Wow. I guess I posted this in the wrong place.Coke Robot;433201
Although what amuses me is that people will dive head first into a new smartphone OS update on day one, the MOST vital computing device used today, a lot people's way of communicating to the outside world, without any disregard or concern whatsoever. apple is so notorious for day one bugs that don't get fixed for several weeks. android I can understand because only the last 100 million people that bought an android device can get the update within the year.

Patch Tuesday feeds win 10 pop-up to win7 users?
There are many presumptions in your post. The thing is, many respectable blogs have been following, and this past week has not been kind to MS. And the OP info is fuel to the fire, IMO.
It's not the OS. it's the tactics. Android, Apple, I know what I'm getting into. But to 'accidentally' upgrade Win7 users? 'It's free' is not an excuse. 'Better' is subjective. 'Corporations have the right...it's free.' =crazy. Only the 'lame' and 'old' is insulting.
Maybe your comparison might be more applicable if MS had a major share in ARM and smart devices, but they do not. The Surface products look very nice indeed, but the corporate culture is stinking this past week, and it is a turn-off to many of their base: the majority being win 7 users.
Well that's who took over for Steve Balmer when he stepped down! This is the lame thinking you are seeing there as they try to feebly cover up just what their plans had been. The problem is and what resulted in seeing the petition to start with is most users automatically know when something isn't right! You don't have to be any OS geek to smell what was being shoveled!
The back fire is taking place as I was feeling would come out of how MS was handling things at this time. It reminds me of one interview with BG right after 8 was first out about how he claimed to prefer the Start menu and Windows or over Metro. You can take that as a factual statement or "saving face in the public spotlight"?! Likewise the CEO's statement there has to be taken with a grain of salt for very similar reasons only this time by surprise attacks on how 10 is being brought in!
For the Windows "Fan" or "Geek" on the other hand especially those who custom build their own desktop cases as well as take of the OS problems they are far more likely to look for and post questions in order to get answers for things if not able to find out for themselves.
That's where you end up at the opposite end of the totem pole when it comes to experienced vs dumb founded. not including everything in between expert and .... "Uninformed"?! Yet I've seen enough uninformed still find their way onto forums like these! Uninformed novice users still doesn't qualify as being dumb however! "Lacking in Experience" is the much better suited expression.
Same old repetitive, I want this, I want that, what can I do on W10 that I cannot do on W7.
Some want to hang on to their teddy bear, whilst other seek technological advancement.
The answer is simple, you have a choice if you don't like W10, there other options.
Please, post your moaning whining and dissatisfaction on the appropriate forum, not on W10.
Or you are just misinformed.
I have a friend who said he was going to switch internet hosting companies. I asked him why. He said, they have too much downtime.. so I went and checked things out... statistically they had better uptime than any of the providers he wanted to switch to, but those providers didn't release regular reports on their downtime and give notices when they occurred (even if it was only for a few seconds and affected only a small percentage of their customers). The company he used did.
In other words, because the company was so transparent and up front about their level of service, the impression was created that they had poor service, while the competitors who had worse service were looked at as better options... because they kept their mouths shut.
People need to learn that EVERYONE is doing this. Microsoft isn't going to change, they're just making you aware of it.
Most of what MS is doing they are doing in Windows 7, but they're not telling you they are. Windows 10 actually gives you MORE control than Windows 7 does in this regard.
