    If I'm reading this correctly, this link
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/accessibility/windows10upgrade
    has the Windows 10 free upgrade still available for PC's running Windows 7 or 8. It states that it is for people who are running accessibility apps (magnifier etc). But it appears to be the full upgrade-- if anyone finds out differently please post a reply. I noticed the "upgrade now" button triggers a download to an executable file named "Windows10Upgrade24074".

    What I've heard from multiple sources is, this is a legit, full upgrade to Windows 10. And if you actually do use one of the accessibility apps (I actually do use the on screen keyboard), then it's a legit "legal" upgrade. In my opinion, Microsoft left this open because they really do want as many people as possible on the new platform. I wouldn't be surprised if this remains an option for quite a while.

    I have not tried this myself. But do know a few who have.
