comment Will I experience degraded performance on a Ethernet connection through a splitter if I'm the only user on the line?
Just forestalling the inevitable "I was getting 1.9Gbit on my WiFi and after all that work I only got 100Mbit". Yes, except on DVD downloads from CDN services on a 100/7 cable internet connection, it's hard to saturate a 100MBit Ethernet connection. Used to say that 10Mbit was all you needed if you were just using the internet, not so much anymore.

The 100mbps Ethernet specification only uses 4 of the 8 wires, you will lose the ability to run at Gigabit speeds.

comment Cannot Create User Account Named 'Con' Under Windows 7
Past experience just shows that using reserved words can have bad consequences. You will find out over time where the issues lie. Either take the advice or not as you choose.

comment Will all drivers for windows 8.1 work on windows 10?
In most cases, you don't know till you try it. Unless the driver specifically says it will run on the newest OS, and even then, sometimes the initial version for the new OS will be buggy as the software developer hasn't had as broad a collection of variant installations and hardware to test on as exists in real life.

comment Is there spyware in most crack/cracked/keygen software?
Some malwares are smart enough now to check if they're running on a VM. Proves nothing to have it run without incident, once it's up a level, it knows it's got the whole playing field. The newest ones do drive wipes if you try to clean them... Get used to making good backups.

Spyware is the least of your worries... Nothin' like a good file crypter that throws away the key. What can happen in 2015 is much more interesting...
