Re: the craziest thing about it is
A few weeks ago a friend had a W8.x pop-up that appeared to offer the "obvious" choice of "install W10 now" - but also a smaller font option of (she thought) "never install W10".
She had clicked on the "never" option - and then rang me to say I was so wrong about Microsoft not offering that option.
She added that if W10 is installed after that then she would go and buy a Mac.
So far she hasn't reported W10 being installed - so I'm left scratching my head over that.
