I have a test of an Unactivated Win 10, installed in a VM, to test exactly this.

Installed Dec 8, 2016. 1,271 days so far.
Runs exactly as Day 1. Gets all updates, etc.

Of course, there is that randomly appearing watermark at bottom right, and MS could easily cut that off at any time.
Oh so it works just with a watermark?

I got an activation key for win 10 for like $30. I think I got it off urcdkey.com Not sponsored or anything, it just went smooth for me from that site, i've gotten the runaround from similar retailers in the past.
