The company IT force upgraded the 7 year computer I was working on from 7 to 10, with zero checks why no indicators ever showed suggesting to upgrade.
Came into work to work one day and "oh, oh! Why is the desktop different. Win 10 upgrade."

Check VS and critical daily tools still worked. Cool.
Enable dual screen strecth. Odd - not finding 2nd monitor.
Odd - not finding graphics card.
Install radeon driver update - crash. but not BSOD crash.
Windows very kindly rolled the change back to using default windows graphics driver without completely falling over.

Issue - dell motherboard driver + some releated graphics driver is not supported for windows 10.
And even better is windows detected such a thing and never prompted to upgrade knowing that the hardware was not supported.
Months go buy, zero mention why I'm not using the 2nd monitor.
There was mentions ages ago that all old hardware would be replaced. Even filled out spreadsheet with computer details indicating serial number and model type which 10 second search would indicate age and if Win 10 supported, and said spreadsheet was used to remotely identify my computer for upgrading.

Suffice to say I started looking up articles on why devs and IT do not get along, wanted to find something regarding how a number of Devs write the software IT use and actually end up with a bunch of knowledge to get their work done which they know why not ... blah ... blah ... blah.
