1) Gave no choice over updates
2) Gave no information about updates
3) Installed 'payware' (solitaire) as default
4) Shared your bandwidth with other internet users and used your P.C. as a kind of storage device to distribute it's own O.S. by default
5) Intruded on my current O.S. and used crafty underhand tactics to try and get me to upgrade
When we are used to have M.S. decide exactly what we have on our PC (if we are running Windows) you cannot predict in any way what they will do, what may seem suicide now, may not seem so bad in the future... after all ..it is free, why complain
. . .does that mean the free El Captain for the mac system of computers was not really free. Does this mean that in the future that Apple is going to start charging me a service charge. . ., or is that only Microsoft that is going to do service charges. . .just wondering; nothing more. . .
With all that said, I just don't like a company forcing me to change for the priveledge of making some of my software (that currently works just fine) obsolete, requiring me to repurchase it or purchase something else!
I believe the day will come when we will be charged a monthly fee for computer service. I can't see any other reason for MS to do the things they are doing. They want us to accept W 10 so badly that they are forcing it on our computers. There has got to be a reason they are so aggressive with this.
I saw a get started screen on a print screen photo that said the may be a fee. I wonder what that was about. I checked the photo again and it said there may be an internet fee.

I still have windows 7 and so far there have been NO forced upgrade attempts so what are you all talking about ?
I find a good analogy with Windows 10 to the recent Free-to-Play trend in the gaming industry.
It's "free" to play, but they'll nickel and dime us later with all the add-on features. $10 here, and $15 there . . . after a few years, we'd end up paying more than $100 in additional features. This is the reason why all the games are no longer included with Windows 10, and even a fairly essential function such as a DVD player was excluded.
