Free Windows 10 upgrade offer ending July 29

Windows 10 free upgrade

Microsoft will stop offering Windows 10 as a free upgrade on July 29 and begin charging $149 for the home version of it in Canada.

It’s been almost a year since Microsoft released Windows 10 and if you’re a Windows 7 or 8.1 user who hasn’t accepted the free upgrade offer yet, as of Friday you are out of luck.

Microsoft will stop offering Windows 10 as a free upgrade on July 29 and begin charging $149 for the home version of it in Canada. Then on Tuesday, Aug 2 – the same day the new XBOX One S is released – they will begin rolling out the Windows 10 Anniversary Update to users.

While there has been some hesitation from users to upgrade to Windows 10, Microsoft claims it has been installed on more than 350 million devices worldwide. They also say this is going to be the last version of Windows (aside from updates of course), so it might be worth grabbing now just to get the free license (InfoWorld has a great article on how to install it then roll back your machine).

To upgrade to Windows 10, visit windows.ca or follow the steps in the “Get Windows 10” app on your PC.
