I assume it covered the really important things, like how to install a Windows VM so you can be productive?
I think it's a good and very valid comment. (on linux, installed windows VM's to do my work.)

best part: when windows inevitably breaks itself it can be rolled back
- faster than reinstalling etc - you will be more productive running windows on linux than on metal.
next best thing: can keep your private stuff on linux, away from redmunts snooping eyes.
next next best thing: linux let's you get your money's worth out of your shiny new new gen hardware.

It's the natural and best order of things: windows on bare metal is dead.
after many otherwise intelligent sounding suggestions that achieved nothing the nice folks at Technet said the only solution was to low level format my hard disk then reinstall my signature. Sadly, this still didn't fix the issue!
