    I really can't see MS automatically updating 7 users to 10 without the users approval. After the 8 & 8.1 debacle where it met with general disapproval they would really upset a lot of users if they forced a 10 update on those that do not want it.
    MS seem to be unaware of what 7 users really want as they continue to provide new OS that are slanted towards touch screen operation.
    I want a computer to do what my computer now does & that is database work, spreadsheet work & general web browsing, not something that is somewhere between a mobile phone & a word processor.

    I would not worry too much. Although I deleted this snooper also from my main system, I would not expect MS to do stupid things. An automatic update to W10 which the user cannot stop is not going to happen.
    He, he, he.... You must have forgotten about the automatic updates/upgrades to Internet Explorer.

    I don't know about that. What about Vista and Win 8.0? Nadella has already said some stupid things (saying something is just a step behind doing something), such as telling women they don't need to ask for a raise, just trust the system.

    They could force an windows 10 to be download but couldn't be installed without having the person agree to the EULA. If the person doesn't agree to the EULA it won't install.
    M$ has been doing things it hasn't done before and has said it will be breaking tradition in the future, such as giving away Win 10 to present users of Win 7 and 8, continuous upgrades instead completely new OSes, etc. Frankly, I wouldn't put it past them to bypass the EULA on Win 10, letting the ones for Win 7 and 8 suffice.

    Here's my guess: Win10 is will be free for the first year. Then to get future updates, you will have to subscribe at a nominal cost (or maybe not so nominal!) Or am I being too suspicious?

    End Users Licensing Agreement. It's the thing you have to agree to when installing most programs and OSes.

    EULA is a "contract" you agreed to when you installed Windows.

    "Just pass it and we'll find out what's in it later." Sound familiar? :)

    Well; Ive been staying away from 10 until they get the final version out just because it seemed to have too many issues with the beta versions.
