Remember we're pirates and we don't pay for software. Paying for software is a crime against computer science itself. :)

Well said. These days Windows 10 has become truly Telemetry oriented OS and using pirated version is the best way to give MSFT.

Telemetry can be disabled. Naturally I don't mean using the settings, I mean using something like W10 privacy. There are a few others, but this is the one I most like.

Its become uncontrollable and windows can enable disabled services automatically and start from clean slate just like Mercury Man.
I am forced to update to FCU. For now I'm using WUMT to disable them and will move to RS4 once its in RTM branch.

I disagree. It's controllable if you use third-party program such as W10 Privacy and if you use the Group Policy Editor. W10 Privacy, among other things, blocks MS's telemetry servers through the hosts file. I just checked on my Group Policy Editor Cortana is still disabled.

Sticking with old software is not the solution. For example, DX12 is available only with W10. Also, you can't take full advantage of future CPU's such as Intel's i9 or higher versions of AMD's Ryzen unless you use W10. There are probably more examples.

From what I've been reading it's not that it won't run, it's that you can't take full advantage of what these new CPU's have to offer unless you're on W10.

That's a lie. There are several people using Kabylake and Ryzen chips on w7 using simplix pack. One of them is Raiderman from NBR forums http://forum.notebookreview.com/

Have they conducted benchmark tests with this and compared it to Windows 10? If so what do the test say?
