I figured.  M$FT abandons a product but still makes it have to get 
approval to be used.  Makes perfect $en$e.

What's the story with XP these days?  Does it still have to phone home
to get a code to run?

That does it. I'm looking for another OS.

Put it behind a firewall, then block access to all MS hosts. *evil grin*

Never the less, I agree.  I think I should _own_ my system,
not use in on loan from Microsoft.

I'm still able to use XP for all the things that require
MSWin, but I think I see the day approaching where I'll have
to upgrade.  Win7, I guess...

Windows 10: You'll get UPDATES LIKE IT or NOT - unless you have 
Enterprise Edition

'You agree to receive automatic updates without notice'

Microsoft's licensing on the upcoming Windows 10 OS means that most 
users will find their systems updating on command from Redmond 
without any option to stop this.


The Licensing Agreement for Windows 10, as found in the latest 
release candidate build 10240 of Windows 10 Professional, states:


The Software periodically checks for system and app updates, and 
downloads and installs them for you.


You may obtain updates only from Microsoft or authorised 
sources, and Microsoft may need to update your system to provide you 
with those updates.


By accepting this agreement, you agree to receive these types of 
automatic updates without any additional notice.


Microsoft's intention is that users will be always up-to-date, not 
only with security patches, but also with feature updates.


This makes it easier for the company to keep pace with changing 
technology, and provides developers with a more consistent target 
for applications.


The downside is that feature upgrades can potentially break 
applications, or drivers for peripherals such as printers and 
scanners. Those who value stability above having the latest features 
may prefer to install security updates only.


Windows 10 does allow this, but only for businesses running the 
Enterprise Edition of Windows. These customers can opt for the Long 
Term Service Branch (LTSB), which is updated only every 2-3 years 
(just like traditional Windows releases)

.
That does it. I'm looking for another OS.



You WILL run only Software from the M$ collective!
