    And that's what hurts the most.. Win10 is great in many ways but if I install it on say.. a PC that needs to run stable 24/7 for a week then it really sucks if you suddenly discover that it reboots mid-way on it's own or when you re-use it many months later (after being in storage), an update has broke/changed/reverted something important and you have only few hours worth of time to debug it.
    And you can't really rely on external tools or tweaks to handle things since your 2015 install might be fine but if you have a new 2017 installation, it might have different settings or tools won't work at all.

    Lack of proper "freeze" and lack of proper version numbering is a nightmare to keep up with and you can't really do "long term support" for say.. an 2016 version.
    Frequent major changes, I don't mind it on a browser or similar but OS is something that really defines key behavior of a computer and losing control over that is not nice.

    Many of their choices are nice though and I really do support the idea of auto-updates in many ways too.
    However there are some systems where that's more about trying to fix a wheel that aint broken.

    What bothers me is that a lot of this shit could be made optional, I'd gladly even pay extra for a version that doesn't spy and gives me more control.
    I'd really want to use win10 in the future for all my systems.

    I just dislike the forced spying and lack of control
    Workarounds are useless if they keep happening even a little after disabling everything, not to mention resetting between updates.
    I really cant trust a system that i cant control.

    Win 8.1 still works well enough, at least i can always remove the added cruft since it wasnt built in yet.

    Try dosbox LFN http://www.columbia....x-vdos-lfn.html

    Some builds tend to be really unstable without it or wont start, like the one that has crashfix.bat

    The 1995 build with actors.map experimented with the same procedurally generated water as duke did.
    Pattern is similar to Lameduke one, but the function for ripple positions is less random.

    I highly recommend playing around with the Feb95 build instead of Jan95, seems way more stable.

    Also the HUD reminds me of kenbuild.
