    Five years later, it's still an OS you don't need to buy.
    Five years later, KMS still works.
    Five years later, free upgrade is still available.

    Nope.

    I'm still using 1809 because everything after that is unstable garbage that sucks. 1809 suffers from the design flaws that all Win10 versions have, but it is has the least suckage.

    I would agree that it does get better (mostly). But off the top of my head, I can't think of anything that has been added or updated in the last 5 years that was really a major improvement. Nothing earth shaking, nothing revolutionary. I am running the latest production version of Windows 10, but I feel fairly certain that I could get by just fine with Windows 8.1 or 7 or even Vista, as long as my hardware was supported.

    In fact, the KMS protocol has not been changed since 2013.
    Perhaps Microsoft fired all the people that could renew the system!

    Ignorance and stupidity probably is.
    I don't use "AdMachina10" but my friend came the other day with a sound issue. Damn driver update was the culprit. And this issue replicate ad infinitum I have read on many forums. Poor girl lost 4 days of online school sessions. This never happened to me on prior Winblows versions. How about that?

    and after all this time it still locks up on me on outlook mail or facebook if i let it set for a while it seems to correct itself, i have plenty of memory so thats not it, internet speed is good, i think its related to a combination of the edge browser and windows update. i see where MS has said dont use CC any more for cleaning up your browser or registry !

    Generally been happy with it. I certainly don't miss 7 at all the way I did when 8 was around. Its just the visual consistency that's maddening. Only instability I ever had outside of an Insider build was the high latency issue from...1903 was it?
