    3. When I posted the note about the end of Windows 7 support on the FreeBMD lists I also posted it to another list that I manage, the Glamorgan list. This was one of the replies received. I can't vouch or its accuracy. It may be worth checking out. Jeff List admin, FreeBMD mailing lists -- Hello Jeff and List I occasionally use this site, so the advice should be sound. This is the message I had from them today: Windows 7 is done. Here's how to get Windows 10 for free RIP Windows 7. If you haven't upgraded yet to Windows 10, follow these simple steps. January 14, 2020 9:06 PM PST Microsoft is encouraging Windows 7 users to upgrade to Windows 10 before support for the former ends in January 2020. Stephen Shankland/CNET With support for Windows 7 officially over as of today, Microsoft is encouraging users to upgrade to Windows 10 to keep devices running securely and smoothly. On Microsoft's website, the Windows 10 Home operating system costs $139 to download. However, you don't necessarily have to shell out the cash: A free upgrade offer from Microsoft that technically ended in 2016 still works. When Windows 10 was first released in July 2015, Microsoft offered an unprecedented free upgrade offer for Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 users, good through July 2016. But in 2017, Ed Bott of CNET sister site ZDNet reported that the free upgrade tool was still functional. I tried it out in November 2019, and was able to upgrade a 2014 Dell OptiPlex 9020 desktop from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro. As of January 2020, readers are still emailing me and commenting below, saying that it's worked for them as well. https://www.cnet.com/how-to/windows-7-done-heres-how-to-get-windows-10-for-f ree/?ftag=CAD-04-10abf6e&bhid= Regards Gareth On Tuesday, 14 January 2020, 12:24:50 GMT, Jeff Coleman via GLAMORGAN <glamorgan@rootsweb.com> wrote: If the file converter is useful, please advise what it is and where from.
