The version of the update that you hid did not unhide itself. A new version was offered.

I realize that the end result is the same... but it might be worth knowing what really happened.
Never the less I'm done playing whack-a-mole with Microsoft.

Thanks.

Think that's what I'll be switching to eventually. It's the one I've been most impressed with so far.

I have Cinnamon on a Desktop and a Notebook, nice program. Linux Mint 17.3 should be out in December, will be the last of the 17.x version but version 18 may be out next year.

Why is Microsoft so keen to get everyone to upgrade?

They want to get as many people as possible on just one system to simplify providing security updates. They had horrible sales and adoption figures for Win 8.x so they are trying to save face by getting as many people as possible on Win 10 to make them look better. Win 10 is closer to their one OS for all devices dream than Win 8.x was. Win 10 has snooping "features" that can't be turned off and forced updates so MSpy can force people to go in whatever direction MSpy wants to go, such as cloud computing. subscription based services, etc.

Obviously M$ wants as many people on 10 and using a M$ account as possible = what business wouldn't want that
They also want a popular and profitable apps store = again what business wouldn't want that too

Problem is always functionality that will take time and might take a new device to achieve.
Upgrading is not an option for me personally 10 Home is not an option and I'm not a fan of upgrade installs anyway.

The compulsory upgrade install is simply a way to ensure that only legitimate systems are upgrade for free -You can easily perform a fresh install after the initial upgrade

Yep I just hate wasting time and the real possibility of failure and a clean install or restore image and starting over again

I upgraded vista to 7 on 2 machines but used a upgrade disk on 1 and it still did not go well integrating os's

Besides having 7 home premium I would need 2 upgrades to make life more fun
Second upgrade would be to 10 Pro for 99.us anyway so 140.us for 10 Pro is a lot more straight forward in my eyes
Now I'm down to is 10 pro worth it :/
Hopefully eventually it will I will check again Christmas holidays and see what has changed.
Of course still using the insiders program
