Microsoft extends free Windows 10 Pro upgrade for Windows 10 S users
Microsoft released Windows 10 S alongside their new Surface and Surface Pro laptops back in June with a promise of a free upgrade to Windows 10 Pro until Dec.31, 2017. Windows 10 S is Microsofts take on a pure and independent Operating System (OS).
Microsoft touts the 10 S as an OS built with security and performance in mind. It received mixed reactions from consumers because you can no longer download programs unless it came directly from the Windows Store. But with this exclusivity, Microsoft has better control over its OS’ performance, battery life, and security.
If you’re not a fan of the new OS Microsoft gives you the option to upgrade to the more widely used Windows 10 Pro. They’ve also extended that free upgrade window from Dec.31, 2017 to March 31, 2018, giving users more time to decide.
