I also just completed the latest installation of Windows 10,i also just completed the latest Windows installation. At the beginning, I planned to upgrade to Windows 10 from Windows 7, but I tried it many times and it was not successful.
While I am surprised you had difficulty, one of the nice things about portable freeware generally is that it moves easily from from operating systems. As such, I don't think I've done an OS upgrade since like 2005. Plus Windows has a tendency to leave a lot of junk behind so maybe a fresh install is best.

Microsoft made a bunch of changes in a new insider preview build. Most notably, the calculator now supports graphing.

Nice, that real time view of the graph changing as the input is changed is cool. I stopped doing the Insider Preview some time ago but hope that stays in the final build.

The last few systems I upgraded to Windows 10, I just did a clean install and used the Windows 7 Product Key or clicked on the option to get that later and after install did the activation and I haven't had any issues. My experience with Windows 10 has been for the most part very positive as I haven't had an critical issues due to the OS.

A review of a Windows 10 upgrade. Educational.
Was the whole exercise necessary? Of course not. If only there was a reward at the end of, I could be a happy little nerd. But there isn't any, just the unbearable lightness of being, except this one isn't written by Milan Kundera.

I've not posted anything about Windows 11 both because I haven't seen anything interesting, but also because this is entirely what I expected from the next OS version: a fully cloud-based PC. They've been seeing money in cloud for years now (Office 365 is not cheap) and it only makes sense that they'd move more and more services to a cloud environment.

It's basically an ongoing PC rental rather than buying an upgraded one every few years.

This might be good for portable freeware in the sense that you will still be able to run programs independent of Microsoft's web-based OS, but it also might be the case that some editions require all downloads from Microsoft Store. Hopefully that's not the case.

Actually, even with Windows 10, with each new major release, they are making it more and more obvious _they_ own the software; you don't own anything.

From the random manner in which they update/reboot the PC for you,

From initially obfuscating the creation of a local user account to now _requiring_ you to sign in to a new PC using Microsoft account,

Trust me, if they can figure out a way to make every app installation go through their app store, they would!
