So my Win 10 Pro 1909 at home and office were force-upgraded to 2004 without any recourse (or even me knowing), other than my being able to roll back to 1909 for the office workstation, for now, owing to encountering show-stoppers.

 

Today I went to "defer feature upgrade for 365 days" for the other PC that took the journey to 2004 (standard practice in "defensive computing") , and only to be confronted with this rudeness:

 

https://www.thurrott.com/windows/windows-10/237087/windows-10-pro-users-can-no-longer-defer-windows-updates

 

And they pushed that through during the height of the Pandemic so it flew under the radar for most, I dare say.

 

Here stupid me was thinking with B***y being preoccupied with humanity's health and welfare while partaking in a little creative asset division  ... there'd be a wee less fervour in screwing the helots and a little more embracing of public-mindedness, good-will open source etc ...

 

Forget Nuance.  Redmond should join the rocket race and blast the exec team to Mars!

 

P.S., https://redmondmag.com/articles/2020/07/06/windows-10-deferral-mix-up.aspx

 

So maybe the IT gurus frequenting this forum can shine a light in this jungle for us peasants on how we can minimize disruption by hacking out a path in "Group Policies" and similar swamps.  No wonder my own father, a retired decades-long SAP programmer, finally ditched Windows and bought himself a MacBook.  The way he told me (and my mom) the other day that he had "always wanted a Mac" was not unlike someone "coming out of the closet" in days of yore ... .

 

But there is nothing funny with these never-ending shenanigans from Redmond.

 

And you Dragonistas - good luck to you (and to me)!
