Windows 10 has been such a major shift in tactics and policy for MS, it has been somewhat disturbing from the get-go. Though I guess for some the roots were to be found in the XBOne when they Kinect was originally supposed to be always on. I will most likely use it later on on a new machine but it will be due to the lack of support for newer processors and no DX12 on previous versions of Windows. That's another way they are trying to force people to upgrade. Most likely I'll end up dual-booting into Linux and only touching 10 when necessary, with a "metered' internet connection to avoid more "upgrades" and such. I do NOT like being told I HAVE to upgrade. Thankfully previous versions of windows aren't a subscription service so not upgrading won't affect functionality. I'm afraid of Windows becoming an upgrade mandatory program where not doing so will suspend your services. A similar thing was done by SEGA with House of the Dead on Android. I had paid for the app but after a while the license "expired" and the app had to be "upgraded" to the "free" version with its tons of ads. It WOULD NOT WORK without upgrading (and disabling the internet connection didn't help as it insisted on doing a "license check". With everything they've done I fear Microsoft is heading in that direction.
