  1. Are there any time limits when it comes to using Windows 10 without activation?


    This is not a straight-up duplicate of other questions like this.

    Answers have already been given, but the reason why I am asking again, is the fact, that the answers differ.

    Some from answers.microsoft.com say that there is no limit, and it is going to be fine, others from answers.microsoft.com say that after a certain amount of time I may encounter random shutdowns/reboots.

    I am planning to purchase the license, not now, but later in about a year. And while I will be using unactivated Windows 10, I will be working on a c# project. And it is going to be horrible if the system would shut down itself in an unsaved state randomly.


    So I would like to get a constructive answer from a representative, whichknows 100% how the system functions. Will the Windows 10 start to shutdown/reboot itself, or do something similar if Windows 10 is not activated for an undefined amount of time?


    Here is the link from where I downloaded Windows 10 ISO; if that's relevant.

    Thank you in advance!

    :)
