Windows 10 Free Upgrade Ends Soon!
The free offer to upgrade to Windows 10 expires on July 29th, and here are some things you should know:
- The offer is not likely to be extended.
- Any upgrades performed before the deadline are valid for as long as the device lasts.
- There is a slim possibility of some new upgrade offers after the 29th, but don’t hold your breath.
- Windows 10 will eventually become software as a service. Price is unknown at this time, but for Enterprise customers it looks like the cost will be just under $100 USD annually.
- Retail Windows 7 PCs and laptops will no longer officially be available after October 31st. You may however, still be able to get old stock.
If you are planning on upgrading, the Window is closing (no pun intended).
Extended support for Windows 7 ends in January 2020, so your PC will still receive security updates until that time if you choose to stick with Windows 7.
