    Valid opinion.

    No we weren't. We were talking about people who apparently are adverse to change, and how they managed to keep things the same for 10 years but in your eyes cannot seem to avoid Windows 10 because of an icon.
    I have an entire family of people like that who didn't even notice the icon until I pointed it out.  Then you brought up Windows Insiders...
    MS probably should allow metered connections  to be on ethernet, but the literal definition of a hotspot means it is wireless. So for this discussion, its not really relevant.

    Switching to a new group of people?  So now you are talking about techies?  Insiders at that?

    Anecdotal evidence is anecdotal.  Admittedly, so is mine, but at least mine is with a dozen people, and not 1.

    To be quite honest, not a single person in my family noticed that icon.  I really doubt that my family is an exception.  If these people have changed nothing in the past 10 years, they aren't going to update because of an icon.
     
    Your entire argument hinges on the exact kind of users that aren't going to be updating to Windows 10 unless they buy a new machine.  Upon which time, they will learn new things.

    Pointing to another thread is not an answer.  Show me where half the users here think as you claim.  If you cannot, then you have built a strawman.
    So let me get this straight.  For 10 years they have resisted MS advertising and now suddenly they will not?
     
    Swiss cheese man....swiss cheese.

    Again, you are talking about average users who, when they setup their computer, chose default options.  One of them runs Windows Update automatically.
     
    So this is not a valid argument.  If nothing changes in the past 10 years, then what made them to up and decide to upgrade to Windows 10?  This theoretical debate has more holes than swiss cheese.

    Stop building a strawman.  Who actually argued that?

    Your argument doesn't make any sense, because 10 hasn't become harder, nor easier than past versions.  So problems they have now, they would have had before.
    If anything, Windows 10 will have less of an impact on metered data even if its not setup as metered because it has less updates available to it.
     
    If someone is adverse to change, what the hell are they doing upgrading to Windows 10?

    Chrome came into the market with other browsers trumping it 10 times over with features.  Now look at it.  So I wouldn't put all my eggs in that basket just yet.

    Its part of our partner agreement, and it works fine, so why not?

    Again, I used my hotspot with Windows 10 and it saw it as metered.
    That said, how did they ever survive with Windows 8.1, 8, or even 7?
    These same people choose defaults for everything and automatic Windows Update happens to be one of them.

    Ignorance is a choice they make.  When a new version of anything comes out, OF COURSE you are expected to learn the new features.  There is no relearning all of Windows.  You learn what is new and what has changed.  This is the problem with computer users today.  They expect someone to learn things for them.

    I've left automatic drivers on my laptop, but mostly because it is an HP Spectre x360 and they seem to work wonderfully.

    Well again, it is expected the user learns how to use their OS.  Nobody else can do it (learning) for them.
