    Does the new Windows 10 Tamper Protection thing cause any problems if you're running a pirated copy? Or does it cause any other sorts of problems?

    No influence noticed by me, not on KMS activated systems, nor on HWID gen. activated systems.

    As long as you don't use an activation method that isn't a virus or malware, and the copy of windows you're using doesn't contain viruses or malware, there is no difference between a pirated installation of windows and a legally activated version of windows.

    A real Win 10 license is worth the money IMO. Win 10 is the second OS MS release that got the right to call itself an Operating system :p. (Win 7 is the other).
    For home use, Office is way ..waaaaay overpriced though. And most people dont need more then outlook and MAYBE word.

    I would not mind using Windows 10 Free with ADs, as it was supposed to be released, I do not even use adblocker. Windows 10 will eventually require and online account, so it will be also subscription based, that will be pretty hard to pirate.

    How can you stand all the ads on webpages? They drive me nuts so I have industrial strength ad blocking. You can't even read an article on half of the web pages because of the floating videos and pop ups.

    The problem is finding the right balance, I want to support webpages, but I do not like aggressive ads, so I am using a poper blocker and anti-tracking, which blocks some google tracking ads, I tried privacy badger, but it blocked too much.
    They are not that bothersome and sometimes they are quite useful, suggesting related ADs for me and that can also help me to evaluate, how is anti-tracker protection working / or not. Facebook is pretty much spot on with targeted ads.
