    The thing is didn't MS say that problematic W8 update was mandatory (I could be thinking of a different update though)?

    It didn't affect me as I'm not running W8.
    I was referring to the 8.0 to 8.1 update/upgrade. There were some that couldn't upgrade to 8.1 because their CPU was missing a feature required in 8.1. They are stuck running 8.0. Microsoft treated the 8.1 upgrade like a SP so end of support for Windows 8.0 is 2 years after the release of 8.1. It's something like that. I just got up and haven't had my first cup of coffee yet. Anyway, support for 8.0 is shorter than it normally would have been.

    I think it was one of these: What are PAE, NX, and SSE2? - Windows Help

    I will be very disappointed if M$ takes the approach Win 8.x has of you must update to the next version, whether you like it or not, to be able to keep getting security updates, which is what it sounds like Nadella is talking about.
    If you go to this thread below, you'll see that's precisely what I mentioned back in September. Windows will be updated sort of like Google Chrome, where you don't even really know what version you're on. It's just the most current version, all the time.

    Windows to be called Windows 10

    Yeah, I think your right, I think it was one of those features. It would be older hardware that would catch you out. My oldest CPU is a Athlon II, and all my PC's have AMD CPU's. It didn't affect me.

    It really doesn't need to be that old. Some CPUs by design don't support at least one of them.

    I'm got/getting lucky squeezing by with a Intel duo core Pentium D. I'm pretty sure the prior generation didn't support one of them if I remember correctly.

    To be honest I'd rather wait a but more and get the product we deserve rather than a rushed bit part upgrade as previously.

    That is the one I was thinking of. :)

    Some people stated that their machine was purchased with W8 pre-installed and they couldn't update/upgrade.

    I think Wynona was one of them. She's seemed to be pretty disappointed by it and rightfully so.
