    Question About Free Upgrade To Win10


    I am confused about the one year free upgrade.

    Is it free as in upgrade for a year and it is yours to have forever?
    Or is it free for one year and then you have to pay even though you already upgraded?

    Hi there

    Who knows -- later we'll get info.

    Meanwhile why not just enjoy the current FREE builds --valid till Oct 2015 -- maybe newer builds will last longer.

    Image previous OS first in case you want to revert (or run W10 in a VM).

    It's much to early in the game to wonder about pricing etc of this OS.

    Cheers

    Free to download for one year after release and it's your forever.

    This question has come up many times and Microsoft has made it clear, you have one year to accept the free offer. If accepted the OS and all updates free for life.
    What they do not say, but is probably true, we will be paying for apps and software.

    I'm assuming it's just like the deals we got for 7 and 8. When it first releases, you would get an upgrade deal for about $30 and then it's yours. It's that, only free this time.

    With only one OS to worry about MS, has to be concerned with Windows 10 updates, improvements and questions from users; its a win win for them

    I hope it works out and being free makes more people migrate from 7. It'll only benefit everyone when people move on to newer things.

    They also want the people with cracked systems to sign up. They will probably be given incentives to get genuine copies and find out who has illegal copies. This is a good marketing method for MS.
