    My last successful activation was last month, a clean install on a 'never upgraded' machine with a W8.1 key embedded in the firmware. I've seen more recent reports of success though. Consensus opinion seems to be MS have no pressing desire to turn it off.
    MS would have a problem if they did turn it off.

    Under the terms of the EULA, a retail key can be used an unlimited number of times as we know.

    Also the EULA clearly says upgrades inherit the characteristics of original key.

    As you do not get an upgrade key from 7/8, only a generic key and digital licence, then you only have limited transferability using the activation troubleshooter.

    So by turning off activation using old keys, the windows 10 upgrade would be downgraded in status in effect to oem (but with some limited retail status).

    MS would not be complying with their own EULA!

    However, MS could change things so only retail keys worked in the future.

    I do not think MS really care that much though - they want as many people on W10 as possible.

    They were prepared to give away 1billion upgrade free. By allowing upgrades to still be done unofficially, they edge towards that goal.

    Got this message... not sure what it means tho'...
    Universal Store App Ingestion signing disruption
    We’re seeing app install failures with error code 0x800b0100 because of incorrect store signing. We have fixed the issue for new submissions and are actively working on rectifying the impacted apps.

    There are still crashes coming through but no-one has posted an issue on GitHub so not sure what's causing it... I have a suspicion that Win7 key checking is the issue (as we know, it's slow at the best of times)
