I have converted my main machine to Linux, and aside from work, I am largely done with Windows and Microsoft. This business about mandatory Win10 updates was the final straw. That hands control of my machine over to "keyloggin" MS, to do whatever it wishes until caught doing it. I have a responsibility not to agree to that. MS certainly has not earned my trust to any significant extent.
Yes, there is a tool to turn off the mandatory updates. But there is no guarantee it will work with Win10 RTM, and there is no guarantee MS will not intentionally break it at some time in the future. 12 years of product life is a long time.
After searching some two dozen distros, I am happy to have found LinuxLite. The interface is very much like Windows 7, and it performs wonderfully even on older or smaller hardware, enjoys widespread ubuntu support, is an aesthetic joy, and with WINE will run almost any Windows-based program. I put LL on three older units that were either performing badly with Windows or lacked the proper Windows license, and each time the result was little short of spectacular. The last friend I did this for was ecstatic.
As things went, as I was thinking about all this, my own computer lost its mind this morning. After a blue screen it literally forgot who it was, reverting back to its old Vista name from years ago, and developing all manner of low-level faults. It clearly was time for a reinstall, one way or the other.
After deliberating, I decided to move forward. "The other" won. I'm now running LinuxLite on my main tower, and it's smooth, solid and pretty. MS's highly suspect practices finally drove me off the fence.
Good luck to all, whatever your decision is.
