    I'm a fan of Windows 10. I'm not sure why it gets all the negative crap it does. My son put together a new computer yesterday. New motherboard, processor, memory and video card. We re-used the hard drives. I figured we would likely have to reinstall everything, go through the update crap etc. I was surprised when we fired it up Windows took a couple of minutes and had it all figured out. All we had to do was sign into his Microsoft account to validate.

    I've tried this with 98, XP and 7 and it never worked for me. I'm impressed.

    That's good news. It is always nice to have a project come together and work like it should. Apparently Win 10 is right for you.

    I got mine through the free update from 7 on my Toshiba satellite. No problems really after my getting used to the lay out. One thing is I can't turn off the notifications selectively. I keep getting the M/S acct problem that I just don't care about. My H/D croaked and had to get a new one. Lucky I had an external drive to save to. Everything came back just not the way I had it arranged before. My wife bought me an Apple to replace my Toshiba but I don't like it so I stuck with the Toshiba. The Apple just sits waiting. 10 is Good for me.

    The company I work for gave me a gift a few years back for 40 years of service. Previously they gave gift cards but 2 months before my anniversary, they went to a gift catalog. I didn't really need another laptop but it was either that or a set of golf clubs. I consider golf to be just a reason to wear ugly clothes. It works okay but Microsoft cut content again with it. I use it as a back up system if something happens to my regular computer. You're right in that it works okay but takes some getting used to.
