Windows 10

Question

With Windows 7 about to be mothballed in Jan, i'm, reluctantly, looking at a new OS.

I have a well specced PC, that i built myself, for music, that is sat unused most of the time. I'm guessing i can just get a new SSD, whack it in, and load 10 on that drive and leave the Win 7 environment alone.

So that being the case, and bearing in mind that i had Win 10 on a tablet and absolutely hated it, what are good tips to keep Microsoft snooping to a minimum?

 

Or i could buy a Mac Mini for £300?

Every time there is a major software change especially Windows you see the same complaints I want to keep the previous version. Saw it when 2000 users had to move to XP, when XP users had to move to 7,even remember some gui change that Facebook did and everyone started a petition. 

Not being judgemental but it's ususually a pointless fight. Windows 10 definitely because it's got too far ahead of 7 to be practical clinging on. 

Agree it's not what I would have designed but users don't get a vote. 

Anyway this is brilliant IMO
