@John Miles 1 Re: "Just bought a new PC and got it with Windows 10 ( on the basis that I'd be forced to update anyway at some point). It seems to run OK..."

Well, firstly it is highly unlikely that that new PC you got didn't come with Win10 Anniversary Edition, so you can expect it to update in the coming days/weeks to what is effectively a new OS carrying the win10 branding...

Which raises an important question. Given the number of PC's with a pre-anniversary edition of Win10 installed, there is a strong likelihood that many people will be returning machines because the auto update to Anniversary edition borked the machine. I can't see retailers and OEM's being happy to foot the bill for this, unless MS starts paying them...
