    I have helped 12 people who had upgraded their computers to Windows 10 and then got very angry. They were casual home users who had no background in computers. The first question has been where are my IE favorites and what's Cortana. Most of them hated Edge and want to know why they can't play DVDs anymore. After putting IE back on the task bar and customizing their screen to what they were used to they were Happy. Those coming from Windows 7 are not happy losing their games but after showing them the online games they were just OK with that. I can't imagine how many calls Microsoft has received from people who are lost after the upgrade. MS has a lot of courage to push Windows 10 so hard but I guess they figure it has to be done. I have given several people instructions to follow after they upgrade to Windows if they are unhappy with Edge and default programs like the image viewer. It is hard to explain to them their loss of playing DVDs without more anger. I have trained a couple of people so they can help their friends and family out after the 10 upgrade and that is going smooth. It has been a rocky road for people who know very little about computers and just want to look at their e-mail, browse the internet and play their home videos on DVD. All of the problems have been fixable but not by the casual users I know who don't care what their OS is.
    I generally agree with everything you have said with the exception of one statement:

    MS has a lot of courage to push Windows 10 so hard but I guess they figure it has to be done.

    It's not courage it's ARROGANCE ! and it does not need to be done! It's all about $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ $$

    I think you are right. But actions like that will eventually erode their customer base.
