Windows 10: Upgrade Now or Upgrade Tonight

We've said it a million times, nagging people to upgrade to Windows 10 is just going to piss people off. Nagging people with options like these just makes things worse.

On Sunday, Microsoft's over-the-top pushiness (or is it hubris?wink led the company to introduce a new Upgrade to Windows 10 dialog, shown in the screenshot. Windows 7 and 8.1 users who click on the Get Windows 10 icon in the system tray are now presented with two options: Upgrade now or Upgrade tonight. As you can see, there's no option to defer the upgrade, and no obvious way (short of the "X" in the upper-right corner) to dismiss the ad.
