Recently announced, Windows 10 to be a FREE upgrade for all windows 7 ,8 and 8.1 users for ONE YEAR
After one year, you will need to pay for the upgrade like anyone else.
Terry Myerson, VP of Windows at Microsoft said that the company wanted to make it a “seamless upgrade” for those users when Windows 10 is released.
Why do they want to give away windows 10?
Speculation is that Microsoft doesn’t want anybody going back to Windows 7 or 8.
The whole point is to upgrade the user base to Win10. They’re not going to charge a subscription.
All in all this is great for windows 7 and 8 users wanting the very best from Microsoft.
Not only will you get the full OS for free, You will get multiple desktops ( a new feature ) and access to Microsofts new One Store.
