Free Windows 8 to Windows 10 Upgrade Useless, PC Makers...
Windows 10 Preview is already here and all eyes are on the feature lineup that's going to be improved with every new testing builds release, but also on pricing details that could be unveiled by Microsoft at a later time.
Even though Microsoft hasn't talked about the price of Windows 10 until now, there have been some voices indicating that Redmond is considering a free upgrade for Windows 8 users
in order to boost adoption of its new operating system and to get more people off its modern OS, which was considered to be more or less a flop.
Now it appears that PC makers aren't quite happy with such a promo because it could significantly impact new computer sales, and some have already expressed their dissatisfaction in private circles.
A report by Digitimes
reveals that notebook component makers “take a pessimistic attitude” about Windows 10 because they expect the new operating system to have a really low impact on new PC sales.
