Windows Security update package MS16-023 for Internet Explorer doesn't only contain security patches, but also a few other things, including: "This update adds functionality to Internet Explorer 11 on some computers that lets users learn about Windows 10 or start an upgrade to Windows 10."

Microsoft does not reveal what this means, or what this has to do with Internet Explorer. According to Woody Leonhard over at Infoworld, the update pushes a banner on Internet Explorer 11's New Tab Page advertising the company's new operating system Windows 10.

Unfortunately the ads can't be uninstalled without uninstalling the whole security update package.

Actually that isn't a good reason.
It's been 5 week now since I booted in to my Windows 7 installation, I have been using Linux Lite in that time and the Windows software I have wanted to run has ran fine through Wine.
Admittedly it hasn't been a lot and mostly games which I have run, but all but one has run without a problem and all were just as easy to install and run as they are in Windows.
There is no way in hell I will ever install Windows 10 and sell my soul, so if that is all the problems I will face my Windows days are over.
I am loving this Linux Lite, it's stable, easy to use and it isn't Windows 10! ;)
