[Ars/TV] Windows 10 will be automatically downloaded to Windows 7 and Windows 8 machines next year - Page 14

post #131 of 135
I just got a load of people knowing I work on pc's. Well, they all are asking how to go back to windows7 as 10 was forced on them and they absolutely HATE it.

This is fracken nuts and such bs to put this on ppl that barely can turn the pc on let alone go back to win7.

I got a few words for ms but is disallowed here at ocn, well can we say tree+rope?

Regarding upgrading retail, what happens to the the old license? That's the part no one ever addresses.

Most people are concerned with whether or not the upgrade 10 license will have the same transfer rights as the retail 7 license it upgraded, but I'm not so concerned about that. What i want to know for 100% certain is whether the retail 7 license will be disabled or altered in any way. Before I upgrade any of my retail 7 machines, I want to be sure that I will be able to reinstall 7 and activate the license at any time in the future, and that the 7 license will still have it's transfer rights.

No, to be clear I don't intend to use the 7 license and the 10 upgrade on two different machines at the same time, but such a hypothetical situation is the source of my confusion; How would MS guard against this sort of exploitation of the free upgrade, if they didn't actively disable or cripple the original 7 license somehow?

Does anyone have practical experience with upgrading a RETAIL 7 license to 10, and then reinstalling 7 after at least 30 days, and preferably then transferring the 7 license to a different machine?

The best thing about all this enforcement of Windows 10 upon everybody is that if you have a valid Windows 7 or Windows 8 Enterprise Edition running on your hardware they (Redmond) will leave you alone and only provide the required updates for your Enterprise systems, just no Windows 10 garbage at all applaud.gif

Now I know what to install on my remaining PC's...... .

Well, actually the Enterprise of 10 gives full control over settings. I just wish they give a full clear writing on how the upgrades are treated on computers. Because by what it sounds the upgrades are more similar to a OEM. No way I am upgrading my full retail version to a OEM since that not what I paid for in the first place.

Not really because THEY (Redmond) can change the settings in the future at any time. NO basically I don't want to even deal with Windows 10 because it's a 100% leaky sieve, meaning it doesn't stop at continuously giving out every form of detail to anyone whether they be "Friendly" or extremely malicious.

Hence Windows 10 will be attacked far easily by anyone out there connected to the government or other corporate structures. Never before has an Operating System been so transparent to anyone wanting to know who or what you are.

It's like we're living in the time of the early 80's when dial up was the most innocent connection to the outside world and security didn't exist for the end user and we have Redmond now saying to us that their current, constantly "Betafied" OS version, is supremely safe to use, which thus far has proven them completely wrong on every count. People paid to use Windows 7 or Windows 8 for a reason because no one wants to pay to use Windows 10 (FACT).

Hence Redmond is so desperate to push this foul piece of software onto everyone out there, except to business because we have the strength to really punish them in a court of Law no matter where it's held.
