Pros: I'm not a fan of WIndows (I prefer Linux) but I need it to run my DAW software. Win7 is OK for the purpose.
Cons: I recently purchased an OEM copy. The major problem is the product key comes covered with a silver "anti-piracy" sticker that Microsoft indicates should be removed "with a thumbnail or coin." Doing so on my recent purchase also removed several of the letters of the product key, making entering the key impossible. Thus making my $140 OS unusable.

Pros: First off I bought almost 50% less on another Microsoft partner website. Second, pro is not needed unless you're trying to certify or are in some kind of business setting using the extra features. I have upper certifications in win7 and started those certs with Vista. Glad I did, I understand the up coming trend. Intel is at 14nm.......What's next? Almost at the end of that. AMD has a lead in embedded GPU but not compute power. Changes are coming, and desk tops will have to change. The best way to describe this OS is it feels light weight compared to the others. Very fluid! Faster everything. Ssd's? Amazing!.
Cons: None so far. I was having multi problems updating a new win7 install (thx Microsoft). infact I ordered win7 but the key was back ordered and win10 wasn't, so I ended up with this.
Other Thoughts: I wanted win10 for my son's Xmas present, but he didn't. He just got forced to get updated. He likes it, but stumbles. Take your time and you'll love it too. Just like XP to Vista, no one wanted it. I learned Vista, so when win 7 came out I was way ahead of those that waited. Don't wait, go the free OS if this upsets you that much.

Was able to turn WIndows 10 Home DVD into a Bootable USB
Pros: It activated and worked. I had to install windows 10 twice. It activated twice on same computer. If you take the DVD ISO and turn it into a bootable USB it was cheaper than buying the USB version. Need a larger USB than 4 GB.
Cons: Windows 10 is expensive and hard to build custom computers in comparison to pre-build prices who get volume prices on OS.
Other Thoughts: Just wish the OS was cheaper.

Pros: Zero. Was unable to successfully enter the product key.
Cons: I made every effort to carefully remove the material covering the key after reading the reviews on here with people having issues with it and I was still unable to salvage the key because the left side of the material was defective. I made efforts to input the key guessing on what the missing characters were but had no luck. Extremely disappointed that I spent $140 on this and waited two weeks for its arrival, only for it to end up completely useless. And to make it worse this product is not refundable or returnable. If Microsoft could replicate the quality of this product in Windows 10, I would use that OS. But Windows 7 is hard to compete with.
Other Thoughts: Exercise caution when purchasing. You could get one with no issues accessing the product key or with issues like myself and a few other folks on here. However, this product may be worth giving it another shot.
