So I'm perusing my updates and I noticed an additional optional update bring the total to 10. I checked out five of them and they were pretty lame, harmless. Then I decided to view my hidden updates. Guess what found. They went from optional to recommended. MS wasn't supposed to do this till next year. They lied!
Thing is, Ross, MS has been doing this to some users in trying to sneak the 10 upgrade through on non-10 machines. I was one of them until I installed GWX Panel, which ended the debacle and ensures update/upgrade settings remain as I set them

Jafo and I are not getting any of that. Just sayin.
Neither am I.... now, but not everyone is that lucky. I keep reading/hearing about people being bombarded constantly with updates to initiate the 10 upgrade, even after they set those updates ti 'hide' and update installs to manual, and I have to wonder if that's because it was done natively within the Windows environment, and that using a 3rd-party app is the answer to getting 'un-nagged'
As for my 'give a shit meter', I did calibrate it last night but I still don't... give a shit, that is. Perhaps it [the meter] needs a laxative.
