Bad Microsoft! Stop Pushing Windows 10 On Consumers Uninvited!

Dear Microsoft,

YOU HAVE BROKEN OUR TRUST.

We did not ask you to push your Windows 10 Operating System to our computers uninvited. You have done so nefariously using the trusted Windows Update system designed to deliver typical Operating System and Security Updates. The Windows 10 Operating System is NOT an Update, it is an entirely new Operating System. Additionally, you have used lots of our bandwidth and hard drive space to download and store it onto our computers-- all completely unbidden.

YOU DID NOT ASK OUR PERMISSION. YOU HAVE BROKEN OUR TRUST.

Your new Operating System is designed to spy on us OUT OF THE BOX and to take our private information and deliver it somewhere else to persons unknown that we do not control. You collect our user contacts, calendar information, "associated input data", device location, what apps we use, and other personal, private information. You make it difficult to Opt Out. In fact, nobody is really sure if it is even possible to opt out completely. It even hands out our WiFi Password to other people without asking us. We do not care how much it is supposedly "better".

YOU DID NOT ASK OUR PERMISSION. YOU HAVE BROKEN OUR TRUST.

You have forced your Windows 10 Operating System on us and taken from us our choice. Furthermore, you have altered the EULA to make it impossible to sue Microsoft for redress in court. And you have added features which permit Microsoft to "Search and Destroy" any software on the computer that Microsoft does not like. Moreover, the Windows 10 "Upgrade" is not seamless. It changes user preferences, uninstalls desktop software, and even in a number of cases literally breaks the system upon installation. You have eliminated the ability for users to control the update process and you have even added a "UEFI Secure Boot" feature to keep people from choosing to use a different Operating System.

YOU DID NOT ASK OUR PERMISSION. YOU HAVE BROKEN OUR TRUST.

We the undersigned DEMAND that you cease and desist this practice at once! And that you never again remove our choice as consumers from us. There is a line and you have crossed it. WE DECIDE what we put on our computers and why, NOT YOU.

YOU DID NOT ASK OUR PERMISSION. YOU HAVE BROKEN OUR TRUST.
