      Oh wow, first time I have ever known Microsoft to do that. Seems it's their way of getting people to upgrade to the latest versions quicker I think but still I don't believe people should feel forced to do so if they don't wish to.

      I agree with Shortie, it kind of sounds like they are trying to get people to upgrade to the next system faster.

      lol I'm still running my faithful Windows XP.

      I can see where they are coming from. They want the same whether your on a Windows phone, tablet or pc and that's only possible with the new version's
