There's no issue with Win10 either *if* you disable all kinds of upgrades: driver, feature and possibly security ones as well
(The latter can be manually enabled when you feel the eager to do so for the time being.)
To be able to do this you need at least the Pro version.
Another concern can be telerimetry, to minimize its effect you need one of the Enterprise versions.
All the above can be disabled via group policy in the mentioned versions.
I was also "scared" of Win10 because of the above stuff (AMD stopped providing drivers
But once you know which one to use there's no problem with it. See my signature what I use: that's best out of all of them for everything
(Today's world is all about spying on citizens: on desktop, on mobile, on the street, at your home via smart TVs, Alexa, facebook, fingerprint scanner/face recognition in your mobile, ID chips under your skin, etc. just to mention a few. You get the picture
And this is not just about one corporation... If one think to get around this by not using those devices, think again: 5G, smart meters and the rest of the upcoming sh*t. This is a coordinated attack against everybody...
Hence M$, either, doesn't want you to use its OS in the good old way.)
(As it turned out there's one more version and that would be the best (it's like LTSB but there's no telerimetry in it!), but it's not available for us, its name is: Chinese Government version!
