Microsoft steps up Windows 10 nagging

Re: I'm waiting until it goes to 11.

Mt main laptop started dying regularly a week or so ago and in the end I ordered a replacement (why do ALL laptops these days have shit displays) it came with W7 installed and a pile of re-install disks including 8.1. So I thought I'd bite the bullet and try the dreaded 8.1. Well after a spate of BSoD (it's a pretty new shade of blue and has a sad face on it) every time I go near the screen for adding devices. I decided I needed to get some work done, so I'd upgrade back to W7. BUGGER I didn't check carefully enough and HPinc didn't include a damn W7 re-install disk, only 8.1 ones.

So sod going to 10, I'm desperate to upgrade to 7.

I'd love to be able to do a real upgrade and switch to Mint but I need to run bits of SW that only work on Windows, so I have no option. My indoors laptop went to Mint a month or so ago and seems to be doing fine. Certainly more usable and infinitely more stable than W8.1.

As for waiting for it to go W11, well 8 is worse than 7, by all accounts 10 is worse than 8, spot the trend yet?, so sod going to 11.
