Ever since its introduction back in July of this year, Microsoft has been trying to get users to upgrade to its newest Windows 10 Operating System, offering the OS as a free upgrade within the first year of its release, before being forced to pay standardized pricing. They’ve offered to upgrade your laptop/desktop for you in any of their retail locations, and even have gone as far as notifying Windows users of a recommended update on their PCs. While some may view this as a bit much, what Microsoft is doing now may just push some users over the edge.
According to InfoWorld, clicking on the free Windows 10 upgrade notification in the system tray presents the user with a full screen ad (pictured below) with only two options: ‘Upgrade Now’ or ‘Upgrade Tonight’. Seemingly there is no way to dismiss the page either, other than clicking on the red ‘X’ in the upper right hand corner. Microsoft has come under the gun time and time again for it’s obnoxious means to try and get users to upgrade to Windows 10, and while some may definitely not mind using the OS (myself included), I can’t help but imagine that this maneuver may leave a bad taste in some mouths.
