I nursed my damaged old Win 7 laptop as long as I could but finally had to replace it with a new HP w/Win 10. I absolutely hate Win 10. I hate MS's imperial business model of, first, forced obsolescence and now snooping and "rent". I was perfectly content with Win 7; hell, I was perfectly content with Win XP. I'm losing Office, Outlook email, and a number of pre Vista apps that won't run on Win 10. And the Win 10 interface is clunky and unattractive. I'm not a geek, I haven't typed a line of code since FORTRAN. I know nothing of non-Win OS. So I'm interested in some options I can explore. The new computer has a 1T hd, my old one only has about 200MB including Win 7. Can I just copy my entire old HD to the new one and erase Win 10? Does Win 10 have hooks in the hardware that will seek revenge?
