The only condition for it upgrade by the company, was to take place, in the first 12 months.
Why the premise of 12 first months?
Φυσικά για να πιάσει η Microsoft τον υπέρ-αισιόδοξο στόχο που είχε βάλει, και ήθελε τα Windows 10 σε ένα δισεκατομμύριο συσκευές μέχρι το 2017. Αυτό φυσικά δεν έγινε, και ενώ η δωρεάν προσφορά του λειτουργικού συστήματος έχει λήξει από τον Ιούλιο του 2016, η Microsoft εξακολουθεί να επιτρέπει στους χρήστες να αναβαθμίσουν σε Windows 10 χωρίς κάποια επιπλέον χρέωση σε περίπτωση που χρησιμοποιούν accessibility features in Windows 7 or 8.1.
Το πιο ενδιαφέρον είναι ότι η συγκεκριμένη μέθοδος δωρεάν upgrades on Windows 10 included absolutely no control over users' computers, so even if they didn't have accessibility features enabled, the free upgrade proceeded normally.
This offer is supposed to end shortly after July of 2016, but for some reason (guess) Microsoft has decided to keep it and run it for much longer.
However, as we mentioned in October, Microsoft finally announced that it would stop distributing Windows 10 free of charge on December 31 and reported it on the upgrade page:
"The upgrade offer expires on 31 December 2017."
This means according to the company that the vacancy that allowed free upgrades to all the procrastinators will no longer be available from 1 in January.
So if you want to upgrade to Windows 10 for free, you better do it in the next few days.
