Windows 10 Upgrade - The free software offering has expired !!

Microsoft has officially closed the door to the free upgrade from Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. While it was Microsoft's position that the free upgrade ended in 2016, they have allowed users of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 to upgrade with little to no friction for free. That capability was shut off in late 2023.

While I actively encouraged users of older systems to update their systems I understand change is not always easy to accommodate. 

Those that remain on Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 now find themselves in a situation where their OS is not being updated and the suppliers of the major browsers are not providing security updates. 

This leaves their systems, their data and even those who share an internet connection in their home at risk.

Please if you haven't done so, get a supported computer. Refurbished devices can be acquired at a fraction of the "new" price and properly selected will provide years of service.
