Microsoft has announced that when Windows 10 launches later this year, it will be available as a free upgrade.
The company says the upgrade will be available for free for the first year that Windows 10 is available.
The upgrade will be available to anyone using Windows 7, Windows 8.1, or Windows Phone 8.1
Windows 10 is designed to run across a range of devices including phones, tablets, laptops and desktops, and Microsoft says it’s thinking of Windows as a service… meaning that in addition to free upgrades from older versions of the operating system, the company will offer free updates to the operating system.
We got our first look at Windows 10 for PCs last year, but the company is showing off Windows 10 on phones and other devices at an event today.
