Saw this with Vista and then 7 (aka Vista 2.0) came out and people jumped at 7 because it "wasn't Vista". Same thing will happen when Win11 or whatever they call it will come out. By then Win7 will be EOL and people having been backed into a corner will move to Win11.
As for MS removing features; you licensed the software so how can you honestly think you're entitled to control of it? It's MS's property and if you don't like it make your own or move to something that has better terms.
Err... aren't you a little late for that? The 29 July "free" offer deadline was last Friday, today is Sunday.
Of course you can now move the goalposts like you just did (and so can Microsoft...) and say something along the lines of "yeah right, hmpf... but you will move sooner or later, just you wait until the next promotion, they'll get ya!"
Whatever suits your view.
I'm still using Windows 7 and will take my time to move to Linux. I paid for my retail Windows 7 license, I intend to make use of it until I want to. Make no mistake, I will
