    Well crap. First Superfish, then overriding Windows Update, and now this. I've always had an eye on the X1 Carbon or Yoga or whatever but I no longer have any trust in the company.

    Dell's still good, right?

    Ha! My H530 is not on the list. So far all the a stuff Lenovo adds hasn't been on my PC.(Just got luck I guess). but there are problems with all PC manufacturers, no matter where they're from. For example Sony is telling it's users to wait:
    DO NOT UPGRADE YET.
    To ensure your VAIO PC works with Windows 10, it is strongly recommended that you wait to upgrade your PC until the drivers are ready.
    We are testing supported models and will be providing the results as quickly as possible. We plan to release Windows 10 upgrade information and, for Windows 8 and 8.1 models, drivers, applications and detailed information on the schedule below based on the operating system originally installed on the PC.

    They've had just as much time to get things ready as we've had in trying it out. I have 2 Dell Notebooks and looking on their support.dell.com site lists a note about Win10 and suitable drivers available that are not included in Win10.

    It's the M$ who implemented the BIOS based backdoor so others can exploit it.

    Windows 8 introduced an "official" way to do this called "Windows Platform Binary Table". Every time Windows boots, it checks your ACPI table for an entry called "WPBT", writes that to disk as "wpbbin.exe", and executes it. There does not seem to be any way to disable this behavior in Windows. Truecrypt would not help in this case because it happens after boot.

    MS Bloat. If it's bad enough it'll go away on it's own, but at the bare minimum you can usually disable it.
