Don’t miss out! The free upgrade offer to Windows 10 will end on July 29, 2016.

Thank goodness. I can soon remove my GWX control panel, that prevents this virus from entering my system :-)

Cheers Don...

You're mistaken. All it means is that they'll bill you after installing
the unwanted software.

You think there's no legal basis? You're right, of course, but they have
lots of money for lawyers.

If you *upgrade* to WIN10 from a pirate WIN7 do you still need the loader?

Do you have some recent reference which says that they're actually
going through with this?

Yes, they said this a year ago, but it's unwise to take Microsoft
at their word, let alone if it's a year old.

Well, GPX Control Panel is invisible and doing its job, so that's the
least of my worries.

That would be a tad hard, having no name, address, etc. to send the
bill to.

OTOH, they could cripple your installed version. Oh wait ... it's
already crippled, by design.

Heh. My parents asked me to do the "free" upgrade because a family
friend promised them it would make their laptop run faster and it is
FREE! and free is good right?

I said no, stick with Windows 7... really.

So they ignored my advice and got their neighbour to do do the
"upgrade". Now they want me to remove it... sigh... because their laptop
runs slow.

Sheez...

Looks like Scotland and Northern Ireland will do a UKEXIT.

A few days back I upgraded? this desktop to Win10. After seeing all the
hassles other people had when upgrading whilst Win10 was new, I thought
to wait a while till bugs were sorted. The upgrade went without a hitch.
Seems just as fast a before. It's a Q6700 Quadcore so it's no slouch.
Seems to work ok. The way I figure it, I have nothing to lose. I have
the original Win8.1 DVD so if it pisses me off I'll just revert back to
that OS level.
I also have a Q6600 beast here running Win7 so I might just give that a
go on the upgrade and see how it works.

The reason I thought I'd give the upgrade a go was that my brother in
Tasmania bought a Win8.1 equipped HP computer and I upgraded it to Win10
while I was visiting him a few weeks back. That was a low powered
computer and it went as well or better after the upgrade. Anyway, he's
happy enough with it. ;-)

I've got a junker dual-core laptop I installed 10 on to see how well
that would go and it went fine and the laptop is actually much more
responsive then before.
Mileage seems to vary.

Even the HM the Queen is pleased that now Britian will be able to
deport errorists.

http://bit.ly/28Ze6OB

My guess is that the UK Brexit places Australia and other nations
(Britian included) on a level trading platform, should be good for
Australian exports Agriculture particularly.
Australia needs better politicians than the corrupt mess we have now.

The Brexit vote is a rejection of globalisation. Also a rejection of the 1% who are the beneficiaries of globalisation. The Brexit voters are the 99%.. and theTrumps supporters. They are Howards Battlers in seats like Lindsay - currently being wooed by both Labor and the LNP but increasingly looking for 3rd options. Scarily they are also the Murdoch/tabloid/shock jock audience.

It might be worth looking at the causes of this widespread mass disaffection. It is a fact that we are seeing ever growing inequality of income, asset ownership, opportunity, employment, healthcare, education standards etc. This inequality is well advanced in the USA, Britain, Western Europe, Australia and elsewhere.

The neo-con trickledown stuff isn't working. People everywhere are being squeezed across the world. Brexit is a first major push back. It won't be the last. We will see Nexit and Frexit in the Eurozone sooner than we might want.

Brexit is the start of something big and there's no way of knowing where it will lead. We might all end up in a better place if we can tame unfettered capitalism.
