Just because a lot people mistakenly install the "Upgrade to Windows 10" update since it's checked by default doesn't mean that it happens to everyone or that's it's forced on you.

I have yet to have Windows 10 forced on me from 5 clean installed VMs fully updated.

Please explain how this is forced??

It's not. It's user error.

I installed a clean copy of 8.1 and guess what, the get Windows 10 icon was right there down in the bottom right hand corner, but guess what, I never clicked on it, imagine that.

It doesn't, do you think that if it did I wouldn't notice when I watch almost every post that is made on this network (17 million visitors a day), the only folks I've seen upgrade have wanted to or been not too bright (we have quite a few of those).

You are assuming that everyone is knowledgeable enough to know not to install it; most are not. In fact, not only do the vast majority of people have updates set to automatically download and install, most computer experts advise people to do just that since most people aren't responsible enough to manually download and install them. That makes them sitting ducks enabling MS to take unfair advantage of them.

True, if you disable Automatic Update (and some wayward program doesn't turn it back on for you), Win10 does not get installed.

But note that Auto Update is turned on by default, as is "Give me recommended updates the same way I receive important updates."

Microsoft's racing down a very slippery slope.

If you look at my screenshots above, the upgrade to Windows 10 is an optional update. Optional updates do not get automatically installed by Windows, but only installed by the user that left it checked when they manually checked for and installed updates themselves.

Sadly, that is 100% correct.

But it still gives you all kinds of warnings LF, just as Brink has shown.

No one has to be knowledgeable, they just have to know how to read, now that isn`t asking too much is it ?

It appears that it's easier for them to blame Microsoft forcing it on them than for them to accept responsibility that they installed it by their own actions.
