A Windows 7 user from Albuquerque, New Mexico sues Microsoft over Windows 10 upgrade. Frank Dickman has announced that he ready to sue Microsoft and the company CEO, Satya Nadella.
Frank Dickman claims that his Windows 7 laptop has been upgraded to Windows 10 automatically, and new operating system (Windows 10) made it completely useless. He explains that the Asus 54L notebook “became non-functional” after upgrading to Windows 10. Frank is ready to the company unless Microsoft gives him back a new copy of Windows 7 or $600 million.
The lawsuit was filled on 14 February, 2017. His lawsuit gives Microsoft 30 days. TheRegister points out that Dickman just wants to downgrade from Windows 10 to Windows 7 with a digital download and an activation code offered by Microsoft unless he moves this dispute to court in 30 days.
However, as of now, Microsoft hasn’t made a statement about Frank Dickman’s lawsuit. This is not the first time that Microsoft has faced the legal court issue over the forced Windows 10 upgrade. Back in 2016, a woman from California sued Microsoft about her laptop which was upgraded to Windows 10 without her consent, costing Microsoft no less than $10,000.
Windows 10 and Windows 7’s market share are almost same as of last month’s data. And about a month ago Microsoft officially moved Windows 7 from mainstream support into extended support. Microsoft launched Windows 10 about 2 and a half year ago, and the company has received significant feedback from consumers to businesses. Since the launch of the new operating system, Microsoft has unveiled hundreds of new devices various OEMs. Honestly, it’s quite strange to know that a device got upgraded even after Microsoft officially closed the loophole to get free Windows 10 upgrade last month.
