Microsoft pitches Windows 10 upgrade to holdouts with full-screen intrusion

New ploy -- and plea -- to upgrade interrupts users as they unlock their Windows 7 and 8.1 PCs

Microsoft's ending of user scheduling before the expiration of the free upgrade offer signaled that the company will not let customers "reserve" Windows 10, but then postpone the actual upgrade process, even for a few days, much less indefinitely. After July 23, the deal will be now or never.

After July 29, Windows 10 will cost customers who want to upgrade: $120 for the Home edition, $200 for Pro.
