I'm guessing this has to do with the End of Life thing?

Microsoft will still let you upgrade for free from 7 to 10 so "if this is true" then not a bad idea.

Really? I still have Windows 7 on my laptop and seemingly can't upgrade to Windows 10?

I just install this saturday windows 10 on a friends pc. I just input his key for windows 7 pro and windows 10 was activated. Under activation it says activated with a digital key. It works!

Is it only with new versions of Windows 7 though? Like newly installed versions?

On the website. It's only Home 32-bit version though.

It doesn't matter. That key will work with 64 bit too.

I'm not sure who the target demographic is for that any more. but a price drop on a dated OS, with limitations no one really wants, who cares what the cause is, Win7 32bit is worthless for most people at any price.

First of all a 32 bit key will work perfectly fine with a 64 bit OS.... Second you can perfectly upgrade to windows 10. Just install windows 10 instead but use the windows 7 key and if key is legitimate it will work. I did it with a friend's PC this past weekend. He has a windows 7 pro key.
