I agree with Vasudev. Disabling spying and telemetry will NOT break the OS. It's all disabled on my end. I used tools such as Do Not Spy, Destroy Windows Spying, and O & O Shut Up without any problems. If you prefer to play it safe, you can also disable most of this in the settings. Hit Winkey-I, select Privacy and shut all that stuff off. You can also use the Group Policy Editor to disable Cortana, Windows Defender, etc. Search Google and you'll find it immediately.

In my opinion once you've done all this the OS works great. I see no reason to downgrade to a previous version.
I think its best to create a thread about "W10 privacy concerns and how to get rid of them" and pin it in W10 Support.

Yes... And yet, I will try to release an edition of windows 10 when windows 10 redstone 2 is out.
One of the biggest problems I've encountered with windows 10 is the fact that upgrades are not possible while using sysprep. It's a big problem since I don't want to download a new edition each time an upgrade is released. And I'm sure harkaz is aware of this problem.
by the way Since you are from Greece, maybe you have already met this specialist living in Athens.
Well, I'm looking forward to releasing sth with windows 10 in case I would buy a brand new computer (I'd like to be a computer with freedos, but the latest ones only provide drivers for windows 10, even if I'm sure it's possible to find some drivers for windows 7 too). Unfortunately, I'm going to keep mine for some time (it's already an excellent computer). Because the i7 kabylake turns out to be disappointing compared to the i7 skylake (only a bit faster, because the cpu has a better frequency, but it tends to be like the old pentium 4, it tends to heat up quickly). And also because I'm losing a hell lot of money on the stock markets with my short positions.
I still advise you to sell your stocks though. And cgg veritas...-3% once again, This week end I was telling you to stay away from this one in the topic about finance: http://www.boursorama.com/cours.phtml?symbole=1rPCGG

Yes on Windows 10 one must download new editions to keep it updated. Even I'm waiting for RS2. BTW, Cumulative updates for windows is becoming a norm these days and slipstreaming is proving to be a thing of the past, as @humbert pointed out few years ago. Those with slower connections needs slipstreamed windows no matter what.

Slightly off-topic:
Speaking about CPUs, Last week I upgraded my CPU to an Octacore AMD FX8350 (AM3+/4.00GHz) and I am very happy with it.

It seems to be a good one indeed. I compared it to sth I know, the i7 6700hq, and it turns out to be very close in terms of performance. In any case, I think you should avoid the latest cpus of Intel (kabylake), I read negative feedback several times.

Even the successor to KL doesn't sound promising, a mere optimisation of 14nm node.

I used to have one. It's pretty good but it's not as fast as Intel. Even a good i5 can beat it. It also runs hot and eats power like crazy. Other than that it's fine.

What mobo did you put that in?

Now that we're discussing CPU's, check out this awesome link. Benchmarks on AMD's new Ryzen against Intel's best are impressive. Power consumption is much less. Of course the price is right!

If AMD can pull this off it'll give Intel something to worry about. If Ryzen they're probably out of the CPU business and Intel is left with virtually no serious competition. I suppose time will tell. Let's wish them luck.
