    Windows 10 Pro X64 16299.19

    I wonder if MS will turn off free upgrades completely at that time?

    Quite possibly. You can see the posts now - "I missed the deadline - is there any way I can get it free?"

    I am just dying to answer "Yes - as a birthday present" - LOL.

    Oddly, so far this announcement hasn't reached the EN-GB version of that page - it currently says...
    FAQ
    When does the upgrade offer end?
    We have not announced an end date of the upgrade offer for customers using assistive technology. We will make a public announcement before ending the offer.

    Windows 10 Pro x64 FCU - XP/Vista/Win7/Win8.1 in VM for testing

    I've often wondered what actually qualifies as an Assistive Technology - Microsoft have never stated what the offer actually applies to. Now I am prescribed Glasses (Spectacles), for all Screen based reading, in addition to normal use, ( they are specifically ground to focus slightly farther than usual reading glasses for use on screens - Is this an Assistive technology?

    This offer is something that I am not going to use as I have other legit sources for Windows, but would be interesting to know - Is there a definition of Assistive Technologies that is used In the US as there is nothing specific here in the UK that I am aware of

    I don't see why they wouldn't support the ones they gave away. I believe most of us are still supported so....

    Anyway you just won't be able to get the OS for free anymore (supposedly).

    This discussion is somewhat academic since the normal upgrade route still works. I've just bought a cheap Windows 7 licence for an old PC and upgraded it to Windows 10 Pro FCU using the Media Creation Tool. Windows 10 shows as activated with a digital licence linked to my MS account.
