Windows 10 Free Upgrade Offer Ending Soon

Microsoft’s Windows 10 free upgrade offer ends on July 29th, 2016. After this date, if you want to upgrade your Windows 7 or Windows 8 computer to Windows 10, you’ll have to purchase a retail version of the software.

We don’t see any reason to upgrade. As we’ve pointed out in previous posts, installing a new operating system over your current OS can cause issues with drivers, printers, and software installations. However, if you still decide to upgrade, you will want to be aware of the July 29th deadline.

It might be worth doing the upgrade by tomorrow, even if you roll it back again immediately. http://www.infoworld.com/article/3098901/microsoft-windows/still-undecided-about-windows-10-heres-how-to-reserve-that-free-upgrade.html

That’s not a bad idea. However, rolling out and unrolling the update could be time-consuming for customers that don’t really need it in the first place.
