Microsoft shells out $10,000 for windows 10 update

Microsoft is been using every opportunity to make Windows 10, latest version of its widely used OS famous. The system is available for free to download for all those who have Windows 7 or 8 operating system already.

Some people didn’t update as very few hardware are supportive to the update and some call it as a trick to make customers install the latest version.



Teri Goldstein had Windows 7 which automatically started updating to the latest version but the automatic update backfired Microsoft and made them loose $10,000 for making her machine unstable and then totally unusable. Microsoft customer support was unable to fix her computer.

“I had never heard of Windows 10. Nobody ever asked me if I wanted to update,” she told.

Her computer was slowed down to crawl. Microsoft said it has dropped its appeal to save on legal costs.
