OK.. OK.. sounds like I am being an alarmist..
It started several weeks ago when Stargazer (my Windows 7 laptop pc) had some (Windows) updates and it asked me if I wanted to get a FREE upgrade to Windows 10 when it is released. Of course I registered for it (can you really refuse??)? Now I have a “NAG” sitting on my system reminding me.. “.. it’s coming ..” (so is winter).
I was aware Microsquish was going to do this because of general info flying around the net for some time. It looked “good” to me.. a FREE upgrade – yea right… There had to be a catch somewhere and now (thanks to Gordon Kelley – contributor to Forbes) we ALL know just what it is.. and it’s really nasty “rat hole”.
Once you upgrade they will have their hooks in solid.. and the “free” will turn into a cash stream for them.. from your pocket to theirs.
