    I am curious, the article said you could turn off notifications for Windows 10 on Windows 7 and 8, but didn't really say how. OR do they mean you can just turn turn off updates, which really isn't the same thing.
    Good question. I don't and won't know since I hid the 2 updates that starts the process to download GWX.exe. Hopefully someone else has that answer.

    Usually, there is a tool released to business customers to block stuff like this from downloading on their networks. Mainly to stop the end user from upgrading the PC without IT's consent etc. That usually then leaks to the Internet. I haven't heard a whisper of that happening so far. The IT guy in a large company that uses WUS can block those individual updates from ever reaching any PC on the internal network. Not so easy for portable devices and BYOD. Assuming they aren't already running Windows 10.

    This is at least a partial explanation for Microsoft's heavy handed tactics. I can't imagine this W-10 adoption rate is meeting their expectations.

    Forcing users to upgrade, however, is a double-edged sword: while some might actually like Windows 10, others could be outraged with this approach and decide to go back to Windows 7 or a non-Windows OS altogether.

    That is amazing even after forced downloads and nagware they cant really make significant headway. looks like Linux is being listed along with 'others' in the last chart. notice Windows 7 has hardly moved no wonder they are targeting it with sneakware.
    It would be interesting to see just how that would have gone had they not done the crafty with the ticked optional update.

    They need to make Bing at least half as good as Google before they start encouraging people to use it.

    Works ok with Edge so could be something to do with IE11 which I don't have or use now since coming to windows 10;
