    Microsoft has done all kinds of shady things to get people to move to Windows 10, so this doesn't surprise me a bit. I guarantee they're doing this out of greed; they already stooped to fearmongering and injecting their OS forcefully onto people's computers without their knowledge or permission so why is this any different?

    Ironically you pretty much have to turn Windows Update off to stop the series of updates that try to download Windows 10 and install it (at least you did; I don't know if it's that way now,) so this latest attempt to hamper you is pretty much useless.

    In my opinion, t'd be pretty obnoxious to create updates to prevent new hardware from being used on legacy software. If the hardware is backwards-compatible, then let it be.
