Microsoft’s offer for a free upgrade to its Windows 10 operating system runs out on July 29, 2016 – not long left if you’re going to take them up on the offer. After the deadline, deciding to upgrade will cost you circa £99 for the Home version or £130 for Windows 10 Pro. They’re not earth shattering amounts of money but they’re still a lot more than free.
If you’ve been putting off the upgrade because of the initial mixed reviews, perhaps it’s time to take another quick look at the pros and cons. Now that the dust has settled following the release of the software a year ago, it’s gained a lot of support. Some 350 million devices are using it, more than Windows 8 although its popularity is yet to match that of ‘old faithful’ Windows 7.
We can’t offer advice on this one. Whether to upgrade or not largely depends on your circumstances, how you work and the devices you use, but if you want the freebie you’ll have to move quickly.
