    So, if you get a new machine and have a retail disk it is transferable, but can only be activated on one machine is how I understand it.
    It was always, one license, one machine except for special group licenses.
    If you install anew on another disk than yes you'd have to confirm with MS about license but if you cloned system disk, no.

    I think, they are so careful to say "life of the device" because they are looking at life cycle of all devices (phones, tablets, etc.). Their intention of Windows 10 SaaS - Software as a Service - where, after a certain point in time, they will charge, kind of like the O365 subscriptions. Just my thought, nothing concrete to base that on.

    MS will have to come clean with conditions attached to various options soon, otherwise there will be backlash and outcry. It would have to be spelled clean as soon as they start selling windows.

    Another mystery update, it's not labeled Security and can't find what it's about. Went thru without a hitch. Did anybody notice how fast defender updates are coming, maybe even 5 times a day ?

    Windows 10 10586 PRO RTM

    When right clicking network icon to change adapter settings not working anymore. The window opens but when trying to disable/enable adapters the screen just flashes and nothing happens. Have to go device manager to effect changes. Anybody else experiencing this? This happened after yesterdays updates.

    . . .where is it posted that this build was sent to manufactures. . .please.

    It's practically axiomatic, manufacturers have to get it well in advance of the date OS has to start selling on, it takes time to provide OS on their devices.
