Seriously? Is it just because MS are cunts or something?

When I`m in the middle of doing something on my laptop I don`t want it to decide by itself that it`s going to shut down and update by itself. Not even a quick update either, it took fucking hours! And then even when it was done it took another 5 or so minutes just explaining that it had updated and where to find details on the update, and I`m just like `I don`t fucking care about your stupid update, just let me get back to what I was doing before you rudely interrupted me!`.

Oh and technically I didn`t `choose` to have W10 either. If W7 laptops were still sold I would have gladly bought one of those instead, even if it had cost more. But when W10 is literally the only thing you can buy... ugh

Because they can. And you, Ka-pi, shouldn't complain about this because you have spoken in favor of monopolies before.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Have you never seen a hypocrite before or something?

Because they gave it to you for free, but now they possess your soul.



Forcing you to update by locking out content is fine with me, but straight updating you in the middle of an activity is to pushy. I think they have the right to force people to the newest update to continue to use their product, but at no time should you ever be booted out of an activity, unless their was fair warning, and a reminder within 30min of it happening.

I am a believer in having all devices conected to the network being on the latest update though.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

Just get a windows 7 disc and install it on your laptop! Though I prefer Windows 10.

Haha, never change, man, never change!

OT: Even after the free offer ended in July, the GWX program still starts every time I boot my PC. MS and their update system is horrendously out of date, which is kinda hilarious when you think about it. But, at least it's not as bad smartphones, nagging about updates up to several times every week, and you can't even uninstall all the useless crap that came on the phone to begin with, only deactivate. Oh, and the updates keep filling up your (severely limited) storage, causing the phone to nag about that as well, great!



End of 2016 hardware sales:

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.

You can set active hours, in which Windows 10 won't automatically update, in your settings. Or, when there is an update, you can choose a moment when to install it, instead of Windows 10 choosing its own moment.

You're still forced to update, but at east it won't update while you're in the middle of something.

Every time I receive an update I can choose to postpone it to install later. It only installs automatically if you leave your PC turned on and not reacting on this notification for a while. Also, if I remember correctly Pro version allows to choose when to install updates
