Windows 10: Question - when does free upgrade STOP -- is it local time 23.59
Question - when does free upgrade STOP -- is it local time 23.59
I've done my upgrading (using old technet keys etc) but just curious - when does Ms put the brakes on free upgrade --is it 23.59.59 in Redmond Seattle or is it 23.59.59 where you are located --or will there be a weekend grace as 29 jul is a Friday and from what I know about I.T tech guys a lot of them do things like server upgrades / hardware / software mods during weekends.
From what BunnyJ's countdown clock shows, it's midnight Redmond Time tomorrow. THE END!
It's actually when I set up the timer to match the one on the Microsoft site, it's a couple of hours passed midnight Redmond.

Please forgive me if this question seems trivial to some of you.

I am confused about the one year free upgrade.
Is it free as in upgrade for a year and it is yours to have forever?
Or is it free for one year and then you have to pay even though you already upgraded?
