Not sure what I'm doing right (or wrong) but I have yet to get a single Windows 10 upgrade notification....EVER.

Let Win 7 Ultimate 64bit.

I even TRIED to get the upgrade icon in the taskbar before it was released.

I upgraded our spare desktop but I have no plans to install on my main system and spend days or weeks getting it back in order.

Ever since I upgraded to Windows 10, my build constantly froze up with no apparent reason.

Couldn't stay with 5hours up time.

 

Even reinstalled 10 from scratch and even with drivers installed on top of it, it would freeze.

 

Came back to 8.1 and already over 1day uptime on my fully configured build and still blazing... Good, because I was begining to think that the PSU was giving up or something... Apparently not.

One more degree worse now: fudzilla.com: Windows 10 might get advertising

What I started to do years ago with my windows machines is whitelisting ips and allow specific dns queries through dnsmasq, as needed on a router. Strange to have to contain it as if it was malware.

For general home use, browsing, playing media files, email, writing and printing etc; most linux distros do the job well. The first setup is a bit harder and would take months for someone to adapt. Since I'm used to editing the registry and the command shell on every win install it didn't bother me much.

It is one of the things that has been an option since release.

It can also be switched off when you first see it.
