It's a beautiful day, and I just can't stay cooped up. I head to work early to enjoy all this sunlight. When I get to work an hour early I start booting up the computers I use at work. Everything is going swell; I'm even congratulated for upgrading to Windows 10. Wait a minute....
What have you done to me Microsoft?!!!
I had to scratch my head at that one. Not only did I not install Windows 10, I don't even have a copy to install. With a full 57 minutes to fix my computer so I can do my job, I start doing research. Turns out Microsoft has been silently downloading Windows 10 install files to people's computers via Windows Update without asking. Then you accidentally hit Okay on a popup, and voila; you've been "upgraded".
A little more research, and I figure out how to downgrade back to Windows 7, AKA fix my computer so I can do my job. I do the first time setup stuff... and it errors out. Twenty minutes of troubleshooting later, and it still won't boot into Windows 10. What an upgrade Microsoft. You sure know what I want better than I do.
With 20 minutes left, and a big red whelp from where I've been banging my head against my desk, a thought occurred to me. I can get to the EULA. What happens if I say, "No"? I know what happens with other operating systems; it just shuts down. But I'm out of ideas. So I try it.
"If you decline the license terms, you will exit the upgrade."
That's a risk I'm willing to take, Microsoft. Sure enough, 20 minutes later my computer was back to the way I had left it before the weekend. As for me and Microsoft; that's gonna take some time.
