Re: Upgrades: When We Microsoft Get This Down ?
> but why? What benefit do they have, are they covering up?

@Shakeeb:

I think Microsoft has a very strong reason to push for Windows 10 upgrades. And thats from eco system perspective. Microsoft has introduced its latest Windows 10 phones in the market. Its company's latest attempt (and sixth I believe) to get into the business of smart phones.

You cant really enjoy the full feature of Windows 10 phone unless you've a Windows 10 OS in your laptop or desktop.

So I believe by pushing for Windows 10 upgrade, Microsoft is actually pushing for Windows Phones.

@Joe: Really! Where are they advising this? I had an impression that these old Microsoft partners too were pushing for upgrades.

Re: Upgrades: When We Microsoft Get This Down ?
yes, but my problem, I use my phone as a phone... for gaming I use old xbox and xbox 360... 

I just could not breake myself to pay top dollar for the technology... I came from the humble family :)...

I think you are orphaned.

Get out there and support the industry by buying something flashy and new.
