No actually MS was not "caught out deliberately being underhanded and manipulative....."
Instead ignorant people are very loud in making that claim.
Now I will explain what I mean.
I just followed this link that naib provided;
And I looked really hard at that notice and that notice clearly and specifically states that the "Upgrade has been scheduled ...." and to click here to cancel. If anyone thinks that clicking the X is supposed to un-schedule the upgrade action they are mistaken. It's a lazy assumption, "the computer is supposed to know what I want".
The fact that the author of that article keeps calling that task scheduler notice an "advertisement" is further ignorance in print. If clicking the X cancelled this activity in the past then that was the bad programing not the newer behavior.
I'm an IT guy, I do IT for a living, I am certainly not alone here. You go into enough different operating systems and do enough work with them and you learn to read and not assume.
In fact, you learn not to trust them at all and take every precaution you can because if you do IT, you know Murphy is alive and well at all times.
If the battery, in the switch that is my NTP time server, hadn't died last night, Kerberos wouldn't be fucking me hard right in the time window set aside for backing up the SQL server.
Do what it says, not what you think it's supposed to do.
NOW look at these three
my post from about a year ago AND a direct quote from that time
This notification means your Windows 10 upgrade will occur at the time indicated, unless you select either Upgrade now or “Click here to change upgrade schedule or cancel scheduled upgrade”. If you click on OK or on the red “X”, you’re all set for the upgrade and there is nothing further to do.
A MS answers page backing up this was stated
3) the KB page todayThis notification means your Windows 10 upgrade will occur at the time indicated, unless you select either Upgrade nowor “Click here to change upgrade schedule or cancel scheduled upgrade”. If you click on OK or on the red “X”, you’re all set for the upgrade and there is nothing further to do.
See how it has been updated to then state the usual behaviour will occur YET a year ago this wasn't the case...Note: If you click on the red "X", the screen will close and no further action is needed. This notification is designed to appear every few days until you choose one of the options provided above.
seriously, I don't understand a few people here... the evidence is there yet doublethink
