Made the switch over to Win 10.  Nothing is on fire or covered in bees yet.

Was in the process of doing that yesterday until I got the notice that my SEP had to be uninstalled -- of course I don't have the serial code and despite my best efforts perusing the registry I couldn't locate the serial key, hashed or otherwise...  :-/

Bros played Battleborn.  Bros had fun.  Far from a bad game so not sure where the hate is coming from.  Bros will play again. 

I wanted to join you guys tonight, but I got home late. If you guys play another time I'll make a point of being around.

 

 

Hmm, I should probably come to a decision pretty soon as to whether I want to upgrade to Win10 or not.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who procrastinated deciding until the last minute.

Grab the Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder:

That should help out w/ finding your Windows CD Keys.

Motoki: If you were MysterD you would wait for a 75% off sale. And tell everyone about it. Repeatedly. 
 

MysterD: We don't play games on CAG; we backlog 'em. No wonder we have no time to play games! All we do is keep buying games; run games idly for cards; keep backlogging games; & talk about games on CAG Forums + gaming forums like it.

You guys see a bear, you just have to poke it, huh?

Well, truth be told it's not a very dangerous bear...

Make sure you turn off all the nonsense in Settings - Privacy and set data collection to "basic" since there's no "none" setting. It's hard to turn off Cortana, but you can turn off her data collection pretty easily and stop her from listening to your mic if you have one. I had to make a local account to stop the personalized ads. There's a setting here you can turn off, but I find local accounts are safer. Then of course there's the Digital Advertiser's Alliance Consumer Choice Page that lets you opt out of data collection for 128 companies.

Information collection is like mining for gold these days, and that's basically all Windows 10 does. There are only a few nice features it has over 7, but 7 will be discontinued before long in favor for these profitable upgrades so you might as well while it's still free.

More changes in the Windows Anniversary update, due August 2nd, are being discovered. After yesterday's news about Cortana not able to be turned off in the Windows Anniversary update, certain registry entries and group policies have been found to be updated with a note stating that they only apply to Enterprise and Education editions. Win 10 Pro users will no longer be able to turn off policies such as the Microsoft Consumer Experience, Show Windows Tips, Do not display the lock screen, and Disable all apps from the Windows Store.
