Windows 10 upgrade is FORCE installing to Win 7/8/8.1 PC's, without user consent!

    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.

    Microsoft has given no-one any reason to trust them. And the irony is that they are supposedly balking at the NSA for "forcing" them to hand over the information (yeah right).

    If they stopped stealing data from their users, they wouldn't have anything to hand over to the NSA.

    In the case of a friend of mine, Skype was crashing until updates from M$ were installed, M$ driver updates included! So, never say never...

    In times like these Simplix is mother, Simplix is father :D esp. given the fact WU gets stuck in a loop and doesn't work!

    Well atleast they stoped that force upgrade but still tacting users with the telemetry updates so you still need to act in order to protect your system from all this microsoft bulls**t!.
    From now after all this my trust is gone.. updates installation process become now very very very annoying because i hate to check every individual update before start to install any of them..
    And if u miss watch something your system will be poisoned with some bulls**t... wia official updates what a wonderful stuff going on lately.. THX MICROF**KOFF.

    Thanks to everyone who put in the effort on all of the
    kill 10/telemetry scripts/programs. They have been a
    big help.
