My local computer store man told me today that there is no longer any danger of my W7 being compulsorily upgraded to W10, as it was only on for free 12 months. Does this have any substance?

Not until August:

The free upgrade offer will end on July 29 and we want to make sure you don’t miss out. After July 29th, you’ll be able to continue to get Windows 10 on a new device, or purchase a full version of Windows 10 Home for $119.

[sarcasm]Perhaps after July Microsoft will still force upgrade you to Windows 10, but won't allow the PC to function afterwards until the $119 is paid.[/sarcasm]

I don't think even M$ could overcome the public outcry (or litigation) of that.

I do agree to the extent of event log, But some drawbacks in classical os are also there, like missing OneNote.

I don't know how I've missed this and let it go unanswered for 5 years.
That was a MICROPHONE reference, not a TELEPHONE reference! Geesh!

OK, the world is set right now, and balance has been restored.
