Microsoft’s Windows 10 interrupts a live and important TV broadcast with an unwanted upgrade
Microsoft is so eager to push its Windows 10 and make it world’s number operating system that it doesnt consider what user needs. We have had cases of Microsoft pushing Windows 10 upgrade popups to Windows 7 and 8.1 users despite of the fact that some of them dont want to upgrade to the Redmond giants latest operating system.
Ever since it decided to make Windows 10 a recommended update we have had hundreds of users complaining but Microsoft seems to have taken that in stride.
However things seemed to have moved from bad to worse when the Windows 10 upgrade popup interrupted a live show on TV.
Microsoft’s free Windows 10 “recommended” upgrade nag interrupted a weather person mid-flow as she was live describing the conditions around Des Moines, Iowa, on KCCI News.
If you are a Iowa citizen and were watching the KCCI 8 News Meteorologist Metinka Slater’s thunderstorm update and warning of 12 hours of heavy rainfall, you would have noticed the live and important program interrupted by an unwelcome upgrade message covering up much of the radar screen.
“Microsoft recommends upgrade to Windows 10, what should I do?” a surprised Slater asked.
As always the annoying window offered two choices — ‘Upgrade now’, or ‘Start download, upgrade later’. Slater wisely chose neither option and switched to another video source instead.
