As you may have heard Microsoft is offering a free upgrade from Windows 7 or 8 to Windows 10. The offer is currently set to expire on July 29, 2016. One of my home computers, a cheap Dell Inspiron laptop running Windows 8 which I bought in 2010, was eligible for the offer. Due to laziness and paranoia I had delayed accepting but with the deadline approaching I upgraded on July 4th. So far despite some minor annoyances I haven't regretted doing so. Hopefully this will extend the useful life of the laptop with which I have been generally pleased.
