    Future Update (Not Upgrade) Cost (If any)


    I read lots of mail on how the Upgrade is FREE, but nowhere do I see anything
    about the cost (or no cost) of Windows 10 Updates.

    Is that policy spelled out anywhere of do I just wait and hope ??

    Thanks,

    Once you upgrade, updates will be free for the "supported lifetime of the device".

    Microsoft: Windows 10 is free for lifetime of device after initial upgrade, no yearly fee for upgraders

    The "horses mouth" is right there in the posted article.

    Definition?


    Please provide a rigorous definition of "supported lifetime of the device".

    MS hasn't clarified this yet, but they have promised a minimum of 36 months of support starting on the operating system's launch date. It appears that the "supported lifetime of the device" pertains more so to mobile devices than PCs.

    Here's a little tidbit from PC World.

    That's an old article. Since that time, Microsoft has published their lifecycle for Windows 10, and they've committed to 10 years of support (2025).

    All I see is the good news about a free upgrade, but no mention of updates. May be just me,
    but there is a big difference between the two.
