I have just found an article in a UK newspaper suggesting the download and installation of updates for Windows 10 will be compulsory for users of the "home" version of the new operating system! Users of the "home" version will no longer have the option whether and when to download such updates.
Is this true?
If it is true, presumably it also means users of the "home" version of Windows 10 won't be able to "roll back" their PCs to a previous date and time when their PCs were functioning normally if there is a bug in an update.
Updates fixing holes in Microsoft's software that hackers and other ne'er-do-wells can exploit are welcome.
Unfortunately, in all the time I have been using Microsofts various operating systems there have always been instances where one of the frequent operating system updates issued by Microsoft has rendered one or more application progams on my computer unusable and/or made my PC phenomenally unresponsive, until such time as Microsoft has fixed the problem (which in some instances can take days - weeks on some occasions).
Is Microsoft really going to deny users of the "home" version of Windows 10 the choice to decide whether and when an update to their operating system can be installed on a user's PC? That choice has always been available to "home" users of previous versions of Microsoft's operating systems.
Or is this some ploy to make users upgrade to the more expensive professional version of Windows 10, which apparently will still give users the option as to whether and when updates are installed?
Upgrading to Windows 10 is becoming less and less an attractive an option.
