Default Windows 10 on MBP via Boot Camp

has anyone here done this? i love my MBP hardware and MacOS is fine for just fiddling around, but windows is the OS environment i prefer. i have a Windows 10 Home installation disk from my recent PC build, and i've considered installing it on the MBP via Boot Camp.

i assume the installation process is easy, but does windows 10 run well like this? i also assume that an installation via BC will take care of driver issues and whatnot.

if i install windows 10 without purchasing a new license, how crippled will it be? i can live with a watermark and fewer customization options. i don't want to deal with incessant nag prompts

Installing via Bootcamp is easy. Booting between the two is just a matter of holding down the option key during reboot, otherwise it just auto reboots to whatever you were last using.

I don't know about using Windows 10 without a registration key.

i tried it out. the installation was very easy. i have a 2017 MBP so all i had to do was download the ISO from microsoft, launch Boot Camp, and go

i tinkered around with it for a day or two and decided i didn't really need win 10 on the MBP so i deleted the install. hell, all i do with the MBP is surf and consume media - that's $1400 (or however much i paid) well spent! /red
