Windows 10 Free Upgrade Offer End Date Announced — July 29, 2016
Microsoft has announced that the free upgrade to Windows 10 currently available to Windows 7 and Windows 8 users at no cost, will end on July 29, 2016. If you’ve been waiting, the time has come. Microsoft will support Windows 7 and Windows 8 until 2020 and 2023 respectively, while those who upgrade to Win10 have a scheduled end of support date of 2025. If you’re thinking or have been waiting to make the jump to Windows 10, the time is now… or sometime prior to July 29, 2016 anyway or it will cost you about $100.00, the customary price of a legitimate copy of Windows.
If you’ve hesitated until the bugs got worked out, jump on in, the water is fine. Computers and problems seem to go hand in hand and Windows 10 is certainly no different. However, like all previous versions of Windows, bugs get fixed.
If you think Windows 10 is going to be difficult to learn or master, jump on in, the water is fine. Downloaded almost 300 million times, it’s more like Windows 7 than Windows 8, most Windows 10 users LOVE it, at least 99% of my customers do.
If you have heard all kinds of horrible stories about the upgrade not being truly free, jump on in, the water is fine. They are simply not true, period, end of conversation. While it’s true that some apps are available that do cost money, that is no different than every version of Windows ever made… applications, games or some programs often cost money, but the upgrade to Windows 10 is free, and there are thousands of great apps that are available free in the Microsoft Store.
Allow me to bottom line this for you, jump on in, the water is fine.
