Microsoft are trying to cram Winbloze 10 down our throats.

http://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/2442185/microsoft-confirms-future-processors-will-only-support-windows-10

I don't like what they're trying to do, here. There's suspicion that MS will give you Win 10 for free as a try it out, but then you got to buy the license to run it every year.

https://redmondmag.com/articles/2015/04/01/subscription-model.aspx

Plus it has an app store that keeps trying to sell you stuff while you're going through the Start menu looking for an application that you want to start up, and your searches in the Search Box goes to Bing, and it sends you advertisements based on what you were searching for.

http://www.infoworld.com/article/2834414/microsoft-windows/what-you-will-love-and-hate-about-windows-10.html

There's just no way I would put up with that. I can't have MS looking over my shoulder while I use my computer. It seems that Windows 7 will end up being the very last MS product I ever buy.

I already use Ubuntu for all kinds of other stuff. The only thing I ever used Windows for was for my PC games. I always built my own PC's for gaming.

Now that Intel and AMD will be making new CPU's and Chipsets that won't support Windows 7, I can see that I will also stop building new machines. I won't be a PC gamer anymore... I'll have to go to console gaming.....

Turn off anything relating to reports if you honestly don't want them to be using your information for a better experience.
I don't do anything illegal...well that illegal so i don't care if they get my info but i turned that stuff off anyhow.

You don't need to use the app store heck i never notice it is there at all and it using bing is hardly a big deal.

Seems like alot of fuss about nothing to be honest.

I don't use it for the fact Windows 10 steals bandwidth. Not to mention the privacy issues.

Windows 8 isn't even legal in china because it spies on people. That's how low Microsoft has gone.

Is anyone really shocked that a company is trying to force you to buy their latest product? It's what companies do.

Your fear of it going to a subscription based service isn't something I bother thinking about anymore. I have read many articles saying it will never happen and that they will be getting their money through other methods like, for example, your complaint about the app store. Even if they did try it all it would do is make people go elsewhere or downgrade back to 7 which is really quick and easy. They may make mistakes but I don't see them being dumb enough to push people away that hard.

As for the app store though not only do I not use it but it doesn't try to sell me anything whenever I open up the start menu. It is just a simple blank icon that says "Store" with its little logo. If I see anything in the start menu I don't like I simple right click it and unpin it. Simple and easy fix and it allows me to only have what I want on there.

Problem with the searches using Bing? You have plenty of options to even change that aspect of it located here: http://www.pcworld.com/article/2986172/windows/how-to-make-cortana-search-with-google-instead-of-bing-in-windows-10.html

It may be more of a hassle than it really should be but I really just think you are making way too big of a deal out of it all.

Yeah well. If you aren't going to fix the situation
Then there's no point in even bringing the topic up

It could be worse.

It could be Windows 8.

It could be Vista.

It could be Windows 98.

It could be Windows 95.

Stop your bickering. You're getting DX12 and a browser they promised to keep updated.

I updated to Windows 10 as part of the insider program and I've never regretted is.
I enjoy the operating system far more than Windows 7 or Windows 8.

Uhh you suck! After using Microsoft 10, yeah it's stupid how much data and WiFi it uses compared to Windows 7, but it's still good. Apple sucks! Yeah you heard me.

I deeply regret upgrading my windows 7 to windows 10, everything broke, i cant play my favorite games anymore.
My video card became obsolete, games that use opengl no longer work, minecraft no longer works, the only fix for this is getting a new computer as i cant upgrade the laptop
I had to fix my computer not turning off after it was off
its extremely hard to remove devices if something installs wrong...
computer uses more ram
i have to mess with the services.msc console every single time to get programs like hamachi to work and my external usb bluetooth, (manually disable them, switch the owner, re-enable them)...
it forces me to restart the computer and locks it if i delay the updates too long

fixing everything i use weekly gets old fast, probably for a media user that doesn't delve into the technical side of computers, win 10 is ok...

wait you prefer DDOS?

and yes Windows 10 is so unstable for many users I know and some got really deep issues.

Atleast I like 7 for being a stable and more or less trusted place to be right now.
