    Well I for one, do not hate anyone, I also love my windows 10 Pro, even with a few things that I don't like about Windows Pro, over all I am liking it more each day. Don't care for some of our features, but ya can't have everything. Can't comment on "graters" cause I have no idea what the heck that means?? On my other comment, I wasn't talking about the "one liner" I was talking in general terms.
    Typo, it was supposed to be Greaters . As in those that think its great.

    I was just wondering what the OP thought about the article. And it doesn't effect me.. he asked for an opinion and he got one. Don't go kicking the bunny because you don't like the answer to a question you asked.
    That comment wasn't directed at any body in particular, just people in general. Just so you know.

    OK, just wanted to be sure you didn't think I was talking about you in particular.

    With this one it's the slippery slope that worries me, when Microsoft was first caught sneakily downloading Windows 10 to users it claimed it was 'The Industry standard' then backed out of that statement when asked for other examples, in a year or two it may very well be the industry standard and then the principle of downloading any upgrades, updates they see fit is established as normal even a whole new O.S. except you may not have a choice.

    We have already seen solitaire becoming a payware* App, Windows 10 being very intrusive, being very cagey about exactly what they are installing on your system, and downloading things like Office demo's in the background (for our convenience of course) my guess being this is the tip of the iceberg I really wish they wouldn't do things like this 'for my convenience' I have absolutely no interest in Office especially as local governments here are moving to open source software and Libreoffice is free.

    I just wonder what 'for our convenience' will look like in a few years ?

    *made up word for apps that ask for payment for extra features that are included in an operating system.

    Edit: for terrible grammar to even terribler grammar

    It was a snarky reply by "Gold Member". I'm done, you all have a good night and rest of weekend. :)
    Hi Popeye

    Sometimes people really don't have a problem, they may love Windows 10 and also love the way it is delivered, I think you have to have a bit of a thick skin on forums, you are after all dealing with and opening yourself up to a diversity of opinions some of the time they will almost certainly be the opposite of yours (or mine).

    To deal with forums properly you have to a point ignore others views, unless of course you think they have a point i found rarely is it a personal attack.

    Peace.. zoo

    IMO I think MS got a little pushy with "Get Windows 10"/GWX via updates on my 8.1 that I had to ward off. I feel their approach was wrong. It's not that I didn't mind the "ad" to promote a free OS upgrade. When I push the button it should give choices "Yes, I want to upgrade" or "No, not at this time", then simply go away. Even a choice with the latter of "Come back to remind me in 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, or a week before free trial expires. Just don't keep nagging. Reminds me of a bad spouse.

    OTOH, if it's MS's "#1 customer support request" then I don't see a problem of attempting to make it clearer as to where to get it. Any company would.

    Also, I see by Myerson's blog that the author linked there's a choice to turn it off in 7 & 8/8.1. As long as there's a choice I see no problem.

    But as I stated, there should be a choice right off the bat.
    I agree with you all the way..

    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. I also don't understand, you get the notices on Windows 7 and 8.1, but not on Windows 8.0 itself. How did 8 get a reprieve?

    What I really wish is that Windows 10, would just go away. I am not fan at all, 8 grew on me, but 10 has no chance of creeping onto my PC.

    Microsoft is behaving more and more like Apple, where a completely closed system has always been the culture.

    Steve Jobs thought all users are idiots and untrustworthy to make their own decisions when it comes to hardware or software.

    That's always been the draw to DOS and Linux, where the users retain the control of their own systems.

    Windows 8.0 is not included in the online free offer. You have to upgrade to 8.1 first. As far as upgrading online goes via Windows update. If you boot from an ISO you can likely upgrade to 10 from 8.0, like you can from Windows 7 that doesn't have SP1. But 8.0 doesn't get the GWX app via Windows update. That's my understanding anyway.
