The free upgrade to Windows 10 officially concluded on July 29, 2016. With more than 350,000,000 computers now running Windows 10, this has been Microsoft’s best ever operating system launch. We are now told to expect feature upgrades (new versions) roughly twice annually from this point forward – a pattern established by Apple and Android.
I am awed by the uncanny ability of Microsoft to give away billions of dollars of Windows 10 software while thoroughly annoying millions of users. The company is faced by class action suits in the USA and Israel for aggressive marketing maneuvers – including “accidentally” installing Windows 10 even when the owners had refused daily for months.
