Post Oh the Irony. Kb 3035583
So I was browsing the web the other day at school and read about this update where it notifies you (win 7 & 8) that a free upgrade to 10 is coming and you should reserve your copy. Its invasive and it's installed as a recommended install. Me, thinking that I don't have automatic install of updates and unchecked the box for recommended install patches, i was fine. Well, I got home, turned on my PC and got this. :oops:

It installed on 5/16/15 and notified me yesterday. :naughty:

i am going to eventually pick up a HOME edition for $119. but not until they iron out all the bugs and driver compatibility stabilizes across the board. i think MS finally understood why people stopped buying windows. up until Windows 7, what average Joe could afford $300+ on a copy of OS. people who use windows are average joe who don't have the dough and therefore want to stay within budget. $300 for an OS just puts most budget concerned consumer out of range. Factoring in the cost of hardware, it is no wonder why some people jumped ship and went with the comparably cheaper Apple all-in-one solution. With their latest pricing for Win8/10. $120 it is more inline with the real world budget of consumers. naturally, they're hoping to drive up the adoption once again. and certainly explains the annoying pop up to get your attention.

Why would you wait and buy it? You can upgrade for free if you do it "now"
