Microsoft has confirmed that it's pushing out Windows 10 upgrade images to Win7 and Win8 users via Windows Update, even if those users haven't requested them.
The upgrade image is several gigabytes in size, easily blowing through bandwidth caps imposed by lower-tier ISPs, and some users are getting hit with surprise overage charges on their ISP bill owing to the unrequested download. It is unclear, once the upgrade image is in place, whether Windows Update will attempt to automatically upgrade you to Win10.
Individuals who closely manage their computers may want to keep an eye out for this.
