Yep i run C6.6 and 7, depending on the purpose of the server (Normally on an ESXi host)
Have you tried 10 fresh not upgraded? I Got my MSAPS disks awhile ago and used them for the first time last week, fresh install of 10 runs extremely well.

My main servers run CentOS 7.
I've tried offering Ubuntu & Mint installs to customers and it's always a big no.
As for Win10, I've tried around 20 times & it has never worked so I've just given up.
Fucking things up since ages ago.

EXTRA DESKTOPS! LIKE LINUX! Better yet, you can change them by pressing windows + ctrl + left/right arrow.
W10 is boss.

Nah not yet. I'm happy with Windows 7 for now.

Running it on work PC (I do tech support) and at home, works great, no issues that I can think of other than the big brother stuff but you can disable pretty much all the call-backs to MS
http://winaero.com/blog/how-to-disable-telemetry-and-data-collection-in-windows-10/
Also scroll down to the comment from Wade which has a powershell script to redirect all the calls to loopback (so it doesn't go anywhere)
Also run these to disable some diagnostic tracking
Quote
sc config DiagTrack start= disabled
sc config dmwappushservice start= disabled
sc stop DiagTrack
sc stop dmwappushservice

I also turn off all the stuff in privacy settings including Cortana
Also only use a local account not a MS one if you don't have devices to sink across (windows phone or tablet) and you don't want your usage to be used for marketing  ;)

You can also uninstall apps like Xbox stuff and others

This process should work for future builds as well as this is a standard process to remove metro apps since Windows 8.

Disclaimer: This should be a relatively simple removal of two Metro apps but I have not fully tested this and it could cause issues within Windows.

    Start an Administrative Powershell window
    Run the command 'Get-AppxPackage | Select Name,PackageFullname' (This will list installed Metro apps displaying the Name and PackageFullname needed to uninstall)
    Locate the two Xbox packages (Microsoft.XboxLIVEGames and Microsoft.XboxApp)
    Copy the 'PackageFullname' from one of these
    Type 'Remove-AppXPackage <PackageFullname>' (replace <PackageFullname> with the text you copied from the list) and hit enter
    Repeat step 4 & 5 for the other Xbox metro app
    Reboot and the Xbox integration will be gone from Full screen games and the Start menu

So a bit of mucking around to get it working to suitable level of paranoid, but do need to check after Windows Updates since I've noticed some settings being changed back and you can't really disable updates like in 7

I like Windows 10 and don`t like conspiracy.
I have nothing to hide  :)
