Most of us here have been using 10 for well over a year now, but ya, seeing your PC upgrade to 10 like magic would be scary

I feel better !!!

and Brink, I know what happened : I have been seeing these "upgrade to 10 notifications" for so long that I click them away without looking at them
but this afternoon, as I booted up, I looked at the notification : it was a really sneaky new one with a count down.... 60 minutes to hell....
must have been the same this morning, only I did not pay attention and just closed it.... but it kept counting in the back...
wow, did I get a scare !!!!
If you like, give Windows 10 a good play with while it's installed to see how you like it.

You have up to 30 days to go back to previous Windows if you don't like it. :)

Correct, you'll be able to quickly go back to W7 before the 30 days is up if you like, and if you don't delete the Windows.old folder.
