1- Unfortunately I haven't seen anything to substantiate the Seattle Times article. If true, it could open the flood gates of class action lawsuits and lawyers will be foaming at the mouth.
2- From many many forums there are a LOT of claims that an unattended W10 upgrade went through without EULA acceptance, but there again, it's those people's word just as it was Teri Goldstein's word that she didn't "Authorize" the upgrade.
3- I have a hard time feeling sorry for MS after the aggressive, and somewhat sneaky way they went about things ( especially this year ) whether W10 is a great OS or not.
4- I have W10 on an HP laptop and it seems fine to me, but the other computers in the house will stay W7 until W10 "Ages" a bit.

Some of the scuttlebutt indicates W10 upgrade was recently much more opt-out rather than opt-in; if the recent process was more or less automatic, then if the end-user was not present to opt-out, then the process merely and merrily continued."Take care of thy backups and thy restores shall take care of thee."
