I build, fly and crash RC helicopters and planes. This whole "drone" thing is just news hype.

As someone has said already RC is nothing new, there have been bigger and more capable models available for years.

Windows 10 makes big gains at home, lags at work

I use Win 7 & 10 at home on laptops, at work we are mainly Win 7 & 8.1

Tbh I don't see what all the fuss is about with Win10 (privacy aside).

I don't have any issue supporting Win10, but then I have taken some time to get used to it and where things are located etc.

Lets face it, every time a new MS OS comes out we have the same old story of people not wanting to upgrade as they don't like the new OS etc...

Does make me laugh though, seems to be the same people moaning as last time. If you hate MS that much then maybe you should try a Linux distro.

Sneaky Microsoft renamed its data slurper before sticking it back in Windows 10

Word of warning if you are using audio production software/hardware.
