    I do believe some free Apps will show adds, if you have that live tile turned on. And search too I think if web results are shown? There were complaints early on about search showing Adds. In Windows 8 anyway.

    Forecast: Cloudy


    Looks like we're only a few updates away from "Cloud Windows".
    Probably just after W7 is "forcibly" retired by MS in 2020.

    Not really, IMHO. Turn those live tiles Off, no adds. Or pay full price. Or don't use them in the first place. This isn't the first time this has happened. It's been going on long before Windows 10 showed up. Anybody running utorrent will know what I'm talking about. Open it full screen and you'll see adds.

    If nobody is using Win10, MS will be forced to listen to User´s wishes.
    At the moment seems MS does not care at all about user´s, they are solely focused on Enterprises, as the path to impose their UWP-OS to the World.
    We want to have full control over the OS and not the other side round!


    From my side, I installed the Upgrade to Win10 just to get the Activation, and will go back to Win 8.1.

    If nobody was to use W10 it wouldn't exist. Luckily I'm not "Nobody" and like using it. Just like I'm using some lame W7 (in dual boot) on local account with no internet connection just for some games that wouldn't run on anything else. Also have XP on an ancient laptop. So even if W10 was to disappear I could and would still use it.
    What anyone thinks and does is no concern of mine.

    That might be true CountMike but this announcement still reeks of baloney.

    Apologies "threat" may have been a poor choice of words. Maybe I should have said "those contemplating" or something. I meant no offense. I think you get my point though. I see lots of "I'm switching to Linux Posts" but those users keep on posting Windows related questions etc. They don't follow through.
    Everything alright, I did not take it as an offense, just wanted to clarify that I did not threaten anybody Of course I got your point. But it does not really apply to me as I've already partially switched to Linux. All my web activity including emails are done in a virtual machine (Fedora 24 and Linux Mint 18) plus there is also Linux Mint installed on my HDD. So I'm quite ready to make the next step, it all depends on MS's next steps. And before someone tells me: I'm well aware of the fact that MS gives a sh.. if I abandon Windows. But that's the only thing I can do, voting with my wallet. I definitely don't like the direction in which MS is going with Windows 10. Which is very sad by the way since without the questionable measures discussed in this thread it would have been a fantastic os.

    Hi,



    Of course and you can even push it further but I'll shut up.
    Point is you nor me can buy these versions of Windows which I feel is a shame..... Irony is, we would be paying through our noses to actually get less. Well less crap that is.

    There are versions around without Edge (which still does not work as it should anyway), without Media Player and what have you. Basically a desktop version as I and many Win7 adepts would have liked to have but guess what, MS has a different agenda.
    They bring commerce to you now straight to what you thought was YOUR desktop.

    Cheers,
    Missed this post some how. I'm running Education on the PC I'm posting this from. VIA my MSDN key, which is a Retail Key not a MAK key. Retail Key being an option suggests to me that it may be available to consumers, at some point. Cortana is still there, the report is it will be removed in the Anniversary Edition. I'll just have to wait and see if she is removed. If she is, I'll be going back to Pro.

    This is just the beginning, when they get around it, they will just continue removing policies at will, I expect Pro to disappear eventually. I think, that I will give Home version a try, it is slightly faster and subscription fees will be lower.

    I think the more likely course of action would be that a person stays on Windows 7/8 or 8.1 instead of switching to 10. However Linux is really becoming more main-stream, here in Portland we have an outfit that teaches courses free for Linux. Believe me a lot and I mean a lot of people take advantage of that. Ubuntu and Mint has broken down a lot of barriers.

    Face it, for most people browsing, emails, music and videos is the main stay of their internet use, no one needs windows for that anymore.
