As aggressive as MS has been in forcing people to upgrade to Win 10, does anyone believe they will actually stop offering the upgrade come July 29?

Just a guess mind you...but no they won't. Offer extended for at least until the end of 2016. Nag screens to continue even if you have to pay.

I don't think so. They want 100% of computers running Windows to be running 10.
Since there are still more people running 7 than 10 at the end of May 2016, I don't think they will quietly go away.

Hello,

I don't think they've announced their plans yet, with probably means either they haven't decided... or they've decided and want to build up "buzz" but not communicating anything until July 29th.

Netbook with Windows 7 eh? The horror, the horror! :ohmy:
I got a freebie netbook from my neighbor. After getting rid of Windows 7 Starter and putting in a cheap SSD with Manjaro Linux it's almost tolerable.
