Microsoft is changing how it's asking customers to upgrade to Windows 10
Microsoft's free Windows 10 upgrade offer comes to an end in July and the company is looking to change the way it's asking customers if they wish to take advantage of the free offer or not. Microsoft has been rather aggressive in its marketing on older Windows installations, with some people even being upgraded to Windows 10 without wanting to altogether. That's set to change with this upcoming prompt refresh.
Terry Myerson released a statement on the matter to The Verge:
The company will now offer three distinct, clear options to customers (as shown above). You can either upgrade now, schedule a time that suits you, or decline the free upgrade offer. Hopefully this should cool off some of the heat that has been directed at Microsoft over the issue including a woman who successfully sued the company. Those on Windows 7 and 8 have just a month to upgrade to Windows 10 for free. After the promotion ends, you'll need to fork out to update your PC.

I know of one company with highly regarded techs that advises against the win10 upgrade. They have no issues with the clean install of win 10. So yeah ill go with my own choice and also their industry experience. You can suck up the MS bs and continue being mindless.
Oh and how are they FORCING it on you, gun to the head, waterboarding? What a tool!!!
And other than that, Windows 10 runs flawlessly on every device I installed it on.
By the way I did the upgrade last, and I have 2 BOSD in 24h and I wanted to go back to Windows 8.1 my PC end up in a mess and I have to reinstall 8.1 altogether.
I have a friend who have the PC as me and didn't have the problem.
Yeah you have that sometimes the Windows 10 can completely mess your computer up.
My PC is stable with Windows 8.1, why do I have to retry it and possibly end up with many problems?
For me, windows 10 makes work easier. Maybe you use your computer for different purposes and for that you like 8.1
It's just that you are not used to 8.1, it's the same for me whenever I have to work on Windows it seems weird but I will not call it disastrous
Maybe for next 3-4 years...
