Windows 10 Is Doing What?

Imagine my surprise, when just yesterday the “critical download” to upgrade to Win 10 showed up and I made a point of marking it as hidden and telling Windows Update that I did NOT want to upgrade.

Someone (a tech support guy) told me today that they didn’t think this was really happening. It was just hype on the internet. Boy, have I got news for him!

This should be “interesting” – for sufficiently terrifying values of “interesting.” Especially since one of the key programs I use, QuickBooks, will only work with Win10 if you have the 2015 or 2016 version. I have the 2013 version.

Is it too late to pull the plug and install Ubuntu?

  1. I have heard some horror stories about the upgrade. I have resisted it!

    Microsoft in their infinite wisdom uses that gif/page for their updates. I haven’t updated the laptop yet and when I try to update win 7 critical functions, that’s the page they show you. I panicked the first time I saw that and shut down the update 3 times before it finished. Still with win 7. I upgraded the desktop to win 10. It has one very annoying bug – at times I can’t open the start bar! Quickbooks 2013, wow so new; I still have Microsoft money 2000!
