    Recently, a small business owner from California Teri Goldstein successfully sued Microsoft for $10,000 in “compensation for lost wages and the cost of a new computer”.

    In her plea, Goldstein maintained that the update began on her computer without her consent and then it failed, leading her computer to continuously crash and becoming a hassle to use.

    The court ruled in her favor and so won the case. Last month, Microsoft dropped their appeal and Goldstein received a $10,000 payment from the company.

    Following the interest that this case generated, Teri now has a class action lawsuit starting against Microsoft in both the US and Canada

    sorry cant post links yet :death: from betanews & trubune coms


    Do you think the lawsuit ms faced in usa california will change the future of 10?

    Do you think they will make beta bigger, change updates to older windows style, make special edition for place with consumer protection laws?

    do you not think this will affect how ms move forward into the future? i think this is on discussion to those who already have it

    Windows 10 anniversary update, you think maybe this will cause problems on some systems? have ms thought of this? will it be mandatory? will more people sue?

    what changes will ms make because of this, i think will affect those with 10 already

    if admin want to move thread, pls move, i think it is in proper place but i dont mind where

    just talking, want to get along with all, i think i upset 1 person already o_O

    I don't think it will affect Microsoft at all--mainly because I don't believe it...;) I think Microsoft would be fairly stupid to pay out $10k simply based on a highly incredible, hard-to-believe upgrade sob story--because if they did pay it out they'd be deluged with similar stories trying to wring $10k a pop out of Microsoft, too...!...;) Under no circumstance could upgrading to Windows 10 destroy anyone's computer...that's ludicrous. To open the floodgates like that would be really stupid on Microsoft's part. I think it far more likely this is one of those Internet hoax stories that pop up on a regular basis--in this case, a story started by someone trying to give Microsoft a hard time.

    Personally, I have no sympathy whatever for people who start businesses in which a personal computer is to play a key and fundamental role, but yet they choose to remain pretty ignorant about how that computer functions...;) Nope, I have no sympathy at all--but then, again, I find the story hard to swallow anyway...!

    You have to get used to criticism and deal with it simply with your opinion.MDL is A democratic forum.And by the way I criticized

    Win10 in it's early stages but now with V.1511 Build 10586.420 everything is fine and now I like Win10.

    you can get court documents online search, ms put out statement about it

    "California is one of the strictest states in the US regarding consumer rights," Goldstein told us. "There is a California Uniform Commercial Code which protects consumers. In section 1792 it clearly states that all products and services sold or distributed in California have an implied warranty to be fit for purpose.

    "This code overrides any corporation's user agreement form. Microsoft knew that its Windows 10 was not fit for purpose and allowed its release anyway.

    In a judgment handed down in March, Microsoft was ordered to pay $10,000 (£7,500) to Goldstein, and $90 towards her costs. Microsoft appealed the decision but dropped this action last month. A spokeswoman for the Windows maker told us what it also told the Seattle Times last week: Microsoft "dropped its appeal to avoid the expense of further litigation."

    i think ms will have to rethink stuffs, maybe insider group must get much bigger to have most bug corrected before mandatory update,, maybe special Windows 10 California edition

    The only thing this means to me is if MS is sued in any big way, who do you think is going to pay for it, yes the price of Winders 10 has just gone up.:worthy:

    the new model for ms is windows 10 is last windows, now only big major updates, this will surely cause hardware problems in future

    if ms add feature to 10 it must be compatible with all systems running in place like usa california

    forget about those not using windows 10, think about future with current vision of ms, no more new windows only mandatory updates and packs which will add new functions and features that were not purchased, or upgraded to at time of user installing 10, or buying new system with 10 on it.
