  • Windows 10 S free upgrade to Pro extended until March 31, 2018

    All of you Windows 10 S fans, gather round…

    C’mon. There must be at least one of you.

    Anyway, Microsoft has announced that Surface Laptops are now available in more colors, in more countries.

    At the same time, they announced that the free upgrade offer (or maybe I should say “the ability to move from Windows 10 S mode, back to Pro”) has been extended by three months.

    If any of you are seriously considering buying a Surface Laptop – or taking the plunge with Windows 10 S — we need to have a serious talk.

    The fact that the free upgrade extension announcement came buried in one of the final paragraphs of an official blog post entitled “Surface Laptop colors arriving in additional countries” should give you a clue.
