    Reverted my Windows phone back to Denim... Not saying I won't go back to win10 but there are hardly interesting new apps on either and I am annoyed MS killed the fm radio app on win10. I know fm is old fashioned but I like it; as long as data roaming is expensive as it is in Europe fm radio remains important.

    Well holding power button for 5 second usually forces a shutdown on all windows os and computers, also for some phones... I didn't know windows 10 can prevent that, never had that issue

    Should be under advanced power settings. If its not a feature of your motherboard that is.

    they (or nvidia) should fix the SLI bug where the startmenu gets partially invisible after running a game.... but SLI isn't high on the priority list, as we know...

    seriously though, I like win10 overall but it has many small bugs like that... win7 and 8 were a little less sloppy in that regard.

    Didn't knew about that one, i have two monitors at different resolutions but so far it's fine, although I only use taskbar on the main screen.
    One of the reasons why I went for AMD was also compatibility with older OS's, including xp :p, just in case.

    I'm getting a motherboard from a member of the forums and was wondering about Windows 10. Since its tied to my motherboard, will I have to buy another copy of Windows 10 and if so, will I just be able to change the license when the new motherboard gets installed and if not will I have to do a format on my harddrive? Also if I have to buy a new copy of Windows 10, what is the cheapest option I'll have? I have a Windows 7 license, although I updated from it to the then free Windows 10.

    IIRC you can use the same key even with a major hardware change
    The safest option to get a win10 key is play-asia I've bought win10 keys from them multiple times and never had an issue and its only $24.99

    I wonder what happen if you own more than 1 license but use one account. I own like 6 licenses and use them on different devices but all of them have the exact same account which is the one i use on Visual Studio. I also have a MSDN Ultimate license but that one is from my work.

    Thanks for the Feeback.

    BTW, real gamers use the Amiga for everything ROTFLMAO J/K. :p

    I happen to have a couple licenses for Amiga (and Commodore 64) forever, the newest versions snagged from Groupees bundles.

    I never owned a real Amiga, but its nice to have a Virtual one! ;)

    Use the same harddrive with the same Windows 10 install, i changed my PC completely and i managed to keep my license by using the same Windows drive and install as before, and it swapped the hardware ids on its own, though i also used a ms account, dunno if it's relevant.
