I guess I don't have to worry about this since I already updated to Win 10 a while ago.

Well its certainly less quirky than 8/8.1, don't see people don't want to upgrade to a much better experience.

I paid for my 8.1 license, and I will keep using said license until it is no longer supported.

Glad I disabled automatic updates.

Odd question, but, When has Microsoft not gotten a lot of negative feedback when launching a new OS? Most people now are claiming the Win 7 was way better and they are entitled to their opinions, however wasn't there enough negative feedback that a lot of users stuck on XP and how about win 98 to 2000 or 2000 to xp (me is excluded cause date driver support)

You also have to think about how bad of an image that MS has due to vista, and win 8 and 8.1.. 8 and 8.1 where really the MS killers and there is a lot of hesitation because of that. the General populous are not raising the concerns that I am reading here. they are basing it off of what they have seen and experienced with past OS models..

All this shows what I am saying. in addition an entire crowd doing so in sociology is considered mob mentality, you get a handful of people and they can control a crowd. And lets not forget how media manipulates response. Just like how media controls elections and the backers. ie fox news for republicans and MSNBC for democrats.

IMO this was staged to create ratings.. cause well.. thats what the business is for.. and what better way to get more ratings by exploiting the potential hate.. Especially in America we live for hate and the messed up. If it was portrayed as being a good product, in the terms of the media, it would be just another bland segment.

You can say otherwise however just look at what the reaction that was manipulated caused.. Talk about the show.. aka their product is now advertised due to the controversy. I just can't with media and talk shows like that aim for this situation.. so im just writing it off as media will manipulate.... and thats just what they did.

This. Also as long as Microsoft doesn't forcibly revoke my Win 7 license after it goes EoL, I could probably live with no support. I mean I normally only update Windows every quarter anyway.

Honestly, i was very apprehensive about upgrading to W10 with all the hooplah and fear mongering about it... but i made the leap when installing my new 850 EVO ssd, and so far so good. It feels very snappy, Cortana is fun, the layout isnt confusing really, and the security complaints most people have are actually options you CHOOSE during install. Half of them you can disable and you'll only lose Cortana and a few MS apps, no biggie.

The only major issue I ran into was consistent, random BSOD. Turns out, simple fix, turn off RAPID mode on the ssd... no more ssd.

The only other issue I have is Dota 2 randomly crashing to desktop for no apparent reason. Theres no message or notification, its just gone. Still looking into this one, but everything else feels great. I daresay, given time and tinkering, i may like it more than Win7.

I was just thinking, what is the aftermath of this process?

It will be interesting to see. If you say "No" - and we still haven't seen how that "No" is presented, what happens next? GWX uninstalls itself and never bothers you again? Or will Microsoft keep using 3GB+ in your storage with the Windows 10 files, and keep the GWX nagware icon on the taskbar and harassing you every week to reconsider the "No"? How did Microsoft plan to play this game?

It's just because in a way, PR wise, this is their last move. People had the chance to reserve it, the GWX nagware was automatically installed and reminded them multiple times already over the months and thus the opportunity to say "Yes" was there, IE also tells people about it, not to mention that you also have the Windows Media Creation tool freely available that lets you download Windows 10 and create a bootable USB pen or an .ISO to record to a DVD. Usually when something is "free" people flock to it, they go the extra mile to get to it and know more about it. Unless, of course, something is fishy. Considering that people have had so many opportunities to pick it up and haven't, what will Microsoft do next if they say "No"?

Not really, the negative feedback you are recalling was towards Windows Vista and a lot of people stuck to XP. When 7 came out it wasn't so much a question of not liking it, but rather people that either didn't want to upgrade, couldn't (incompatible hardware or old systems where it would feel sluggish) or even pirated versions of XP mostly in Asian countries that add up to a lot of pirated licenses being online.

Windows 98 to 2000 wasn't even a reality as 2000 was marketed as a workstation OS. "Windows Me was the consumer, Windows 9x based version, and that one was quite problematic but had a shelf life of around a year before Windows XP launched and thus the negative image stuck despite Microsoft having fixed many of the problems later. You also get people claiming Windows Vista wasn't that bad... after SP1 (a year later) or SP2 (two and a half years later). Windows Me never got that chance, so you see, there is always some subjectivity around these stories because people selectively ignore some historical data that helps frame what happened properly. The fact that Windows Vista after one / two and a half years was decent doesn't erase the hours of troubleshooting, BSODs, incompatibility and lack of drivers people encountered during the first / two and a half years. And the bloat, HDD trashing, UAC aggressiveness was never fully fixed until 7.

2000 to XP also wasn't a thing because there was really no push for people on 2000 to upgrade to XP, the intended markets were different and people on 2000 usually knew what they wanted it for and what their options were.

Windows 98 and 98 SE to XP took a long time and Microsoft had to extend the support period for them. It was also a major platform change from a 9x based OS to an NT based one and usually that takes time. Windows XP presented some major benefits because of the NT kernel but it also presented a lot of backwards compatibility problems. Having all the software and drivers available took time and then with the advent of broadband it became apparent that Windows XP had been released unprepared for that reality and thus SP2 was born.


There are different reasons why some transitions were good and some bad. Different times, different needs, different pace of tech, etc.


As to the TV show, Microsoft really doesn't need the bad publicity, reverse psychology doesn't work like that in this case. Due to Microsoft's aggressive stance people on Windows 7 and 8 / 8.1 already know about it from GWX nagware and then they can search online for it, read about it, watch videos, etc. This isn't an obscure product that needs all the publicity - good or bad - it can get.

tpj2007: You probably know this, but there's a DIY guide on how to cripple GWX from its core and ensure it never comes back again. After my parents battled to get GWX off their laptop with no success (damn thing kept coming back over and over again), I followed the instructions in that guide, and GWX has been a complete non-issue since. Best part is because you still have KB3035583 installed, Windows Update never bothers you again about this "recommended update".

Edit: Only thing I'd add is the registry contained no less than 15 GWX related entries. Yes FIFTEEN. Not "around six" as described in that guide. Needless to say I nuked all of them.
