They\'re BAAACK: Windows 10 nagware team loads trebuchet with annoying reminders to GTFO Windows

Updated Windows 7 holdouts have been warned to expect a notification suggesting that perhaps an upgrade might be in order.

Matt Barlow, corporate veep for Windows, has promised Windows 7 users are to receive a "courtesy reminder" that support is running out for the venerable OS as 14 January 2020 looms large.

Barlow also noted that Office 2010 ends its support run shortly thereafter, but for now the focus is on Windows 7.

The helpful notifications will doubtless send a shiver of déjà vu down the spines of users who found themselves on the receiving end of Microsoft's increasingly shrill exhortations to switch to Windows 10 for free during the operating system's first year.

The "free upgrade" notification back in the day was a bit confusing, and some users reported Windows 10 sidling up to their systems without permission.
