$0.000000000000000000

Windows 10. An advertising billboard and spy machine. As a total after thought Windows 10 pretends to be operating system.

Your country must have pretty bad deflation if you can convert your currency to that many decimal places of a dollar.

Most of us here paid nothing for Windows 10, so whilst you wouldnt we didnt

If you use a unregistered Windows 10 version, you will lose features eventually. It's not like in Reaper.

Apart from it being against the EULA in Reaper as well, when you go on using it after the initial 2 months.
I have used Win7 in virtual machines like that. Eventually an annoying message after system startup is being displayed, but that was it, it continued to function. The only disabled feature was desktop wall paper selection.

This is from a Shill for Microsoft. Even she admits that Windows 10 is an advertising billboard:

Wouldn't use it for free. Wouldn't use Windows 10 if I got paid to use it. I say that as a Windows [ now 7] user since 1995. Of course as a shill Mary Jo Foley has to spin it to make Microsoft look ok. aLONG with her fellow Microsoftie shill, Ed Bott.

Looking for MS Office 2019. Home office student or home office business is fine. Is there a place to get it cheaper? Do they have BF sales?

Been using LibreOffice for some time but it feels clunky. Had some problem with PivotTables carrying over from XLSX file too.

You can actually change the wallpaper, at least on Win10. You just have to open the picture you want in the windows photo viewer thingy, right click, and choose "use as desktop background". However, I'd probably consider that one a bug that might get fixed eventually.

All I'm saying is, both Microsoft and the Reaper people are not dumb, they know people are doing this and still let them continue.

Just to be clear, I have never done this and never will. I just read about it while putting together things for my theoretical new PC. Win10 isn't that expensive for a software that one would probably use for many thousands of hours.

Often it's necessary in software testing environments where you might need almost every version of the OS, freshly installed before each test - eventually those serial numbers no longer activate because they have been installed a zillion times or booted on virtual machines with different hardware configurations :)

I always get my Office 365 Personal sub at Amazon for about 45 to 47 € a year, which is a bargain IMO.
