17 years ago I erased Windows from my home environment owing to the relative richness of multimedia applications available from planet CCRMA (for Fedora linux). Indeed, at that time, the best open source DVD ripper was written in Perl and intended mainly for linux.
Then, seven years later, certain annoying office-related circumstances drove me back to using Windows XP at home. When that got unsupported I skipped the detestable Windows 7 and upgraded to 8. I lived with that thru 10 until recently.
What happened next was that something went wrong in the April 2018 upgrade which didn't even hit my Win 10 until July -- whataver had been happening to delay windows upgrade is not related to the next bug I suffered: it wouldn't run windows updates because of old SIDs in the registry that did not match any users. But when these were removed (I had to carefully check the valid SIDs and edit the registry), it refused to log in because some typically nasty MS programming was linking these old SIDs to the PIN and password details instead of the new SIDs created by the upgrade. Too late to create a backup admin logon and my project (carefully backed up elsewhere) was ready to migrate to linux (as previously planned), so it was enough reason, relative to faint counter-argument, once again to banish windows from my home computers.
You only live twice, Mister Gates...
