I have been using Win 10 for several months and have had few issues. It does not appear to spend all its time phoning home and you can control some of it.

I have up graded all but one computer to Win 10. I cannot say that all was a picnic - use an install "1511" disk to install from. Direct online did not go so well.

I also tried Linux Mint - really wanted it to work. No go for many reasons - after several months of use/testing. Hence, I have settled on Win 10.

I have only ONE reason to own a Windows machine: RMSexpress/WINMOR,which does not play well with the Linux I love. Other than that, it's CW (no computer needed) of a rare FLdigi contact with friends who don't speak Morse.

MS lost me with endless delays during updates, delays with mandatory reboots, killing drivers for peripherals after an update and lock-ups. When I was on a satellite link, it cost a BUNDLE to run Windows.  Linux - has been good to me.
