We thought this was happening back in Sep-Oct, now it's official.  This pretty much nukes craptops ...and drive a lot of users to chromebooks, like me.

The article doesn't mention 10 S, which is what Windows is putting on the crapbooks these days.  S probably won't require the update because they are pretty restricted in what they updated or allow installed.
