    A heads-up for those who might not have heard.

    It would seem that some Windows 10 Pro users are waking to find that their licenses are being deactivated and down-graded to Windows Home. Microsoft is said to be aware of the error and they are working on the problem.

    You can check out the issue here: Bleeping Computer

    Not doing very well lately are they? :lol:

    One must of course wonder whether these inconveniences to the average Windows user are deliberate and MS have some hidden agenda :confused:

    And no, I don't believe vapour trails are harmful or that fluoride in tap water is deliberate euthanasia ;)

    I don't think so. It's more likely due to an honest mistake or incompetence. You can choose which one. :rolleyes:
