No need for that...early adopters get burned with OS'es.  Best to wait until an OS has aged...some turn to wine, others (most?) are just vinegar.

No doubt just more layers of BS on top of what used to be a pretty straightforward OS.

And more telemetry. Microsoft should pay people to use it.

Windows 10 is one big steaming malodorous pile of spyware. Alas, I'm in the IT business and am forced to deal with it at times, but stick with various flavors of Linux as much as possible
