handy in case I need to do something and / or need to help someone without remote access.

    There is always that....

    lol @ hazard. So true, though.

    - I seem to remember picking up on one of those very early Beta (- or even alpha!) builds..
    - many moons ago..
    - way before tenforums started up..

    - went insider as soon as the reports started to become more optimistic..
    - spent ages on sevenforums as well..

    PS - anybody know where I can find any brief on the RS3 program..?

    Win XP is a safety hazard and should not be used.
    Microsoft has warned people not to use it.
    I am trying to figure out how I can boot The AU, The Creators Update and Linux...

    XP is still perfectly sound for no risk stuff.

    There is no evidence that XP is a hazard.

    Just hearsay.

    It may even be safer now when hackers lost interest in it.

    Microsoft says that it is and are advising people not to use it. I did not just pick this out of the sky.

    Again, unless you happen to be a government institution that still uses XP for a very specific reason, you need to STOP USING WINDOWS XP. I cannot stress this enough. It's not just that the operating system is old and that there are security issues. It's not just that Microsoft has released three successors to XP. It's not just that new machines are more powerful, have better battery life or power efficiency, and are less expensive than ever before. It's that


    Windows XP is not safe to use
    Windows XP is not safe to use.
    Because XP is so old — and popular — its flaws are better known than most operating systems. Hackers have targeted Windows XP with aplomb for years — and that was while Microsoft was providing security patch support. Without that support, users are vulnerable.
    So regardless of the reasons you're still using XP, start preparing to move to a new operating system right now.
    Use it if you like but be aware of the consequences..

    Yep, always run the fast ring versions on my main machine. Never had a real problem but there is always a Macrium image to fall back on.

    The other three comps stay on Au. No reason to waste time on fast tracking them.
