Windows 10 upgrade

Win10During yesterday’s press event for Windows 10, Microsoft delivered a huge number of announcements. Some small, some large. One of the most sought tidbits of information about Windows 10, has been price.

So, what will Windows 10 cost?

Terry Myerson, Microsoft’s Executive Vice President of Operating Systems, took the stage first yesterday and surprised the crowd by giving an official statement on pricing.

When Windows 10 officially releases, users of Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, and Windows Phone 8.1 will be able to upgrade to Windows 10 for free. But, there’s a catch. Microsoft is putting a deadline on the deal. One year after Windows 10 releases, the new OS will no longer be offered as a free upgrade. Myerson gave no indication of what the upgrade might cost after that.
