[WCCF] New Low for Microsoft: Removes the ‘X’ Button from Windows 10 Upgrade Dialog - Page 12

post #111 of 204
I had an MR2 first gen. I PAID to upgrade to a 2nd gen turbo. they made a 3rd gen, but i didnt want it. thats my choice. it is against the law fir toyota to force me to upgrade, free or not.

If i wanted to upgrade to windows 10 from xp, they would charge me to upgrade or more like get rid of and replace.

I bought my licens for 7. I upgraded freely to 10. But... to be forced? isn't there a class action lawsuit somewhere in here to be brewed? I bought a certain product. not xp, not vista or 8..... i bought 7. last i checked, 10 isn't 7. it's a whole new product. One i certainly wouldn't want if it weren't for DirectX 12. I smell something freedomishly wrong here.

It's free (for you to give them your entire life) so why would they come out with a statement?

Jokes on them, I still have my retail copy of Windows 7 Professional. I can continue to go back to 7 forever if I so choose.

I think Microsoft removing the X violates their own TRC?

At least Windows gives you the option to pick a time.. And if one is so concerned with not updating, simply pick a day 10 years from now!.
Perhaps I'm mistaken, but I usually delay my updates and have yet to be forced to update. It's just persistent in asking every day.

Pretty annoying. I liked Windows 7 and decided to stay with it for a while, but after a few months (or longer) I made the switch to Windows 10 and am very happy except for a few annoying things. Microsoft really has to get their act together.

This was not my experience, so I downgraded again. The downgrade worked perfectly, which was quite surprising.

Got this nonsense on my laptop after doing some updates not too long ago. Immediately shut down and recovered from a backup, haven't seen it since.

I don't feel like going through the trouble of "infecting" myself with this nagware popup again but I'm curious to know, with the "X" gone, are you able to at least Alt+F4 out of it?
