Why I decided to buy a new Dell XPS 8900 i7 (sixth gen) with Win 10 for a small family business instead of opting for a Windows 7 Pro. I had been waiting to see how the new Win10 OS was shaping up, first, though, ( and get any bugs out) before switching over. But my eight year old Dell 530 Inspiron w/ WinXP "workhorse" began "acting up" in November and didn't have a choice.

Most big firms will move over to Windows 10.
For instant our local Council I noticed today were getting ready to do so.

Does M$ understand anti trust laws and what a monopoly is?

Well there are other operating systems out there so Microsoft doesn't have a monopoly except on Microsoft products which they decided what system requirements are needed for there systems and which one they support. Apple only supports certain hardware as well. Now you can get Lynx system which you write the codes if anything goes wrong. Oh they have requirements as well. As for businesses lots of them have Lynx style systems that use older hardware and there IT departments writes codes for company. So I don't understand anti-trust or monopoly when so many options are out there. No where does Microsoft say you have to use there product only requirements and support to use there product.

But to use underhanded tactics such as "recommended Updates" to permit unsuspecting users to upgrade to an OS they had no intent to do is despicable. Many users out there just update anything that is in Windows Update. Call it what you will, this is just plain wrong.

And if you believe that this article does not reek of anti trust laws then jst follow along like sheep

Again your choice. No where in anti trust laws does it say to support hardware for life of hardware. There are life cycles in Microsoft for years and if you don't want to upgrade then it becomes unsupported. This is a product that you choose to buy and Microsoft updates regularly and if you don't want that then you can go to a different operating system or not update by either blocking the update, uninstalling update or download a 3rd party then it becomes unsupported. It states Recommend not Required so it is your choice. As the article stated it is given you 18 months to upgrade to a supported system to get the drivers and software to work on newer hardware as it is designed to work other than that it will be unsupported and may or may not work again your choice.

"If you own a system with an Intel 6th generation Core processor—more memorably known as Skylake—and run Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, you'll have to think about upgrading to Windows 10 within the next 18 months. Microsoft announced today that after July 17, 2017, only the "most critical" security fixes will be released for those platforms and those fixes will only be made available if they don't "risk the reliability or compatibility" of Windows 7 and 8.1 on other (non-Skylake) systems."

If you want new processors that support lets say USB 3 which 7 doesn't then you will need new operating system that supports USB 3.

Windows 7 is 10 years old and Microsoft is still supporting with critical security fixes until 2020. Here is Apples. Oh this is months not years. HMM so many choices.

Microsoft is in fact dictating to hardware manufactures what to make and what it will support. You believe what you will and just join the sheeple parade of MS Fan Boys.
