I haven't tried it out and I'm in no hurry to upgrade to it. I heard there are some issues with it especially regarding privacy.

Having lived(?) through many OS upgrades I am reluctant to do it agin. There are glowing reviews but people who have upgraded with great ease and then the failure horror stories where the end user is unable to recover after a failure and loses everything on the PC and starts over. My experiences upgrading starting with DOS V 1.5 through XP have been more on the negative side. (I still have DOS5 and XP in factory sealed packages :)) With XP, I had several great successes and a couple of epic failures. Today's OSs have requirements rarely seen with PCs that are older than a year and you don't want to go with the minimum requirements.
IMO: It's much easier andless time consuming in the long run to acquire a new PC with the wanted OS.

I was actually thinking of upgrading to it before it tried to force itself to my home PC. Also, I heard somewhere that enterprises will have to way a monthly subscription for Windows 10. Is this true?

Gmail not used here. We do, incidentally, use a bespoke code-book for commercial messages, and understand full well that that's not a robust security solution.

Nature abhors straight lines, and is not the artifice of a cosmic draftsman.

Win10 sucks rocks. The new "features" are not useful for me, I hate the cloud and store nothing on it, it's time wasting to re-set many control panel settings, time wasting to deal with new latency and stickiness and long boot times, there's far too much spying, it caused instant death to my previously fully functional HDMI output so I can't even watch the Tay S vs Kat P cat-wrestle I want to manage - I haven't been able to restore this function on any of my Win10 machines - I don't want to buy a new computer and submit to churned obscolescence on the part of the IT biz...and more. Win10 is the preferred software platform of DL apologists and Dilbertists.

I'm not sure if I conveyed my meaning clearly. Win10 sucks rocks.

If only I could have denied it, but - you may find this amusing considering we're on IF and not a computer forum - for some reason last time at the Star Lounge at GRU it took control of my Win 8.1 laptop even though I had tried to prevent it sneakily loading, and without warning it performed the uncommanded "deathgrade"... I couldn't stop it at the time because I had to board for EWR. So to my horror, my machine churned away, as I put it in my pack, and it eventually shut down. Sure enough, on reboot at EWR next morning, Bill had triumphed.

I've experienced previous nightmares e.g. Win95, yes WIN NINE FIVE, and if you remember that, then you know, how bad this experience always is. I loathe new OS and all it entails.... the ridiculous fetishism of useless new "features" that I don't want or need, and the stealthy elimination of previously useful and functional items, at best, or more usually, total lockup, blue screens of death, unprompted crashes caused by system instability and "incompatibility" with any and all drivers - like my audio and video card drivers that have been working fine for years before, etc.

What a global time-sink!

The longer I use Win10 the more I long for DOS5.1
