There are 100 people that taking part in a class action suit against Microsoft, I believe the number is expected to grow.

"There were cases when Windows 10 was installed without user approval, the lawsuit states. In addition, users said it was impossible to reverse installation once it had occurred."

Microsoft "failed to exercise reasonable care in designing, formulating, and manufacturing the Windows 10 upgrade," according the plaintiffs"

"As a result of its failure to exercise reasonable care, defendant distributed an operating system that was liable to cause loss of data or damage to hardware," they added, going on to say that without a warning or instruction, "a reasonable customer would not be aware of the problem."

Nothing will come of it. I am sure it is with older hardware or devices too.

No it is just every time there is a problem someones cries wolf and blames MS for operator error, incompetence,  wrong hardware, (new OS on old hardware is supposed to magically make it new) bad drivers (that are not certified), old programs that do not work (because author never updated sloppy code) or something else. Bunch of cry babies....... They should stay in a cave with Win98 or MS DOS.

As MUCH as I DETEST Microsoft, this suit makes me sure that lawyers should be decimated on a REGULAR basis!

New OS on old hardware??? That would be MS installing the updates.
Bad drivers??? That would be MS installing the updates.
As far as staying in the cave ... you still using the rusted antenna without radials?
