Okay, I am confused. I thought this was a patch. Is that wrong? Because if it is a patch, what you are saying makes no sense. If it just a new "Anniversary" release which people might ignore, then what you are saying is reasonable.

I was referring to the re-installation of Skype.

Nin, I don't have some great conspiracy theory. The release broke Classic Shell. Now perhaps that is because the programmers of Classic Shell had not followed Microsoft's application development rules correctly. But it doesn't change the fact the release cause it to stop working until patched.

People seem oblivious that it's a totally clean install of windows, to the point that c:\windows is renamed to windows.old. To expect every single thing to migrate flawlessly is ignorant, to put it mildly...
Nin, the re-installation of removed software is not a failure of software migration. I don't understand why you are fighting so hard to defend MS here.

Did the anniversary Win10 update break Start10 like it did Classic Shell?

Meanwhile, Win10 Anniversary Update attacks Classic Shell.
Wow, so completely shitty of them. And the Skype stuff is bad behavior too. I wonder if it would force me to create a Skype login, seeing as I don't have one.

My point was the price isn't worth "what you get". Subzero units look great. But they don't do anything a "normal" units can't. You are spending money solely for the purpose to impress whomever it is you are inviting over to you home. I guess maybe Ferrari wasn't a great example, although I personally think they have the same problem.

Their page is a bit short on details -- doesn't indicate all the things you are saying. I might be interested when I get to Win 10, until I get more info I suspect I'll stick with Classic Shell.

Did it just switch to tablet mode? It does that sometimes I've heard.

They're expensive, but nothing beats a Subzero or Viking
Why? I looked into Subzero before and as far as I could tell it was just an image thing, like owning a Ferrari...

Even the concept of the design on this transmission is bad. It is simply asking for bad things to happen. I'm not sure the company should be legally responsible, but it wouldn't bother me if it cost them a few million or even a few hundred million.

If any one against Win10, updates to it any time now in the future and pays $$$, you then were wrong at this point not upgrading for free.
You forgot to mention that water is wet. Since this is supposedly the last Win version, right? Just updates now. So, if they hold to that, then yes -- I will probably at some point upgrade to Win 10. But it will probably be in the form of a fresh install on a new PC. And the cost will be minimal in comparison to the cost of the PC. In the mean time, I avoid all that monitoring nonsense I dislike.

You are "free" to run as insecure of a computer as you choose to, and that's the problem MS has been attacking here.
Blah, blah, blah. I heard the same nonsense about Win XP which I stayed on well past MS's desires. As long as you aren't an idiot, and have up to date virus software, it wasn't and isn't a problem. Shockingly, I never had a issue on Win XP and I highly doubt I'll have one on Win 7.

Considering some of those customers are large corporate customers, I suspect they will expend a reasonable level of effort to keep Win 7 and Win 8 updated.

Barring the .5% of super-users that will get by regardless of updates... everyone else absolutely should have upgraded to windows 10 for free.
I wouldn't normally consider myself in the .5% of super users. But I have owned at least one PC continuously since 1997. The well documented issues with Win 10 give me great pause. Does this make me a tin foil hat loon? Perhaps. But seeing as I have a valid, reasonable, other choice -- I'm going to take it. I'll be hoping that before 2020, another good choice will present itself. If not... *shrug* I'll do what I have to do.

In truth, for most PC users there's no Windows 10 enhancement, new feature, or looming security threat that makes upgrading a must-do proposition.
You do not understand security at all.
So, there is a security issue resolved in Win 10 that can't be resolved in Win 7? What is it?
