Has Microsoft US even told Microsoft Ireland to give them the data? Or are they using this bullshit sovereignty excuse to avoid doing so? it's only when MS Ireland refuse to do so because of local (Irish) laws that there's a sovereignty issue. MS US can't force MS Ireland to break laws in Ireland. At that point though, MS US is in the clear because it's done all it can.

My experience was also good for the most part.

Clean installed Windows 10 Home on a new SSD which worked but I couldn't activate it. Upgraded my Windows 7 installation and activated Windows 10 on that. Went back to my new SSD and reinstalled Windows 10. It then activated. No problems with installing things on it, including the latest nVIDIA drivers (353.60).
