Windows 10 Build 9926

When you go to a hospital and see nothing but sick people, do you conclude the whole world is sick?
The Hospital metaphor is great btw.
Very funny and precise

Windows 7 is one of the most stable OSes I've ever used. Go for it !

I don't want to run out of activations when I do get my PC.
Though I've never did used a Mac, or ran bootcamp, I'm pretty sure you still have to activate Windows once you install it. I really can't see why this wouldn't be the case..

Then you have 30 days of trial where everything will work, but in System panel (where it says the activation code) will have the countdown with the time you have left before it locks down and deactivates updates and other stuff (and murders your patience with incessant popups). You can also "rearm" this countdown up to two times legally. Here explains how.

Owing to the fact that I used "once you install it", it still needs to be activated, as you pointed out. That even if you "ream the countdown up", you'll still have to activate it, which is what I said.

semantics I suppose, but ok

Win 7 Pro 64-bit 7601

I somehow read that that as "you need to activate it to install it".
Sorry for confusion.
