Unscrupulous could force Microsoft to rescind Windows 10 For Free

Microsoft were meant to end the free Windows 10 upgrade on July 29, but have come up with a way to extend the period. The way in which they have done this is by offering the upgrade free to those that use assistive technologies.

However, there is a fear that Microsoft could rescind Windows 10 For Free offer because of unscrupulous people out there that are coming up with excuses as to why they would rely on such features.

It was not known at the time, but Microsoft all of a sudden at the last minute shared a page buried deep on their website that allows those that need accessibility features to still be able to download and install Windows 10 for free.

We can see that it has already started to happen, as some websites have made a huge thing about how Microsoft are not even running any checks to see if you qualify, and so encourage you to go down the option to get your free copy of Windows 10, even if you are not entitled to it.

If assistive technologies are not needed, then it would be an injustice to say that it is. Ok, we know that it’s not against the law, but to say you need certain features, when you actually do not is not a very empathetic thing now is it?

Do you think we are overreacting here? Do you also think that Microsoft would rescind the offer, or have they just come up with this loophole as a way to get Windows 10 installed onto 1 billion devices?
