RE: Windows 10
You're never too old to build a Linux box - or convert an old laptop. I run Debian 8 on my desk, my server, and two laptops. It's an easy install from CD or DVD. I also run a Debian derivative on two Raspberry Pis; one of them uses my TV as its display. SleepyHead was an easy build using QTCreator.

BTW, I'm pretty sure that Mac OS-X doesn't phone home nearly as much as Win10 is reported to; on that basis, I would prefer Mac OS-X if I had to have a commercial OS.

RE: Windows 10
I just switched back to Win7 Pro from Win10. Win10 had a few problems with my accounting software and a few other idiosyncrasies. When I tried the Win10 thirty day restore option, it informed me that it hadn't saved the necessary files to restore it back. I lucked out and had imaged my drive just prior to the upgrade. I now consider Win 10 nothing more than Win 8.1 with lipstick.

Good that you did that. I have done the same on both my Windows desktops.

Converting my wife's 12 year old XP machine over to a Linux box is on my list of projects.

I have found the Mac doesn't phone home anywhere near as much as my Win 10 machine does. There are reports that in recent updates, Win 7 and 8 machines are starting to phone home almost as much as the Win 10 cousins. There are some good articles on locking down Windoze to stop all the phoning home.

My Mac is almost 8 years old and the only things I have had to have done was replaced the internal fan (2 yeas ago - full of cat hair) and the hard drive (three months ago). My desktop machine will be 8 in December. Granted, you have to take it somewhere to get it worked on (other than upgrading memory), but I feel it is worth the difference in price when you see how long they last (at least the desktops). I have the most recent OS (and should be able to run the new one in the fall) and running the latest software. Does everything I want it to and then some. It is on most of the time and I just tell it to sleep when I am not using it.

As with any machine (especially if it is your primary) I recommend using a backup. I run Apple's Time Machine and I also have an off site remote backup which I am quite happy with. When I replaced my hard drive, I was back up and operating about an hour and a half after hooking everything back up and restoring from my Time Machine backup.

Here are the Windows updates that phone home:
KB3022345
KB3068708
KB3075249
KB3080149
And the "Biggie"; the Windows 10 upgrade: KB305583
Note: Some of these will be on W7 and some will be on W8.

After deleting these, reboot your computer and perform a "Check for Updates". Go to the listing (Windows will try to install them again) and right click on each one and select "Hide".

In an afterthought, I would almost bet that some genius a M$ will get wise to this practice and rename them in future updates.

I hope the SCO management folks are dying slowly from some horrible, painful, illness, and it become public so we can all enjoy their suffering.

They started playing lawsuit lottery claiming they owned the rights to everything like Unix and Linux. They were using the "patent troll" technique of sending letters about "pay us a payment or we'll tie you up in lawsuits." They used a lot of dirty tricks. I'm really surprised the judge in the case didn't throw some of the SCO folks in jail.

They've mostly been beaten back down into the slime where they belong, but occasionally a bubble of stench bubbles up to the surface.

Good riddance to bad garbage.

When the government decided to add patent protection to software, they really started this country on a long, deadly spiral. We're eventually going to end up not being able to actually produce anything but lawsuits in this country.

Mine too, but I won't shed any tears for them.... even tho the debacle archangel speaks of below was perpetrated by the "SCO Group" who purchased the original SCO and license to distribute from Novell for the express purpose of killing linux. Long live linux!

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

RE: Windows 10
So far so good with XP. Only issue I had was installing Visual Studio software, would put my PC into constant reboot loop >_<

Also had issues updating F&P InfoSmart software as old software would fail to launch. I have a solution but need 8 posts in order to post thread with links.
