A man from Albuquerque, New Mexico sued Microsoft because of a failed forced Windows 10 upgrade. He demands $600 million in order to compensate his loss. (yes your read that right)

A civil complaint was filed on February 14 by Frank K. Dickman Jr. of albuquerque, according to this complaint he sues Microsoft because of a failed forced Windows 10 upgrade. The lawsuit that is provided gives Redmond a period 30 days to give the man the software or pay the full price.

In Dickman's statement we found this quote: "I own a ASUS 54L laptop computer which has an OEM license for Windows Version 7. The computer was upgraded to Windows Version 10 and became non-functional immediately. The upgrade deleted the cached, or backup, version of Windows 7." He claims that the laptop's OEM vendor is "untrustworthy", that way he can't obtain a legitimate copy of Windows7 to downgrade again.

"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"

"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."

What do you guys think about this complaint and proposed lawsuit?
