...but the problem is, win 8 was so bad in so many ways.

You're right, I e been meaning to .linuxize my ones for years, but I'm just very lazy....

I am on 7. Haven't wasted my time with Windows 10, and probably never will.

8 is a travesty .... 10 is in some ways better. Better onscreen text rendering, at least, easier on the eyes...

the big problem with 10 is that it logs everything. if you turn off the logging it just turn it back on in the next updqate. right now I am using fedora 23 and i am really liking it.

My work is a Linux environment. Most of my colleagues have OSX for personal use. It's a good option, if you have a bit of money to spend.
