So it looks like there may still be a loophole to allow Win 7 and 8 users to upgrade to 10 for free.......?  rubschin:

Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

Might just give that a try having recovered a Win 7 PC that had been in a cupboard since 2014

There is one point.  I had this Asus notebook that I upgraded to Win 10 and it then demanded all sorts of drivers that have yet to be published.  So I converted back and it never was the same again, MSE wouldn't work so I had to use than pain in the neck AVG.  Outlook suddenly demanding so much processing power the poor little thing overheated regularly and would randomly shutdown

So "I might just" can also mean "I must just not"
Well, whatever nevermind

New laptop has Windows 10 and with a bit of configuring and de-bloating I'm actually really liking it...  Thumbs:

Well Windows 10 and indeed Windows days for me are numbered.  Wasn't so much the software but the paucity of decent small PCs to support windows

One iPad Pro being set up as I type.  It will of course not go as well as I hope but then Win 10 didn't either
Well, whatever nevermind

I'm loving my Asus laptop with Win 10 now... Can't imagine ever going back to a desktop or buying another tablet...

My new phone (phablet really) gives a pretty good mobile experience to complement it...
