'Upgrade Now Or Pay $200'?
Screw you. I'll upgrade when I'm good and ready. And I still have CRTs.
Well, a good thing may have come to me who waited. According to Microsoft, 'If you use assistive technologies, you can get a free upgrade to Windows 10 as Microsoft continues our efforts to improve the Windows 10 experience for people who use these technologies.'

Left undefined is exactly what constitutes an 'assistive technology'. I use a mouse to assist me moving the little pointer around, so I gave it a shot. I went here and followed the instructions. No registration, no questions asked. After a 3GB+ download and the usual upgrade gyrations, voilà!

All the usual crapware was there and I had to break out other assistive technologies to pry out OneDrive, Cortana and Xbox, so I'm guessing it's a legit copy.
So yay for me!
And I'm still waiting for the free LCD upgrade program...
