Windows 10: Microsoft sets stage for massive Windows 10 upgrade strategy

    I have Windows 10 on a new cheap Lenovo 2-n-1 I bought. I love it on that device. Well, love is kind of a strong word, it does have some maturing to do, but in any case, no complaints. However, on my global warming tower that I use for gaming, video editing, and voice recognition when my arthritis kicks in, I'm still running Windows 7 pro and only allowing security upgrades. I tried Windows 10 on it. The drivers were just not mature. Those did improve, and I reinstalled it. However, some programs, like my voice recognition, had glitches, despite the vendor's claim otherwise. So Windows 7 pro it is. I have a licensed copy of Windows 10 pro though, so for me to wait at least a year before installing it on my space heater isn't an issue. My point being that the owners of the PCs often know when and why they want to upgrade. Microsoft's new business model probably seemed like a good idea at the time. However, unlike Apple, Windows runs on a plethora of hardware and tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of programs both commercial and vertical. Free upgrades are great, but not everyone can do them, nor does everyone want to. There are no wrong answers in the upgrade "discussion" unless that answer is we are upgrading your machine despite what you decide.

    Hi WHS, been a while. . .why not try it out in a VM to see if it is something you may or may not want to use. Been using it now since the Insider Program Started back in 2013, and like others I have not found all the problems (some minor) they have. Just loaded it up in boot camp on my new iMac 27" 5 K, and am very pleased. . .Good luck with whatever direction you take. . .:)
    Thanks Lee. The VM route is a good idea. I shall do that.

    I can't tell you the number of times on my 8.1 system I have selected to " hide" the update that puts that icon in the taskbar - and when selecting to hide the update it actually tells you it will not offer it again - only to have it return again.

    I am actually contemplating upgrading to 10 now, which is why I am now reading these forums, but I wonder why the big push, first by offering it for free and now insisting we continually be reminded of this in our taskbar...

    Using a VM lets you dodge the various driver/hardware issues that have been reported by some people (on real machines).
