If you’re rocking Windows 7/8.1, you only have a few days left to make your decision

Windows 10 has been a free upgrade for Windows 7/8.1 users for the past year, but the deadline for that freebie is about to expire towards the end of this week.

So if you’ve been on the fence, and you’ve not upgraded yet, be aware that you’ve only got a few days left to make the move – the offer expires when Friday comes to a close (July 29).

After that, you’ll have to pay for Windows 10, and the operating system will set you back £100 (or $120 over in the US and AU$179 down under).

Boosted adoption

Windows 10 has been picking up users at a decent pace, and we expect that the figures for July will prove to be a big boost, given that a fair number of those who have been mulling the upgrade over the past year will likely pull the trigger to avoid having to fork out a later date.

Microsoft’s newest OS has already proved particularly popular with gamers, because it offers DirectX 12 support which is a major boon.  Indeed, almost half of PC gamer’s on Steam are now running Windows 10.

And following the cessation of the free upgrade, Microsoft will be pushing out the big Anniversary Update (a week tomorrow, August 2), complete with many new features including bolstered security and a host of improvements to the Edge browser.
