    As far i am concerned, i do prefer hiding those updates for Windows 7, not rejecting what MS is doing on my back but just because with my actual hardware, i won't load Windows 10. I have enough to do with all those updates and hotfixes around for 7.

    Windows 10 have to be a new gen OS on a new machine with the proper hardware i choose, which might not be same kind of mounting as my actual that would become a backup computer. Gonna cost me few $$$$ sooner or later, anyway.

    Hardware is only not compatible because M$ is stuck in the mobile first world adding new Unneeded hyper state crapware
    Otherwise it in general works well,
    But M$ doesn't care about desktops as far as I can tell otherwise M$ would do away with these new features when a battery is not needed to run it
    Instant Go kill it like a rabid dog.

    Why would you need to reserve your copy of windows 10 if you have a whole year to upgrade?

    Looks like that's their come-on to run the Upgrade advisor.

    I don't know how they're missing that a phone Lock Screen is completely redundant and idiotic on a desktop. I have submitted feedback, posted it in MVP channels, and guess we're going to have to raise more of a fuss.

    LF I have issues remembering last week :)
    Don't feel bad. I have to check my driver's license every morning to remind me who I am before I can check the obituaries to make sure I didn't die the day before.

    Surprisingly enough killing the lock screen in group policy actually slows booting down not speeding it up

    I suppose M$ is really looking at business environments than home to constitute a lock screen,
    But simply logging out does the same thing really beside broadcasting alerts email address to anyone with access to the room

    Bah, that's resume well we are entering a new Microsoft age. That's remembering me how i gently had a smile the day i went in services.msc to disabled the WWAN configuration service, sure i need that one on my heavy weighted 7 desktop PC!

    Mike I have it Enabled to not show Lock screen in Policy but still getting it since I upgraded to latest build.



    I don't like having to use a mouse to toss the Lock Screen up, then put in my password. It's like a cartoon where there are a dozen doors to get through.

    Microsoft think of your health...training your wrists and fingers to cartoons you through the doors.

    At least its not walls!
