    Just hearsay.
    Microsoft says that it is and are advising people not to use it. I did not just pick this out of the sky.
    MS also advises using W10.

    Avecto notes that Windows 10, dubbed the most secure operating system ever by Microsoft, had the largest total number of reported vulnerabilities of all supported versions of Windows. Windows 10 was affected by 395 different vulnerabilities, compared to 265 for Windows 8.1 for instance.

    When I worked in Denmark, we would get a lot of Finns visiting Esbjerg, and they certainly know how to party - I guess that is all you can do in middle of a long winter (apart from increasing the population) :-D.

    We must remember that Windows 10 is first of all, almost a complete rewrite of Windows. Second thing to keep in mind is that Windows 10 has a lot more features built in compared to any previous Windows version.

    And finally, as the reports states:
    A simple change, switching a user account from administrator to standard, or creating a second user account with standard rights and using it predominantly, has a huge impact on computer security.
    99.999% of all tasks done daily on an OS could and should be run under a NON-Admin account. Especially if you do something over the interweb, like web browsing. This is how it has always been and will always be. If it's Windows, Linux (& Android), OS X or any OS known to mankind, using a mere mortal account when no administrator rights are needed, is the way to go. Any computer user should know this. In my opinion there should be written laws for this. The stupidest thing you can do, is to run your computer account elevated at all times. No wonder they get hacked.

    Yes, practicing recreation keeps us very happy. In Summer and Winter. I prefer Spring.

    Great post, made me thinking as I always use Windows as admin, mind to share a good tutorial here on TF about account-options, but I do need all rights for performing apps like power shell as administrator etc.

    Thanks.

    But you can be logged in as a Standard user, and start Powershell as an Admin user. Some tasks can not be run even this way, but for those tasks, it's better to have computer disconnected from internet or all security features and nagging prompts enabled. These task would be things related to managing the OS itself, which you should not need to do every day.

    Those are very specific tasks that should not need internet at all.
    On Administering Servers, the best thing you can do is to block everything from and to the internet, unless you are absolutely certain it is secure. Then you can white list that particular Domain/IP.

    EDIT: Of course services that are intended to serve users over the internet should NOT be blocked, but that is nothing you would/should have on a Windows 10 Workstation anyways.

    It's not the Admin account per se that protects your system but UAC... if that's turned off anyone can include elevation in a script to run as Admin (and no UAC prompt if off) ... the difference with other OS' is that UAC is built into the root/admin account.
