    Let me guess, to get in users have to interact with a facial recognition cortana scanner, and customer services is likewise a cortana voice agent flat screen. Half way through your shopping experience microsoft will decide to add functionality and change what's in your basket, irrespective of whether you want it to, and all the while it is taking as much personally identifiable information from you as is it can get away with.

    Prestigious site though, on the corner of Bond St and Oxford St! Users can enjoy queuing for 15 minutes to get into Oxford Circus with their new surface during rush hour.

    It'll be expensive to run, every few months they'll have to reinstall the windows.

    Only because they’ll do an grade (stealth mode - in black) and then will break. (And of course they won’t be open)


    But I have to say it won’t be on my list of top tourist attractions.

    Looks like someone is still running windows XP or earlier or enjoys the warez sites. I have had Win 10 Pro for more than 2 years now. Still runs as new.

    I actively avoid London now, considering I lived and worked there for 5 years. Guess I'll never visit.

    So do I, but that would spoil the gag.

    Guess you don’t run it very often then as there have been numerous updates to ‘improve’ it since it was new!

    I have had a few hiccups with Win10, but the ease of formatting is what makes it my favourite.

    I love easily resetting my PC every 6 months, even though it might not have any real benefit. I keep everything on OneDrive anyway so its all super easy!
