    Firstly there are the software losses. Most of these will only affect a small number of users, but upgrading will mean saying goodbye to Windows Media Center, the card game Hearts, and Windows 7’s desktop gadgets. Anyone in the habit of using floppy disks on Windows will also have to install new drivers, and Microsoft warns that watching DVDs will also require “separate playback software.” Microsoft manager Gabriel Aul has said on Twitter that a DVD option for Windows 10 is coming “later this year,” but early upgraders can always download VLC instead.

    They (MS) always have to dictate what people should have/use.  I’ll be skipping this freebie (at least as long as possible).

    Not my floppy disks! cheeky  

    I agree with Bob2701.  I don’t use any of the software/features mentioned in the article.  No great loss for me.  Move with the times…. unlike the U.S. Navy who still uses XP
