Windows 7: Part 2: Microsoft silently preparing your PC for Win 10

I've got a virtual machine of linux mint - mate running on VMWare's free Player. Very straightforward, intuitive, much like Win7. The best of classic OS design. And I'm wondering why not make the move. MS always has muddied the waters in one way or another. The difference now is that there are viable options.

Yea I don't use Amazon to stream anything I prefer to download purchased content to view without an internet connection like at airports..... that I don't have a wifi account for except a little bitty cell phone
Creating a hotpot with a cell phones wifi costs more monthly,

Besides that I don't use Netflicks or care to watch Microsoft support videos and I'm not sure if Skype uses parts of Silverlight too but I don't use Skype either
So Silverlight is just unneeded it's just that simple,
If you don't use it why have it installed ?

I`m quoting Computer0304, so it`s a serious question

Not sure if he`s serious about asking us why we`re hiding the updates.

We are hiding them because they are prepping our Win 7 computers to receive a Win 10 upgrade via Windows Updates, possibly sneaking it by us sometime in the future and possibly hitting us with nagware to encourage us to upgrade to Win 10. Also, M$ is being much more vague about the purpose of these updates than it usually is. The updates are not necessary for the safe operation of our computers. Even if we did want to upgrade to Win 10, most of us would prefer to do a clean install instead of an upgrade built off an existing Win 7 installation.

I read about that update the other day. Was thinking... What "support" would I need through an optional update? Good to hear that it's advertisements, though.

Yes I did, look at #37

When you quote people and then remove something from the quote it becomes unquoted, but if you kept up you would have seen he asked that question.

Personal choice would be my guess

Or just being silly
Agreed
I believe quoting is working for me,
If you remove too much it might not work correctly.
