Some Still Get It Wrong: Windows 10 Won’t Launch as a 1-Year Trial
Microsoft announced during a January event at its headquarters in Redmond that Windows 10 would be offered free of charge to those on Windows 7 and 8.1, which makes it the very first new Windows version to be provided at no cost.
There’s a catch, however: the upgrade from Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 must
be performed in the first year after launch. If you don’t upgrade during this window, you’ll have to pay for it, and this approach is what creates so much confusion around the world these days.
It’s no secret that many people believe that Windows 10 would be free only for one year, but it turns out that a number of stores (not Microsoft’s though) and some service repair centers are saying basically the same thing, telling users that the new OS would launch as a one-year trial, meaning that you’ll have to pay to continue using it after that.
