Free Windows 10 Upgrade Cutoff Set for July 29

Microsoft has reaffirmed the cut-off date for users looking to upgrade their Windows PC to Windows 10 for free.

The free upgrade to their newest operating system will be cut off effectively July 29th, afterwards you’ll need to fork up $119 to get a new copy of the OS.

“The free upgrade offer to Windows 10 was a first for Microsoft, helping people upgrade faster than ever before. And time is running out. The free upgrade offer will end on July 29 and we want to make sure you don’t miss out. After July 29th, you’ll be able to continue to get Windows 10 on a new device, or purchase a full version of Windows 10 Home for $119,” Yusuf Mehdi, corporate vice president of Microsoft’s Windows and Devices Group, said in a blog post.

It remains to be seen if Microsoft will offer free Windows operating systems in the future, however users who upgrade to Windows 10 will get all future updates to the operating system for free.

“If you upgrade today, not only will you get your hands on a ton of new awesome stuff that will work as soon as you upgrade, upgrading now means you’re going to get all future updates for free, like the Anniversary update that’s coming soon,” Microsoft marketing manager Bryan Roper said in the above video.

Finally, Microsoft has announced that over 300 million active devices are now running Windows 10 – putting them a third of the way to their goal of 1 billion within the first 2-3 years of release.

    Well with 7 if the nag you to upgrade you can just uninstall that update, if an update breaks something on your computer you can uninstall it or not even install it in the first place. Win 10? you’re just screwed.

    Microsoft decides not enough people are using their edge browser and bing? you’re just screwed there isn’t anything you can really do. They even put ads in the solitaire game, that’s how much they are shaking you down for money at this point.

  17. Krimhelm
    May 5, 2016 at 3:57 pm

    I feel sorry for anyone that refuses the update. Paranoia is so strong, that even people I thought were smart aren’t so smart.
    These are the reasons I found valid for refusing the update.
    1: Hardware is incompatible.
    2: Fear of losing data. No back-ups prepared or possible.
    3: I’m fine with windows 7. Good for you, you know nothing about Windows 10 aside from maymays, so don’t talk for others regarding Windows 10.

    These are invalid:
    1: Spying. Policies and some tweaks can get rid of most of problematic ones. You think you’re free from spying already? Guess again. Just move to Linux if you’re so paranoid. Get off the internet too, and change your phone number.
    2: Compatibility with old games. Still works here, not sure what everyone’s on about. If you can run Win10, you can run a VM. You can also dual boot with no little to no issues, especially if you don’t use the “app” version of programs.
    3: Compatibility with Japanese games. Do your research, most of the high profiled ones run better on 10. Unless you’re a pirate, you have nothing to worry about.
    4: I don’t like tablet mode. Default mode is the usual windows mode.

    These are points of concern.
    1 Update nagging. You’ll have to update eventually. I do it once a month. May cause problems for old computers that haven’t been reformatted.
    2: The free upgrade is tied to your motherboad. If you plan on upgrading that, then you might be out of luck. Better fork up that $100, or be a pirate.

    This is for people who aren’t paranoid.
    1: Make sure its the motherboard you want to use.
    2: Make sure you back-up all of your important stuff.
    3: Do an install of your choice. Either fresh or preserving data.
    4: If you don’t like it, roll back to whatever windows you’re using.

    So while paranoid kiddies bicker about useless trite, I’ll just sit here and watch the Windows 10 usage on steam go up, up, up.

    Oh man, I’ve got to hurry! No wait. The opposite of that. I’m fine with Windows 7 and I removed the harassing update that constantly reminds me of 10.

  19. Arenegeth
    May 5, 2016 at 4:00 pm

    I already bought a standalone version of Windows 10 when I build my new PC, I think it cost a bit more than $119…

    I kinda had to, since my Windows 7 was tied to my laptop and the last standalone Windows I owned was XP. And my XP disc decided to literally crumble one day not too long ago.

    I was gonna buy a standalone Windows 7 instead, but couldn’t find a copy locally, and then I thought about ‘future proofing for DirectX 12… Piracy was an option I guess, but one thing I wouldn’t pirate is OS.

    I regret it now, so much useless fluff, and though most of the spyware stuff can be disabled, I hate how they attach One Drive onto everything.

    I’m keeping Windows 7 on my laptop though, figure it will supported for at least a couple of years still and I could always ‘upgrade’ to 10 even after the free offer expires, since I already wast.. Eh I mean ‘invested’ the money.

    Wait- “upgrading now means you’ll get free updates from now on.”
    Holy shit, are Microsoft literally going to force everyone who upgrades later to ALSO pay for updates?! What the fuck.

    Falling shy of a VERY wide-spread virus making Win 7 “unsafe” (for morons with no virus protection), or every video game refusing to run on Win 7 (they’ll be a work around- and if not Linux Mint + Wine Box), NO ONE with any knowledge will upgrade to Win 10- and they won’t let others either.

    Hell a few websites have also accused Win 10 from fudging how many downloads they’ve really had based on data available (not even close to 1mil). Wonder if this reminder is more begging.

    Here’s betting they’ll extend this “free” offer for a few more months. Or claim it was _so_ popular they’ll make it free forever. _Thanks_.

    They could be hinting at a W98 SE or W8.1 style update, some sort improved version with the previous updates built-in. Makes sense if W10 is really the final one.

    I certainly would hope so anyway.

    Sadly when you tell people about dmwappushsvc they just look at you if you just had an epileptic attack. And fuck that whore Cortana. She refuses to stay down

    I hate how everything tries to track you and datamine you now. Fuck this new internet economy. But I’m sure MS will makw bank. Everyone will be on win10 in five years guaranteed, just like the last time.

    I’ve been using Windows 10 with no problems so far. Just make sure you install some third-party programs such as Spybot Anti-Beacon, Destroy Windows 10 Spying, and WinAero Tweaker and you be all set. Also, make sure to use Uninstall Edge and Uninstall Contana from the WinAero Tweaker website to free up some memory since Cortana hogs up quite a bit of memory. :D

    If spying is your concern dont worry, you’ve been getting spied on for years from your phone, your google account, and whatever else u use. Personally though im a fan of the overall improvements to the OS including the speed. Lets not pretend like W7 was overly stable. Even though that was one of my favorite OS’s for an extremely long time, i’ve had far less issues on 10.

    So Microsoft: how is your compromised OS that was made to work for mobile devices, non-game mode XBOX, gaming PCs and office work doing? Because I am pretty sure people who use Windows for office work environments will just continue to use 7, offline or building communication only if possible. Its not user friendly for that market and I’d be surprised if offices go to Android for their use.
    Stop trying to be Apple. No-one wants another company which does the same stuff Apple does just with a worse user experience. Here I ask: was it worth alienating your office dominance to get more money?

    I swear on my balls.. Never had a crash.. The crashed I had were because I overclocked too much my graphic card (the fault in this case lies in me going too much over the stable frequencies) or because I modded too much my games (in this case the fault lies in the graphic/game engine) but the OS was stable.. I don’t know if is because I began to use a PC when I was 6 years old (a Compaq Deskpro 80286) because my father is a programmer and I do that as well as a job (mainly PHP, HTML, CSS, Java, C/C++/Visual C) but I always treated my PCs very well and never had a crash..

    Yes you’re.. Newer doesn’t mean better.. I used when I was a kid DOS and Windows 3.1 and I still love their KISS principles.. I also still love my Commodore Amiga 500.. Blame my age.. My linux distro is Slackware with the kernel compiled by me without the useless crap and every program compiled by me with bleeding edge source.. Then I debug it and if unstable I repull a stable SVN from the depository and no problems anymore.. So yeah I’m an old fag and proud of it.. Enjoy your telemetrics and unefficient OS design.. KISS forever! (Keep it simple stupid)

    I don’t have a phone.. And by the way I’m not american so no NSA spying me lol.. I use my google mail account only to subscribe to sites where I buy games so not much to spy.. I simply don’t want someone deciding for me when I must update or upgrade..

    Thanks for the offer Microsoft, but I’ll stick with 7 until it loses support. And even then, I’ll most likely just upgrade to 8.1.

    So because there are already methods of spying on me I should just fucking throw myself out there and just put everything I do for people to see?
    That’s absolutely retarded.

    The battle against malware, spyware and keyloggers is over. They’re now baked into your operating system as features.

    Arguably, DX12 is the only reason to upgrade.

    Ditto, hopefully AA3 have some semblance of Story Mode.

    Also CM3D2 gents?

    Uhh… I remember the crashfest with nVidia driver a week after installing 7.

    Wacom driver triggering BSOD.

    Heck, system restore triggering BSOD/

    Arguably 10 is harder to crash.

    Implying that Win7 doesn’t send telemetry data.

    Pretty weird Win7 became the modern WinXP equivalent of “I’m not upgrading”

    Reminds me of the pain supporting older employees with aging WinXP laptop (weirdly most of them are Toshiba Protege and Compaq Presario)

    VM is your answer, heck you can run vanilla MS-DOS or 3.1 for maximum retro.

    Love that game. The customization is nice, and the graphics are amazing.

    Been a while since I last played. Maybe I should give my girls a visit ;3

    Recommend grabbing the Plus/Append pack – so much content (also +2 personalities)

    The long hair clipping issues still there though, Illusion had it better on their side.

    I’m aware of the telemetry (which is also present on Win8 updates from what I’ve heard too), but if you never update from a fresh install of Win7 you will never have that shit.

    You dont need updates anyway concerning security if you arent a retard with your computer anyway

    Thank fuck for this, hopefully they’ll stop hacking my computer to reinstall their ¤#%&#%&Y#%&Y Adware for Win10 once a month now that the frrebie season is over.

    Virtual Machine. Essentially giving you the capability of booting two or more OS’s in one computer. I used to have one with both 7 and Linux installed.

    I may use that if DX12 will make TW Warhammer run way better than DX11.

    DX12, a 50% smaller install size, and much lower resource usage.

    I was going to stick with Windows 7 (I recently had the Mirror’s Edge Catalyst beta wipe my entire f-ing Windows installation and had to do a fresh install) and it took roughly 80 GB of space. Then a friend was talking about Rise of the Tomb Raider and DX12 which I’d totally forgotten about, so I decided to hit up a key site and bought Win 10 Pro for $20 (my Win 7 key is a legit Enterprise key…long story). Win 10 only took about 40 GB after install, boots in half the time, and it allows me to play all DX12 games, so I’m happy with it. It takes two seconds to turn off the “spy” features during installation, so it’s not an issue.

    Well now we know you’re a troll if you’re claiming that Win 95 / 98 never crashed on you. You probably weren’t even born before 1998.

    >playing AAA trash which are the sole games using DX12 shit
    >”lol you can turn off spy shit pre-installed in a closed-source OS nothing can go wrong”
    Of course you’d love Win10 you faggot
