Computerworld posted this article on the petition, yesterday. I thought the petition was still open, but didn't sign.  Maybe it is still open, but I didn't check.

 

Personally, I had no problems with Win10 installs or updates starting with build 10162 and activation at 10240, but I stopped using Win10 in early August (and told MSFT that in its 'Feedback') upon reading aka.ms/msa ,  due to its Paragraphs 2, 3, 7. For no matter what they do with it, the thing is lawsuit heaven for lawyers. 

 

But for others who have no third-party data to curate, maybe Win10 has its advantages.  But for sure one big problem many have, is the forced updates.

 

So if the petition is still open, y'all might want to sign.

 

Dang, I thought I was posting in Windows 10 Discussion forum.  If any mod wants to move this thread, thank you.  I can't delete the topic here now and move it myself.

Why is it customers think they know what's best for them?  Microsoft has been making operating systems a long time and they know what's best for you, and how and when it should be installed.

Interesting, and again, good to see many people concerned.

I also found this link therein noteworthy ..

 

http://www.computerworld.com/article/2993851/windows-pcs/microsoft-antagonizes-users-with-intrusive-new-windows-10-upgrade-tactics.html

 

and excerp from there ..

 

Suddenly, Windows 10 gains ground It may be a coincidence, but that timeline roughly corresponded to a significant uptick in Windows 10's usage share. Prior to Sept. 21, the OS's usage share growth had been in decline, with week-over-week increases falling slowly but steadily, probably because the pool of early adopters eager to get their hands on Windows 10 had been exhausted.

But beginning Sept. 21, Windows 10's week-over-week usage share growth experienced a noticeable jump, with the gains peaking on Sept. 26, then falling off over the next seven days. When the OS's usage share increases were graphed, they created a visible "wave" that first rose, then fell.

 

Speaks for itself, doesn't it ?

 

In other industries, such cooking of the books would be called fraud, and cause a trading suspension.

Go back in time a little.....just a matter of weeks...maybe a month or so.....and I was told in no uncertain fashion that   "We get it, that you think Microsoft is a kitten eviscerating second coming of satan."

With all due respect to the kittens.....I was right.....again.

Microsoft says take your cumulative Windows updates, they're good for you

Like I said above.

@Nick: and look at the reward.  Comments in that Register article are very perceptive.
