    If they pull the free upgrade early, then there will be 50 false advertising claims filed with the 50 different states' Attorney General's offices and massive lawsuits. Microsoft publicly put it in writing that the free upgrade will be for 1 year, it would be illegal for them to stop it early. Again, like the TPM 2.0 article, a whole bunch of hand wringing and fretting over nothing....
    They are not going to pull the free upgrade early. No one ever said they would. MS has stated that the one year free upgrade will end after one year. The speculation was all on the side of whether they would extend it, or make it 'forever'.

    What's the matter, don't you trust MS to stand by their word?

    I don't think they will pull the free upgrade offer early, but don't expect them to extend it longer either. I didn't read the forbes article either as I don't like forbes practices of showing a crapload of adware just to get to the story you want to see

    "I don't think they will pull the free upgrade offer early, but don't expect them to extend it longer either."

    They easy way around this 'deadline' is to Upgrade now and then immediately rollback, thereby saving the activation for the device on MS servers for future re-install ... for free.

    "will soon start charging for Windows 10" is all I saw mentioned, which to me means after July 29th. I think some here are reading to much into what was said. Plus, it's not Microsoft saying it? It's just news for the sake of news. IMHO.

    I visited without that certain thing and didn't get any viruses or malware but I had flash set to "Ask to activate".

    As with some here, I agree there will be a small increase close the the July 29th end date. But, as time goes by and Windows 10 breaks or fails to install properly in the future. Where people are left having to try and reinstall what happens then? There could be a decrease of Windows 10 use, whereby people just revert back to their old systems and reinstall what they previously had bought. I know I would.

    I wouldn't put a lot of stock in what a news entity prints. Generally it is only half true if that. I'm sure Microsoft will hold to the 1 year upgrade.
