Windows 10 does away with the reinstallation headaches

Mark Hachman | March 18, 2015
No more downloading update after update. Windows 10 installs and refreshes will save significant space compared to Windows 8.1, and take far less time, too.

I'm wondering two things, however: Will Windows 10 refreshes be dependent on the CPU installed in the PC or tablet? And will malware try and attack those system files directly, allowing them to "survive" an in-place rebuild? There is one answer, though: Microsoft will allow you to back up that "pristine state" of your Windows build yourself--so if Windows becomes corrupted, you'll have your own recovery disk.
