    Propaganda to make people upgrade to Widows 10. Don't fall for it. Windows 10 blows.

    Windows 10 has its own security issues that can fill pages and pages and that is what is known about it and the back doors installed by design let alone what hackers have discovered because of the sloppy coding.

    Spot on chief. The ONLY way your computer is hack-proof is to NEVER connect it to the internet. Use one computer to play and email on the net and another stand alone for business. Sneaker net between them. (35 years in IT)

    Do what I do. I run windows on VMWorkstation or VirtualBox as a virtual machine for only those packages that stubbornly refuse to support other operating systems. All other uses I use various Linux distributions or Mac depending upon what I need to do.

    I heard a thought long time ago.

    I just use it and reboot.

    I am now starting to think the same.
