Windows 7: U.S. Department of Defense to upgrade 4 million devices to Windows 10

A fascinating 3 pages of discussion on Windows 10. East is East and West is West, and never the twain shall meet,

Great quip...

@4wd And the U.S. Department of Defense will for sure rely on Cortana to conduct all future war operations, Hey Cortana, should we bomb Moscow ?

It makes sense that the W10 being made available to the DoD will be pared down for sure. No telemetry, no Cortana (and definitely no Reachit), no Bing, no Edge, no mandatory windows updates. Kind of looking a lot like W7/8 but with the advantages of the W10 architecture/hardware combo. I'd like this W10.

You have done exactly the same to your quote of my words as you did to Kari's post - you have edited it to suit your own purposes - I suggest that you never try this again, and leave the use of text sizes for things such as tutorial headers etc

this is what I posted ...

What on earth is the big argument. Some people like W10 - so use it. Some other people do not like W10 - so do not use it. Fortunately we can chose. So do that rather than argue.

You got the picture ;O)

And that's the kind of windows I'd upgrade to, also gladly pay for. Not so for the current aberration.

Exactly Wolfgang.
Use what one likes. Use as many operating system as one cares to.

Sorry to see jonnyhillow leaving the forum but then again that was his choice.

I agree with Nigel a quote is a quote and should not be altered in any fashion.
I also recommend when using a quote box, also state where the quote came from.

Example:

From whs post #54

One knows where the quote came from and it has not been altered in any fashion by me.

Back to the subject.
I think we are all to one degree or another in the (I don't really know for sure stage with W-10).
I have read a lot on the subject. I have also tried W-10 although not for quite a few months.
Most articles I read are slanted one way or the other. Microsoft doesn't help much with their released information. Of course Microsoft is going to paint a pretty picture of W-10 and I don't expect them to do otherwise. I try to read in between the lines when Microsoft post a statement. What are they not telling me is my mind thought. Paranoia on my part; maybe.
Beware of strangers bearing gifts is something else that comes to mind.
Microsoft main business is to make money as it should be. So what is the next little trick is Microsoft going to put forward? I don't really know. Something for sure because Microsoft spent a ton of money making W-10 and they will some how make money.
Because I'm a simple person all I want to know form Microsoft about W-10 is show me your goods and how much does it cost.

At the present time I'm in the (I don't really know for sure stage with W-10) and I have no problem waiting to see how things go.

I'm in no hurry. W-10 isn't going any place as far as I know. I can wait, watch and make a decision on W-10 for my use later.
Of course I like Windows 7 but that doesn't mean I'm not able to use something new if it suites me.

I do not hate W-10. It just does not suite me at the present time. Your mileage may very.

Yea for some reason it always comes down to one or the other when we should be able to use all in harmony
No reason to get rid of any.

I think those who choose not to change from e.g. Windows 7 would be more relaxed in their attitude to Windows 10 if MS respected their choice. It shouldn't be necessary to go through all the GWX Control Panel rigmarole in order to avoid being hijacked and press-ganged into upgrading to Windows 10, it should just be a case of MS asking which of their products we'd like to use and then responding to our choice with the option of checking a "do not ask again" box, while restricting Windows Updates to security and other important but non-marketing matters. Their present approach is doing no-one any favours, least of all MS themselves.

Bingo dude! *Applauds*
This is the whole deal.

Now that I recall about the retail selling of Windows 10... could it be that, as I think, this free upgrade is an experiment to release a full version (retail)... that probably, prooooobably, will come without telemetry, and more options to control Windows Updates and such? Maaaan, that would be a dream come true!

I'm researching anonymous / encrypted e-mail right now, and my understanding of other people's studies is that there's just no simple way available to do it, especially if you need to exchange mail with any number of people you don't know. I'd be glad if anyone could point me to material showing otherwise...
