If it does, it's probably a custom OS build that by-passes a few key features.  I know Dell use to do that.

I know this won't be for everyone, but Microsoft has an option for those who can't upgrade to the latest version of windows when windows 10 hits the slated EOS date.

lol if you PAY.... That is what MS ultimately wants is more money. Funny how people jumped at Win 10 because they thought they would not have to pay anymore. I still think people will not be happy. And probably no longer believe anything that Microsoft says about future versions if they ever try the "this will be the final version you ever need" stunt again.

I personally chose not to update to 11 at this time because I don't have to.  Also, because 11 give me those 8 and 8.1 vibes.

But for instance, my shop has a couple of computers that run 10 and can't be updated because of the software they run.  One is a state emissions inspection machine, and the other is a wheel alignment machine.

 I doubt the alignment machine needs internet access, not sure if the emissions one would either, don't need updates if your not connected to the internet.

They are both connected to the net.  The emissions machine has to link up with the states database during every inspection and for downloading software patches.  The alignment machine is also on the net so it too can download and install annual database updates.

 So alignment machine doesn't have to be net connected most of the time.

No, not really.  But the fact that is does have a net connection, makes it very useful to use AllData.  Mind you, this is online access only now.

Ya of course. Not like it is your call anyway but your boss'. Asking for it to not be online would be like asking a hospital to keep its software offline. Won't happen. They usually don't do their tech work themselves but have someone they hire to come do whatever to update or repair a computer. It is just easier all around to have it online especially when so much software does access to the net to access a database for various reasons. I completely get that.

I remember when I worked at the place downtown that helped disabled people with brain injury and many times they really needed someone working on it but it was always a matter of hiring someone. Companies usually hire someone outside to work on their computers if they don't have someone who is well-versed in their computer needs within the company.

Well, for the emissions machine, the state has a tech that they issue to us.  They do any and all repairs on the machine.  But that machine must be online because it's connected to a governmental database system. 

The alignment machine doesn't have to be connected to the net.  But is for when periodic software updates are done.  They too handle all repairs and software updates.

Now both machines are on a windows 10 business license supplied by the perspective suppliers.  We are not responsible for any security flaws they may have and cannot update windows in any way.

I saw that popup on my 13 gen Intel system.  But it's not coming up on my 9th gen Intel system.  I wonder if it's because I disabled tpm and secure boot on my 9th gen, but only disabled tpm on the 13th gen?
