We’ve just posted the following news: Microsoft to end its aggressive ‘Get Windows 10’ campaign on the 29th of July[newsimage]http://www.myce.com/wp-content/images_posts/2015/10/windows-10-reservation-install-95x75.png[/newsimage]

Microsoft will stop its aggressive methods to try to convince users to switch to Windows 10 on the last day it offers Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users a free upgrade. This means that starting the 30th of July users will no longer be bothered with ‘Upgrade to Windows 10’ popups.

If they don’t extend free use of Windows 10, adoption of the operating system will grind to a standstill. When Windows 7 reaches end of extended support, then you might see a renewal of interest, but only grudgingly from those who are perfectly happy with the earlier operating system.

^:iagree:
It does not hurt to copy the drive and do the upgrade for free and then after updating, swap the drive again for your Windows 7 installation and then swap back sometime in 2020 (you can do a universal restore image not including hardware as well, just to make sure you can restore to where I can not officially recommend… It is a little work, and may not work with OEM installs, but possible) :flower:

Too much trouble, too little gain. By 2020 Windows 13 or 14 will be out and Windows 10 will be relegated to the pages of history (like Win 286, Dos 4.0, Me and Vista). Or due to their sheer stupidity and arrogance, Microsoft will be Class Actioned into oblivion and we’ll all be running Linux or Macjunk.

Microsoft got exactly until 2020 to come up with an decent OS especially on desktop machines. The can keep the WinX junk on mobile phones/ tablets but not on the desktop.

I guess the uptake on desktop machines (only) is ~5% while it reached a ~15% marketshare on all devices.

The old unbreakable rule - comply with customers or perish - Microsoft can’t afford another mega flop like WinX.

Windows OS-X that is, and quite a new experience I must say, interesting having to fight your working environment for months to shut it up -NOT!
