Unless you are Really Big Biz this...

"officially supported only by Microsoft’s Windows 10.

means SFA to man or beast.

I've seet MS quoted as saying that other OS's will run but won't take advantage of new tricks in the X86 microcode.

That seems to be a world of difference to 'won't run'.

To me, won't run means something like trying to boot a Solaris (Sparc) Cd/DVS on an X86 CPU.

Or trying to Run Windows 7 on a machine with 512Kb of Ram when the min is 1Gb (or more).

Or trying to stop 'svchost.exe' from using all the RAM and CPU for no effing reason.
