Those of us who haven't "upgraded"

Meanwhile, the Windows 10 Update Badgerer has upgraded itself from "lying dormant in the system tray" to "popping up at me several times a day".

I never understood why I was supposed to "reserve my copy of Windows 10". Are they in short supply? Need another printing? And why is there no option, on this system tray doohickey, to "remind me to think about it in six months"? Because that would, just possibly, be a useful function.

In the meantime, they can pry Windows 8.1 from my cold dead hands. Yes, that's right: I actually like 8.1, and until 10 starts getting unanimously rave reviews, I'm not moving.
