No Networkrail, it will go the way of the previous M$ offering. Vista, XP, support has been discontinued.

I was sort of wondering (without wishing to make a new thread on this) which updates, if any, would be recommended to try and install before end of support next week.

I just put a new machine together with Win7 Pro and the Simplix update package. Since then it's downloaded ~10 or so "important" (lol) updates before I remembered to turn that off, though I put a stop to auto-installing them via group policy. I'm very interested in avoiding the Win10 "upgrade" nagware in particular, and I don't know which update number it's in. But I wouldn't be opposed to actual security updates if available (I mean, possible noob question but, if MS says it's a security update, can we actually trust them that it's just that?).

Just did a chat with MS agent...

did said no extended support purchase for end users like me...

said most issues caused by users insufficient hdd storage space thus have issues during Win 10 updates...

the amount of updates and more updates to patch previous update issues... think this would need bigger hdd storage space too

Windows 10 uses a significant amount less disk space than windows 7 Did on install so this statement from the agent is confusing bordering on incompetent

Faster booting, smaller footprint make Windows 10 an easy upgrade for old PCs | Ars Technica

If you consider the differences between the lifetime designs of Windows 7 and windows 10 ...

Windows 7 needs room for up to ten years of updates, windows 10 only needs enough space for eighteen months and windows 7 23GB without updates is around eight GB larger on disk than Windows 10 is including updates 15GB.

If you have enough space to run Windows 7 you have more than enough for windows 10

Note   Note
figures quoted are for OS only - No user software is included


During the update process the install creates an Backup of the existing install that remains for ten days or so for rollback that could cause issue on large installs on small hard Disks which may be twhat the MS agent was getting confused with
