Microsoft issuing final reminder for free Windows 10 upgrade period
At least one study is claiming that Windows 10 is now running on over 20 percent of all active computers despite being available for less than a year to the general public. A final fullscreen notification box will greet those who have not yet upgraded before cutting the cord on July 29th. Users have the option to delay the reminder up to three more times.
Not all users will see the warning, however, as those who have the latest "Get Windows 10" tool (GWX) installed are exempt from the final automatic notification as well as those who upgraded to Windows 10 and manually rolled back to the previous Windows OS for whatever reason.
Microsoft is making it clear that there will be no more notifications when users select "Do not remind me" as the Redmond company has been criticized for its invasive upgrade push. A California travel agency was recently reimbursed lost revenue and new equipment due to a forced Windows 10 update that slowed and crashed systems.
After the incoming anniversary update that will add a host of new features and functionality, Windows 10 Home Edition will cost 85 Euros while Windows 10 Pro will cost users 120 Euros.
