Enterprise Version is NOT available to the general public that leave Pro which if i am not mistake they removed some of the tools/options/abilities used to block their data mining, forgive me i cant remember what it was. And ya i would pay for the Enterprise Version but shouldn't be forced to pay for privacy and usability but as i said before win 10 is not an OS anymore.

My PC is at its near death and very much in time for an upgrade 8 Gigs of ram one or 2 sticks are near death too but cant figure out which ones. A 790i Ultra MB which is my main problem cant add any other HDDS it wont reboot heat i think is the main problem i do run a water cooled Processor. but the main problem will be Windows as i am a gamer and am serious about my privacy and control over my PC. Linux would do for the privacy but out of the questions for gaming and everything else it do. The only copy of windows that would give me the control i want is enterprise and that is not for sale to anyone other then businesses BIG ones lol. what to do ...I have a full legal copy of Windows Vista which i would have to install to get back to windows 7 Ultimate a full copy of win 7 ultimate is like 400 bucks or was i haven't looked in years. very off topic i guess but any suggestions? and ya money is a concern. Saving money has never been my strong suite lol. like you i will never buy a corporate built PC i love building my own, control..ya know.

Comment Is nudity allowed or not? (Score 3, Insightful) 159

what they should be sorry for is the continued confusion of their very confusing nudity TOS rules. They say no nudity for any reason,then say sorry for removing a nude image....Is nudity allowed or not. Have the balls to enforce the rules you create zook or change them. Any problems FB has in this matter are of their own making by being balless cowards. I would hate to be working on thier abuse team.

Comment We cant really trust auto-update (Score 1) 181

We cant really trust auto-update either, just look at Microsoft Win 7 what they do when they have full control over updates..They abuse the update system to insert non security items under the Security update auto-update system. No trust is my reasons for shutting of auto-updates
