>Windows 10 looks fairly modern, and runs faster than 7, but makes you MS's biatch.
On what system does Windows 10 run faster than XP ? XP runs faster on my box than 10, or 7 ... and the bloody thing is in a VM.
7 runs faster in a VM than 10 in on the host HW ... so, what are you smoking, I need some of that for the mother in law!
Oh, and, if you do not take bootup time into account, Windows 2000 in a VM beats the others hands-down ... my host OS is Linux .... boots faster than any windows I have seen wakes from sleep ...
