    Exact time when upgrade to windows 10 is no longer free?


    Will the free offer expire at 12am 29th July or 11:59pm 29th July? Is it based on our local time zones or ET, etc?

    See post 434 for Kari's countdown clock

    Insider Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14393 for PC and Mobile - Page 44 - Windows 10 Forums

    It seems the time ends when last zone reaches midnight at end of July 29th

    So Aussies get extra 23 hours, Brits 11 hours, New Yorkers 6 hours, Californians 4 hours (I think), Hawaiians 0 hours.

    Thank you so much! That's a relief! I've been having trouble with my older laptop and this gave me hope that I can still make it on time.

    However, I would not bet my life on it
