Re: Will this be when there's a mandatory update for Windows 7?

Replacing a paid-for OS with freeware against my will sounds like something that'd get them a class action. I'm sure they'll just keep applying more artificial limitations to Windows 8.1 and earlier to "gently encourage" the move.

That said, any word about when the "free" upgrade is going away? Personally I expect they'll extend it indefinitely and cite "high demand" for it...
