    Hold right there. There are several utilities that can resize ext4 and never require opening a shell.

    Shady Windows key sellers have been known to:
    • selling the same key to several customers
    • illegally gaining access to CoA sticker rolls and photographing them before they are placed on computers
    • selling keys from timed-limited volume licenses and MSDN
    • trading in education keys from Azure Dev Tools for Teaching (formerly Microsoft Imagine/DreamSpark)

    That may be because you are generally not well informed about Linux, Windows, or computers at all.

    It does happen in practice that Microsoft no longer accepts such keys for activation after a while.

    That would be against Microsoft's terms of service, which would mean that Microsoft could retroactively invalidate your license.

    I've never heard of a single case for the past 10 years when such licenses have been revoked or nullified. I'm using such licenses as well.

    indeed, the problem happens in any case. The hard drive management has problem in linux for unknown reasons. The 5.2 kernel is going to integrate an I/O improvement... I don't know if it fixes the problem.

    Will be interesting to see if it's a gcc miscompilation, or a sensitization of existing buggy kernel code.

    If you believe any valid and substantial arguments against Linux and its shortcomings are FUD, then you may wanna check your brains or give your nearest loony bin a visit.

    I've used EXT4 on a 120 SSD, R/W about 20TB from it on a single FS. Fragmentation was 1% when I retired the hardware for a 1TB SSD. I find it hard to believe you've experienced such issues on EXT4. PEBKAC/Config issues more likely. Windows can't keep under 1% fragmentation after writing the same size drive worth of data.
