Once I've installed Classic Shell, stripped away all the Metro stuff and applied several Group Policies to disable things like the Store, OneDrive etc - I actually find Windows 8.1 a pretty decent OS...

I've used a mixture of Office 2007 and LibreOffice. Although I've leaned more towards LibreOffice these days. I use it more than Office now, so I'll probably remove Office altogether soon.

It'll be the final nail in the coffin for me if it switches to a purely subscription based service. Seems like everything is going that way these days, but no way will I pay a sub for it. There are...

Technically Windows has always been rented software, even in older Windows versions. You buy the licence, but it's only giving you the right to use their software. You're still bound by the EULA...

If it's anything like the XP situation then there will be many people using 7 way past the 16 month EOL. I'll use it for a few more years, along with multiple 7 VMs I have set up, then fully switch...

Have to agree with LF here. MS is too focused on getting everybody on Windows 10. Plus, I don't think they want another XP situation on their hands where users & businesses were still using it years...

Does this also affect earlier versions of Windows?
All the articles I've read state it only applies to Windows 10 and Server 2016.

If they pull an update, the next time you check for updates it'll be removed from the list.

That's a blast from the past! I haven't used XP in years mate. I don't even have it in a VM now. Last XP VM I deleted in 2015. :D

I flogged my XP and Vista retail versions a couple of years ago.
