I knew this would happen, the Windows 10 that was costing folks money after the first year of being free, is now FREE again. Just this last week and now reported in the news, Microsoft switched off the purchase button and is now letting Windows 10 be installed fresh or upgraded for Free.
 
news outlets are posting this and its rampant.

I experienced this over the weekend upgrading Windows 7 and Windows 8 machines that the owners just wanted to 10 just to get over the hump and it over with.
 
correction: Pro activated on a few and did not on others... even when Windows 7 Pro was on the existing systems, 10 Pro did not auto apply... must have been a weird mobo and 7 activation in the past... whatever... got the 5 and 10 Pack windows 10 pro and used one. strange beans with windows 10 activation sometimes...
 
still the windows 7 updates are going to continue... for another 3 years...
 
more to come...
