All you get is the product key, no disc. M$ doesn't care where the money comes from, as long as it keeps coming, sadly.

Especially when someone got a juicy Matrix 980 TI... tell me, how many users in % percentage got this Card? Maybe 0,000000001% or so.
I have to downsample my intellect in order to understand MS.
I just got the Feeling, a small bunch of MS is permannently lured into this Company by Money. Then they gonna work for MS a good while and this is actually "the head" of MS and those People was responsible for creating a good OS. At some Point they leave MS and are making something else because it is a hassle being involved into this paradigm for to Long but at least good payment. Reason a OS can go up and down in Quality a lot. Anyway, the whole Marketing stuff is not done by "the head" but rather some decayed Long time Office Sitter who basically got few clue regarding the OS itself but they are doing Marketing and other stuctural stuff. Then they gonna implement simply lot of self centered junk but in term a OS is in a good shape it´s hard to refuse by users because the OS is supported well by the gaming industry. The Chat and Support representatives are... here in order to represent a apparently righteous mentality telling every user how clean and proper MS is acting as a whole Company. Another word for this is called "virtual housecleaner" , but in this case mostly male and not female associated with because it´s Software and male may have 0,1% more Knowledge in average still because of increased interest in General.
So, you see i know how stuff works, hard to hide it from me.
No, i´m not interested into good mouthing it because now that i was trying to almost force a Kind smile with a harsh answer i was losing my honest smile. I´m always honest, this is very important to me and it wont work with dishonesty in my life, no matter the sacrifice.
Regarding my Actions i do... we will see... i have to think over it and may try out some more Chats first.
Something good at this Point because i think it´s important not to lose track for the good stuff: My fixed PC is now a true Performance Monster. I do not even OC the 6700 K CPU anymore because makes no sense, the CPU got almost no load in almost any game and any other application works blazingly fast. The tradeoff in heat for less than 10% Performance gain is simply to big because at 4/4,2 GHz the CPU stays almost 20 C cooler (basically stock 6600K temperatures but higher clocks and HT enabled) but with the exact same Performance (difference would only be synthetic). The GPU i leave at 1400/7502 (max clock is rarely used in reality, just a few games make use of it, Witcher 3 so far, so this is rather few Overall stress) for permannent use, works well this way and even max load usually is not exceeding 80 C (case fan at slow Speed). So, yeah... really a great System, ... i simply miss a working OS yet.
Yes... no more to say.I'm not at all sure the MS representative I talked to was based in the US. She sounded middle eastern. MS farms that stuff out all over the world. There are some economic reasons for that but it also circumvents problems with calling support from different time zones. You are in Switzerland?
You need to bet back on the phone and call the Microsoft update center again and get this thing activated.
IAs I explained in post #29, I did it with an OEM product that technically was no longer valid but that did not seem to concern the rep. Earlier this summer I was able to activate two machines with Windows 10 upgrades (from Windows 7) even a week after the "official" July 29 deadline. My impression is that Microsoft is so determined to move everyone over to Windows 10 that they are not being very picky about how its done anymore.
This is indeed correct, Mister Gates was just very skilled as a marketer and he knew how to set up some sort of working stucture in order to make it work as a company. His own words was something like this "we will never Need more than XYZ amount of RAM"... well he was terribly wrong, nowadays there is near endless RAM demand for certain programs. However, as a Money-donkey (cash cow) he truly is a Genius, i have to agree on this term. He will never ever become poor... he knows how to handle cash, so there is a valid reason why he still is the biggest shareholder of this Company. Having some sort of autistic personality was even a Advantage, as it will allow for some expanded view beyond the usual "social structures", which is unfortunately not always valid. In General stupidity knows almost no bounds and many of those so called social stuctures are actually stupid, but never underestimate the might of a huge amount of stupid beings, this is why the majority can cause a lot of critical issues.Bill Gates' genius was never as a programmer but as a marketer and that's why Microsoft dwarfed Apple in the marketplace.
Well, nowadays a successful Company is not truly "a nice Thing" and i do understand this sad matter because it´s simply not how the current Profit oriented economy is working. There would be a huge System Change required in the way how Profit is actually earned, not a easy Task. Currently, the biggest Profit is done by leeching out the max possible on every single customer, the Basics are easy to understand, but the Details on how to execute this task with highest success is a advanced Thing.I have often thought it would be nice for Microsoft to sell only one version of it's OS to so as not to make these things so confusing for the customer base.
