Could Free Windows 10 Bring Ads on Our Desktops?
Microsoft hasn't yet unveiled the new pricing model that it plans to adopt for Windows 10, but some sources close to the development process revealed earlier this year that Redmond was even considering offering the new operating system free of charge to a number of previous customers.
Does this mean that Windows 10 could be free for existing Windows users? Not necessarily, but at least those on Windows 8.1 could get the new OS as a free update, while those on Windows 7, Vista, and even XP might only have to pay a small fee to switch to this particular version.
While it's not yet clear whether Windows 10 will indeed be offered free of charge or not, some people are afraid that this would actually mean that Microsoft might adopt a completely new strategy that would in the end bring ads on our desktops.
Posts on the Windows UserVoice
thread confirm that some users are indeed afraid of this thing and actually want Windows to be available with a fee in exchange for a no-ad experience.
