微軟透過 Windows Update 強制安裝新版 Edge

前幾天在虛擬機內的 Windows 突然被裝了新版的 Edge,發現國外也有報導出來了:「With Edge, Microsoft’s forced Windows updates just sank to a new low」。

這次是 Windows Update 推進來的,即使在 Windows 7 上已經 EoL (2020/01/14),不會有任何安全性更新,微軟也是濫用透過這個方式推進來:

這種方式也都讓大家想到與 antitrust 的關係:

It all immediately made me think: what would the antitrust enforcers of the ‘90s, who punished Microsoft for bundling Internet Explorer with Windows, think about this modern abuse of Microsoft’s platform?

到底會不會觸發呢...
