The final build of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update is build 14393. The update, which provides a range of new features and improvements, represents Microsoft's last big push to get Windows 7 and 8.1 users to upgrade to Windows 10.

The update is available right now to those who have opted in to the Windows Insider program, and it will be pushed out to Windows 10 users on the current branch on August 2. The free upgrade offer from Windows 7 and 8.1 to Windows 10, however, ends on July 29, leaving Microsoft hoping that the promise of the new update will be enough to get people to make the switch.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I doubt many Windows 7/8 users here who haven't upgraded yet will be wooed by this new update.

If you're still running Windows XP, you're irresponsible and you should update to 7/8/10 or Linux immediately.

Seriously, of one runs Windows XP that's usually because either the hardware does not support a newer OS or(and?) the software does not work with a newer OS, in both cases an "upgrade" is not a solution.


* Windows XP users are not eligible for Windows 10 upgrades.
* There was NEVER a no-cost upgrade offered to XP users.
* Most computers running XP can not satisfactorily run newer OSes. Not Windows, and not Linux.
