  • wow -maybe that will be a boon for the slightly old laptop secondary market

  • New change in Update policy removing latest Intel and AMD CPUs from support on old OSes

    Up until now Windows 7and Windows 8 could be installed on systems with new chips and worked except you did not have official drivers.

    Now Microsoft want to force you to got o Windows 10 as it will check for new CPUs and fully disable Windows Update for such systems.

  • Next update bring ability to fully prevent installation of apps that you did not buy in Microsoft store

    Something tells me that we are not far from time as ability to install non Store apps will be paid option and very expensive.

  • LOL sounds like the basis of a class action suit here in USA. So happy I'm still Win 7.

  • Anniversary Update reduced updates rollback period to 10 days and broke most web cameras in same time.

    Microsoft perfectly knew about issue with web cameras as it is them who completely broke software pipeline for them. And they expect to have some type of fix in 1-6 months.

    Both changes came fully unannounced and as secret part of updates.

    Btw, Microsoft change with cameras pipeline is made to allow sharing of video stream among applications. In other words - it will finally allow malware and Windows itself to have access to original stream without being noticed (previously it caused access block to other software).

  • The producers of operating systems should be encouraged, or regulated, for example, to block downloads of copyright infringing material,

  • Well, update time passed, for now. Of course you can still upgrade for free if you tell them that you are disabled (and who are not?).

    More news - since version 1607 of Windows 10 if you did fresh install Microsoft start requiring Microsoft signature on all drivers. For example it means that if you are small firm or developer you must now pay for this and include this in costs and include waiting time also.

  • A forced update for Win7 users?

    They now removed close button, but left two "choices" :-)

    Two choices below are same, in fact, one just schedule update to be made later.

    Third choice - windows closing now also means "upgrade now". Yep.

  • When these guys were sittin' around the tent makin' all this up, why did they pick ten? Why ten? Why not nine, or eleven? I'll tell you why. Because ten sounds important. Ten sounds official. They knew if they tried eleven, people wouldn't take them seriously. People would say, "What're you kiddin' me? The Eleven Commandments? Get the fuck outta here!"

    But ten! Ten sounds important. Ten is the basis for the decimal system; it's a decade. It's a psychologically satisfying number: the top ten; the ten most wanted; the ten best-dressed. So deciding on Ten Commandments was clearly a marketing decision.

    Also fits Windows 10 perfectly

  • The Anniversary Update is also designed to make app purchasing and discovery easier for teachers. Schools can purchase apps and deploy them in bulk.

  • I disabled some weeks ago windows update (win 7 ultimate) on my pc. is this the best choice in this case?

  • New thing

    Update KB3035583 (Update installs Get Windows 10 app in Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 SP1) for many people after update just install Windows 10 without asking anything.

    Also check KB3044374 and KB3123862.

  • Ive cut 2 projects on win 10 w 980 ti 1 project on premiere and the other on media composer 8.5. Win 10 works perfectly so far. Bm intensity card.

  • Ive had 3 different unrelated machines now install the wrong integrated intel video driver leaving only a black screen on reboot. Driver updates should never be auto updated, and never installed with other updates at the same time

  • Its scary

    It is capitalism.

    Go to any high populated third world countries and it is much more scary.

    Microsoft also improves their "smart" filter fast by indicating anything that can come from not very legal source as presenting threat or just rejecting completely to download it.

  • I'm on the same boat, its like having ghosts in the house, programs uninstall by itself, plugins disappear, hacked software with revoked licenses, movies deleted by mystery....

    Its scary

  • Microsoft started to include Windows 10 tray update shit even in priority security updates by hiding this part.

  • Thanks Vitaliy, ... sorry to say: these bastards.

  • Start this week, Microsoft is re-categorizing Windows 10 as a "recommended update" in its Windows Update system. That means the Windows 10 upgrade process will download and start automatically on thousands of machines

    Watch out.

  • And for strategy VK?

    Well, this is strategic task, for tactical one - just propagate proper ideas and use small utilities that disable this shit.
