There have been numbers of cases where peoples are causing Microsoft for pushing unwanted Windows 10 update on their Windows 7 systems. But none of them has claimed few billion dollars for that annoyance.
Bloke sues Microsoft: Give me $600m – or my copy of Windows 7 back
Frank Dickman from New Mexico, this Windows 7 user filed a lawsuit against Microsoft for damages not only from Microsoft from Satya Nadella himself.
The complaint is again user’s Asus based laptop which was updated from Windows 7 to Windows 10, in what is being called civil rights violation in the lawsuit.
He either wants Nedella to pay up $600 million or just put Windows 7 back on his Machine. “The only sensible remedy is for Microsoft Corporation to supply the OEM version of its operating system by download from its website and confirmed by the key code which came with the computer,” the filing reads (via the Reg).
“Failure of Microsoft Corporation and its CEO (Satya Nadella) to provide this function within thirty days of the provided summons should yield a payment from the two defendants to the plaintiff of a remedy… of six hundred million dollars.”
Regardless of the hilarity that some are finding in this lawsuit, this case is yet another proof that no one likes forced updates or updates that break user machines. In his complaint, Dickman wrote that his Asus 54L “became non-functional immediately” after Windows 10 upgrade, which also removed “cached, or backup, version of Windows 7.”
Apparently, he did contact Microsoft’s customer care but was referred to Asus to replace the Windows 7 copy he had lost during the Windows 10 installation. However, he didn’t want to contact Asus because the lawsuit suggests the “original supplier is untrustworthy.” He adds that the only way he could be certain that a “quality Windows 7” is being supplied to him is if it comes from Microsoft directly.
While Dickman might not get much luck inside the courtroom, Because you can restore back to Windows 7 within 30 days of Windows 10 installation.
