Short answer money, i just don't have like £200 to get a new copy of windows, not to mention the fact that i don't really trust windows 10 or Microsofts telemetry BS which as far as I'm concerned is spyware I know that this is more rumor then fact at this point but the fact that microsoft have gone to such lengths to stop people removing it, blocking it or turning it off and given that everything is encrypted so that people can't see what data they are actually collecting makes me highly suspicious then of course you have those licence terms all of which is enough for me to give windows 10 the boot because I refuse to be spied on.Why don't you upgrade?
windows 8 is a crap and is clearly designed for mobile computing and not desktop computers, Vista is a resources hog and is widely regarded as one of the worst OSs that Microsoft ever made
which only really leaves windows 7 as an alternative the problem there is that windows 7 will be coming to the end of support shortly as well according to wikipedia extended support for windows 7 will end on January 14, 2020 making a windows 7 upgrade a waste of money.
as for linux I tried that before and was never able to find a distro I like not to mention the fact that all my software is for xp or older and wont run on linux I know that I could run my software through wine but that that just adds a lot of messing about and frankly software never runs as well in emulation as they do in the native environment they where designed for.
I've been keeping my eye on ReactOS which looks promising but to the best of my knowledge that's not really in a usable state at the moment its getting better all the time but so far as I'm aware its still in beta
Can you not move the console down or just make its width narrower so that it will fit in-between the clock and the call reinforcements button.I moved it back recently. Of course, that means a selected unit will have the leftmost part of the console text obscured again.
