    Isn't 10 the last OS though? What after these 10 years? Are they going to come up with an OS with a different branding than Windows? This raises more questions to be honest lol.

    That is good to know! If they want us to upgrade then that is the right thing to do for their customer. I am not sure where I am with this Window 10 upgrading, since my laptop seems to just slowly dying. I have to take it in, but I have no funding right now.

    Before installing windows, I would recommend reading about it first, specially the parts where microsoft will be able to get information from your computer because your are using this OS. Examples of data they will be collecting include your name, email address, preferences and interests; browsing, search and file history; phone call and SMS data; device configuration and sensor data; and application usage.
    Microsoft can view your existing files and keylog everything you type when you create new ones. Use Windows 10 and you are agreeing to give access to all your data to the company.

    Yes this is an operating system which can listen to everything you say, read everything you own and track everything you write and click.

    It's nice to know that people who weren't running 7 onwards know that if they upgrade to 10 then they get a product with a very long lifespan. They're want everybody on the latest OS so it makes sense that they would make it long term.

    @RageGamingZone I had heard about this before and I thought it was so darn shady to be honest. It sounds truly shady if you put it that way, I had heard about keylogger before and it seemed so unnecessary. Sadly a lot people I know have already upgraded to Windows 10. Luckily I haven't, and I don't think I will until I see myself forced to make the switch... most likely once this laptop kicks the bucket after 5 or 6 years.
