Free Windows 10 upgrade offer likely ending soon

First, the bad news. The free Windows 10 upgrade offered to Windows 7 and 8.1 users for the past year or so is probably going to conclude at the end of July. If Microsoft sticks with this plan, upgrading to Windows 10 after that will cost about $120 US.

What’s good about this? Those annoying upgrade prompts will apparently disappear as well.

Jeff Rivett has worked with and written about computers since the early 1980s. His first computer was an Apple II+, built by his father and heavily customized. Jeff's writing appeared in Computist Magazine in the 1980s, and he created and sold a game utility (Ultimaker 2, reviewed in the December 1983 Washington Apple Pi Journal) to international markets during the same period. Proceeds from writing, software sales, and contract programming gigs paid his way through university, earning him a Bachelor of Science (Computer Science) degree at UWO. Jeff went on to work as a programmer, sysadmin, and manager in various industries. There's more on the About page, and on the Jeff Rivett Consulting site.
