Microsoft has faced criticism for changing the pop-up box encouraging Windows users to upgrade to Windows 10.
Clicking the red cross on the right hand corner of the pop-up box now activates the upgrade instead of closing the box.
And this has caused confusion as typically clicking a red cross closes a pop-up notification

Brad Chacos, senior editor at the PC World website, described it as a "nasty trick". "Deploying these dirty tricks only frustrates long-time Windows users who have very valid reasons to stick with operating systems they already know and love," he wrote.

This is no different to malware deployment in my book as we all expect windows dialogues to act as we command not as some selfish and greedy manager wishes to help bump his share portfolio, I wont ever be using such scumware that's a firm promise, when I get bored of windows Mint Linux will power my machine.

Microsoft, as bad as many things were before with it, has devolved even further into a malignant cancer.
