How Microsoft will cram Windows 10 even harder down your PC's throat early next year

New OS will be 'recommended' automatic update

Microsoft will automatically download Windows 10 to millions more PCs in a "recommended" Windows update early next year.
The tech giant shows no signs of slowing the rollout of its new operating system, utterly undeterred by the growing public outcry at its pushy attitude.

Windows 10 already appears as a free "optional" update for some Windows 7 and 8.1 systems, and soon this will be widened to all machines running a genuine copy of Win 7 and 8.1.

Then early next year, Windows 10 will become a free "recommended" update – meaning it will be immediately downloaded by any PC or device that automatically installs "important" and "recommended" updates.

Windows 10 will therefore find its way onto potentially millions more machines because Microsoftrecommends that people always install "important" and "recommended" updates automatically.
