    A landlord has the right to do anything they like to their property and given a fair notice evict the tenant, demolish the property and rebuild a new one on the site, or remove the tenant or change the terms of use .

    The user of Windows (the software not the hardware) agrees to the EULA when installing - this gives Microsoft the right to do anything they want to the licensed software whilst in use by the licensed user, If you do not like this then you should not agree to the EULA and not use windows, (BTW refusing the Windows 10 EULA during the so called forced upgrade automatically rolls back the install )
    I don't agree that the EULA is the same as renting a place but since the two were used for comparison.. Owners rights are not always that easy if the tenant knows how to use the laws. Carter: Landlords say Newark man refuses to pay rent, trashes apartments, then ties them up in court | NJ.com

    What I am afraid, is that from the conduct of MS, now every single peace of sheet company will make want they want with their customers. They show the path and how to do it. They just put an Update there , to **** people and saying is "Security" for you.
    About the EULA, well, it should be restrict to the very normal Copyright thing. But, they expand it , including things beyond the Copyright, just to full fill their ABUSE of the Customers.
    I am ready with Law, they can keep that for them selfes, if they like.

    Microsoft's drastic upgrade tactic pays off with boost to Win 10 share


    Microsoft's drastic upgrade tactic pays off with boost to Windows 10 share
    Records biggest one-month increase since August 2015 after launching 'click-the-X' trick

    Windows 10 in May recorded its largest increase in user share since August 2015, the first full month after its launch last summer, data published Wednesday showed.

    The impressive increase came after Microsoft began what will likely be its last big push to put the free Windows 10 on customers' PCs, a campaign that started mid-May and featured a much-derided trick to get users to approve the upgrade from Windows 7 and Windows 8.1.

    According to U.S.-based analytics vendor Net Applications, Windows 10 powered 19.4% of all Windows PCs in May, a 2.1-point increase from the month before. Net Applications measures user share -- an estimate of the percentage of the global PC population that runs a particular operating system -- by tallying unique visitors to clients' websites.

    The 2.1-point rise in user share was the second largest one-month gain for Windows 10, bested only by August 2015's whopping 5.3 percentage points. Microsoft released Windows 10 on July 29 of last year.

    Microsoft's own guidelines for dialogue boxes say the red X should NEVER have the same effect as OK.


    • The Close button on the title bar should have the same effect as the Cancel or Close button within the dialog box. Never give it the same effect as OK.
    • If the title bar caption and icon are already displayed in a prominent way near the top of the window, you can hide the title bar caption and icon to avoid redundancy. However, you still have to set a suitable title internally for use by Windows.

    Is windows 10 actually installing without user intervention, offering roll back on refusing the licensing agreement would mean surely that it is already installed in the sense that all the files have been put on the computer in question, and windows 7/8.1 files removed to another place ?

    That's pretty close to what happens. The without user intervention part is IMHO debatable. I clicked the RED X and immediately got a second smaller Windows with one more opt out option. It said "Your all set! Your free upgrade is scheduled for... Nothing happened until that date and time arrived. It happened overnight so the next morning I got a "Welcome to Windows 10" screen", clicking Next got me a "Here's the legal stuff page". I clicked Decline and it did the rollback. How far alone it is in the install is hard to say?
