    "Enterprise, it is missing many key consumer apps like Mail, Calendar, People, Photos, or even Cortana and the Windows app store."

    Excellent. Less bloat. As far as I'm concerned that's a better version than home or pro!

    But on machines that I don't intend upgrading any time soon, is it easy to make the stupid nag icon go away?

    Most it appears uninstallable. At least it let me uninstall them (except cortana and the app store). I running the pro version.

    Had to force the upgrade and it failed the first time with some odd error message. Guessed at uninstalled the AMD drivers and the second time worked...

    That was exactly my reaction, my principle reason for refusing W10, free or otherwise, being the privacy implications of those apps .... and the MS account.

    Re: Over 14 million machines update to Windows 10 in its first 24 hours

    I would have upgraded my (seldom used) Windows desktop VM if I could have easily found which retail version allows use in a VM. But I can't ... so I won't - and VM stays on WindowsXP.

    (Reading between the lines it looks like W10Pro is the one I need - but that's >£100. Of course, maybe I can upgrade from XP to 7Pro and then get my free upgrade that way - hee hee)

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    Already had my first "This is the Windows server centre, your computer has critical errors" call since upgrading. I guess upgrade time is harvest time for scammers.

    I had a similar but pre-Win10 call a few months back. It went something like ....

    Phone: ring-ring

    Me: Hello

    Caller: Good morning, sir, I'm calling about the problems with your Windows computer, and I'd ....

    Me: I don't have a Windows computer.

    Me: .....hello? .... hello?

    Phone : click, brrrrrrrrrrrr.



    In my defence, I was utterly truthful. I don't have "a" Windows computer, I have, if I counted right, 13 of them.

    14 million...... I thought I felt a disturbance in the force, as if millions of people read the user agreement and were suddenly silenced.

    Re: Over 14 million machines update to Windows 10 in its first 24 hours

    14 million people opening their PCs to upload user activity and ID data to Microsoft's servers forever. What joy, what rejoicing much be running like a tremor of ecstasy in the hearts of all at M$oft, and the CIA and NSA, and more..?

    http://www.computing.co.uk/ctg/news/2420044/backlash-grows-over-privacy-in-freemium-windows-10

    I will wait until this is satisfactorily resolved, or stick with my existing installations, then maybe move away from Microsoft altogether.
