    I think you're referring to Apple, not Microsoft.
    I rarely pay much attention to anything Apple does since most of their stuff doesn't mesh with my style very well. But I can agree with BReeves about Microsoft knowing better than we do what we need/want. They have exhibited that attitude very clearly with the last several versions of Windows up to 10. There is a bit of backtracking with that, and we didn't lose as much control this time around.

    I thought W 10 had more control, no choice in updates, and from what I have read invasion of privacy worse than we have ever had..........which we can't turn off.

    Here is a tip for anyone interested. When I set up my W 8 and my W8.1 and I came to the name and email page, I just put my initials in the name box and ignored the other, it worked. That do not have my email address and I don't have an account with MS.

    You got it Emma , lots of other stuff as well like not being able to simply remove programs you don't want . It's just way too bloated for me and has too many built in programs that i know i will never use , thats why i went back to 7 .

    Unless 10 really changes and gives users more control over preferences and programs i won't be using it in the future , i did give it a 6 week tryout though.

    FWIW.. that's what MS claimed and I'm just reporting it. Yes, things change but they can do major updates to the current OS to meet the needs of new technology, can't they??
    MacOS X is a very different OS now compared to what it was in March 2000. That's the route it appears Windows 10 will take. Windows 10 in 2020 will be a substantially different product.
