The only computers I've bought that have Windows 10 preinstalled are laptops, and I don't see a separate entry anywhere as a payment for Windows 10 (usually Home). In fact I've read that the fact that the computer has W10 plus all kinds of preinstalled garbage actually lowers the price. When I buy a laptop, the first thing I do is disable secure boot, kill off the pre-installed "authorized" bootup version in the BIOS, then remove all partitions and start from scratch with a pirated version of W10 Pro. I have yet to see a laptop available for sale with a clean hard drive.
As usual, your comment was very clever. I'll have to find serious arguments. Actually you don't see separate entry to pay for your embedded windows 10 indeed. That doesn't mean you don't pay for it.
When I bought my computer 5 years ago, I chose a computer with freedos. One year later, the same configuration with windows 10 was more expensive.
Now let's take 2 similar computers, same brand, same price, same processor on 2 different websites. But the first one has freedos, the second one has windows 10. I consider that the 1st one should be more expensive because it has a geforce rtx 2060, the second one has a gtx 1660 ti. The first one has a 256Gb ssd vs 512Gb for the second one though. Note that the second computer is a promotion product too.
The rtx 2060 card is 70€ more expensive, and the 512 Gb ssd is only 30€ more expensive. Therefore, the second computer should be 40€ less expensive. Is it the price for windows 10? Maybe.
First computer:https://www.ldlc.com/fiche/PB00279525.html
second computer: https://www.fnac.com/PC-Portable-Msi-GP75-Leopard-9SD-1070FR-17-3-Intel-Core-i7-16-Go-RAM-512-Go-SSD/a13808134/w-4


Note that a new version of windows 7 will be available soon too.

Microsoft Windows / Re: Windows 7 Support

Ever since I've been playing around with computers I've seen the same resistance to upgrades. When Windows 3.0 came out in 1990, many people wanted to stick to plain DOS. The same happened with every operating system upgrade since then, ranging from Windows 95 all the way to Windows 10. The only upgrades people did skip (justifiably) were Windows ME and Vista since they were 2 major flops.

When will people understand that can't stay on your old operating system forever? Eventually you MUST upgrade, there is no alternative, so better sooner than later. Even those people stuck with old hardware must eventually upgrade. It will ge to the point where new software will not run on their old devices.

If you are buying a brand new computer, I advise you to buy something with Freedos (a windows 10 home preinstalled license costs roughly 110$), and you can use Maher's windows 7 or windows 10 (available in the previous message) then.

Does Dosbox even work with Windows 10?
I think Fuj's pinball uses Dosbox. And it works on windows 10. So Dosbox can run on windows 10.

To shadow.97: I will release a finale, and super light version for windows 7 x64. I think there is no need to install extra security updates, as long as you don't use internet explorer, but another browser. It's a way for Microsoft to earn money since they charge exorbitant fees for this support.

Note that the new version of windows 10 x64 is ready (it's being uploaded). The latest updates as well as new programs are included. I repacked some programs but the installers were not installing Startmenu shortcuts (during the installation of windows, it was working if not deployed).
I had to modify the nsis installers, once again. The $SMPROGRAMS variable was not able to install the shortcuts in the right folder (this is a common problem: https://github.com/LibreCAD/LibreCAD/issues/783)
Now it's working. I created the "systemdrive" variable and used it to create a shortcut for all users.
For information, here is the code. I will try to add a few more repacked programs in the next versions.
