IO think by the time we're forced to use the new OS all the kinks will be worked out completely, the books about it all updated. Right now theres no real way to learn windows ten and not get fed up with it. the flat look for me atl east, HAS to go, if they make it like they made Windows 7, then hey I'm all for it. Windows 7 I wanted when it was first launched, wimnsdows eight killed what made windows 7 WINDOWS; all the end candy, 3d buttons, fade effect, etc. 10 tried to bring back some stuff from seven. but what is missing is what made Seven WINDOWS, in 10 thereis the start menu suyre, but there's nothing else that makes it feel like WINDOWS to me, all the eyecandy is shot to heck in windows 8 If someone makes a program I'd have to download to make my windows 10 look like and act like windows 7, eyecandy and all; then fine I'll move to windows 10 when my windows 7 Laptop explodes like a nuclear warhead on doomsday

 

I used XP Pro 5 years AFTER legacy supported ended before getting Windows 7 Pro. and before that I used Windows 2000 Server Pro for 12 years before getting XP Pro. So I dont see any problems with using 7 or {dare I say it} 8 when their updates are ended

 

But that's just me

Because on this planet we have choices, have you not heard of Linux?

Also, I don't believe all of those silly spyware stories about Microsoft. In my opinion Apple and Google are worse.

 

But that's just me.

To answer your question more directly, some people are concerned, these people generally fall into the conspiracy theorists group. Our whole world is build on technology that can do this, even your television.

Need to give this a +1, a thumbs up and a 'hell-yeah'   :guitar:

 

I went 100% Linux (Mint) about half a year ago (thanks in large part to the Linux Forums here) and am loving it.

 

And, I concur:  Apple, Google have been acting pretty poorly in the past several years.

 

Choices...praise be, choices.

I do my share of b*tching & complaining here from time to time (ask Animal) but I try to always tip my cap to you Advisors, Moderators & Admins.

 

And I do so again in this moment.

 

Thank you for being out there & thank you for putting up with all of us & all of this.

Amen.  Wasting one's energy on doing anything besides rolling one's eyes and sighing is, well, wasting one's energy.
