    . . .This is just another silly game. . .can you provide proof that everyone is updating to 10, and not going to keep it; I didn't think so. . .
    I said this:
    most people are sampling the goods now and have not made a decision whether to go with it or not.
    He came at me and said this :
    Any data to back that up?

    My guess is that people will just install it and use it, and not make any decision "whether to go with it or not".
    I said i think the overwhelming majority are sampling it and will decide whether to keep it or not , he disagrees and thinks most will install it and keep it .

    Thats all, nothing to get into a brawl to the death over , at least not at this point , it's early though and i'm not even violent lol.

    In your estimation.

    In reality, at least I admit I have no information one way or another, and that it's my personal observation/guess/thought that people are not deciding to "keep Windows 10 or not"...unless perhaps they have difficulties with it, and roll back to the previous 7/8.1 version.

    I have no numbers either way.

    And quite frankly, I have absolutely nothing invested in the future success or failure of W10.

    I like it on my system, but don't give a fig if 75 million people shout "holy crap, this sucks, get me back to my previous OS!" or "Someone help me put Linux on this thing!" or...you get the idea.
    Oh Ok i misread what your intent was then , my apologies. Your asking for proof threw me because i think we both know neither of us have proof .

    . . .There are seven billion people on this planet, and you think Microsoft really cares about little ode' you. . .
    If Win10 really does a major criminal invasion of privacy, the EU will be on it and basically prevent Win10 installs...unless there is a US-based privacy invasion install of Win10 and a separate one for the EU....?

    Hmmm, maybe I need to check that out. I'll be back as I have to step out of my Faraday cage for a moment...

    The usual ratio of OEM to retail is 19 to 1. It should be even higher over the next 11 months because of the giveaway since the giveaways are displacing almost all the retail sales. (It is probably meaningless, but the GWX licenses are FPP without a key.)
    But if you upgrade a retail version of Windows 7 or 8.1 you retain the OEM or Retail version of Windows 7 or 8.1

    You cannot reuse or continue to use Windows 7 or 8 OEM on a different computer under any circumstances. You can only dual boot a retail copy of Windows 7 or 8 with an OEM copy if the new copy is an FPP retail copy (not an upgrade). If you use an upgrade copy the OEM licence is tied to the upgrade license.

    ... and don't forget your ISP sees every bit you send or receive to or from the internet

    They record every site you visit and probably what I am typing on forums but they can't record what I do on a secure website or if I use encryption. They can see the site I visit and the data I use for visiting the secure website. If they did record what you did on secure websites then financial transaction wouldn't be safe.

    @Dave44 I thought facebook fixed that app issue. However, facebook itself keeps logs a little longer then required. I don't know anything about google apps. I don't use Gmail anymore because they don't use a good internal filter like Microsoft Outlook web based email to keep out the bad or adult stuff. I always got bad or adult stuff with Gmail but not with Outlook even without a custom filter. That why I removed my gmail account. These were spammers on Gmail.

    I really wanted to like DuckDuckGo but there are just many things that it doesn't find, that Google does. And one feature that I really like (tailoring search to results to region) relies on the fact that Google sees your data. If it didn't spy on you, that feature would just not work.

    I did make the move to Zoho Mail in early 2014 though, and now I find it every bit as good as older incarnations of GMail.
