Microsoft steps up Windows 10 nagging

We don't know the same people

I've talked to 32 people, as of two days ago, who have upgraded their systems from Windows 7 or 8.x to Windows 10. A couple had some minor issues, since resolved. One knew what I was talking about when I mentioned "telemetry" and none accepted an offer to block said telemetry. None of them knew what Linux is. These are your bog-standard, everyday users, a few of whom use computers at work--Windows again--and none of whom are IT professionals. The kind of people who, when you ask what operating system they are using, answer "Internet Explorer" or "Firefox" or whatever browser they prefer.

All the noise and debate concerning Windows 10 is apparently just passing them by...
