    Looks like "Win anything but 10" will not be supported on Skylake and newer chips

    Microsoft updates support policy: New CPUs will require Windows 10 | ZDNet

    In today's blog post, Microsoft says it's seeing "unprecedented demand from our enterprise customers" in Windows 10.
    The major "demand" seems to be MS demanding that everyone who doesn't want it install it anyway. And yet buy an OEM copy of say Win 7, it costs a lot more than Win10. So if 10 is so much better, why are they charging less for it ?

    I just thought I was P.O.ed with M$py. Now, I'm furiously enraged with the miserable, misbegotten, no good for nothing, cotton pickin', stinkin', rotten, dirty, pieces of work! (Actually, my feelings are stronger but Mama and the TOS here told me not to use those words). I was looking forward to Skylake-e and it's reputed increased number of PCI-e lanes and SATA ports. I wonder if Skylake (Cloudlake, considering M$py's penchant for cloud computing?) will allow Win 7 to run in a Linux VM?

    Nutella and his cretinous cronies can go south! I'll even provide the handbasket!

    Just a note the new cpu will also work with some Linux distro's for those that also use a Linux system

    .... Many have posted their own list of hidden updates but these generally include KBs which were not installed for reasons other than Win 10 and telemetry.

    These are on everyone's list:
    KB 3035583 ....
    KB 3068708 ....
    KB 3075249 ....
    KB 3080149 ....
    KB 2952664 ....
    KB 2976978 .... / KB 3021917 ....
    KB 3044374 .... / KB 2990214 ....
    KB 3022345 ....
    Every few pages someone will post their current lists, so if ya read last few pages you should get a decent idea of what others are not installing.
    Nicely done! Your list has all the W10-related updates for Win7 that I've hidden except for
    KB 3046480 (helps determine if .NET Framework 1.1 will be migrated during W10 Upgrade)
    ... yet it only lists the first of the Windows Update Client (WUC) updates: 3044374 & 2990214

    I didn't document the Win 8/8.1 ones, but this is my list of all the Win7 WUC updates (I've hidden them all):

    • KB 2990214 - Apr '15 - WUC: enables ability to upgrade to Win10
    • KB 3050265 - Jun '15 - WUC: allows Group Policy to set "DisableOS Upgrade" key (replaces 2990214)
    • KB 3065987 - Jul '15 - WUC: unspecified "improvements" (replaces 3050265)
    • KB 3075851 - Aug '15 - WUC: fixes mess due to KB3065987 [cuts down WUC memory usage, but hides Update notifications if GWX app is active] (replaces 3065987)
    • KB 3083324 - Sep '15 - WUC: unspecified "improvements" (replaces 3075851)
    • KB 3083710 - Oct '15 - WUC: unspecified "improvements" (replaces 3083324)
    • KB 3102810 - Nov '15 - WUC: fixes slow updates & high CPU usage (doesn't replace any previous updates)
    • KB 3112343 Dec '15 WUC: fix for issues with 3050265, e.g., "8007000E" error message (doesn't replace any previous updates)

    P.S. FYI, before I grew sufficiently wary of M$, I did install 2990214 and later 3075851. Later I uninstalled them and found that doing so cleared my WU history.

    I understand that the website that you linked to states...
    "This update doesn't replace a previously released update."
    ...but Windows Update Catalog states that it does:

    Also, the list of files that are updated indicates that it replaces previous WUCs.

    Hahahaha... just goes to show that Microsoft's descriptions of their updates leaves something to be desired.

    BTW, thanks for pointing to a way to check which updates are being replaced... but it appears I'd need to be using "XP or Windows Server 2003 and later" to access the Microsoft Update Catalog site.

    IE11 on W7 should work with the Windows Update Catalog. That is what I'm using to get there.

    I'm guessing the 'demand' is M$ demanding to the makers that newer chips only work with Win10 and nothing else.
