Is anyone worried about the forced updates? That's what worries me.

It is worth it to wait several months to see how it works, then upgrade.

I think it is great. Now that everything is always connected you need to update your software as fast as possible. Just look at the whole flash thing of last week. Security is a huge challenge these days. 10, maybe even 5 years ago you updated mostly because you want new features, now updates need to respond to real-life threats of unpatched code that is living on your PC. Before Microsoft needed to wait until patch tuesday (every month) to push updates and would push critical updates right away, but now they can change their update cycles completely to make sure collisions happen less and security patches are rolled out faster.

I'm glad they are finally doing it. This will go a long way to prevent the propagation of malware and other threats to the end user.
