Microsoft wants every Windows user on 10

I couldn't find this portion of the Windows 10 insiders email anywhere, so I thought I'd post some of the email here.
Here in the Windows group, we've been working hard over the past couple months on getting people upgraded to Windows 10. With the release of Windows 10 in July and the update in November, we’re really happy about how it is coming together and the upgrade rate we’ve been seeing. We'd love to see every Windows user out there enjoying Windows 10. Since we released I've been getting tweets and emails from Windows Insiders who have been helping friends and family complete their upgrades.


Notice Gabe Aul's emphasis on 'we'. Some users don't want Windows 10, yet the emphasis is always *we* (Microsoft) want every Windows user on it.

I guess it isn't a surprise from a corporate perspective. I just wish Windows 10 wasn't 'stupid'. Also it looks like enterprise versions of Windows are excluded from the upgrade; guess I better pop on win 8.1 enterprise.

Yeah, I just finished deleting that from my email, reported it as spam so I never hear from that liar again. I can't figure out how to upload attachments which are email, so I pasted the full text, below:

Hi everyone,
Season's Greetings to you. Here in the Windows group, we've been working hard over the past couple months on getting people upgraded to Windows 10. With the release of Windows 10 in July and the update in November, we’re really happy about how it is coming together and the upgrade rate we’ve been seeing. We'd love to see every Windows user out there enjoying Windows 10. Since we released I've been getting tweets and emails from Windows Insiders who have been helping friends and family complete their upgrades.

One of my favorite stories came from Insider Joris Brauns in Antwerp. Joris knew his dad wanted to upgrade, but his dad felt more comfortable getting a little help. So when Joris was back at his parent’s house this past weekend, he upgraded his dad from Windows 7. "The most funny part was the moment when I was done installing Windows 10," Joris told us. "Our dog jumped on the table to take a peek!" And then he sent us the pix to prove it.
Joris, dad, and dog
Hey, Joris. Your dad – and your dog – do look happy. Thanks for telling us and for letting me share your upgrade story with our Insider community!
So, as many of you travel home for the holidays, you may end up helping friends and family complete their upgrades. When you do, we’d love to hear about it. Tell us your story – you can tweet to #Windows10 – and we might even compile a big picture collage with some of our favorite photos and stories.
I love these stories – not just because this is the season for sharing, but because it's great to see our Insiders wanting to share their Windows 10 excitement with friends and family ... and dogs.
Thanks again for being part of this awesome Insider community. Have a great holiday and a Happy New Year!
Thanks!

I don't know what's more dishonest: this email that liar wrote, or his blatant disregard of all the many problems MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ARE HAVING WITH DISGUSTING WINDOWS 10, AND ALL THE MILLIONS OF BORKED MACHINES WHICH ARE WINDOWS 7 AND 8 DUE TO BILIOUS MICRODAFT FORCING THE DOWNLOADS ON MACHINES WHICH DIDN'T REQUEST THEM.

The closest thing to Anti-Christ, is this guy and his company. NEVER will buy anything they sell.
