Must Read: How to Stop Windows 7 or 8 from Downloading Windows 10 Automatically
Microsoft is Worried For us. Really?
"We do worry when people are running an operating system that's 10 years old that the next printer they buy isn't going to work well, or they buy a new game, they buy Fallout 4, a very popular game, and it doesn't work on a bunch of older machines.
And so, as we are pushing our ISV [Independent Software Vendor] and hardware partners to build great new stuff that takes advantage of Windows 10 that obviously makes the old stuff really bad and not to mention viruses and security problems."
Oh! Come On Microsoft, We Know...
"We think every machine that is capable of running Windows 10 we should be doing everything we possibly can to get people to move to Windows 10…We are going to try to find that right balance, but we just know there're many people out there who constantly kick the can down the street without a little bit more of a, frankly, push.
And so, there's no doubt with a base as big as ours, it is hard to move anyone to a new model without angering some people. We don't want to anger anybody, but we do feel a responsibility to get people to a much better place, and Windows 10 is a much better place than Windows 7. We will always give you a way out, but we're trying to find the right balance."
