As you know, Microsoft notified Windows 10 is “the last version of Windows” and explained that they will be focused on the development of powerful and new features under the guise of software updates instead of building a new version. This means there will be no Windows 11 in the future. So if you are thinking about an upgrade, this is the best time to get it.
Windows 10 free upgrade
The representative of Microsoft has confirmed that Windows 10 is a free upgrade for all customers using a genuine copy of Windows 7 or higher. But this offer officially will expire on this Friday so do not hesitate to own it before it is too late. Your time is running out. After July 29, the upgrade will cost up to $119 for Home or $199 for Professional edition. Personally, that amount of money is enough to pay my rent this month so there are no reason for me to deny that.
Should you upgrade to Windows 10
“Do not upgrade to Windows 10”. This seems to contradict the above analysis but that is the statement of security experts. They said that Microsoft has been violating users’s privacy from collecting their personal information like gender, age, hobby and Internet habits… without your permission. The options relating to sending feedback and data to Microsoft were enabled automatically from the moment that you installed Windows 10 successfully so most people don’t know about them. However, you can disable them in Settings/Privacy easily.
Install Windows 10 using ISO file instead of an upgrade
You can get the latest version of Windows 10 Professional here if you don’t have it already. If you have ever installed any versions of Windows before, I am sure you will have no difficulty getting started with Windows 10. If you are looking to install it with an USB flash drive, please consult the video “How to create a bootable USB stick”. The following are the detailed instructions for installing Windows 10.
