Ms appear to have announced that they will be ending the free upgrade period on July 29th and that when they do so they will also be disabling GWX and rolling out updates to remove it from windows 7/8.1 computers.
This ofcourse begs the question of whether we can expect GWX to get more aggressive in the remaining few months. There are possibilities here we could perhaps worry about, but if the news really is exactly what it appears to be then it looks like good news.
Some people have suggested on this forum that ms might extend the deadline for free upgrade, if so they will no doubt also extend the time for which GWX acts, but given that ms has made the announcement NOW that GWX and the free upgrade period will end on July the 29th it seems a little late for them to be doing something they plan to change later, so I would guess that the end of GWX really is on the horizon.
It's not over yet, things might get tougher before they get better, but after July 29th we shouldn't be seeing any more of these:
