Will you upgrade to Windows10? Why? submitted by dalek_caan to AskVoat

bicubic 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago

Ok so there's a very good motivation for forced updates - to get some handle on the rampant botnets that plague Windows due to missed security updates. Forced updates are going to be a great thing on the whole.

At the same time, I definitely share your concerns about forced updates being able to load unwanted software etc. onto your computer. Updates of any kind require you to trust the source, and in the "post Snowden" world, it's very hard to trust any US-based software vendor.
