Do the math. There are more than 700 million Internet users in China. Even going by your percentage, more than 70 million potential complaints is surely going to make a dent.

Microsoft's response so far to the webblog has been to resend the instructions to revert to W7. Pirated copy or not, they play along.

1.2 million out of 70 million - that is a tiny dent. As an aside, I do not know why MS would send the free W10 upgrade to Chinese servers. They know that the majority of the W7 licenses are bogus. Upgrading bogus licenses is allowed, but the license remains bogus. Is it just a matter of the numbers?

1.2 million who voiced their discontent, may have legitimate copies or not, but around 72 million potential customers to mess with, some who may go straight to court or the consumer protection agency is still messing with dozens of millions of legitimate costumers, no matter if they sue or not, and that's a big risk, if nothing else because bad PR in the order of more than 1.2 million complaints is a big dent.

Even if just a tiny fraction sue, say ten thousand people, that's a huge legal and PR problem. People should not be automatically upgraded to a different OS that has a different set of terms and conditions automatically, no matter what their Windows Update settings are or whether they leave their computer(s) turned on all day, unattended at night, or not. What Microsoft was doing was completely unacceptable and should raise red flags.

I am running debloated win10 on all machines.
No phoning home or data mining.

I am downloading Linux now. I had to buy new laptop and it came with Win10 and its honestly a pain in the ass. I am also going to buy a ebay win7 and maybe a torrent version. I'm running on like 100kbs a sec which we all know is super duper slow and I would only get like 10kbs a second on downloads. As soon as I downloaded the files to Block updates and telemetry I started to get 100kbs so I should have checked the packets but I honestly don't care I want this off my PC.

If they actually are turning the OS into an ad supported platform, then yes, they don't care how you got it but you're now a money generator for them.
Putting that spin on it, it actually kind of makes sense to go to such lengths to force every known copy of Windows onto Windows 10.
I still don't like the way they're doing things, but just maybe this abhorrent behavior will actually go away once the "free upgrade" period is over.

I accidentally fell for this on my media pc over the weekend. What a pain...

I really didn't want win10 on it.

Its not a big hassle... biggrin.gif Installing and using linux is just as simple as windows. The only difference is the layout and the design of the UI wink.gif . BTW i like carburettors. No MCU, lambda sensor, and other expensive BS thumb.gif .
