Why Windows 7 Users Can Still Upgrade to Windows 10 for Free
Back in July 2015 when it launched Windows 10, Microsoft allowed Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users to upgrade completely free of charge as long as the switch was performed during the first year of availability.
In theory, this free upgrade offer was supposed to come to an end in July 2016, and while Microsoft did say the promo expired, Windows 7 and 8.1 users were still able to do the upgrade at no cost even beyond this date.
Fast-forward to this day and the free upgrades are still allowed, with Microsoft remaining completely tight-lipped on the subject. What’s more, despite news on free upgrades making the rounds occasionally, Microsoft doesn’t seem to have any intention of blocking it.
It’s all about the numbers
