Nor am I hijacking the thread. Merely pointing out MS has a history of taking another successful business model in the tech field and applying it to their business. Where is Google's primary source of revenue? Advertising.

And you are pointing to something that is not present, but you are afraid that it may be there.
I would suggest you to have a tinfoil hat.

xips may not be far off. Look how Microsoft is advertising windows 10. They install 3035583 and other updates to get people to upgrade 10. I see it as this, I bought a windows 7 computer, that doesn't mean I want a windows 10 computer. I read one of the tech articles saying Windows 10 or later could go ad based. I don't have the link because I read so many articles on 10.

I also read some of those windows 10 updates may be causing problems with windows 7. In fact, I told a poster here to remove those windows 10 updates and change the windows update settings.

Agree.

Am not against 10 (have tested most of the bulids so far and got it running on 1 laptop, waiting to see what the rtm will look like), but am reluctant to support the way MS is pushing 10 by using windows update for (imo) spamming + installing unwanted programs\features\files. But hey, they must be desperate after the w8\metro\mobile acceptance & market share debacle, so I guess they'll try anything.

I am wondering how good is W10? Will it support all games that need W7 too? Is it worth the upgrade? I am so confused.

Thanks in advance.

Dont be confused. Test it yourself and decide. If you dont like it, dont go for it.

You see this as advertising? Microsoft are offering something for free. Don't want it, unintsall the update and you'll never see it again.

Surprise surprise. You never have links.

Too much aggravation here, stop arguing guys please! Opinions are being expressed as facts, facts are (possibly) being misquoted.

I just need to know two things:
* I have a full retail copy of 7/64. If I get to the point of hating 10 after installation, can I wipe the drive and reinstall 7?
* I love 7. It does what I need and has done that for much longer than any other Windows product, all the way back to 3.1.
So - how long can I use it for in safety?

If MS lives up to its promises, 01/14/2020.
