redface Microsoft be fucking up

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?
