A CALIFORNIA woman has set a precedent after a court ruled that she was entitled to damages over the installation of Windows 10 on her machine.
Teri Goldstein, a travel agent, testified that the new operating system had auto-downloaded, started to install, failed, and left her Windows 7 computer running painfully slowly and often unusable for days.
"I had never heard of Windows 10," Goldstein told reporters. "Nobody ever asked me if I wanted to update."
Microsoft actually paid up to avoid further litigation. I think this will just open the floodgates. Happy time for the lawyers.
