Can anyone confirm if they did or did not do away with the auto update that couldn't be delayed or gotten around.

For those who are travelling and using limited or slow wifi services, an auto update could make for a very testy experience.

If you scroll down on this article, it will give you a way to stop automatic updates. Originally, Microsoft was going to make them mandatory but they came to their senses.

Go into the Control Panel and set the updates to where YOU choose to install them. That way, you can download and install them when you're near WIFI. I would NOT go long without installing updates. You also need to make sure you keep an updated Anti-Virus software. I use the freebies and they work fine. (Avast)

I have a "spare" Win 8 notebook I'm downloading Win 10 to. We've already received a notice from our major software provider (Exact JobBoss) to NOT upgrade to WIN 10 yet because they're not guaranteeing "compatibility". Oh boy...here we go!

Win 7 is the best system they've ever had. Less blue screens by far over the infamous XP. We use the "PRO" version on all software because of networking.

History... anybody remember WOLFENSTEIN?

I moved to linux about 10 years ago and will never return to windows on my computers. But I'm upgrading spare windows 7 netbook to w10 now to see what w10 is. Only 2 hours passed, but the update is at 51% already :-)

I was going to do the same, Jim, but about an hour ago my trusty ole Toshiba crashed so it looks like I'm gonna wait a while.

A keyboard set-up "Pro" has already posted that this change will allow you to exceed the Windows-10 maximum rating of 575 input strokes per minute to up to 935 SPM, but that is only valid in Canada where metric strokes are used.


(LOLOLOL in case you didn't guess!)

My laptop is less than a year old, so compatibility should not be an issue. I just have to find the time to do it.

I actually haven't even checked my laptop to confirm if is available for me there yet. Maybe tomorrow, though a busy day is ahead.
