Re: Is the Windows 10 forcefd upgrade even legal?

@zen1 - I talked to a lawyer friend about that issue and other than a class action lawsuit or governmental investigation proceeding is likely not to result in action but a lot of money spent on fees. I think the best scenario to royally shaft Slurp is for several EU countries to announce they are ditching Slurp and require the direct vendors and company contacts to use ODF files instead of MSO formats. LibreOffice is cross platform and free and there are others.
