Out of the Blue

Well Microsoft's free Windows 10 upgrade offer ended yesterday. I wonder how well their strong-arm tactics worked in improving penetration of the new OS? They missed their chance with me, because I have no interest in updating my Windows 7 PC, though they totally could have gotten my on my laptop if they had extended the offer to older versions. This relic is still running Windows Vista, of all things, and if it is capable of running Win10, that would probably be an improvement. What it would definitely improve is that machine's ability to update itself. I don't use it that often (obviously, or I wouldn't be putting up with Vista), and when I fired it up recently it took about a full day to process and install all the Windows updates it needed. This has apparently become a widespread problem with Vista over the course of time, with some users expressing suspicions that this is another of Microsoft's ways of forcing upgrades. I hope that's not the case, as that might be a harbinger of what could eventually happen to Windows 7.

I didn't upgrade, I have no need for it at this time. As long as new games aren't using that new DirectX soley, then I'm fine.
