Okay skimmmed about 5 articles...this is probably the closest reasoning, i.e, they will be transitioning to a F2P, or also known as P2Win model = p


"But don't think Microsoft is getting touchy-feely. The software maker's chief operating office recently spoke about moving from one-time licensing fees to an "annuity conversion," meaning that the company may still be trying to figure out how to loop people, or at least corporations, into paying an annual fee."

So do you or don't you think they are collecting wrongful amounts personal information about people? You deleted your link, so now I am double confused what you are talking about.

The windows 10 test version was accused of that. Honestly I haven't been keeping up with what MS is up too.

But I don't like them : )

I tried. I failed.
Apparently my Macs are too complicated for Windows to successfully upgrade from 8.1. I can understand it freaking out on the Mac Pro (Windows boots from an external thunderbolt drive), but I thought my Macbook Pro would be fine (though in retrospect, I think it's a clone of the Mac Pro's bootcamp drive).

Oh well.

Have they done that same wonderful thing with 10 that they did with 7? That is have it not support any of your software so you have to buy it all again?

My husband upgraded to 10 on his win7 laptop. No problems, bit of a learning curve on new features, very smooth transition, all software he has still working fine, his desktop bg image stayed the same, and I haven't suddenly seen his porn collection.

TBH I don't think he has one, he hates dling stuff.

Oh lol yeah, I read that it scans through your My Pictures folder and does an auto slide show - causing a few frank family exchanges. Gawd I hate automatic stuff - as per the earlier car window discussion.

Eta: nevertheless that's good to know they've actually attempted some kind of backwards compatibility this time. Was frankly amazed they got away with that shit at version 7.

No. You have to go to 7 at least. And probably upgrade your computer cause after xp, win becomes a processor intensive program. I could run XP with 17 background processes. No way can you trim win7 down that low.

I know it sucks. I loved xp.

I got a solid state drive for the speed and all but back then they were only 125 Gb. You could get a 250 Gb but wildly expensive. Anyway, Win 7 took over half the drive volume just for itself. Couldn't believe it - brand new machine and half full just with the OS!

My friends have a walk-in-closet that can't be entered without first removing the single bed mattress set. Hope their fire extinguisher isn't in there.

I have been using 10 for some time now, with no important issues.

People did warn me that ms would have too much of my data, but they traded it with a delicious free os, so I don't care too much if they watch me rub one out through my camera now and then.

I have a neighbour who has been running specialty programs for years, and he was delighted with it. Says that 10 is more compatible with his outdated shit than 7 was.

Sure, ms is hate-able, but on the other hand, look how they merged the metro panel in with the other

I've just taken the plunge, upgrading from 7. It took about 2 hours for me to download and install, but hey, I made it back here so so-far-so-good.

I don't trust 'em

What's in it for them? Why are they giving us all a free OS? One that actually seems like it might be half-sensibly designed? You guys know there's no happy ending to this. This is MS we're talking about here - not your good fairy.

Going to take a wild punt on what Win10 is all about - I'm drunk and just made it up - and it’s based on the following postulates:
  • Corporations exist to make profit.
  • The larger the Corporation the more all-consuming the profit making drive is.
  • The software industry is making significant moves towards a new business model where no one buys and owns software but it is rented allowing a continuous revenue stream.
  • Win10 is designed to maximise the potential for this and take a % of the resulting profit boom.
  • Win10 has a significant component for the detection and disabling of pirate software.
