Microsoft let Windows 7, 8 ,8.1 users know they have the possibility to upgrade to Windows 10 for free until July 29, recently offering more details about the post-July 29 period. The upgrade to Windows 10 will cost $119 for all Windows users while the only users to still be offered a free upgrade will be those using assistive technologies.

The information was released on Microsoft’s blog and confirms the company’s commitment to people with disabilities:

As you may have heard, the free Windows 10 upgrade offer for customers running Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 is set to end on July 29, but we want to clarify that that deadline will *not* apply to customers who use assistive technologies. We are continuing to deliver on our previously-shared vision for accessibility for Windows 10 and we are committed to ensuring that users of assistive technologies have the opportunity to upgrade to Windows 10 for free as we do so.

Users who upgrade to Windows 10 but are not satisfied with the performance of this OS can roll back to their previous Windows version within a 30-day period from the upgrade.  Therefore, if you have been wondering what Windows 10 brings, you can safely try out this version without worrying about staying stuck with it even if you are unsatisfied.

Windows 10 is Microsoft’s best and the fastest OS. As reluctant users may be to accept the upgrade, this is the best choice when it comes to desktop operating systems. Microsoft constantly releases updates and security patches to Windows 10 while previous Windows OS are slowly left behind. For example, Microsoft ended support for Windows 8 in January and Vista will soon join the club in April 2017.

Windows 10 currently powers 300 million devices and is the most used OS for gaming. Slowly but surely Microsoft is getting closer to reaching its goal of making Windows 10 the most popular OS in the world and dethroning Windows XP from that position.
