    Windows 10 Pro x64

    That being said, we would encourage everyone to upgrade because Windows 10 is the best Windows ever – familiar, safer, faster, and full of innovations. After any upgrade, you can easily go back to your prior version of Windows within 31 days if you choose. We do this by keeping a full copy of your previous operating system on your device – including apps and settings – for the first 31 days following your upgrade. At any time during the first 31 days, you can go to “Settings->Update and Security->Recovery and Uninstall Windows 10” to return to your prior version of Windows.
    And of course, if you choose to upgrade, then you will have 31 days to roll back to your previous Windows version if you don’t love it.
    if you choose to upgrade (our recommendation!), then you will have 31 days to roll back to your previous Windows version if you don’t love it.
    Ok we get it... 31 days. What happens after that? Some have stated their old PID keys still worked after 30 plus days when they decided to revert back to their old OS so that's good news. But I also note here how many times MS stressed 31 days so I wonder if there's more to come after that should one take longer than 31 days to revert back? Seeing how "aggressive" Microsoft is going to get in pushing Windows 10 out who knows what this might mean in the coming months?

    Just a thought.

    BTW I'm running Windows 10 on two machines and loving it, so my question is not MS hate. Thank you.

    I wouldn't trust anything they say , i have all auto update options turned off in Win 7 and and just check manually for security updates but to my disgust when i logged on yesterday i saw the "get Windows 10" logo in the bottom right hand corner of my laptop again .

    They are really pissing off a ton of people with this and now they plan to change it to recommended next year LOL .

    By fair warning, I meant being up front about their plans to do it, and not just doing it without any warning what so ever. I don't agree with the downloading the files needed for the upgrade in the background either. That should be a user yes no option. Asking upgrade to 10, yes no, just before you shut down and or reboot is a very bad move. IMHO Makes me wonder who's calling the shots on that one? How can they possibly think this won't piss people off and alienate them to Windows users? Having no control over updates was just the beginning I guess.

    I don't know about "forced". At any rate don't we pretty much have the same thread here: Microsoft pushes Windows 10 upgrade to PCs without user consent. Seems to me we're rehashing the same old news. And I'm pretty certain that V3 news article you linked to is going to pretty much say what's already posted in the news article here, although with a slightly different spin as noted in the title

    It's just the Roll Back feature that is limited to 30 days. Well 31 now I guess. It won't work after that period. It looks to me that they are just being due diligent in telling you, you only have 30 days to use it. They are just making sure you know you only have 30 days to use it. Would you rather they said nothing and let you find out on your own that it won't work because you waited too long? After 30 days you have to use other means to go back to your old OS. I did a clean install of 8.1 on my other desktop PC well after the 30 day period, and had no issues reusing the key that was in use when I upgraded that PC to Windows 10.

    Yeah, the way I understand it, or read it, is the update that sets you up to upgrade is being installed automatically via Windows Update. You can still say no, at least for now anyway.

    Um, I think most would want to go to the Consumer release, not the Insider Preview release? The Consumer build is what you get via Windows update.

    Yes you are right. I hope that they update the RTM ISO with the November 2nd update on it.
