    Upgrade from 8 worked

    Got a clients PC with 8.0 on it.
    Decided to see how upgrade to 10 would work.
    Used the upgrade tool on the MS site.
    Upgraded and activated. For Free.
    Anyone know why???
    P.S. Not complaining, hade done many while the free offer was still around.
    This one acted the same way.

    Because Microsoft has never stopped giving it away. Thank you for confirming for us that they still haven't pulled the plug!

    Maybe we shouldn't "spread the word" too much?
    Although I'm sure they know what's going on.
