I recently upgraded my computer to Windows 10 using the “Windows 10 free upgrade for customers who use assistive technologies.” I don’t use assistive technologies, but there’s no point during the upgrade where Microsoft ask for proof that you actually use assistive technology. lately I saw in an article about this upgrade, that a Microsoft spokesman told CNET that they extended this free offer to people who use assistive technology, and that it’s not intended to be a workaround for people who don’t use assistive technology and who missed the deadline for the free offer. Basically, that’s exactly what I did, so now am I required according to Halacha to pay for the upgrade the amount it would cost if I wouldn’t have used this free offer?

I think you should tell them and tell them you’d rather go back to your previous windows if they wish and see what they say.
