Hello everyone -first post!
I've been following this thread and the super-long 'KB All Stars' thread -thanks to all for the WU info -it's proved to be invaluable!
Currently preparing for the next GWX onslaught now that Xmas has passed . . .
M$ are cranking up the pressure:

Forbes Welcome

Use Win7 'at your own risk' -! Ominous!

Yep high alert on all windows updates listed as Important or not
I rarely bother with anything but Important updates anyway but if any refer to 10 at all skip.

Possibly one will finally say Prevent remote code execution from M$ and win-10

I have posted it before and I will post it again.

Microsoft will do anything, and I mean anything to get users off of Windows 7.
Cheat, misinformation, scare tactics, backdoor drop ins using Updates or what ever they can think of.

Microsoft wants W-10 app store big time.
Microsoft wants W-10 on their own hardware.
One would wonder why when they already have 90% of computer market.
Simple. They want to go the Apple way.

If Apple can make the kind of money they do by controlling everything and they only have about 6% of the market, just think how much money Microsoft could make doing it the Apple way when they have 90% of the market.
Once Microsoft locks users into W-10, their app store and hardware they will become a huge Apple like the world has never seen.

Some will say if Microsoft is successful doing it the Apple way they will just use another operating system. Okay, what.
Realistically at the present time their is Apple or Microsoft operating system for the mass market. Sure some techie people will find something else to use but the masses (billions of users) will not do such a thing.
Unless a company or person with very deep pockets creates a new operating system their isn't really much of a selection.
Right now we have Apple and Microsoft telling the mass market, do it my way or else.

I disagree on the hardware, I don't see that happening. Oems for one. I know the U.S. government would most likely not approve a merger with computer companies. Comcast didn't get approved, so I can not see Microsoft getting approved either.

I don't believe that Microsoft needs approval to have it's own hardware.
It would be like GM needing approval to have it's own engines.

But we have seen governments that will take Microsoft to court for just about anything.
All Microsoft would have to do is throw Apple in the picture. What's up judge Apple has been doing it for years.

I miss my Warp. Too bad IBM bailed on market segment. I was there and watched it happen.

You know, if 10 let me choose when to install it, keep the Classic GUI, change system fonts to what I prefer without a Registry hack, didn't force updates, didn't report back to the MotherShip and to Uncle Sam, use keyloggers, display advertising, make sure all my old software will work, or didn't relentlessly violate my privacy, even I would consider using it.

People get what they pay for. To me, M$ trying to force 10 upon us for free is sufficient proof that it's a turd.

I try to look at two things when buying something. Price and Value.
W-10 is free but I see no value.
It would suck up one of my valuable Windows 7 COA keys ($140.00) and give me no value.
On top of that I would have to buy programs to stop things like keylogging ect.
Yep for sure I see no value in W-10.

Group policy does have a boat load of entries for just about everything in 10 :/
I hear ya LBB if I didn't want 7 Pro I probably wouldn't of upgraded my original 7 home premium on my new build and then bought an upgrade to 10 pro :/

But it is what it is just means all other 7 installs are off limits to 10 is all
Really liking Macrium everything is now verifying the last one now after installing my games

Win 10 is NOT a turd. A turd can be processed and used for fertilizer. Win 10 isn't even good for that.
