Just a couple of hours ago, Microsoft shared some fantastic features available in its upcoming Windows 10 operating system. As you likely know, Windows 10 is not just for traditional desktops and modern tablets but it also supports a wide range of devices from phones to Xbox to Microsoft Surface Hub to Microsoft HoloLens.
The best thing about Windows 10 is that it’s absolutely free for existing Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows Phone 8.1 users, meaning PCs running Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 can be upgraded to Windows 10 for absolutely free. The only condition here is that you need to upgrade your Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 installation to Windows 10 within a year after the release of Windows 10.
For instance, if Microsoft releases Windows 10 RTM to public on 1st October 2015, you need to upgrade your Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 installations to Windows 10 on or before 30th September 2016 to avail the free upgrade offer. Note that Microsoft has not yet shared the details about Windows RTM release date.
Once your PC is upgraded to Windows 10, Microsoft will keep it current for the supported lifetime of the device for free. This is a brilliant and bold move by Microsoft as this will help millions of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users upgrade to the newest version of Windows 10 at no additional cost.
Those of you who can’t wait for the release of Windows 10 RTM can download the Preview build from Microsoft.
Windows 10 is not just about the return of Start menu but also come with some big features like Cortana (personal digital assistant), universal apps, a new web browser (code named Project Spartan), Office universal apps, continuum mode, and Holographic feature.
