Re: Free Win10

I mentioned this some time ago (so it shouldn't be news here).  I have performed an upgrade once every few months since and it has always activated.  I'll post if I ever find it stops working.

Re: Free Win10

Considering the Creators Update was officially released just a fortnight ago it is news!
I must have been really bad in a previous life as this was my 3rd ISP in a row that used lithium.
Now you're stuck with me because my new ISP doesn't run a forum Cheesy

Re: Free Win10

I'm still waiting for Microsoft to offer something that's an upgrade from Windows 7.

Since, unlike Win8, it is possible to duck the Metro tablet stuff almost completely and just work from a normal Win desktop, I am happy to trade that very minor snag for the (even) greater stability of Win10.

Re: Free Win10

@St3 - I've used all flavours of Windows (excluding WCool and never felt frustrated until I have to use W10 -maybe I'm just getting too old. Smiley

Unfortunately, I can't tweak my mums machine, my sister also uses it as we share responsibility for mum's financial affairs after her stroke, and sis has learned how to use the thing 'as it came'.
