Two updates in two days is unbelievable, but I just couldn’t wait…and I’m still pi**ed about it; but let me explain.
First of all, this is not a review of Windows 10—since the OS is being installed as I type—mostly because I had no intention of putting it on my laptop; unfortunately, Microsoft saw it differently and chose in my place.
Tonight I turned on my laptop in order to finally work for some of my sites—I have like 3 or 4 hanging for which I have to make the buttons, layouts, pages, etc.—but first I checked Windows Update for the usual monthly updates released by Microsoft; there were 14 updates to install and I gave the ok for the installation, as I normally do….but here comes the surprise, and it was not a good one.
When I tried to install the updates, Windows went and started installing Windows 10 on its own—I hadn’t for sure selected it….WTF!?!?
Yo, Gates? FYI, what you did is a very dirty a**hole-ish trick; free update is not the same as “forced” update, thank you very much. I didn’t want Windows 10, or I would have signed up for the free update immediately; no wonder Microsoft let the Windows 10 upgrade free until next year (which would have caused a huge loss of profit), they had probably planned to do something like this from the beginning.
Jeez, I’ve never wanted a Mac so much as in this moment.
Anyway. I’m currently typing from the iPad, as the laptop is busy on the upgrade and that’s gonna probably take something like other 40 minutes maybe even an hour….oh, joy.
Well, I guess I have no choice left; see you from my Windows 10 laptop, then.
Take care, guys, and have a nice week and week-end.
