Caution, homies. If you use home version of Windows 10 you will be unable to create an offline account and will be forced to create a Microsoft account to finish setup and use Windows 10 1909. Even if you use the build-in reset tool.
The only way to create an offline account is to disconnect the computer from the internet before setup.

The problem with Linux is that it is pointless. Get a bootable browser and you won´t need it.
There are over 2TB of Windows software on my HDD, why should I exchange it for the free shit you oppose?

Good thing I use Pro......... By the way, once you've set up Win 10 Home you can go into settings and switch it to a local account, it's not hard.

Thanks but not interested........

Maybe you could use it to scrape your hemorrhoids, or send it to fncceo as he (not I) was the one who suggested you upgrade to Linux......... In the meantime I have some work to do with my Win 10 Pro gamer........ :eusa_whistle:
