That's one of my major issues with 10, drivers. I use a Ducky mechanical keyboard and all I've heard about 10 is driver issues. I've done some research and it appears my keyboard probably won't work...

58 year old here, with grey hair. I moved on to Windows 10. I had issues with some of the early builds. It's been smooth sailing recently though. I do my install, let Windows update do its thing,...

Enterprise editions are exempt from the free upgrade offer by the way. They won't get the GWX APP. Plus, if those corporate PC's upgrade via WUS, the IT guy will block GWX from ever reaching...

I think you'll find that its like it is now. You can pretty well swap anything you want except the motherboard. A CPU swap may trigger it, but it shouldn't be a big deal to reactivate by phone if...
