Re: When will this stop?

"So what happens at the end of the "free" update period? Will they still push it onto Win7/8 users only then present them with a notice saying "Please pay us $$$ to continue using your PC"?"

Frankly, if as much sh*te happens during the free period, you're right to expect ransomware-style stuff after !

Tell you what, since ransomware is anyway difficult to disguise into anything but crime, I 'm gonna suggest this cunning plan:

- security updates, only available as part as Windows as a Service

So, basically, you'd be paying for fear of being exposed to every exploit kit. Brilliant !

Anon, as I may have revealed some heavy stuff :-)
