From Windows Insider Program: "We just wrapped up our annual developers conference, Build 2016 – where we introduced some great new Windows 10 features."

 

"Build 2016, it was stated that in the eight months since launch, Windows 10 is off to the fastest start in Windows history, with over 270 million active devices, outpacing Windows 7 in the same time frame by 145%."

Makes for interesting reading.

many have probably installed all updates "accidentally". ;)

Again for those interested I received this information from "how-to geek" this morning - via Windows insider preview program

Windows 10 is a phone without the phone part. I still think Win 7 is superior as an OS.

in what way?, just because it has an app store and Apps as well as applications? One is perfectly able to ignore those aspects and use it like any other Windows machine, that's what I do.

That's what I do too. With a few tweaking apps I got it pretty much running/looking the same as my old Win 7. I'm not saying Win 10 is 'bad', but the whole commercial focus was quite a bit unneeded (for me).

Maybe I'm misreading this, but it seemed like the article was only stating that some policies were being retired (a very normal action between OS versions); granted they're probably quite popular GP branches, but it didn't sound like it was the entire GP (perhaps I misread it though)

If you read the article I linked to Nergal you will see the things Win 10 Pro users are no longer able to do, eg.. Turn off Customer Experience, Windows Tips etc

 

Also have a read of the comments under the article to gauge the annoyance level of this decision..

I did read it, and described what I read, which you confirmed. As I said, while they may be popular policies, it by no means the removal is all of them.

But I paid for the ability to implement those polices when I bought the Pro version (Actually Win 8.1 Pro before upgrade last year)

 

Now Pro is just turning into Win 10 Home :(

 

Guess they want pro users to up buy to Enterprise (what a surprise)

Well, they gave it away for a while, very few people took it. 

Then they sneaked it in, then they pushed it in. 

That gave rise to at least 6 upgrade blocking softwares, also free. 

 

As of right now, last day of the freebie, about 20% of desktop users have adopted win 10. 

Probably just the number of busy folks who don't have time to watch every move their computer makes, plus a few early adopters. 

 

Now they are removing several important functionalities from the freebie they gave away. 

Those are important features they are removing. 

It's worth thinking about why they chose those particular ones. 

 

I'm just glad I imaged 8.1 before installing win 10. 

 

Question:  What is the likelihood that microsoft will somehow lock the win 10 upgrade in so that one can not restore an image?

That is a serious question, not rhetorical. 

At this point I wouldn't put anything past microsoft.

For my part and the ever reliable Macrium Reflect and multiple HD drives in both my Win 10 PC's I've kept my M/Reflect Win 7 & Win 8.1 backup's just in case I need to go back in time.

Well said, sir. 

 

I actually like win 10, it seems good for my family. 

Too snoopy to suit me, so I pointed that out. 

 

But you're right, Tas, Macrium gives one lot's of options.
