    This is potentially bad news for W7 and the W8 Series fans.

    MS will be forced to "accidentally" include GWX (or worse) in the monthly update rollups for those operating systems.

    Lol, yes I can see that coming too . or it will be an extension of their gracious offer, as they do not want people to miss out ! I will keep a very close eye on things, It would not surprise me if they had already installed it actually.

  3. I can not use the drop-down menu with IE4WP8

    Yeah, you think they are going to do it for a phone that has 4% market share when every other browser in the world works, including IE 10 on Windows 7 in compatibility mode? If Microsoft wants more than 4% market share they need to produce a phone now
    that supports the websites that are out there, not one that expects the websites to change.

    ++ the future of Microsoft Lumia mobile phones ++

    + I still have some hope that Windows 10 mobile will survive. It would be very disappointing for Microsoft to lose in this competition with a KO // one thing is a bronze medal, maybe silver in some education or business segments (with perseverance gold is
    not on another planet) & another thing is to lose without showing personality // one thing is sure, the Windows 10 mobile OS is better year by year // of course, market share is lower when there is a collection of all the possible marketing strategy errors
    //

    the benchmark for + result for Windows Phone should be a 10% market share // you see there are a couple versions of android (5,6) with great market share, but with limited support // step by step with perseverance success is possible, but you have to be
    in the race //

    I can't imagine Microsoft doing a GWX inclusion, again for W7 or W8. Forcing people into a free software is one thing, but forcing them into purchasing with a continual nag screen is quite another beast. I see First Class Lawsuit written all over that scenario. I also can't see a free offering again, since people have already purchased W10, I would think they would have to refund those purchases, it isn't going to happen.

    I could never see myself buying Windows 10, if a machine comes with it installed (i might use it), thank goodness, I still have 5 unused copies of windows 7, and one Windows 8.1 Pro / with Media Center setting on my desk. Ewww, maybe I will be able to scalp them for huge monies in the future.

    I see them shifting gears, selling Windows 10 at a lowered cost and try to collect revenues via other avenues, apps, office, Cloud services, etc.. Business, small and mid-sized are going more and more Apple/Andriod management, Square and PayPal Here, card services, is easy, efficient, and very low cost to use and maintain.

    But Wall Street doesn't seem to agree with me, so who knows.

    There's something seriously wrong with those statistics. Does Netmarketshare and StatCounter only track American websites or something?

    The entire Australian government has switched to Windows 10 (within the last few months) and I've personally upgraded a few thousand machines to Windows 10 that are going to Vietnam and other countries provided to us for refurbishment by dozens of government schools... getting new hardware specifically for Windows 10.

    Also, what's the point of yet another GWX for Windows 7 when the free upgrade still hasn't ended? Despite the media claiming otherwise, you can still upgrade Windows 7 to Windows 10 for free.

    put 10 on a backup laptop. doesnt seem to have anything I actually want or need. is the future of 10 going to be free and eventually in return a monitor covered with constant ads that cannot be blocked, linked to whatever you are doing on your computer at the time (working at home off the web, working online, net surfing in general)?



    PS - only down side to 7 I see is if I want to do a clean install using my licensed win 7 purchased version going to be a drag doing all the updates since the install disk was made.

    Honestly I'm not surprised, and I'm not worried. Windows 7 is a decent OS, and there will always be a section of users that will NOT upgrade come hell or high water. Microsoft is not financially threatened by being forced to support these systems, as they would have to support Windows 7 until the doom date irregardless - though admittedly it might end up being extended like WinXP's was.

    Many of these people will upgrade when their system fails, or when their software becomes compatible with 10. The important thing is that most are on Windows 10, and Microsoft can now prepare them for the future of Windows.

    This is honestly nothing more than market saturation. We don't need to upgrade our PCs anymore until they die, and a majority of OS upgrades come from OEM purchases. Heck, you can get an Android tablet and Bluetooth keyboard for a lot of blue haired folks and they will be thrilled to run google chat and video conference the great grandkids, type emails and play candy crush. They don't care what the OS is as long as its the one the kids bought them three years ago.

    As for the business users, yes thousands have upgraded. However, millions have not. Many corporations, including where I work, have pilots going, but it's another couple years before that gets off the ground because of leasing agreements, plus a plethora of in-house verticle software that is still moving from fat client to n-tier. I know for us we are also playing with HVDs, which are becoming very popular.(The more things change....) So growth isn't what it used to be in the OS field.

    My first 80's "real" PC was a mac plus. My first real IBM Clone PC was a 286 with 2 meg of RAM and a 40 meg Hardrive. Sucker set me back a mere 2.5k. My point here is that back then upgrades were needed. Either the hardware, because you needed new things like those pesky floating point processors, or the OS, because MSDOS thought 1 meg was more than anyone would ever need for processing and driver space.

    Today, we don't have that problem, thankfully. Even gaming. Except for older farts like me, and gaming professionals/prosumers, most folks are happy with and XBox One or a Playstation. You can now edit video online if your PC can't handle the load, or heck, use your phone. Ironically, Microsoft's zeal to put out newer better faster is bumping up against people who have what they need and don't see the point. Even tablets have this issue now. Microsoft needs to be looking at the new places, like Azure and some of their really cool hardware, for new revenue. The OS stream isn't dry, but she ain't what she used to be.

  10. I sure hope this doesn't turn into another Win10 sux/Win7 sux thread. People will use what they like and/or want. The real beauty of this situation is we're free to use WHICHEVER O.S. we like. Nobodies holding a gun to our head to make us use one or the other ...... or something else entirely! I, personally, really like 10 (with a few beefs) and I really liked 7 (same caveat applies). I'll be sticking with 10 because its pluses outweigh its minuses IMHO, others may feel different.

    Well the first thing that comes to mind are the recent articles on ATMs running Windows XP still. Add to that older programs that run on the OS. This doesn't even necessarily mean it's a machine's primary OS. I know lots of folks who run Windows XP in a VM. They may use it on the interwebs for various reasons and it gets picked up on one of these surveys. Heck, I know of machines still running DOS either in VMs or even on an actual device. If everything is working the way you want, and there isn't a security threat, why not? Now that said, the ATMs mentioned have been hacked, so that's a different animal.

    Agreed, some are actually still running Windows 95. I have a friend who simply refuses to give up his Windows XP machine, that is what he learned on and it what he will use till the day he dies. I got him setup with at least Windows 7 on another computer, but he only uses it for mail and solitaire. I think XP will be around a long time, as will 7 and 8.

    I wish I could get excited about Windows 10.

  14. TBH I don't think you really need to get excited about Windows 10... It's entire purpose for existence is to be transparent to the end user while still being as idiot-proof as is reasonably possible.

    Things are getting pretty funky right now with Apple, so it might be a good time to hunker down and ensure that Windows "Just Works."

  15. The free upgrade is basically finished. Only those who reserved their keys before the deadline are able to upgrade to Windows 10.
