Windows 10 market share stalls after free upgrade offer ends


Final new Win7 PCs

Last month I bought two final ThinkPads, being careful to stipulate the Windows 7 downgrade. I just got in under the wire, since Windows 7 is now no longer an option.

I had to clear out KB3035583 and all the GWX paraphernalia. I set Windows Update to "never check".

The new ThinkPads will be on an air-gapped LAN. An independent Linux Mint ThinkPad is the sole Internet-facing machine.
