Windows 7 User Sues Microsoft and its CEO Satya Nadella: If you remember, back in July 2015, Microsoft rolled out Windows 10 and during its initial stage, the company offered Windows 10 for free of charge. The free upgradation pack is available to those who were running Windows 7 and Windows 8.1.
However, many users were not happy with the upgradation process because the software giant launched an app called “Get Windows 10” which was meant to begin the upgrade process automatically.
Well, to make things fast, the software giant also changed the behavior of the X button in the top right corner from close to OK, which triggers the Windows 10 upgradation process whenever the user wanted to cancel it.
Recently, a former Windows 7 user from Albuquerque, New Mexico filed a lawsuit for damages caused by Microsoft and its CEO Satya Nadella. The user claims that his Asus 54L laptop was automatically upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and immediately became non-functional.
The proposal is for Microsoft to give a new copy of Windows 7 – in this case, a downgrade via a downloadable digital version, as well as the operating system activation code. Or if the company doesn’t accept to downgrade, then it needs to pay $600 million for the damages.
Well, the complaint has been already submitted to the Denver District Court in the United States and Microsoft has 30 days to push the downgrade or pays him more than half a million dollars in damages.
