Microsoft Sued Over Windows 10 Update Campaign

Microsoft is facing more lawsuits over its Windows 10 upgrade campaign. I never thought I would say something like this about a free upgrade but I'll just be glad when the offer expires.

Microsoft is facing two lawsuits seeking class-action status related to the company’s campaign to get people to use Windows 10. Three Florida men sued Microsoft in U.S. District Court in Florida on Friday, saying Microsoft’s Windows 10 update prompts violated laws governing unsolicited electronic advertisements, as well as Federal Trade Commission prohibitions on deceptive and unfair practices.
