After skipping a version number, Windows 10 was released to manufacturing on July 15, 2015, and two weeks later, for worldwide availability. A free upgrade offer to this operating system was distributed by Microsoft immediately following release. The offer only affects those who are using a genuine copy of Windows 7 Service Pack 1 or Windows 8.1. This upgrade offer expired exactly one year after the official release of Windows 10 -- on July 29, 2016. As of September of that year, Windows 10 has been installed on 400 million devices.
