    Mystere, I don't know why but your post came up for a few seconds even though you're on my ignore list. You once asked me not to put words in your mouth. Now I'm asking that you to not tell me what I'm thinking. We will never see eye to eye so if you would please put me on your ignore list.

    You paying? I have no desire to own a mac. I have used Linux years ago and driver support was very limited. I like Windows. I even like Windows 10. I just don't like the idea of MS not allowing us to choose what updates we install. The sky is not fall and the world is not going to stop spinning just because of Windows 10. As for worrying about the changes. It's better to speak up now then wait til it's to late. Remember the squeaky wheel gets the grease.

    MS is trying to take over the world..no wait that's Google..I will take any update that they send to me. The only way is to purchase a Business License. Business's will have a choice we will not. If you don't like the way MS is doing this then stay with Seven or Xp or whatever.

    Right now I'm about 90% for upgrading to Windows 10 and 10% for going back to Windows 8.1.1. At one time I was 100% for upgrading to 10. If I do decide to upgrade to 10 I'm not going to upgrade all my computers like I originally planned.

    That is the way I read it too.

    They won't care, until their device is bricked.

    What makes you think that MS is going to "brick" our devices??

    People who use Chrome (God only knows why) would have an issue with an update that renders it useless.
    For Windows users that would only be an inconvenience as you could use IE (or another browser) until the issue was fixed.

    OTOH, if your OS is bricked you are "s*** out of luck".

    Based on MS' record over the past couple of years, there will be dodgy updates.

    Do you even read the problems people post on the Windows forums (e.g. Black Screen of Death, Perpetual Reboot Loop, etc.)?

    There are stacks of threads related to people being unable to boot their machines after dodgy updates.
    It even happens after non-dodgy updates (due to other glitches or issues with their PCs coincidentally occurring during the update process).

    I assume you weren't paying attention during the "W8 to W8.1" saga either.

    I never said the updates won't work correctly. I don't like being forced to accept updates that I don't want. If I decide to upgrade to Windows 10 MS may be able to force me to accept updates but they can't force me like it.
