If the idea of an aircraft carrying a bomb without the nuclear 'pit' inside it, I recommend you don't read Command and Control by Eric Schlosser, because you'll find out about how many times the USAF flew around with fully armed warheads, or indeed the times they crashed (eg Goldsboro).
I figure more must be better, glad I just bought some more tobacco!
For any ambition, you'll need all three, but if you have a lot of one quality, you can usually substitute it for one of the others to a certain extent (eg money and hard work can be exchanged in both directions).
For example, just hard work won't get you far, without being lucky enough to have opportunities to use that hard work (of course, more hard work, or money, can help create opportunities).
You put the card in, wait about two seconds for it to be read, type in your PIN and press enter, then wait about another three to five seconds to verify. Then just take your card out and walk off.
Admittedly it's been about 10-15 years since I last had to use the mag stripe, but I remember it taking much longer waiting for the receipt to print out, signing it, passing that back to the person behind the counter etc. etc.
No that's an important question.
The same is even more true of Youtube as a whole, it's used by everyone these days.
(Ironically, if you type "ls" into Powershell, you get an an output that's pretty much the same as "ls -l", because it turns out, that's what people want most of the time)
So do you not have any kind of computing device in your lounge at all? No console, no streaming box, no tablet that streams to your TV?
I'm not saying you have to, I'm just surprised that someone posting on slashdot doesn't have computers in every room.
Storage Spaces, a sort of ZFS-lite, depending on your usage it might be really handy, or of no use. (it was introduced in Win *, but it's better in 10)
Secure Boot. With the very large proviso that it disables dual-booting, this makes your system much more secure.
Better file copy dialogs. With graphs and everything!
Stuff that I don't care about or use:
Cortana: disabled, I have a browser if I want to search the internet
Windows store: ignored
Multiple destops, meh, I have two monitors, that's enough
There will be a bit of a learning curve to find the new places where MS have hidden things. You now get a settings application, which is sometimes separate, and sometimes duplicates the Control Panel. Also, various UI bits have moved, but if you're used to switching between different OSs regularly then you'll work it out in a week or so.
tl/dr the idea behind the registry was fine, but it's been abused for years.
