I second that. Lifelong Mac user. I have a cheap Windows laptop I only use for ham and games. I nuked the drive, installed a fresh, legal copy of Windows 10 and don’t use that computer to surf or watch videos or music. I don't download ANYTHING other than ham stuff, OS updates, and games from Steam or Blizzard, and simply haven’t entered my credit card information on anything on that PC. I purchase on the web on my Mac where I have control over my credentials and security. I also restrict my Windows PC to only my Gmail account. I’m not going to let my hobby computer be the vector of identity theft or ransomware.
