It's true that a limit of 50 activations appears generous, but I'm one of the few who might find it restrictive. As an incurable Linux distro-hopper for a number of years now, I have done countless installations on the same machine. And many of those have been Windows 10.
Also, I prefer clean installs to upgrades, and any problems I've encountered with W10 I have often solved by reinstalling. It's just so easy, and takes only about half an hour.
E_sman's exchange with MS support is the only evidence I've seen of a possible limit. Most of the replies I've seen on related matters at answers.microsoft.com say there is no limit.
And all this got me thinking. If I have used up 30 activations (no idea, just a guess) in 2 years, then surely there is someone who has passed the 50 mark. But a web search for activation limits only brings up MS Office problems.
Also, a look through the list of Windows activation error codes shows none related to limits.
I would have thought there'd be an error code if limits were a genuine issue.
Obviously this doesn't affect the vast majority of Windows users, but does anyone have any knowledge or experience regarding MS's current policy?
