They used to make one version of windows for office, one version of windows for home users, and need to go back to that standard by making a version optimized for gaming and a version that's better for office tasks. There is no 'I can do it all' OS, and hasn't been since Windows XP

I'd be happy if they just went back to a regular product key instead of tying it to your motherboard. I just got a new MB and now I don't have a valid windows 10.

SLIC 2.1 or w/e? Yeah, that, while being pretty slick in some cases is a thorn in the side of people like you who simply upgraded hardware.


Does windows still do that thing where you can only make, like, 5 hardware changes before having to completely re-validate?
