If you haven’t made the free upgrade to Windows 10 yet, today is your very last chance. The upgrade offer ends on 7/29/2016. Whether that’s at the stroke of midnight on 7/29 or sometime during the day, Microsoft doesn’t say. So if you plan to upgrade, now is the time to do it.
Folks using Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 are eligible for the free upgrade. If you haven’t yet upgraded Windows 8 to 8.1, you’ll need to get cracking in order to do the update because only systems running Windows 7 and 8.1 will get the free upgrade offer as an update.
Why update? Well, you’ll add an extra 5 years of security support if you’re running Windows 7 and an extra 3 if you’re using Windows 8. Also, if you’re running Windows 8, you’ll be delighted to know that you get your Start Menu back.
But the main reason I’d say to update, is that Windows 10 is a really great operating system. Now’s the time to make your decision. Because from now on you’ll have to pay for that upgrade.
As I’ve said before, the upgrade to Windows 10 is good for the life of your device.
