Microsoft has officially stated via the Verge that it would start charging $119 come June 30th for Windows 10 upgrades (Bear in mind that they have always stated that it won’t be free forever). If you choose to upgrade now, you will be joining over 300 million people who have upgraded to Windows 10.

If you can remember, Microsft wants to get Windows 10 on 1 billion machines in 2-3 years and this is another means of ensuring they hit that figure. If you ask me, with the number of reminders, nag screens and attempted brute force upgrades, surely the majority of people who haven’t upgraded by now just don’t want to, right?

However, the removal of the free upgrade might force the hands of baby-boomers who might be scared of shelling out $119 later.

Whichever way, Microsoft is about to see an increase in the number of people who have upgraded to Windows 10.
Would you be upgrading?

    I don’t like Windows 10, still using Windows 7, I think Windows 8 is even better than 10 (for me & according to people I’ve come across).

    Alright: MISSION: Force me to upgrade to windows 10. Check…MISSION: Get me angry and furious while upgrading. Check…
    C’mon Microsoft, what’s this? threatning me to upgrade my system! what happened to customers are always right? i mean i should be the one to checkout and acquire a product at my convenience and not checkout and acquire a product at #NairaPoint.
    Listen Microsoft, am only gonna upgrade just because i love tech and i love new stuff and not because i love upgrades! got it?…i mean just because President Obama can part with 120 bucks for your upgrade, doesn’t mean i would withdraw someone’s salary to get an upgrade!…BTW, anyone got an idea of how much data it would cost to get an upgrade to win10 right now?
