Re: Battle With Win10

But we don't know yet if users of earlier versions of Windows will continue to be bombarded by Microsoft with nag messages in the system tray about buying an upgrade.  These, if they are intrusive enough, may be wanted to be blocked, especially if blind users hear ongoing messages automatically read by their screen-readers interrupting what they are doing.  Also, if the messages are intrusive enough, sighted people may want to block them as wel.  We'll see.  Microsoft has gone out of its way to try to cram Windows 10 down the throats of its users.  We'll see if they are less intrusive about it in future.
