Of course, no one other that MS will know for a fact if the free offer will be extended or not but the rate and way MS has been increasing the intensity of their campaign to get people to switch over to Win 10 strongly suggests that they will extend the free offer if MS isn't satisfied with the number of people who have switched by the current deadline.
Purely speculation LF, purely speculation, so many people have switched back to what they had.

TBH It's in MSFT's interest not to extend the offer, then upgraders need to pay.

What about those who received the notice to choose between installing Win 10 now or tonight, the so called mistake MS made a while back? The way out of that one was to click on the little X in the upper right corner but most people did not know that.

Again, what seems obvious to most of us is NOT that obvious to most people, including what seems to us to be simple yes an no choices.

Frankly, your attitude that people who are not as knowledge as you seem to think they should be should not allowed near computers is sad. Not everyone is going to as gifted as you when it comes to computers but they still need to use them in most jobs and, often, in their personal lives (though smart phones have taken over that need for most of those).

Exactly, I mean I`m surprised they did it in the 1st place, but to keep doing it just seems foolish.

Did MS just say hey, we don`t need money anymore, we`ll pay our employees with rice.

I for one just know that I`d work 7 days a week for MS for free, even on Christmas, Easter, overtime, you name it

Exactly, just as it is pure speculation they will not extend it.

But it`s not speculation, it`s fact, they have stated it, there I`ve said it twice.

Show me some MS articles by MS that state they will extend it, or hint at it, or anything to that affect ......

I'm not surprised. Even though I do not approve of the way they did it, it was a brilliant marketing strategy. After the dismal upgrade numbers of Win 8.x, MS (more specifically, current management)needed to have a much stronger showing with Win 10, which this campaign has succeeded at achieving. And, to keep that momentum going, MS may decide to extend that offer if MS isn't satisfied with the numbers by then (or may not; it's mostly speculation right now, mayhap even for MS).

True, but how many people, including us, actually read those? Especially one as long as the one Win 10 has?

Yeah "hey let us update your old out of date OS to the latest one for free" is such a shitty thing to do
