I tried Win10 on my tablet and made everything worse, compared with Win 8.1
Looked at in my PC, and just felt not right. Some of my USB adapters do not like Win10.

I will stay with Win7 for a while. MS cant force me to install, when I disable windows update service.

Interesting, I have recommended updates unchecked for a while now and just today Windows Security Center wanted me to reconfirm my update settings. Guess there must be some Microsoft Employee bonuses attached to Windows 10 install numbers or something.

Edit: OK this is getting a bit out of hand, the Security Center warning won't go away. Keeps prompting me to "Install Updates Automatically", i.e. include Recommended updates and thus install Windows 10.

Would love to hear from the Windows 10 defense squad how this is acceptable OS behavior.

i guess their team would be busy answering calls from unhappy users wanting to roll back to a previous version of windows and not that price of crap that is being shoved down their throats

im already at this point, no more windows update from the disc.

just keep antivirus aka windows defender updated and use an updated and secure browser aka something that isnt edge or IE

primary source of vulnerability comes from the browser and downloading some "crap" or infected by a USB drive

funny thing is MS is most likely going to push a detector and flag non 10 OS as incompatible and wont let you run a game that is otherwise runnable. there is already a few titles that are windows 10 exclusive (if PC version)

screw backwards compatibility mode, what we need is forward compatibility mode without needing an OS change
