Microsoft Corp. may have gained some approval for making its Windows 10 upgrade free for some time to some of its users, but it’s not without a catch. Microsoft wants one billion devices to be running Windows 10 by the end of 2018. It would have been a noble goal to accomplish if Microsoft has not pushed users to upgrade when they didn’t want to. Many users were not too happy about constantly being nagged to update to the new version of Windows and resorted to disabling critical updates. Despite getting a lot of heat for the forceful software update and even being sued because of it, Microsoft doesn’t seem to be bothered at how pissed of some of its users are.
