Microsoft announced the last chance to upgrade your older Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 to the latest Windows 10 Anniversary update, As Anniversary update is now the oldest supported Windows 10 on the market. Microsoft officially ended the Get window 10 program on July 29, back in 2016. An upgrade program for anyone who is using an earliar version of genuine windows.
However, the company left a big loophole in a separate announcement. Under that announcement, individuals can receive the free upgrade by using assistive technologies. And a Microsoft spokesperson also said at that time:
We are not restricting the free upgrade offer to specific assistive technologies. If you use assistive technology on Windows, you are eligible for the free upgrade offer. That said, it is not intended to be a workaround for people who don’t use assistive technology and who missed the deadline for the free offer.
Some time ago, Microsoft quietly updated their FAQ section. Once where it was written, “We will make a public announcement prior to ending the offer.” now has been replaced by, “The accessibility upgrade offer expires on December 31, 2017.
The general upgrade to windows 10 FAQ page has been revised on Microsoft website. The page is now showing the last reviewed date of October 24, 2017
If you want to get your free upgrade to Windows 10 all you require is the “assistive technologies”. But you need to act soon as the offer will expire on December 31, 2017
Although there not seem to be any practical change by this announcement. Most of the individual and small businesses have said no to the upgrade and are hanging to the older hardware and operating system by choice.
On the other hand, it raises a question, whether Microsoft plans to tighten its automatic issuance of a digital license for Windows 10. Guess w have to wait till the new year to find the answer to this question.
