Agree 100%. MS has also relied very heavily on the OEMs for a long long time to bring in revenue every year with new hardware announcements, thus new licenses, but PC and desktop sales have been declining for sometime in lieu of non-Windows smartphones and tablets. MS missed the boat here and therefore a ton of revenue. Additionally the Enterprise customer has been very reluctant to throw huge chucks of capital at new hardware for several years now and have been either velcroved to XP or W7. The Enterprise full price licenses are an enormous revenue cow for MS and they do not get the free upgrade to W10. MS just recently kicked the OEMs in the head with the Surface Book announcement, so it appears that MS is starting to sever that relationship as the PC/desktop market continues its decline. IF you want a W10 laptop/tablet and phone - get it directly from the MS Store - cut out the middle man and the OEM bloat. I think MS declared war - but it has gone somewhat unnoticed. W10 is the flagship so they are pushing it with gusto - even to those that do not want it.

To make matters even more interesting I heard a fishing tell the new Z170 boards and compatible cpu's for them will exclude win-7 installing
So M$ has been in Intel's ear for a moving on to 10.

Maybe not. This Asus board will support Win 7.

Yep looks like an old style keyboard or mouse port here like the fishing story said might be needed :/

Again, maybe not. Just because the board has a legacy PS/2 port doesn't necessarily mean it has to be used. USB 2.0 headers are on the MOBO so USB 2.0 can be made available on a PCI cover in case current keyboards and mice won't work on USB 3.0.

Just for excrement and merriment, I pulled the Logitech Unifying Receiver for my M525 mouse from its USB 2.0 port and plugged it into a USB 3.0 port to see if it work there. It did (which I expected but it's nice to get confirmation).

Acer, Asus and Toshiba will have a lot of problems with the ramp up of the MS Store and specifically the tight relationship that MS has with Intel. HP, Dell and Lenovo made deals with MS as soon as they got the heads up on W10 - even though the GWX free upgrade for home users eroded their revenues in a big way. Lenovo is probably best suited, due to their product mix, geo-location and user base, more apt to weather the storm. They offer Linux pre-installed on some laptops, have a smartphone division, still offer W7 on the existing line (and not just as a downgrade) and have Android as well as Windows Cloned tablets - they have buttered their wontons on both sides, so it doesn't matter which side hits the floor. MS is playing hardball and some of the mid-sized OEMs may not have the fire power to hang around.

I've said it before, but until Linux, and and its varients, get on board with the gaming sites, then thats when MS will really start losing "customers"..

Or someone develops a Linux program that will do a better job of running Windows or Mac programs than Wine. I would be all over that like stink on skunk.
