There's a problem somewhere with some email addresses by the look of it. I've had two people with gmail.com addresses contact me by other means telling me they sent emails which I've not received. I'm going to contact Virgin Media tomorrow and find out what's going on.

Wasn't aware that Microsoft ever charged for upgrades, new operating systems yes but not upgrades and windows 10 has saved our company buying new pc's as it runs so much quicker than windows 7 was doing on the same pc with the same software, Apple's versions I'd guess are more of an upgrade with new features than completely new OS though being most definitely anti apple not overly certain on that, though that's more like win 10 upgrades are currently.

The XP 'updates' you currently see are actually the malicious items removal tool, Windows 7 support is due to finish January 14th 2020 from what I've read

ScimmyMike Hi.
Apple Operating System OS X (that is OS ten) (currently OS 10.12.2 called Siera) seems to have started 2001 as OS 10.0. So that is 15 years of just 'upgrading' (free) and looking at some reviews mostly glitch free.
Compare to Windows XP which I had in 2006 and the number of actually 'new' "operating systems" up to Windows 10 ? (Vista; 7; 8; 8.1; 10) Most of which seem to have come in for a lot of criticism?
I am not sure that the terminology 'upgrades' for Apple OS can compare to upgrades for Windows......I suspect that the Apple upgrades are something more comprehensive.
My experience started way back before PCs. Also I remember a lot of time with Windows 3.11.
The problem I now have is age and memory and it being rather difficult to learn new tricks so the problem of switching to NEW operating systems so often as Windows with their apparent many problems makes me shudder...let alone the cost. Like a great many of changeover people have commented...I wish I had started with my first PC with Apple in the first place. And as I said the Apple PC/Laptop will even allow you to run Windows alongside your Apple OS......so perhaps the best of both worlds?

Well, I think Apple's upgrade system stinks!
Wife's iPad mini now works at 50% speed after upgrade ios 8 to 9 (for which Apple promised performance improvements!). And Apple will then not permit you downgrade to previous version as you can with Windows.
Rotten apples should be thrown away!

Have you checked on the Apple forum to see if others are having a problem?......seemed to be a switched on lot there and not slow at telling Apple of problems, and there seemed to be an official monitoring it all to pick up complaints?

hope you can sort it out.

Yes, been on the forums, much acrimony there about their upgrade performance and policy.
