    W10 activation servers down?

    Is it over? I'm getting a server down message when trying to activate W10. Anyone know what time Microsoft is supposed to pull the plug on the free update? Anyone else having this problem?

    Downloading and activating Windows 10 is going to be problematic for many people and it will only get worse in the final hours. There will be a limit on simultaneous connections and to many it will appear the servers are down. Downloading and activation will still work after the deadline, you will just have to have a purchased key.
