Windows 10 isn't without it's faults, the constant issues with windows explorer needing to be randomly restarted. all the time has been a real pain, other than that it's run very stable.

This brings me to the next one, which is a total lie. I dont have windows 10 pro, but I do have windows 10 education (which isn’t an option of the pcpartpicker website) which I procured a free version thanks to my university. However, I was planing on adding a partition soon for a Linux distribution. I’ve got a Ubuntu system running, but I was wondering if any of you pros out there could recommend me a better Linux distribution. But Windows is great too, don’t get me wrong, but there’s is just something about a UNIX system that makes a boy wobble at the knees

Full retail copy, didn't want to go the grey market Kinguin route. I have a beautiful, amazing, spectacular slip of paper with a CD key on it. Also, the world's cheapest all-plastic USB drive. But at least it's 16GB.

Painful purchase, but I wanted networking capabilities.

I started with Windows 7 Ultimate, then I upgraded to Windows 10 Pro, so I didn't have to pay a damn dime for a license of my own. But it did come with one problem, when the upgrade succeeded, my Windows 10 Pro wasn't activated, so I got onto the phone with Microsoft, and they activated my OS, so I now have a genuine copy.

Purchased this becfause it was strangely less expensive to get a full copy of the game on a USB drive than the expected DVD images.
Glad I made the choice. the USB 3.0 drive makes setup and installing the OS refreshingly fast over the optical drive, and I didn't have a drive to spare for an OS install. Fresh install, drivers, and a run through of ShutUp10, and Windows 10 Pro has been a fantastic OS for this new hardware.

Full of bloat and spyware. Required for using my processor as it doesn't support the OS I wanted. If I had a choice I would be using Windows 7 still.

Not sure why I wanted the full version over the OEM or super cheap $15 versions. Bit the bullet and paid up. Wish the USB worked right out of the box; the files on it were dated like January 2017. Not sure if it was the old version that kept it from installing or what. Anyways it was no problem to download fresh and just use the keys from the box (picked it up in the mall at the Microsoft store).

The only competitor this operating system has, under this price range, is Mac OS, who recently took a big hit... and left Windows the only average consumer graded operating system to use, and it can be free. Either use it with a watermark, or become people like me, who used to be a student and still have a valid copy of Windows 10 Pro license, for free.
