Windows 10 Turns 1 Today!

One year ago today, Microsoft began rolling out Windows 10 to the masses. As departure from previous operating systems, Microsoft decided offer it as a free download for 1 year. Since then, the company has been aggressively pushing upgrades, automatically scheduling them, and giving annoying fullscreen reminders. They have even unveiled an Upgrade Challenge in their retail stores. Obviously, Microsoft is serious about getting everyone upgraded to the latest and greatest version. Despite a fair amount of user frustration, the operating system has gotten pretty good reviews. It is now 1 year old, and the much anticipated Anniversary Update is due to arrive in early August. However, today marks the end of the free upgrades.
