Hi,
Yep sure was back when 11 officially came out I got that multiple activation key so I could keep my win-10 pro activations unaffected by using them with inplace upgrading just switched activation codes

Got a couple combo win-10 pro and office 2019 pro keys to
I've only used the office 2019 keys so far on those and they worked
The site has darn good support to if you have issues activating.

This is the latest deals they do this quite often

I have chose the Zorin OS as my gateway into fully go into Linux. So far it's okay and does have a Windows feel.

It does play my DVD's
It does play my music.
It connected to the internet with no issues so far.
It Did connect to my Xerox 8580 ColorQube Computer.
It does seems snappier than Win 10 and my Win 10 has the bloatware removed and has a Basic Win7 look. So does Zorin.

Seems to be no issues with my GPU VisionTek RX 5700 Reference... So far.

I already use Open Office and its suites so no problem there.

I really do not want Win 11 so I think I'm going to stick with this and see how far my old brain cells will dive into this newish OS to me.

Of course I'm still using Win10. BUT the nice thing about my rig is the ease of use. All I have to do is use my 5.25" drive bay IcyDock set up and swap out SSDs in front of my case and I'm on Zorin.

But I WILL have questions of this and the Linux environment and I WILL post it here since this has a Zorin Topic.

One of the things I will be doing is setting up a VM using Gnome Box since Zorin uses Gnome in the first place. I would like to put every OS that I have used into 1 box and play around with it. I HOPE things will be easy enough for me to do this.

I'll let you guys know what this old man is going to be doing on this as well as other things.

Like the "Cursed Finding" I purchased for my " Manly man, Mid Century, Manly Man Technical Shop".

I'll give you a hint. A lot of real blood is was involved with the object in question.

Cya all later.
