I don't know. Microsoft's behavior has caused some people to switch to Apple and some to switch to Linux, but I think most Windows users will just continue happily on using Windows 10. It seems to me that most of the people complaining about Windows 10 are old guys like me who have been using computers for a long, long time. Microsoft is not interested in the grumpy old techie guy demographic.

IT people supporting enterprise systems do seem to be a bit ticked off by the mandatory updates in Win 10, but that is in part because it will likely eliminate their jobs, though only if Microsoft is competent enough not to distribute enterprise-wrecking updates, which so far is doubtful.
One thing led to another and somehow I ended up on Linux.
