How to Perform a Clean Install of macOS Sierra   

Clean or Upgrade Install of macOS Sierra?

The upgrade install is by far the easiest method of upgrading your Mac to macOS Sierra. The upgrade install preserves all of your current user data, documents, and apps, while upgrading the existing operating system on your Mac's startup drive to macOS Sierra. The advantage is that once the upgrade is completed, your Mac is ready to go, with all your personal data intact and ready to be used.

The clean install option, on the other hand, replaces the contents of the target drive, wiping away any existing data on the drive and replacing it with a pristine copy of macOS Sierra.

Microsoft scrubs Windows 7 PCs of upgrade nagware   

Ends 18-month campaign that offered free Windows 10 upgrades, and endlessly pestered those who didn't want the new OS
Microsoft has begun yanking the long-lambasted "Get Windows 10" nag software from Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 PCs, according to a support document.

The document posted to Microsoft's site Tuesday said that the company was fulfilling a pledge that it would remove the promotional code and content after the free Windows 10 upgrade offer expired at the end of July.
Served to Windows 7 and 8.1 users via Windows Update, the removal process strips seven previous updates that were force fed beginning in early 2015. "This update removes the Get Windows 10 app and other software related to the Windows 10 free upgrade offer that expired on July 29, 2016," the accompanying support document stated.

Microsoft's decision to force Windows 10's patch and maintenance model on customers running the older-but-more-popular Windows 7 has patch experts nervous.
"Bottom line, everyone is holding their breath, hoping for the best, expecting the worst," said Susan Bradley in an email. Bradley is well known in Windows circles for her expertise on Microsoft's patching processes: She writes on the topic for the Windows Secrets newsletter and moderates the PatchMangement.org mailing list, where business IT administrators discuss update tradecraft.
"Individual patches will no longer be available," Nathan Mercer, a senior product marketing manager, said in an Aug. 15 post to a Microsoft blog.

Instead, Microsoft will transplant the Windows 10 maintenance model onto Windows 7 and 8.1: They will receive updates that cannot be broken into their parts.
