Not an Accident: Microsoft's Monopoly is Dead, So Microsoft Plans to Maliciously Force Everyone to Move to Vista 10

Do what Microsoft says, or else...

Violence



Summary: Microsoft's force-feeding of spyware is not an accident as Microsoft tried to frame it but probably a test run, ahead of Microsoft's effort to impose installation of this spyware on everyone

"MICROSOFT IS ABOUT TO INCUR the wrath of loyal users once again," The Inquirer wrote about yet another dead product (among many more), "after confirming that the company is to merge its popular Sunrise calendar app into Outlook, discontinuing the standalone version "down the line"."

"Users are upset about it, but Microsoft doesn't care what users think or feel. Computers are effectively being hijacked."Microsoft is in a bad state, so no wonder many products get canceled, including some versions of Windows (especially for devices or mobile). What does Microsoft do? The usual: dirty tricks. It already annoys a lot of so-called 'customers' by forcing them to get Vista 10 and this new puff piece says that "Microsoft is planning to get a lot more aggressive about upgrading existing machines." The puff piece repeats lies and fake figures from Microsoft, then quotes Microsoft spinners. They try market this unacceptable force-feeding (which Microsoft was trying to spin as an 'accident') as a good thing by saying things like "Microsoft is also making some changes designed to entice software pirates to upgrade."

It even gets more like a marketing placement with statements like these: "This change in approach is all part of Microsoft’s overall effort to get 1 billion devices running Windows 10 within two or three years of its release. As long as Microsoft avoids nagging people to upgrade more than once, or forcibly updating Windows 7 and Windows 8 users, then this latest change won’t trigger a backlash."

Nonsense.

They already downloads it without consent, turning computers into the world's worst spying devices and turning users into 'products'. Users are upset about it, but Microsoft doesn't care what users think or feel. Computers are effectively being hijacked. It's all about what Microsoft wants and it simply commandeers its botnet to impose use of Vista 10, fulfilling a false prophecy of Vista 10 'success'. How much more of this abuse are people willing to tolerate?
