Windows 10 creeps even closer to landing on your PC

Time to start scrutinizing your patches/updates even more closely.....

Quote:
Microsoft made good Monday on its promise to give Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users a shove toward Windows 10.

The shove arrived in the form of Windows 10's shift from an "optional" upgrade to a "recommended" upgrade.
Quote:
Anyone who has disabled automatic upgrades using Group Policy settings or the registry edit will not have Windows 10 automatically pushed to them.

Well ......... I DO kinda like 10 but this heavyhandedness is really getting out of hand. Seriously considering dropping back to 7 or 8.1 at this point. Lol, Zorin/Unbutu is looking better and better too. And I say this as a MS fanboy too

Only shit has to be pushed down your throat. Good food will find it's way all by itself.

After seeing kb3112343 and it's status and it's definition I doubt I will be in any rush to download and install any so called Important updates
Most the others only say Remote code execution yada.....

The problem avoiding "Important" updates is that you may be avoiding genuinely important security updates. As this article states the documentation may be insufficient to make a proper assessment.
Windows Update patches KB 3112336 and KB 3112343 are all about Windows 10 | InfoWorld
What do you do?
I plan to keep installing Important updates and hope the worst that can happen is is a Windows 10 update screen that I can ignore. If it's forced on me I'll go back to a W7 system image offline and attempt to remove the offending KBs. Then hope Windows 10 hasn't been permanently activated.

Here's another question. Say there comes a time you want to run Windows 7 permanently offline, does the OS have a "phone home" requirement that needs to be met or else the OS becomes deactivated? I think the answer is no since I built a system for someone who for various reasons has run it offline for over 2 years now.

I have a friend who uses his PC as a word processor. He has never been on-line and also never told me about any problems - except one when he switched from a mouse with the little ball on the bottom to an optical mouse. That did not work on his table which had a very shiny surface. I piece of carton fixed that problem.

I guess if you want a new driver for a new plug and play device you may need to go online briefly.

When he needs something, he buys the installation CDs - if available. His wife does not allow him to go on the internet. She is afraid he might meet someone via the internet.

I wouldn't worry about that one too much Thrash. Just another monthly Windows update client. As long as you have set your windows update settings correctly and don't install KB2952664 and KB3035583 then it won't do anything. Plus, if I remember correctly, you have GWX control panel installed so I wouldn't be concerned about it.

RAM usage creeps up?
Hi Folks, I'm on the RTM build (one of the custom "touched" builds) and I've noticed that my RAM usage seems to rise the longer I'm on. For instance: Yesterday I came home from work and started my machine. After startup the RAM was at around 27% just idling. I then checked my mails, looked at...
