MS is shoving them to the side of the road... and saying, "If you ain't pc literate plus...get out of the way and shut your pc down old codgers."

    Lot of old codgers with laptops, desktops with no one to help them. They have children afar or someone in the family who is a little knowledgeable, but doesn't have the time to help grandma and grandpa. Just saying...
    Don't be cheeky! Many seniors like me are tech savvy.

    You need to select Defer Updates to delay the Creators Update. You can further defer major Windows updates like the Creators Update using Group Policy –see Is CU now being forced on my system? Go to Administrative Templates \ Windows Components \ Windows Update \ Defer Feature Updates, set Enable then choose Current Branch for Business and Defer for 180 days.

    Well, I'm a tech-savvy senior too (wrote code for vacuum-tube machines), but your response does not address the problem. Most "seniors" have the home version, which does not permit the deferral described. And those who are not tech-savvy (seniors or not) hate things to change. Once they have made the effort to learn how to do things on their computer, it's traumatic to have things change under them through no action of their own.
    This attitude from MS that they can change the way my computer works without my permission is really unacceptable to many people. Unfortunately, there are not any viable alternatives for this user group. Apple is too expensive, and Linux is just plain not usable for the non-techy.
    I was a happy Windows user for many years, and considered Windows 7 to be a great system. I happily installed security updates and nothing else. Now all I feel is resentment and hatred for MS and its policies, but obviously their business model is focused on corporate and VR stuff, and to hell with everyone else.
    I'm desperately trying to get Linux in shape to satisfy my household, but the prospect is pretty remote.

    Why not just stay on Windows 7?

    Because I was forced to a new laptop (the other one crashed and burned) and Windows 7 drivers don't exist.
