Overnight, her old Windows 7 PC had upgraded to new Windows 10, without her ever asking for it.
If you want to know the reasons for the abrupt pullback, just look at Microsoft's close partner, Intel, which has spent $10 billion developing chips for mobile devices, with virtually nothing to show for the effort.
