  3. Please: Don't Force Windows 10 (Ode de Seuss, Green Eggs and Ham)

    It may just be a little quirk,

    but on my machine it just won't work.

    It turned my machine to a flaming brick.

    If they keep it up I'll leave quite quick.

    It might seem a little rash,

    but they can't force me to install this trash.

    Microsoft sets stage for massive Windows 10 upgrade strategy

    Microsoft at their best again..

    And this worries me they are flipping settings that a user has clearly made themselves, deliberately and explicitly said they do not want to upgrade to windows 10, and Microsoft are showing no respect whatsoever for that choice.

    I'm not sure if it's desperation or sheer arrogance, but one thing for sure it is not endearing them to the users, at least ones in the know. Two friends of mine have upgraded thinking that they had no choice, users bandwidth allowance is being used against peoples will, it really does shock me that Microsoft think this is 'okay' behaviour.

    I wonder if Brink's solution here:
    Upgrade to Windows 10 Update - Enable or Disable in Windows 7 or 8.1 - Windows 10 Forums
    Will still work... ??

    I had the same question in mind the moment I read that computerworld article.

    Out of the article:

    "according to the developer of a tool that blocks such upgrades."

    Developer who makes a tool is the source, free, but asking donations.

    "The lack of reports online, including on Microsoft's own Windows 10 support forums, argues that the company has not yet started adding the upgrade to Windows Update on Windows 7/8.1 PCs. "

    The above line from the article, gives me pause on this click article, could be just click bait.

    Man makes utility to block upgrades, then complains when a Microsoft update breaks it.

    I don't know where you are coming from. ( Figure of speech only ).
    Why shouldn't people complain when MS update breaks the block ?
    MS can easily just go ahead developing its pet project Windows 10, introduce to the world and let us, the Win 7 and Win 8.1 users, decide if we want it or not.
    The article seems to point to the intention that MS is going to shove Win 10 down our throats whether we want it or not.
    And we should not complain ?

    Yes, I have read that part................ "Before the upgrade changes the OS of your device, you will be clearly prompted to choose whether or not to continue," Myerson promised in October. If you can believe him.
    Point is, we, the Win 7 and 8.1 users, will be pushed/ nagged to change OS. Like we need another coercion in our daily life.

    Let's put aside whether Win 10 is superior to Win 7 and 8.1, that's besides the point.

    Still the choice are up to the end users he whether or to upgrade, Microsoft doesn't have the right to push consumers for upgrading. And they are promised to extended support for Windows 7 until year 2020 which gave reason users will stay with a stable OS.

    At this point there is nothing MS could do that would surprise me when it comes to coercing 7 and 8.1 users to transition to W-10. MS is offering a FREE upgrade to W-10 which they say is the greatest OS ever created and they are practically forcing users to upgrade with almost every trick imaginable short of pulling the plug on 7 and 8.1 earlier than the published timeline and yet the month to month growth rate of W-10 is a pathetic 1+%. MS can't be too happy with those numbers.

    As long as my 2 (8.1) PC devices are technically viable they will never see W-10. Since they are both less than 2 years old I figure I can go at least 3 years and probably 5 using this same hardware. I know when the times comes to buy new hardware it will most likely come with W-10 because that will be the only Windows OS available but 2023 is a long way off.

    Microsoft will force users to download Windows 10 even if you did not install Get Windows 10, Windows Update will still upgrade, sorry. To prevent Windows Update from doing this, you must disable updates. And since I upgraded, Windows 10 is so unstable in most computers even mine with a pretty configuration so DO NOT UPGRADE. The last solution is to disable WIndows Update and to slipstream updates everyday.

    look how quick they dropped support for ME...

    i just bought a pc so i could have windows 7 on it...
    can you just disable windows updates altogether?
    you used to be able to do it on 98...
    block, delete, remove in three different places
    so there was no possibility whatsoever...
