Microsoft extends Windows 10S free upgrade period

Microsoft Expands Availability of Surface Laptop, Free Windows 10 Pro Upgrade

Microsoft extends by three months its Windows 10 S-to-Pro free upgrade offer

Microsoft is holding its enterprise-focused Future Decoded conference in London later next month, starting from the 31st of October and ending on the 1st of November.

Yesterday in a blog post that was about the expanded markets the new Surface Laptop was rolling out to globally, Microsoft tucked away a mention that their Windows 10 S operating system, which comes on the Surface Laptop as the default OS, would have the free Windows 10 Pro upgrade offer extended until 31 March 2018.

For many computers users Windows 10 S will be a bit too restrictive. "We hope this provides increased flexibility for those people searching for the perfect back-to-school or holiday gift".

Store access is still available on Windows 10 Pro though, but the core benefits of running Windows 10 S are not available anymore. The event will also feature a Surface-focused keynote, The Verge reports, at which it will unveil at least one new hardware device. In other words, if users were truly buying into and enjoying the "S" experience, we wouldn't see such an announcement.

Microsoft has announced the availability of the Surface Laptop in a few more countries, including Hong Kong, Japan and Taiwan.

Paraguay, un muerto que revivió en las eliminatorias rumbo al Mundial 2018
La albiceleste deberá vencer en casa a Venezuela y Perú , antes de viajar a Ecuador y finiquitar la eliminatoria. Además de ganar necesitaría de otros resultados para ponerse a sólo un punto de la clasificación directa.

Also set to appear at the Microsoft Future Decoded event will be Mark Russinovich, Chief Technology Officer for Azure, and Julia White, Corporate Vice President for Azure + Security Marketing. To ease this issue, Microsoft initially gave users an option to upgrade to a full-fledged version of Windows 10 for free until December 2017. The company first started shipping the Surface Hub displays to businesses last year with a starting price of $8,999.

Do you think Microsoft should abandon the Windows 10 S experiment now?

Another possibility: a new Surface device powered by an ARM processor.

And this is where the sociopathic evil of Windows 10 S really lies.
