Windows 10 Will Be Offered As Free Upgrade

A few months ago Microsoft announced that it would be giving it’s famous Office suite away free of charge to mobile users and now the software giant has continued their generosity.

At a consumer event on January 21st, Microsoft confirmed that Windows 10 will be available as a free upgrade for the first year after release.

“Once a device is upgraded to Windows 10, we’ll be keeping it current for the supported lifetime for the device.”

This means that users running Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 will be able to upgrade to the new operating system absolutely free of charge provided they do so within the first year of the products lifecycle.

Microsoft Operating Systems Chief Terry Myerson announced the news at the event which also saw Microsoft showing off more new features coming to their new flagship operating system.

The event has seen additional announcements including the confirmation that Windows 10 mobile devices will come with Microsoft Office pre-installed.

Designed to offer a seamless experience across PCs, mobile devices and games consoles, Windows 10 will be available later this year.
