One of the main reasons I hate Windows 10 is not because it's a bad OS in itself, but rather, the ETHICS behind it. MSFT pretty much FORCING people to upgrade to it is not my cup of tea. Also, they're instance that Windows 10 is "the most secure Windows ever" and their joking around with the cat pictures are not funny.
If the OS was tolerable and not jam packed with so much crap that Microsoft makes it much harder to remove then it should be the ethics part i could probably get over .
I don't have to like MS to use their products if i happened to like the product but after trying 10 for 6 weeks i became to dislike it more and more every day .
A HUGE problem is that with every release the user has less and less control and thats just not going to work with me . I have to be able to customize and EASILY get rid of things that i know i will never use and thats just not the case with Win 10.
I do like that they offered it via windows update, but should have released a 'Do not download any GWX files, Windows 10 files, or try to upgrade my system' tool that you could install as a one off and have it able to toggle if you wanted to reverse that, in other words it should have been Microsoft that released the GWX control panel, and it should also work even if you have automatic updates running.
A user should be able to leave automatic updates on in Windows 7/8/8.1 without worrying about a sneaky upgrade download.

Would like everyone's comments especially this bit:
"Then, early next year, it will be categorized as a "Recommended Update." This is significant, because it means that systems that are configured to download and install recommended updates—which for most people is the safest option—will automatically fetch the upgrade and start its installer. The installer will still require human intervention to actually complete—you won't wake up to find your PC with a different operating system—but Windows users will no longer need to actively seek the upgrade."

Well. guess I will stop posting here completely since the first response is snarky from a Gold Member. Used to like these forums since the 7 days. Time to leave it seems.
Thanks zooburner, thing is 10 is not for me. Don't like all the background stuff going on and I have a capped satellite connection. I know can supposedly turn a lot off. Just don't like the default being turned on. MS has lost my trust is the bottom line. They've gone way too commercial with ads, cloud, paid for apps, and other things. Again, I'm old and the dying customer, will not be forced to 10 though. Will switch OS before that.
And sad the comment from a long time Gold Member. I don't feel welcome here just because I'm not loving 10. Oh well.
