    Life would only get serious if the upgrade was running. If you shutdown your computer while it was updating you would pretty much "brick" your machine and have to reinstall the OS and programs from scratch, and hopefully restore you data from backup. However, I don't think that's possible. I haven't seen or heard of an upgrade running with nothing saying so on the screen. Just the upgrade running while people were away or sleeping. What's more likely to happen is you walk in and see the upgrade countdown screen on your monitor. If you freak and shutoff the power then yea, you're hosed.
    I'm just trying to see if there is any way possible for a computer to get upgraded to Win 10 without the users knowledge.

    Another interesting article:
    Microsoft’s Windows 10 push is effective, damaging, desirable, and deceptive | Ars Technica

    "But automatic installs, if this is indeed what has happened, push things too far. Switching to Windows 10 is too significant and too error-prone for this to be acceptable. Changing the behavior of the X button is borderline malicious. This is the kind of stunt that you would expect of a spyware installer, not an operating system from a company that should know better. Windows 10, or at least its installer, has become little better than malware, and that's something that Microsoft needs to very publicly apologize for and fix."

    My two cents:
    I don't think this fiasco could blow over quickly enough!
    And... I don't think it's going to, either!
