No escape: Microsoft injects 'Get Windows 10' nagware into biz PCs

But GWX downloads without asking using your bandwidth, gives you a 'yes' or 'yes' option which traps users who don't see the close window icon, has a countdown timer which you can't stop, and sometimes installs Windows 10 anyway on a small selection of computers, and now defeats attempts to stop it by registry key instead of group policy. It is malware and no user should not be subjected to it whether home, business, or enterprise.

MS have decided to force update those customers who can't do anything legally and it appears that as regulatory bodies are slow and stupid when it comes to IT there is a good chance they'll get away with it. I hope one day something will be done but I'm not expecting much.

Just because MS pick who to bully it does not mean it is right.
