We have upgraded our computers and are happy with Widows 10.

It is a good time to clean up the old computers.

I think that all who want to upgrade have done so, the big question is, will MS stop harrassing their customers to upgrade after July 29th?

I have 7 professional and i'm sick of the pop up reminders about windows 10. If i decide to install 10, i'll do it when i'm ready, and i don't care if i have to pay for it when I do it.

My computer did it automatically when I wasn't paying attention. I don't appreciate windows doing this. If I wanted to upgrade I would. I can make my own decisions. I'm a capable adult. 

Now with that being said, I'm not unhappy with the upgrade.

No plans on upgrading.  Actually ran "Never 10" from GRC.com to prevent 10 from auto updating and to delete the 1+gigs of files downloaded for the update.

 

Too many things wrong with 10's security for my taste.
