Has Microsoft internally and secretly declared "WAR" on Windows 7 users?

  1. Tricking users into updating to Windows 10 is horrible. Not releasing a Service Pack 2 for Windows 7 was unjustifiable. I am in the process of re-installing Windows 7. I had to download 200+ updates. I re-installed Windows 7 fresh on a brand new hard disk drive. And after much wasted time waiting on updates to finish my screen went black and I had to re-boot. When the computer re-started it said the update had failed and it would be reverting the changes.

    "Failure configuring Windows updates. Reverting changes. Do not turn off your computer."

    So now we see the fruits and the philosophy behind not releasing a Service Pack 2. Making it as hard, painful, time consuming, and annoying as possible for anyone who wants to re-install Windows 7. These heavy-handed tactics aren't going to win you any consumer friendly awards...Microsoft.

    And it makes me wonder just how far Microsoft is willing to go to push Windows 10 onto the world. Is this by chance or on purpose?

    I would say purpose but the more I think about it, the more I think Microsoft has positioned themselves under a rock. They say they care about user feedback then seem not to care what that may actually be. Microsoft has never seemed more controversial or arrogant in my eyes.

    Yea, I'm feeling the same as cliffordcooley. Microsoft is putting themselves in a position that isn't going to end well, not with out change.

    It's like apple and how after they launch a new iphone, you update the os on your old one and suddenly it's slower.
