    Microsoft's new business model for Windows 10: Pay to play

    The basic proposition of Windows 10 Home is "Set it and forget it." A penny-pinching PC user once was able to get by with Home edition. Now, many of the traditional management and configuration options you once took for granted are not available on this edition.

    Updates, for example, can't be deferred. Both quality updates (like the monthly Patch Tuesday security fixes) and feature updates (the free major upgrades, such as the Anniversary Update) are managed by Microsoft. In addition, there are fewer customization options than in the past. Features that used to have an on-off switch now can only be managed with manual registry updates, if at all.

    The so-called Windows 10 Consumer Experience means upsell opportunities appear on the Start menu automatically, with suggested apps on the left and up to five tiles on the right, for Twitter and games like Candy Crush. The Get Office app is also included in every copy of Windows 10, offering free trials with the goal of getting users to pay for a monthly or annual Office subscription.

    The Massive Windows 10 Update Failure

    The recent Microsoft Windows 10 Anniversary Update ruffled more than a few feathers as many users are experiencing a reboot cycle. This was reported during the beta phase and apparently ignored by the company.

    These things are bound to happen when a company takes a cavalier attitude and constantly slipstreams updates. This is unlike the previous era of the neverending patch Tuesday. The difference: these Windows 10 updates are not optional.

    [​IMG]This auto-update approach harkens back to the America Online era of the 1980s and 1990s when the service dominated the pre-Internet era. I remember Microsoft, then promoting the MSN online service designed to compete with AOL, was in awe of the AOL update system.

    You would boot the AOL system and it would update the complete program whether you wanted to or not. You would often end up with a whole new version and a completely different graphical user interface. The company was not shy about changing everything.

    Microsoft always held this as an ideal method for updates so it would not have to deal with the outrageous complexity of a world of half-patched versions of its OS in the wild. To make things even more complex, this hodge-podge was running on an ecosystem of computers that were also all different.

    Apparently Windows 10 is a joke and its users jokers.

    I have the same issue by using Windows 10 so far. After using few days my computer getting slower. But I have used Windows 7 for long long time. That time I didn't face this problem.

    You may also buy yourself a flash drive and mount a linux distro on it, so that you can actually walk around with a complete linux system in your pocket.
